Dear Chaparral Families,

As the year comes to a close, we would like to thank all of our hard-working volunteers, families, and staff who have helped make this another successful year of fundraising and community-building at Chaparral. We are grateful to each and every one of our volunteers for putting in countless hours of work toward the betterment of our children’s school. We have greatly enjoyed working with you and getting to know you. We are grateful to all of the families who came to our events and contributed their time and resources to supporting our school and community. Last but not least, we are grateful to the amazing teachers and staff at Chaparral who go above and beyond everyday to ensure that our children learn academic and life skills in a positive and nurturing environment. You make Chaparral truly great!

Special thanks to our hardworking and dedicated Executive Board, Committee Chairs, and Coordinators who elevated everything they did to new heights.

In addition to our incredible parent volunteers, we would like to thank Principal Stephanie Brazell for her tireless work on behalf of our school, Donna Welti and Sharon Andersen in the Main Office for their kindness and support throughout the year, Caroline Joukjian and Maryann Dicomo for their patience and smiles everyday in the parking lot, and Jim McHorney for his tireless help all year long – we could not do any of our work without you.

Finally, we would like to thank Stephanie Shipow, Julie Katz & Kathy Levinson for their years of teaching our children at Chaparral. We will miss you but can’t wait to hear about the next exciting chapters of your lives!

Thank you all for helping make Chaparral Elementary the best it can be! Happy summer to all!!

With much gratitude,

Jason Weilert & Carrie Slatoff

P.S. From the outgoing president: A heartfelt thank you to my Co-President, Carrie Slatoff, for being so supportive all year. Chaparral is fortunate to have you and Grace Fisher as Co-Presidents next year – I can’t wait to see the amazing work you guys do!

Dear Chaparral Families,

We just finished the last of our spring events focusing on philanthropy and well-being.  Many thanks to Ben Abadian, Melissa Devor, and Maria Nicolacakis, for all of their hard work organizing these meaningful and engaging events.

  • Our participation in the Family Rescue Center Clothing + Shoe Drive was a huge success. Many bags of clothing were donated by Chaparral families.  Thank you to Ben Abadian for all of his hard work collecting the bags and making sure they got to their destination.
  • Students enjoyed a morning of high impact fun and exercise at the “Hoop It Up Kids” Assembly.  Thank you to Melissa Devor for organizing the assembly (and other ones throughout the year) for Chaparral!
  • Last but not least… the Farmers Market Jamboree was another huge hit!  Students, parents, City Council members, District Office, School Board members, and many other community members attended the event.  Attendees purchased organic produce and products, did crafts, sang, planted seeds, wrote poetry, relaxed with miniature ponies and learned about wellness while listening to the soothing sounds of our very own “Mama Bears” band.  Thank you to Maria and her tireless committee for their incredible vision and execution of this fun and educational event!!

We are speeding towards the end of the year but still have a few important events coming up.

  • This week is Staff Appreciation Week. Thank you to those families who signed up to donate dessert and drinks for the Staff Luncheon on Wednesday, May 8!  This Wednesday is also Flower Day, so don’t forget to bring stems for your class bouquet.
  • We hope you can all join us at our popular Ice Cream Social. We will be selling pizza at a nominal cost of $1 per slice!  We will also have Sports coaches facilitating fun games for the kids and Art Camp will be hosting a crafts table.  We will once again feature a full ice cream bar with toppings.  This free event is our way of saying THANK YOU to all of our dedicated families.  We look forward to seeing you on May 15 (J/K-2) and May 16 (Grades 3-5) on the Upper Yard. (5:30-7:30pm)
  • The Teachers and Staff cordially invite all parent volunteers to the Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast on Wednesday, May 15 in the MPR, 7:45am-8:30am.  This is such a special event – don’t miss it!
  • Open House is Wednesday, May 29 and the food trucks will be back!  Come early and enjoy dinner and dessert.  We have lined up Hang 10 Tacos & Fries (it’s the same truck), Smiley’s Hot Dogs, The Middle Feast and Uncle Chris’ Italian Ice.
  • The final PFC Meeting of this school year will take place on Wednesday, June 5. We hope you can join us as we install our new 2019-20 Board.  A special invitation goes out to all of our graduating parents so we can thank you one last time for all of your hard work over the years.

We hope to see you at these upcoming events!

Finally, we would like to take a minute to thank a few behind-the-scenes volunteers who quietly put in countless hours year-round to support PFC operations and ensure our success.  We couldn’t do it without them.

  • Beth Anson & Lisa Dumke, Co-VP Room Parents, who facilitate communications and events involving room parents
  • April Baer, Co-VP Communications, who maintains our ChaparralPFC.org website
  • Kim Becker, VP Sponsorship, who secures the various forms of sponsorships including fence banners, programs, and digital avenues

  • Kate Haney, Treasurer, who oversees PFC financials
  • Elizbeth Smith, Co-VP Communications, who publishes our weekly Cub Corner

Our West Valley Food Pantry drive was another great event this year.  Thank you once again to Ben Abadian for organizing the food drive and being on the front line collecting the bags at drop-off every day of the week, not even a little rain on Wednesday could stop him.  As a community, we donated so many bags of food (2,000 POUNDS!!!) that we filled two truckloads!!  The pantry was overwhelmed by Chaparral’s generosity. Thank you to all of you who took time out of your busy lives to donate a bag of food to those less fortunate.

Presidents’ Message – December 2018

Presidents’ Message – December 2018

Dear Chaparral Families,

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!

After Halloween, Chaparral once again participated in Operation Gratitude which sends sweets to our troops around the world. Thank you to Maria Nicolacakis, Erica Salisbury, Jennifer York and Emily Clinton for leading the charge in collecting candy donations after Halloween. Chaparral donated over 270 pounds of candy this year!!

