Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r Principal Cami Thomas introduced Larsen Elementary staff and students to the Nebo School Board of Education by stating they were excited to share the great opportunities at Larsen Elementary this year.

Hally Stubbs, sixth-grade student council, presented how the students are becoming leaders through learning about how to accept others, respect all, show success, empower self, and notice needs. The school celebrates successes each month in an awards assembly.

Holly Frasche, Larsen PTA President and member of the School Community Council, spoke how Larsen’s Trustlands money is being well used. Students in grades fourth through sixth have one-to-one Chromebooks. Younger grades have around eight Chromebooks per class.

The school is providing monthly parent nights to teach the “7 Habits of Highly Successful Families” by Steven R. Covey. Other areas of digital focus include: Google Classroom, Booksnap, Apps to practice math skills, and reading retells, Chromebook basics for beginning classes, using QR codes to read, Adobe Spark, Magnet Nearpod Lessons, Math HyperDocs, coding, Google slide comic books, BreakOutEdu, along with numerous games used to practice a variety of academic skills.

Holly said, “We are becoming technology wizards at Larsen Elementary.”

The GAINS dance specialist, Holly Margraf-Mayne, taught a whole array of topics across the curriculum. Second- and fourth-grade students then performed a cloud routine choreographed by Holly and UVU dance professor, Amy Jacobson, along with percussionist Nate Anderson.

The Nebo School Board of Education were then enthralled with a combined fourth- through sixth-grade chime choir that is a new addition to Larsen Elementary this year.

The program review is a highlight of the Nebo School Board meetings each month.
