Second-Chance Sam

Mariposa Students were given special books from local author, JoAnn Sky. The author has combined her love for shelter animals and books to create stories with valuable life lessons. 

Students read and did a lesson with Second Chance Sam, King of the Junkyard by JoAnn Sky, illustrated by John Tatulli during their Social and Emotional Learning class time. Much like the dog, Sam, in the story students reflected on the treasures that they have in their life and the importance of finding gratitude in all things, expected or unexpected.

Mariposa is very appreciative to have creative and kind  individuals sharing their gifts with our students.
