Miss Emily Blaisdell was nominated by Mapleton Elementary PTA for the Outstanding Elementary Educator Award through Utah PTA and was selected as a state winner! We have so many incredible teachers at Mapleton Elementary that there is a certain guilt that accompanies singling out just one teacher for such an award, but we are excited to celebrate Emily’s accomplishment. Her award was announced at the Utah PTA Leadership Convention and she was also recognized at the latest Nebo School Board Meeting. Congratulations Emily and thank you to all of our amazing teachers for all that they do for our children.

This year we wanted to show our teachers how much we appreciate them by doing small things for them throughout the year. With Teacher Appreciation Week approaching, we are planning to serve a nacho bar to the teachers for lunch. If you would like to sign up for a food donation, please use the signup genius link below.
The luncheon will be served on Friday, May 7th. Donations should be turned in by Wednesday, May 5th. Thank you!
Thank you so much for your support of our Penny Wars! The kids had a lot of fun as they developed strategies to help their class!
The class with the most points in each grade was awarded with a cotton candy party, while the rest of the students were given a smaller treat. Thank you to Lollipuff for generously donating their time and the cotton candy for each class! Each child got to pick a gourmet flavor and watch their cotton candy be spun- it was a lot of fun!
