THE BRITISH ARE COMING, THE BRITISH ARE COMING!
No, Chaparral isn’t getting a royal visit from William, Kate, Harry and Meghan…the school isn’t magically turning into Hogwarts…it’s the 2019 Chaparral Variety Show! And…. this year’s theme is British Invasion.
So, lace up your trainers, put on your best bowler and pull up your knickers. We’re going to move, groove and dance to the best music from across the pond.
Please join us for a New & Returning Parent Information Meeting on Thursday, Dec. 13, at 8:15 a.m., in the Chaparral MPR. If you’re interested in running a group or just want more information about this year’s show, please join us.
Information about registration, rehearsal and performance dates and tickets will be coming soon.
Questions? Contact Billy Cooper or Meredith Sesser.
As we turn the calendar to November we want to take a moment to thank the teachers and staff at Chaparral who work so hard to create such a positive learning experience for our children. We also want to thank our Chaparral families for generously donating their time and resources to the school and for supporting the PFC’s mission to raise funds and build a strong community. Looking back at October…read the entire Presidents’ message here.
