Mariposa Staff's Got Talent!
On Tuesday we had so much fun playing our team games and enjoying some good ol' fashioned fun in the midst of our busyness! It was so great to see the team spirit, the cheering and encouraging each other, and our amazing talent! Who knew that Elizabeth could wiggle her ears! Thank you everyone for participating! Check out some of the pictures I captured and a couple fun videos highlighting our amazing team!

Congratulations on Another Successful Open House!
We celebrated another year of fantastic accomplishments! Our students came to show off their best work and share their successes with their families! My hat goes off to all of our devoted teachers! Your rooms looked wonderful showcasing all of the learning that has occurred in your classrooms over the course of the year! It was great to see all of the positive interactions between our staff, students and parents! I'm so proud to be the principal of Mariposa School! We have so much to be proud of! Way to go Mariposa Tigers! Here are just a few of the photos I took as I walked classrooms!
Congratulations to our Math Pentathlon participants and Sendai and Bruce for a job well done! They had a great time of problem solving and collaboration! We are so proud of their hard work in preparing for these events and for their amazing accomplishments! Our 5th graders took home ribbons for 6th place in the logic competition, 5th place in construction and 1st place in mental math! Our 4th graders took home ribbons for 1st place in construction and won the overall 1st place award beating out the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th graders of all the other schools! Congratulations on these fantastic accomplishments! Thanks again Sendai and Bruce!
LET'S COMMIT TO FINISHING STRONG!
Teach to the Last Bell! May Matters!
We have 12 days left to inspire, encourage, teach and grow our students! Let's finish strong! I know it is so easy to get bogged down in all of the "May Madness". I know that we are weary and some of us feel like we are depleted. I plead with you- don't give up! Let's finish strong! I challenge us to take advantage of these last 12 days to inspire our students to be and do their best! There is still time to reach and impact our students lives in a positive way that will make a difference in their lives forever! I ask that we remain faithful and supportive of one another! Let's help each other carry our loads and finish strong together! I found this great video to remind us not to give up and to finish strong!
Powerful Inspirational true story...Never give up!
