Mrs. Olson's class has been up to some fun things over the last two weeks. Last week students participated in a S.T.E.M activity. Their task was to build the tallest tower they could using 20 sticker dots and 12 index cards. The students did a great job of persevering and doing their best, even when it got tough. Later that week the students were visited by Miss Spanish Fork and Mini Miss Spanish Fork who read them stories to build character education skills. #S.T.E.M #MapleRidgePride #Perserverance
