VARIETY SHOW 2019

VARIETY SHOW 2019

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.

The Chaparral PFC Variety Show is one of Chaparral’s oldest traditions. Both a community-building and fundraising event, Variety Show is a chance for students in all grades to perform live in front of their family, friends and school community. The show usually draws participation from over 200 Chaparral students and has two nights of performances for audiences of over 600 people.

Variety Show performances will be Friday, June 7 at 6PM and Saturday, June 8 at 4PM. Variety Show sign-ups start Wednesday, January 9. The last day to sign up will be Sunday, January 20.  Rehearsals will start approx. mid-February. For the detailed Variety Show calendar/schedule, click here.

For more information above Variety Show, read the FAQ.

More information about registration, rehearsal and performance dates and tickets will be coming soon.

Presidents’ Message – December 2018

Presidents’ Message – December 2018

As 2018 comes to a close, we would like to acknowledge all of the hard work our parent volunteers do for the teachers, students, staff, and PFC. Chaparral relies on your time, dedication, talent, and generosity every day and we are grateful to work with you and be part of this amazing community. A special thank you to all of the unsung heroes: the spouses/partners of our parent volunteers who hold down the fort at home, support our volunteering initiatives, and enable us to give our time to Chaparral… we couldn’t do it without you.

November came and went in a blur!

PFC Online Auction: Now Accepting Items!

The 12th Annual PFC Online Auction is just over three months away, March 8-17, 2019! We need help from our generous Chaparral community to secure amazing donations. The success of our auction is directly correlated to the strength of our donations!

How can you help?

Request A Donation
While you are preparing for the holiday season, please ask your favorite hair or nail salon, restaurant, gym, kids’ play sources and other professional service providers for a donation. In return for their generous donation they will receive the following acknowledgements:

  1. Each donor has the marketing benefit of a direct link to their website through their graphic or image via our online auction site Bidding for Good.
  2. All participating local businesses also will be included in a full-page “Thank You” Ad in The Acorn, the PFC website and Cub Corner. Deadline to be included in this ad is March 1.

Download the Auction Donor Form, although many businesses don’t require it. You can always ask for a donation and follow up with the form later, if necessary.

Re-Gift Those Gift Cards
Did you get gift cards to a restaurant or store that you won’t use? Consider donating a few of those gift cards left over after the holidays to the auction. They are an easy way to donate, and really add up!

Donations can be dropped off in the PFC or Main Office, or contact Auction Chair, Allyson Watson at allysons417@yahoo.com

How can you help? – LV Fire Relief

How can you help? – LV Fire Relief

If you are looking for a way to help families who were impacted by the Woolsey Fire please go to www.LVFireRelief.org to help with monetary donations. 100% of all donations received will go directly to the affected families. LVFR was started by parents in our district who teamed up with the YMCA to help make an instant 501(c)3! Therefore, all donations are tax-deductible and families will not be taxed on the contributions they receive. The school district is also in support of LVFR. At this time the donation center is currently in need of luggage and medium or large storage bins with lids. Due to the overwhelming response, they can no longer accept clothing and gift cards. Even if you cannot help financially, you can help by telling all your friends and families from out of the area that www.LVFireRelief.org is the best place to donate at.
