The employees of Mariposa Elementary are not just coworkers; they also pull together as family. When Hurricane Irma came through Port Saint Lucie and left Mariposa Elementary with debris to clean up, everyone knew it would take many hands to clean our school. After the storm, Mr. R. Craig Logue, Mrs. Brie Lamb, faculty, and staff pulled together and cleaned Mariposa’s school grounds from the debris which Hurricane Irma left in its aftermath. It was a lot of hard work, but the result was beautiful.
