1st Graders Traveling the World

Did you know Chaparral’s 1st graders have been cruising around the seven continents? As part of their study of South America, students (and teachers) had a close encounter with some real rain forest animals. Thank you to the Wildlife Learning Center and PFC for creating this experience. Students are learning to appreciate and protect animals as well as take care of our earth!  

As part of their study of Australia and the coral reef habitat, students were treated to a performance of The Little Mermaid at the Calabasas Performing Arts Center. Some of Chaparral’s students were even part of the cast! 

Next stop for these 1st graders….Africa! Stay tuned!
Also, please be sure to attend Wednesday's PFC meeting as our CEO, Dr. C.K. Naone will be joining us for the morning. Excited to see you all there!!!

We need an accompanist for Cub Choir!
Chaparral 4th and 5th graders need a pianist who can handle light accompaniment duties for the Cub Choir. We meet on Fridays at lunch from 12:45pm until 1:15pm.
None of the music is difficult. If you would like to see some examples of the kind of music we are learning, stop by the music room (room 20) on a Tuesday, Thursday or Friday. Don't forget to check into the Main Office first.
In addition to rehearsals, there will be some short performances later in the year. Dates are not set yet, but we'll have them soon.
Please consider joining our talented and enthusiastic group of singers to help us make our Cub Choir a huge success.
