Friday the 5th grade had the opportunity to help the people of Houston.  Evan Call is one of my students(Mr. Groneman) and his dad reached out to me on very short notice (Thurs), and was going down to Houston to take supplies to shelters and children and asked for help.  Our 5th grade answered the call and brought a ton of items to help.  Here are a few pictures of Evan and his family helping in Houston.  His dad said they had over 15 suitcases of items to donate.  Way to go Evan and Mapleton 5th Grade!!

Another Chromebook Cart!

The 5th grade is getting good use out of its second chromebook cart!  Here's what two fifth graders have to say about using chromebooks...

Collin Anderson--

I like the fact that we are using Chromebooks in fifth grade.  They are fun to use and very handy when doing research.  The fact that they are fun to use even when doing something that isn’t as fun.  They also are portable unlike the computers in the computer lab which makes it easy to get in groups.  I think that if I were to rate it from one to ten, I’d give it about a twenty-five.


Abigail Peay--

In the fifth grade we use the chromebooks in a lot of fun ways.  One example is we have kidblog which we have some really fun writing assignments.  Some of the writing assignments are writing a summary of a book and people can see your essays and tell you what they think about it.  

Some other fun things are what I’m doing right now.  It is a lot of fun to write and add pictures and also google slides is so much fun.  I love playing math games and typing games on the computers and even though it’s learning it is a lot of fun.  (learning is the best thing ever I love to learn.)  

Mrs. Woods taught us how to make an Adobe Spark.  I did not even know what that was until she showed us.  Mrs. Woods also had a guy (Myles Peterson) come in that should us a bunch of hacks and shortcuts.  

This is only some of the fun things that we have done on the chromebooks.

In science we were investing the forces acting on the water bottle for a successful flip. Students determined that it's most successful with about 1/4 a bottle of water. They know that gravity is acting on the water, but with only 1/4 of the bottle filled there is a force holding the water in the bottom of the bottle, making it more balanced for a land.

The students in Mrs. Coutlee's wrote advertisements for a new friend.

Playground Brightens Up

Mapleton Elementary News - Wed, 08/30/2017 - 5:24pm

Thanks to a local scout, Joseph Holman, our blacktop area received a much needed face lift. For his Eagle Scout project, Joseph raised funds for the stencil and paint to re-do our USA and Utah map. He also provided activity ideas that teachers can use with students to engage with the maps. Students have loved playing on them every day since school started. Thanks Joseph!

Sierra Bonita 4th graders had the opportunity to participate in "ABC 4 Weatherbug" with meteorologist, Dan Pope, sponsored by Arbys. This broadcast was done on LIVE TV.  I will post the Broadcast once ABC 4 Utah posts it on their website.

What a fun opportunity for these students to see behind the scenes and maybe one day, they can be a meteorologist just like Dan Pope.  Students also sang the Sierra Bonita Song, some students were interviewed by the meteorologist, Dan Pope.

A HUGE Thank you to Arbys and ABC 4 Utah Weatherbug for allowing our students with this opportunity. A Thank you, Terena Anderson, for putting this all togther! 

Dan Pope, was so incredible, he took time out of his busy schedule to take pictures with those who wanted them.
