    School Vision and Mission

    Mariposa Elementary School's staff, with excellent support and involvement of our parents and community, is committed to emphasizing academic and social achievement at the highest levels of excellence and to meeting the unique needs of all students with standards-based academics along with visual and    performing-arts oriented programs.


    Though it is a rigorous academic environment, there is a profound sense of student happiness on the campus.  The children are animated in their play, and engaged in their lessons. Mariposa is an educational environment supported by caring adults and a belief system that supports both the academic growth and the emotional needs of all children. Students are guided by our long tradition of the Five Keys to Success; responsibility, organization, flexible thinking, pride, and contribution. These essential elements of knowledge and character provide a basis for sound educational practices and also serve as character education. The collective result is a responsible and capable student body, preparing for a global society.  Branching out, the Visual and Performing Arts (music, art and movement) are integrated into the daily curriculum. The day begins with music from the Composer of the Month over the outdoor speakers. Students perform in weekly Flag Ceremony assemblies, the school chorus, band, and classroom plays. Hands-on experience and discovery can be seen in our gardens.  We work on physical strength through our twice weekly Running Club.  Mariposa is a safe nurturing environment where all students can find variety of opportunities for learning, building confidence, and developing responsibility.

Principal's Corner

  • Dear Mariposa Elementary School Families,

    Regardless if we are in person or distance learning, we will continue to build strong relationships with new and existing students and families. I encourage you to visit the Mariposa Web Site often, utilize all the various virtual "tools" we have and know that we are here to work with you during these very interesting times.

    If you ever have a concern about something or a question regarding a specific situation or procedure, please do not hesitate to contact me.  My email is and phone # is 909 794-8620.

    While this isn't quite the way we thought we would be experiencing a school year,  I know beyond a doubt that with the combined energies of our students, families, teachers and staff we will not just do well, we will thrive. I encourage you to choose kindness, choose positivity and choose to be a flexible thinker. 

    Mariposa is a school with a great deal to be proud of.  I look forward to continuing to support all our students through a strong home, school and community partnership.



    Dustin Hackney, Principal
