Mariposa Elementary Celebrates Literacy at Barnes and Noble

Mariposa Elementary celebrated literacy with a reading night at Barnes and Noble. The Barnes and Noble evening was a huge success with so many of our family and students participating. Thank you to all who came, supported, and participated that evening. Mrs. Whitaker read two stories and the children were very involved and excited to experience their first read-aloud with their new principal. She was amazing reading “Gustavo the Shy Ghost” by Flavia Drago and “You Matter” by Christian Robinson.

Our parents and students were very generous in supporting two programs during the book fair that evening. Thank you for the gift card donations. The gift cards directly support the SSYRA Jr. K-2 program and the SSYRA 3-5 program. The teacher wishlist baskets were also a success. The teachers really appreciated the book donations our parents made to support the classroom libraries. Finally, our drum parade was so much fun watching the students as they paraded around Barnes and Noble. Directed by their music teacher Mr. Evans leading the way! Mateo Paez is seen here playing the drum in the parade. It was a fun night for all.
