Annual Donor Drive 2020

Annual Donor Drive 2020

DONOR DRIVE 100% Participation in 100 Days!!!

We need you now more than ever! Historically, Donor Drive funds were primarily used to pay the salaries of our specialists, instructional aides, and campus supervisors, which make up a majority of our expenses. Given the current pandemic, your PFC is dedicated to ensuring that your funds are used in the most prudent and effective way to enrich our students’ lives while at school, when we can go back to campus and during distance learning. We, along with administration are exploring any and all opportunities for enrichment, and our goal is to reinstate all programs at Chaparral as soon as the on-campus schedule permits. We must be therefore financially prepared to do so through this Donor Drive fundraiser!

Make your payment on ParentSquare or to pay by check or payment plan, contact chaparraldonordrive@gmail.com

Ralphs Rewards Card Program & Raffle

Link your Ralphs Rewards Club Card to Chaparral PFC. Ralphs will donate a certain percentage of your total purchases back to Chaparral when you use the Rewards Club Card that is linked to our school. That’s free money for our school at no cost to you! Last year 114 households linked their Ralphs card to Chaparral PFC and helped raise over $4,000! Information about how to register and link your card is listed here.

* If you linked your card to our school last year in September 2018, then your enrollment has rolled over and you do not have to re-register again this year! You can always log in to your account to ensure you are still linked to Chaparral.

Applications Accepted for Lunch Program

Are you aware that your family may qualify for the National School Lunch Program? USDA requires all families interested in participating in the meal program to file an application with the Department of Child Nutrition.

Factors considered in the application process are the household size and total household income. The total household income is the income each household member received in the prior month before taxes. The information you give will be used to determine or prove your child’s eligibility for free or reduced-price meals. This information may also be used for other state or federally funded school benefits such as Title I funds.

It is important that your student receives the benefits they are entitled to. You may not even realize your child may be eligible. Please note that this application and status are completely confidential. Applications must be resubmitted annually. This year the process has been made easier through an online link: https://paypams.com/OnlineApp.aspx
