Mrs. Toni Baptiste’s third grade student, Jayden Fairchild, put her amazing reading skills to work as she read a favorite classic story to Mrs. Auciello’s First graders! The class was silent and fully engaged as they listened to her read to them.
First graders Jackson Smith, Trinity Andrews, Delsin Geliga, Tyler Rubenstein, and Alejandro Delatorre worked as a team to utilize their problem solving skills to create an amazing “moving” model using gears! They were able to figure out how to get a ball from one end to the other without having to touch it! The gears did all the work!Read More
Mariposa Elementary first grade students enjoyed a beautiful day at The Busch Wildlife Care Center in Jupiter, Fl. Each class enjoyed a tour led by one of the talented educator’s on staff at the Care Center. The students learned about Florida animals and their environment. Most importantly they learned the importance of preserving their habitat and how to care for the animals. We saw an alligator and a crocodile. We saw four species of owls, hawks, a bald eagle, deer, raccoons, vultures, cranes, turkeys, and many more. The children also were allowed to pet a baby alligator, a snake, and a skunk. The day was perfect. On the bus, Levin Mendez Lopez and Gabriel Powell have smiling faces showing just how perfect the day was.Read More
Michelle Smith and Jenifer Scipioni recently were recognized by PNC Bank for their dedication and service to the students at Mariposa. Mrs. Smith initiated our involvement with Grace Packs a few years ago and has been instrumental in our continued support of this outstanding program. Grace Packs, which is in a number of schools in our district, is designed to help students that are in need of food support. Every Friday, food items are sent home with identified children to augment the food available to them at home. Mrs. Scipioni has taken on the weekly logistical responsibility of this program and has even elicited help from a local Girl Scout troop in assembling the food items to go home each week. We are very proud of Mrs. Scipioni and Mrs. Smith!Read More

The mission and joy of Grace Packs Inc. is to provide weekly weekend food for students who lack an ample food supply, relieving the burden many of these children endure by being hungry. In St. Lucie County, 26.1%, or 15,970 children are considered food insecure.
