LA MARIPOSA PROUDLY PRESENTS… The 2014 TIGER OLYMPICS!
Tiger Olympics is a week long event, from May 12th to May 16th. All students of La Mariposa participate in the Olympics once a day in various events. The entire week takes place on the blacktop and grass area in the back of the school. All Olympic events are tailored for each grade level and all Olympians will receive a participation medal at the end of the week! Tiger Olympics focuses on introducing the students to team and individual sports that they might not otherwise participate in. We focus on the importance of exercise, keeping healthy and good sportsmanship. Various Olympians will receive special Sportsmanship medals awarded to them daily by their teachers for their outstanding team efforts on or off the field. As in the International Olympics, our school is able to unite through the Tiger Olympics and come together as a team to represent the La Mariposa Tigers!

VOLUNTEER TO HELP!
And yes, you CAN help volunteer for this event! You have an AMAZING opportunity go to visit the school, see your child participate in the Tiger Olympics, be in the GREAT outdoors and help run the Olympics! This is a fantastic event that REALLY needs YOUR help to be successful! All roles are very easy and you do not need expertise in any area to volunteer. If a slot is full and you want to join, just show up! Volunteers for Kinder through 2nd will typically stay with their class. Volunteers for 3rd to 5th grades will typically work with all classes from your grade. Please arrive through the front school office, sign-in and grab a visitor sticker. Go to the back of the school to the grassy area and look for the volunteer area where you will be given further instructions and a clipboard if applicable. Further instructions will be given to you before your event! Please wear sunscreen, comfortable shoes, a hat and sunglasses, if desired, and bring a bottle of water! It will be a fantastic day for our OLYMPIANS!!
