Chaparral’s Online Auction Success

Chaparral’s Online Auction Success

The PFC congratulates our Auction Chair Michelle Freedman for her amazing work under extremely special circumstances on this year’s Online Auction. We successfully raised $21,954!!! Thank you to our wonderful Chaparral Community for their endless support.

A message from our Auction Chair Michelle Freedman:
For a year where we have had to change how we do everything, I am very thankful to all of our donors and families who participated in this year’s auction and helped raise funds for our school and students even though we are not on campus full time. Your donations and participation in the bidding directly funds instructional aides, technology, physical education, art, music and much much more for our children.

I would like to thank the following Auction Committee Members for their help:

Spring Break Travel Reminder

Spring Break Travel Reminder

Spring Break Travel Reminder
With Spring Break around the corner, this is a reminder that the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health and California Department of Public Health continue to require that those who travel out of state must quarantine for 10 days upon their return. We expect that staff, students, and their families will adhere to this quarantine expectation if they travel out of state so that we continue to minimize community spread of COVID. Students that need to quarantine can do the work the District has provided. Students should also complete the asynchronous work that their teacher assigns each week.

“Run, Cubs, Run!”

“Run, Cubs, Run!”

Thanks to the generous support of our Parent community, Chaparral’s PFC was able to donate a new running track to Chaparral! Chaparral Staff, administration, district staff and PFC leadership were able to work quickly to get this significant campus improvement planned and executed quickly to give our kids something incredible to come back to! We are thrilled that the new track will be both a beautiful and functional improvement to our school, giving our kids a safer, smoother and mud free place to run and walk!
