Last week our 5th grade students went on a field trip to Shadow Mountain. Students rotated through different science stations and did compass reading and orienteering. They also played had a scavenger hunt/bingo activity while observing things. They had a great time playing nine square, volleyball, basketball, football, and going on a hike. Such a fun day for our 5th grade students!
Maple Ridge first graders have been learning about apples and how they grow. Last week our first graders went on a field trip to Rowley's Red Barn. They had a presentation about the fruits they grow there and how they plant and harvest them. They also got to pick apples from the orchard (and eat them!) and play in the play area and get to know their animals at their petting zoo. The llama was the sweetest thing ever! Our Maple Ridge students learned a lot and had a great time!

We look forward to meeting with all parents during our first conference of the 2022-2023 school year. This is a great opportunity to discuss student strengths and weaknesses, to set goals, and to ask clarifying questions about classroom work and activities. If you are unable to attend during the available conference times, please email your student's teacher individually to try to coordinate a time that will work for both of you.
This past week our Maple Ridge PTA put on our school carnival. The weather was beautiful, the food was delicious, the activities were fun, the volunteers were awesome and a great time was had by all! A huge thank you to our Maple Ridge PTA carnival committee, parent volunteers, teachers and staff, Mapleton Paramedics and Fire Department, local businesses, and so many others that supported our fundraiser. We are grateful for so many wonderful people who are interested in the success of our school and students!
Recently, students in Ms. Anderson's fifth grade class read a story about kids who went to space camp. They then were able to zoom with students at Utah State University who created a satellite that went to the International Space Station. They shared why they chose a path in STEM and the importance of collaboration, grit, and perseverance.
