Welcome to Mapleton Elementary School

Mapleton Elementary School

Mapleton Elementary School has approximately 85 Kindergarten through Sixth grade students. We currently have one Kindergarten Class, a First/Second Grade Blended Classroom, a Third/Fourth Grade Blended Classroom, a Fifth Grade Classroom and Sixth Grade Classroom.

This year, we are proud to announce that we have a new English/Language Arts Curriculum. In June, the School Board adopted Wonder from McGraw-Hill for our Kindergarten through Sixth Grade. Staff will be provided professional development and will be implementing the curriculum, which is aligned to the Oregon Common Core State Standards. Please feel free to contact your child's teacher if you have any questions regarding our new curriculum.

Following the implementation of the new English/Language Arts Curriculum, we will be turning our focus to aligning the math standards for each grade level.

Mapleton Elementary School is still an AVID Elementary. We are raising student expectations and the rigor of our instruction. Staff have worked hard this summer and have some amazing parent events and student activities planned. Keep an eye out for the monthly District Newsletter's section on upcoming events.

Mapleton Elementary School will continue to operate on a four-day school week. Most weeks, students attend school Monday through Thursday. However, in order to meet the state seat time requirement, the schedule shifts to Tuesday through Friday on some weeks with Monday holidays. Please see this year's academic calendar to see which Fridays school will be in session. Please feel free to contact me any time. I look forward to meeting each and every one of you.

Happy Trails,
Jodi O'Mara, Elementary Principal
