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, beginning September 13.
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.

Morning Traffic Reminders:
Our morning Drop-off Line is available from 7:30am to 8:00am daily for students in grades 1-5 ONLY. (No TK/K student should be dropped off, even with a sibling). Parent volunteers open the car doors and help students with backpacks as necessary. Please follow these rules to keep everyone safe, keep the line moving and get your students to school on time:
  • Pull all the way forward to the next available volunteer - watch for their cues.
  • If all volunteers are busy opening doors, please wait for their signal to pull forward.
  • Do not let your child out without a volunteer or you will create a traffic jam.
  • Do not drop off anyone on the driver side and do not plan to remove anything from the trunk.
  • Do NOT jaywalk, especially near the drop-off line. This creates a safety hazard for pedestrians and drivers, and disrupts the flow of traffic.
  • Please do not enter the parking lot for any reason. Students may NOT be dropped off in the parking lot.
  • Please be courteous to our neighbors. Do not block their driveways or move their trash cans for any reason!
