One celebration wasn’t enough, so we’re keeping it going all month long! If you missed National Pizza Day at CPK you have another chance to get your cheesy fix. Chaparral’s next restaurant fundraiser is at Fresh Brothers on Wednesday, February 20, 2019 all day long. As a card-carrying member of the pizza community, do not let this occasion pass you by!
We were honored to attend an event at the City of Calabasas City Hall last week to accept grant money on behalf of Chaparral. This year, the city again provided generous grants to all Calabasas LVUSD schools. At Chaparral, these funds go toward scholarships, campus improvements, special programs, student publications, and much more. We are so thankful to the Calabasas City Council for its continued support of the city’s public schools…read the entire Presidents’ message here.

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.
Chaparral has a new procedure for reporting absences. The voicemail option is no longer available. Parents will now need to email email@example.com to report their child’s absence.

A BIG THANK YOU to our Donor Drive VPs, Amy Gray and Susan Harrison, who have tirelessly worked many hours to ensure the success and smooth execution of our biggest fundraiser of the year for the past 5 years!!
