Hello! My name is Maxine Jordan and I am the new principal at Mariposa Elementary School. As I learn about the school community I realize that it is a “great place to grow.” I am excited to be part of the MES team.
Over the past few days I have had the chance to meet some staff, students and parents. I have also been checking out the school (and yes getting lost at times in this big building), admiring the huge yard and enjoying the peace of the courtyard. I had fun spreading mulch with some staff on Monday as an outdoor learning area is in the works. I get to do many things in a day—-that is one reason why I like my job so much.
As I spend time in the school, I am finding one important part missing—-the students! I look forward to welcoming the students back on Tuesday, September 6th. I will work hard to learn names but please be patient as I might need to ask your name once, twice or maybe even three times.
Thank-you to the parents/guardians for allowing me the opportunity to work with your child.
I am looking forward to a great 2016/17 school year.
