Hello Mariposa@TL 5th grade families.
Thank you for your messages of encouragement and support!
I wanted to check in one more time to let you know we are ready for your students tomorrow! The construction project has been finishing up around us, and the teachers and I are excited to meet the children and kick off a wonderful year of learning together.
Finding Our Way
Mr. Morris’ 7th and 8th grade Leadership students will be holding up signs with our Mariposa teachers’ names on them. Please let your children know that these students will shuttle them from the front of the school to their classrooms when they arrive on campus.
Our teachers have a special schedule planned for the morning, to orient students around the campus and help them find the bathrooms, the band, orchestra, and art rooms, the Learning Commons, the PE fields and gym, our own lunch tables, our SMART-E spaces, and our play areas. Ask your students about the campus tomorrow afternoon!
1. Tomorrow is a Wednesday early release day. Class begins at 8:30 and the students will be dismissed at 1:20.
2. Thursday is a REGULAR day for Mariposa 5th graders. We will dismiss at 3:00. (The 6th-8th graders of TL have a special Minimum Day, but that will not affect our Mariposa students.)
3. Mariposa’s Back to School Night is NEXT week at 6:30-8:00 Wednesday 8/30. To prepare, we will have a minimum day on Tuesday, 8/29. Don’t worry, I’ll remind you!
See you soon!
