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 Nebo School District is excited to partner with the Fiesta Days Rodeo team to challenge our elementary students in the Spanish Fork area to read more.

The Fiesta Days Rodeo Committee kicked off the assemblies with a lineup consisting of Nick Hanks, Seth Perrins, Dale Robinson, Jimmy Gull, Angie Warner, and Kevin Parker along with the Fiesta Days Rodeo Queen, Alli Johansen, and Second Attendant, Savannah Ogden. The students were asked to log their reading for the month of April. The students will turn in their reading minutes to their teacher and each grade will have a winner. During the assembly, the students also learned about rodeo events including team roping, barrel racing, and bull riding to name a few. Did you know that the average bull weighs 2,400 pounds?
