May Principal's Message
Dear C.U.B.S. Family,

Chaparral is an exceptional place, and I appreciate your trust in all of us to provide the best educational experience we possibly can for your children at school. We “never give up,” and we will continue to work as partners in a professional learning community in new and creative ways.

Last week, May 6th-10th, we celebrated Staff Appreciation Week. I am so grateful for the dedication, commitment and hard work shown by all of our teachers and staff. They honestly keep the needs of Chaparral's students a priority. Many, many thanks to our PFC and parent volunteers who recognized our entire staff with treats, kind words, gifts, bouquets of flowers and a delicious lunch.
