                 Beginning Monday, December 6th  Mariposa is kicking off the “One School, One Book” Event with the Newbery Award winning book, “Mr. Popper’s Penguins” by Richard and Florence Atwater, illustrated by Robert Lawson.  Through the generosity of Mariposa PTA every student will take home their own copy of the book on Friday, Dec. 17th.  The book is theirs to keep.

    According to  Sam Northern, ED.D.,  “One of the best ways to engage students with books is by making reading a social experience. If you are looking to increase students’ interaction with books and promote the joys of literacy to a school/community-wide audience, the One School, One Book (OSOB) model may be your answer.”

    Mr. Popper’s Penguins is a classic! If you don’t know the story, it was hard enough for Mr. Popper to support himself, Mrs. Popper, Bill, and Janie Popper. The addition of 12 penguins to the family made it impossible to make ends meet. Then Mr. Popper had a splendid idea--the talented penguins would be a sensation on the stage. And so they were.... A classic of American humor, this story of a gentle house painter and his high-stepping penguins has delighted children for generations.

    Starting December 6th chapters read by our own Mariposa staff will be available on the “Penguin Google Classroom” (  class code vceg4jm)as well as fun activities that you and your student can access. In addition, the wonderful 5th Grade Friendly Helpers will be helping with chapter reading, decorating the campus and recess activities.

    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.
