3 New Portable Chromebook Labs Added at Mariposa!
We Have Great News Mariposa Families!
We have added 120 Google Chromebooks to our school. Through Common Core Standards funding from the state, the district has purchased 3 carts and 120 Chromebooks for student use! We are so excited to have this added technology at our school. Our rollout will begin with 3-6 grade, as our students learn how to access our programs on these devices. There was excitement in the air as our Technology Team unpacked the many boxes. Thank you to our volunteers for helping us. A special shout out to Mr. Joseph Covey, who spent half of the day with us in this endeavor.
So far, our bandwidth has been expanded in the upper grade wing, rooms 9-16. All 3rd-6th grade classes will have access to the Chromebooks in this wing of classrooms. When the cart is rolled to their class, each student will have a laptop at their fingertips. Our students are thrilled to have this experience. And, we are taking full advantage of this opportunity to empower our children to use this new technology. The bandwidth will be done in the rest of the school this July! We can't wait!
See the video below to observe the excitement at The Home of the Monarchs! (It takes a minute to upload. Wait for it...)

LET'S TRAVEL TO STUDY ISLAND
At Mariposa, we've had Study Island for English Language Arts in the areas of reading, writing and grammar for the past two years. Last year, we added Study Island Science for our 4th and 5th grade students. Both of our programs are web-based and your child can access this supplemental technology from home as well. Let's get back to the Island!
Box Tops for Mariposa
Please help us collect Box Tops. If you will cut them out, and have your child turn them in to his or her homeroom teacher, we will benefit as a school. This collective effort helps us purchase much needed supplies and materials. You are bringing money to our students' programs. We thank you in advance for being our partners in this worthy endeavor.
Mariposa is Going Green!
