Dear Mariposa Families,
It's hard to believe the 2016-17 school year is almost here! Though we are sad to see the summer come to an end, we are so excited for school to start. In an effort to lovingly embrace our new Mariposa families, we've created a host family program. We all remember how awkward it was to be new and not know anyone or anything about our cherished Mariposa traditions. Our hope is that through the host family program, we can acclimate new families in a meaningful way. As a host family you would be matched with a new family and provide a bridge for them into our amazing community. It would begin with an invitation to the first day of school "Welcome Tea" and beyond that, you would be their informal liaision to school events and community opportunities. Please consider being a host family and earn volunteer hours for your participation!
It takes a village,
Rachel and Becky (Co-Directors of Parent Participation)
