The second grade enjoyed a visit from the Loveland Living Aquarium on Tuesday, September 21.  Students had the opportunity to learn about the rainforest and some of the special animals that live there.   Seeing a cockroach, millipede, snake, and lizard up close made the visit extra special!

Mrs. Sanders’ 4th graders are learning about our rights and responsibilities as U.S. citizens, the symbols of the Utah state flag and what the role of the President of the United States is. They designed their own flag and also recreated an American flag. They are proud to be Americans! #mapleridgepride #riseup #missionpossible #NeboSchoolDistrict #StudentSuccess #EngageStudents #FocusonStudents #LoveUTpublicschools #UtEd #Loveteaching

Author J. Scott Savage visited our school today! He has written a book that is a continuation of Alice in Wonderland called, "The Lost Wonderland Diaries." When asked who his favorite Alice in Wonderland character is, Scott said the Mad Hatter.

Dancing Rice Science Experiment

Submitted by becky.manning on Fri, 09/03/2021 - 14:20

Fourth graders in Mrs. Olson's fourth grade class did a dancing rice science experiment and it was fantastic! Students had to mix the correct amounts of the ingredients together to create a chemical reaction and make their rice "dance." Their reactions were the best part! #mapleridgesmartkids #mapleridgepride #missionpossible #riseup #NeboSchoolDistrict #StudentSuccess #EngageStudents #FocusonStudents #LoveUTpublicschools #UtEd #Loveteaching

Make a Mark!

Submitted by becky.manning on Wed, 09/01/2021 - 10:44

"Just make a mark and see where it takes you!" Students in Ms. Jordan's second grade read an all time favorite book, "The Dot" by Peter Reynolds. It taught students about believing in themselves, being creative and never giving up. Each student was given a black dot and had to create a picture from it. It was so fun to see the creativity and imagination from these 2nd graders!
