Creating a 9-Square

Submitted by becky.manning on Sun, 05/21/2023 - 23:02

Mrs. Steen's class has been working on making a 9-square. They are determining how tall to make it, how wide the squares should be, and how thick the pipe that they use to make it should be to make it sturdy. They are counting how many fittings they need to keep it together as well. Once it's designed, they will shop for supplies online to determine how much it will cost.

Kindergarten Fun Friday!

Last week kindergarten had a fun Friday! Some classes brought their stuffed animals to school for their “PJ & Stuffie Day” class party, and some classes had a “Teddy Bear Picnic”.  It’s always a great day when you get to bring a special friend with you to kindergarten!

Fourth Graders Tour State Capitol Building

Submitted by becky.manning on Sun, 05/14/2023 - 21:56

All of our Maple Ridge fourth graders had a great field trip to the State Capitol Building in Salt Lake.

Mrs. Mathews’ class was lucky to have Senator Hinkins take them behind the scenes and show them places that general public doesn’t get to see.

Representative Stephen Whyte took time out if his busy schedule to give Mrs. Sanders’  and Mrs. Olson's class a tour. They got the rare privilege of going into the house floor of the Capitol.

What a way to learn about the state's history!

All of our 3rd grade students participated in an Arbor Day celebration at Harvest Park. We learned about Arbor Day and helped to plant a new tree. When you are at the park, make sure to see the new tree. It is in the northwest corner of the park.
