Fourth graders in Ms. Erica Morales’ class at Mariposa Elementary enjoyed playing the role of the math teacher. “Ms. Owens, and Mr. Orozco” guided their fellow classmates in multiplying two digit by two digit numbers using the Matrix Model. Classmates thoroughly enjoyed learning and helping their “teachers” solve each problem. Photographed as teachers: Amorie Owens, and Adrian Orozco.
At Mariposa Elementary’s book fair, many students benefited from a special donation from two brothers, Antonio Delatorre and Alejandro Delatorre. The brothers each donated $10 along with a letter they individually wrote indicating that they would like the money to benefit students who cannot afford a book. It was a very special donation indeed and many students went home with books because of their generous donation! Also, the book fair hosted a “Books and Bubbly” event for teachers and staff. It included homemade appetizers and sparkling cider with a performance from Mr. Guess’ fifth grade students. This spectacular musical performance revolved around 3 books, Ghosts, Took, and The Last Kids on Earth and the Zombie Parade!, which were highlighted at the book fair. Thank you to all who supported the book fair. It was a huge success. Plus, many thanks to all of our wonderful volunteers.Read More
