On Wednesday, March 21st, representatives with the Spanish Fork Fiesta Days Rodeo visited the students to issue them a reading challenge. During the month of April, students will keep track of their reading minutes, and prizes will be awarded to the top readers in the school. The winners will receive a pair of Wranglers, boots, a cowboy hat, and two tickets to the Fiesta Days Rodeo. During the assembly, students learned about how a rodeo works, and about what the participants in the rodeo do. Some teachers and students were even invited to participate in a mock barrel run.

Recently, Vanessa Schmidt was nominated as our Teacher of the Year at Maple Ridge Elementary. Mrs. Schmidt is our special education teacher here, and works with dozens of students. She is very conscientious about making sure each student is successful, and goes above and beyond to help them be successful. Not only is Mrs. Schmidt a wonderful teacher, but her colleagues feel that she is always positive and willing to work with different schedules and grade levels. We love Mrs. Schmidt!
