Mr. Arnie Ayala

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year Mariposa Families!

I hope you had a wonderful summer break and that you’re as excited as I am to return to in-person instruction. I am honored to serve as your new principal. I look forward to meeting each of you as we work collectively to ensure that our students are successful at Mariposa and beyond. 

I’m excited to join Mariposa administration, teachers, and classified staff in the Leader in Me journey and look forward to the successes that this will bring to each of our students. At Mariposa, we remain committed to support our students in achieving their full potential. Through our focus on Leadership, our students will continue to grow academically and acquire the social-emotional skills they will need to be successful.

As principal, I believe in establishing and maintaining a nurturing and engaging environment where every student has a sense of belonging and where every student can grow as a leader and reach their full potential. At Mariposa Elementary, we utilize Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) to help facilitate a safe and friendly school climate. 

As a parent, you are a valued partner. We are committed to keeping in constant contact with you. Our primary communication will be via Class Dojo.  I encourage you to use the Class Dojo application every day.  On Class Dojo, you will be able to communicate with your teacher(s) as well as receive important classroom and school updates. As a Mariposa parent partner, please bring your student to school every day so that we can help him/her learn and prepare them for the bright future ahead of them.

This is going to be an amazing school year!
