Welcome to Mapleton Elementary School

Mapleton Elementary School

Mapleton Elementary School has approximately 95 Kindergarten through sixth grade students. We currently have one Kindergarten class, a First/Second Grade Blended classroom, a Third/Fourth Grade Blended classroom, a Fourth/Fifth Grade Blended classroom and a Fifth/Sixth Grade Blended classroom.

This year, we are focusing on the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts and Math. These standards allow us to focus our instruction and develop rigorous lessons that encourage our students to be active learners and to challenge themselves academically. If you are interested in looking at the standards, this link will allow you to explore all of the Common Core State Standards.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child's education, or the new Common Core State Standards, please contact your child's teacher. As we move our focus towards the Common Core State Standards and individual Content Standards, it will be important that both you and your child understand the expectations within the classroom setting.

Mapleton Elementary School operates 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 at any time. I look forward to meeting each and every one of you!

Happy Trails,
Jodi O'Mara, Elementary Principal

The Mapleton Learning Enrichment and Fun (LEAF) program began in 2008. This grant-funded program provides enrichment, reacreational, and educational activities to students from Mapleton School District #32. Due to a funding shortfall, we have had to adjust the support that LEAF will be providing for our students. This year, LEAF is providing leadership trainings and teambuilding activities for selected students on Fridays. To apply for this program, pick up an application from the office. There will also be six weeks of swimming lessons available to students in 1st through 4th grade. These will also be on Fridays. For more information, contact LEAF: 541.268.4312 x236.

Student Handbook

It is updated each year to reflect any changes that may have occurred. Students are given paper copies at the beginning of each schoolyear, but if you've misplaced yours, here is a digital copy for you to peruse.