Unfortunately, one of our favorite events, Book Fair, will have to wait another year as school was closed during the event week due to the local fires. Thank you to our Book Fair Chair, Jennifer York, and all the volunteers who spent countless hours setting up the event all day Thursday, little did we know what was in store for the next week. Then the first day back from Thanksgiving break those amazing parent volunteers were back in the MPR ready to help pack up all the books to send back to make way for the Holiday Boutique.

Our popular Holiday Boutique was a resounding success despite Mother Nature’s best effort to spoil the day. We are so thankful to our chair, Sadie Novello, who did an amazing job securing an exciting variety of vendors and transforming the MPR into a beautiful shopping wonderland. Special thanks to:
Jessica Epstein for once again organizing and managing all of the food and drinks to ensure that shoppers and volunteers stayed fueled throughout the day.
Deb Shapiro for another amazing Cub Wear sale and for making our spirit wear hip and fun, and the envy of all schools around us!
Thank you to all of the parent volunteers who worked so hard that day to help it run smoothly. Finally, thank you to all of the parents, teachers, staff, and Alumni Parents who shopped and supported this event!

Coming Up Next:
• The Annual Motor4Toys Drive is starting December 10th and will end with a special assembly and car show on Wednesday, December 19. Please donate a new, unwrapped gift valued at $10 or more in one of the many collections boxes located throughout the school. For more information, please contact Ben Abadian, our Humanitarian Chair.
• The next PFC meeting will be on Wednesday, December 5 at 8:15am in the MPR. We hope to see you there!

Lastly, I think it is important to thank all the First Responders and City Officials who worked round the clock day after day to make sure we were all safe. They truly are the heroes who make major sacrifices to their own lives to make sure our community was safe.

We wish you a wonderful holiday season and a new year filled with love, happiness, good health, and peace.

Sincerely,
Jason Weilert and Carrie Slatoff

Presidents’ Message – November 2018

Presidents’ Message – November 2018

Dear Chaparral Families,

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…

Fall Festival is always a fantastic community building event and this year did not disappoint. It was all made possible by the hard work and vision of our Fall Festival Chairs, Miranda Fitzgerald and Desiree Terian. We can’t thank you two enough for your dedication to our school and the hours of planning and work you put into this amazing family event!  The amazing rides, delicious food choices, fun games, and creative booths gave families so much to enjoy. The auction baskets were beautiful and packed with fun, unique, and useful items, thanks to the generous donations from parents and the collection efforts (and basket assembling efforts!) by the hardworking Room Parents. The auction baskets were organized by Suzy Cooper and Karen Spearrin this year and they both did a fantastic job raising over $7,500 for the PFC.  THANK YOU!! Thank you to all of our families who helped with Fall Festival – by donating to the class baskets, contributing sweets for the popular Sweet Walk, running booths, helping set up and dismantle, sponsoring stations, and attending.  All your combined efforts made this into a memorable day for everyone!

October was full of fun Restaurant Nights, culminating in Chaparral Day at The Commons which was a full day of dining and reading at The Commons.  A BIG thank you to Mrs. Cioffi, Mrs. Mulholland, Mrs. Napier, Principal Brazell, Ms. Gerber, Miss Gourley, Miss Regina, Miss Ryan, Mrs. VanDyke, Mrs. Baldwin, Mrs. Shipow, Mrs. Lampert, Mrs. Otis, Mrs. Ekizian, Mrs. Weber, Mrs. Seidman, Mrs. Davis & Mrs. Thibodeau for participating in reading to the kids at Barnes & Noble. The kids (and parents!) loved seeing you outside of school, reading beloved books with such energy and humor.  We are truly fortunate to have such caring teachers who give their time to support our school outside of the classrooms. Thank you to Laura Berlant and Emily Stearn for your hard work organizing so many exciting community-building and fundraising events all month long; and thank you to the many Chaparral families who came out to support our Restaurant Nights and Commons Day.  Be sure to include the #chaparralcubs when you post pictures.  So fun to see all the families out supporting our school.

Our Wellness team had a busy month with Walk to School Day and Red Ribbon Week.  Thank you Jennifer York for coordinating a fun morning for kids and parents to walk to school.  Walking to school is a great way to spend a few extra minutes with your kids, get some exercise and ease the burden on the Drop Off Lane.  Please try to look for other days to walk to school with your kids.  Red Ribbon Week was a success thanks to Mairead MacMullan!!  This year’s theme was LIFE IS YOUR JOURNEY, TRAVEL HEALTHY.  The goal was to facilitate talk within families about ways to stay healthy in body, mind, and heart.  We hope you had a chance to read the healthy pledges that the staff and students hung up around campus.  Thank you to our Wellness Chair, Maria Nicolacakis, for leading the charge towards healthy choices!

Coming in November:

  • The Enchanted Forest Book Fair, organized by Jennifer York, is coming to the Chaparral MPR November 9-16. Save the date for the ever-popular “Draggn’ Dads to Donuts on November 9th at 7am.
  • Get all your holiday shopping done at Chaparral’s eagerly anticipated Holiday Boutique which takes place 7:30am to 4:00pm on Thursday, November 29 in the MPR. Boutique Chair Sadie Novello is bringing back your favorite vendors and many new ones.  Shop for clothing, jewelry, purses, food items, holiday gifts, and more. Teacher wish lists will be available.
  • Look for Restaurant nights at Rosti and Fresh Brothers!

Please feel free to email us at chaparralpfc@gmail.com, or stop by the PFC Office during our office hours on Monday and Thursday mornings.
