From Your PTA President
It is sure to be another wonderful year at Mariposa. My kids and I are looking forward to reconnecting with old friends and making new friends. Our teachers have been busy preparing for the upcoming school year and I know the children are excited to meet their new teachers and begin the journey of a new grade. If you are new to our school, welcome! I am sure that each of you will love Mariposa.
PTA has been busy preparing for the 2018-2019 school year. Each student will receive a Mariposa calendar, courtesy of the PTA, which includes holidays and other important special events. PTA has also provided each student with a homework folder (K-3 rd ) or agenda (4 th -5 th ) to help students start the year off right and learn organizational skills.
Mariposa is a school built on volunteerism and exciting PTA events. There is an opportunity for everyone to be involved, regardless of your schedule, talents, and interests. Whether you have an hour or several hours, there is a place for all of us. Please remember that any amount of time you give helps our children. When your children see you helping at school, it instills in them the value of learning and doing your best.
Be sure to check out all the PTA activities that you can be involved in throughout the school year. First priority is to fill the volunteer sign-up sheets for each classroom. Check with your child’s teacher to see what spots are still vacant. Make sure to join the PTA during our annual membership drive held Sept. 17th-21st. We would love to have you join us for PTA meetings! See the listing in this newsletter with all the dates for these evenings. They are an excellent way for you to learn about the events PTA is planning and share your ideas and perspectives.
Thanks to all of you who have put in so many hours to support our school and make it the amazing place it is. Because of your dedications, we look forward to another great year at Mariposa. If you have any suggestions or concerns, please feel free to stop me in the hallways at school or send me an email. Your input is helpful to me. Let’s work together to create an environment where our children can learn and grow!
