Nebo School District had eight schools place in the top ten of the Utah County Math contest. Coming in first place is Aktin’s class from Spring Lake Elementary. Nebo had nine placers out of the top ten students. Excellent work.

Overall class scores are the average number of correct answers out of the students in that class. At least 10 students from the class must have played in order to get an average score.

Both Westside Elementary students were nominated by their teachers.  Ms. Bair wrote in her nomination that Lila is a “student who consistently strives to do her best in everything she does. Students look to her as a leader because she is respectful and friendly with everyone.”

Mapleton City Fire Department Educates Mapleton Elementary Students - Answer to Wednesday's Challenge

Each year the Mapleton City Fire Department visits every class at Mapleton Elementary to teach students about fire safety and what firefighters do on the job.

Students are reminded of what to do if their home is on fire and how to avoid fire dangers.

The firefighters give students booklets with ideas to color and take home. Some students even get to try on the protective gear.

A fire drill is held in conjunction with this day at the school. Mapleton Elementary loves the community fire department!
