Welcome Back & Happy New Year!
This is a great time to reflect and recharge as we are almost halfway through the school year! As we approach the second semester, we are prioritizing getting into classrooms more frequently. Be on the lookout for emails and calendar invites to set-up times for the Literacy Team to come and get a glimpse into your literacy instruction.
We are excited to announce that Mapleton Local Schools has been awarded the Reaching All Students through Language and Literacy grant! Over the next two years, the district will use $200,000 in grant money to improve family and community engagement, literacy instruction, students' background knowledge, and vocabulary to improve reading outcomes!
