Hello Mariposa Family! Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! I am so excited to be welcoming your children back to school! We have been anticipating the full reopening of our campus and are anxiously awaiting to see our students as you arrive ready to learn each day. Our theme for the school year is One Team/One Vision. Our team reaches beyond the
walls of our school, embracing the connection of staff, students, families and the community as we educate the whole child to be prepared with future ready skills. We are committed to help our students thrive academically, socially and emotionally.
At Mariposa, we believe relationships are the key to our success. Our school expectations guide students to reflect everyday upon their opportunity to succeed. A – Act responsibly. B – Be respectful. C – Create safety. D – Do your best. We foster a positive school culture with the implementation of the Positive Behavior Intervention Support program. We work diligently to ensure that we meet the diverse needs of every child, every day.
We have an extraordinary staff that is committed to academic excellence. Our promise is to ensure that every child learns in a safe and caring environment where they are guided to discover theirs gifts, talents, and potential as learners, problem-solvers, and world changers. We are excited to continue our long history of success and we invite you to visit our campus and see for yourself that Mariposa Elementary is a very special place to be. We can’t wait to see you!
The 2021 – 2022 school year is going to be an amazing year!

I am Angela Patton the Assistant Principal at Mariposa Elementary! I have had the honor of serving the students and families of St. Lucie Public Schools for over 18 years as a classroom teacher, Math Instructional Coach, and as an Assistant Principal. I am excited to be part of this amazing school family! I believe that one of the most important aspects of my work as a school leader is building meaningful relationships with students, families and teachers. My daily mission is to help ensure the success of every student and help create a positive school environment. I share the enthusiasm and commitment that our dedicated faculty and staff demonstrate in educating our future community leaders. Your child and their needs are our priority!
I truly believe that when schools and families work together, children have a far better chance of being successful both in school and in life. A strong home-school connection sets the stage for a child who will grow up with a love for learning. You are invited to join us at our PTO and School Advisory Council (SAC) meetings, curriculum nights, reward ceremonies, parent meetings, and numerous other events and volunteer opportunities. We welcome you and your family to share the love of learning and success of our children!
I look forward to meeting you as we begin the 2020-2021 school year!
