Mapleton Elementary students won the Road to Success Dr. Seuss Read-on-thon and were rewarded with a visit from Big Budah with Fox13News.  Our students read a total of 308,500 minutes during that one week, more than any other elementary school in Utah! Mrs. Jensen's second grade class had the most minutes for grades K-3 and Mr. Groneman's fifth grade class read the most for grades 4-6, earning them a spot on the stage with Big Buddah. We are so proud of all the reading that the students did. Thank you for all the encouragement and support at home!

The library has really been hopping the last few months. In February, the 5th and 6th graders tried library speed dating and discovered some great new books. There were also a lot of brave souls that went on a "blind date" and took a chance on something different. It was a wonderful way to get kids reading books they may not have tried.

In addition, there will be some fun for the students. Below is the outline to encourage student involvement:·        Encourage your friends to download the app·        Use hashtag #SafeUT on posts  KSL Contest: Individuals will be able to share a screenshot of their phone with the app downloaded for a chance to win a $50 visa card. These screenshots will need to be posted in the contest on the KSL TV Facebook page The school that is tagged the most by their students will receive 100 pizzas from KSL! The contest will start Thursday, February 22 and Friday, February 23 at 3 p.m.  Watch KSL News at 5 p.m. on Friday to see which school will be receiving 100 pizzas! #nebohero #studentsuccess #empowerstudents #engagestudents #focusonstudents #loveUTpublicschools #utpol #uted #NeboDistrict #NeboSchools #safeUT #mapletonelem #mightymountaineers
