It can be from you, aunts and uncles, grandparents, even the family pet. Your Cub Hug can be long or short. The cost is only $5 for 3 lines or $10 for 6 lines. Please contact Toni Edwards with questions.
Dear Chaparral Families,
It is hard to believe that we are already in to March and spring will soon be upon us. Our amazing and tireless volunteers have been busy making sure that the last few months of school are full of meaningful, fun, and memorable events for our community.

This year, we did NOT pre-sell yearbooks during registration in August. So if you did not buy your yearbook in February, you have not purchased one yet. In other words, yearbooks have been available for purchase only since February.
To make sure everyone has a chance to buy a yearbook, we are extending yearbook sales on SchoolPay.com: $45 for the soft bound book, $55 for the hardcover book. This keepsake published by the PFC includes individual and class portraits, photos of memorable events throughout the year, Cub Hugs and so much more. Students love getting their yearbooks at the end of the year and having their friends and teachers sign it.
Please contact Toni with any questions.
Congratulations to the 2018 Bookmark Contest winners. We received many creative submissions, and we are very proud of all our enthusiastic Cub readers. Thank you for taking us on your reading adventures. Please be sure to check out the list of contest winners here!
Turn in Box Tops to your child’s classroom by May 16.
This is the LAST contest of the year, so make it count! Chaparral earns 10 cents for each Box Top we turn in! It’s an easy way to earn money for Chaparral and requires almost no effort. Ask anyone you know to help you collect: grandparents, neighbors, and friends. The winning class will earn a class Popsicle party and will also get the honor of holding the coveted Golden Cub Trophy in their class through the end of the school year. The family that brings in the most Box Tops will earn a $5 Barnes & Noble gift card. Get details and a collection sheet here.
