    Distance Learning

     

    Dear Mariposa Monarch Parents,

    This new school year is here and with it, the reality of distance learning.  I know this is not how anyone ever envisioned beginning a school year, but I do want to let each and every parent know that our Mariposa staff is more than ready.  

    One of the first things I wanted to let you know is that our website is a great resource for information, especially during these “virtual” times. Currently, you can find the latest school newsletter, The Butterfly Facts; the latest Weekly Bulletin; forms you might need such as Chromebook opt out forms, technology policy forms and more.  Please make it a habit to check the Mariposa web site often.  

    Daily Learning Schedule

    Every grade level follows a specific format of instruction.  To access your student's schedule Click Here

    Attendance

    As always, attendance is extremely important for all students.  During this time of distance learning it is even more vital that students are ready for school and be an active participant in the digital learning environment on a daily basis.  Attendance will be taken DAILY.  IF your child is absent from school any day please communicate with the Mariposa office to let us know.  

    Thank you,

    Mr. Hackney

    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

  • Welcome to Mariposa Elementary School!

     

    August 2020

     

    Dear Mariposa Elementary School Families,

     

    Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year at Mariposa Elementary School.  I am excited and honored to continue to be a part of the Mariposa community.  I look forward to working hard this year to continue to build strong relationships with new and existing students and families. 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 dustin_hackney@redlands.k12.ca.us and phone # is 909 794-8620.

    While this isn't quite the way we thought we would be starting the 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. 

     

    “It is our attitude at the beginning of a difficult task which,

    more than anything else, will affect its successful outcome.”

    -William James

    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.

     

    Sincerely, 

    Dustin Hackney, Principal
