We need an accompanist for Cub Choir!

We need an accompanist for Cub Choir!

Chaparral 4th and 5th graders need a pianist who can handle light accompaniment duties for the Cub Choir. We meet on Fridays at lunch from 12:45pm until 1:15pm, beginning September 13.

None of the music is difficult. If you would like to see some examples of the kind of music we are learning, stop by the music room (room 20) on a Tuesday, Thursday or Friday. Don’t forget to check into the Main Office first.

In addition to rehearsals, there will be some short performances later in the year. Dates are not set yet, but we’ll have them soon.

Please consider joining our talented and enthusiastic group of singers to help us make our Cub Choir a huge success.

Morning Traffic Reminders

Morning Traffic Reminders

Our morning Drop-off Line is available from 7:30am to 8:00am daily for students in grades 1-5 ONLY. (No TK/K student should be dropped off, even with a sibling). Parent volunteers open the car doors and help students with backpacks as necessary. Please follow these rules to keep everyone safe, keep the line moving and get your students to school on time:

  • Pull all the way forward to the next available volunteer – watch for their cues.
  • If all volunteers are busy opening doors, please wait for their signal to pull forward.
  • Do not let your child out without a volunteer or you will create a traffic jam.
  • Do not drop off anyone on the driver side and do not plan to remove anything from the trunk.
  • Do NOT jaywalk, especially near the drop-off line. This creates a safety hazard for pedestrians and drivers, and disrupts the flow of traffic.
  • Please do not enter the parking lot for any reason. Students may NOT be dropped off in the parking lot.
  • Please be courteous to our neighbors. Do not block their driveways or move their trash cans for any reason!

Medications for 2019-2020 School Year

Medications for 2019-2020 School Year

FOR MEDICATION AT SCHOOL IN THE 2019-2020 SCHOOL YEAR, a Medication Authorization from your doctor will be needed. Forms are available in the Health Office. No medication will be administered until this form is received by the Health Clerk—this includes Epipens and Inhalers, as well as allergy medication, or any over the counter pain relievers, etc. Contact Bennah Christl with questions.

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

11th Annual Online Auction a Huge Success

11th Annual Online Auction a Huge Success

by Auction Chair, Carrie Slatoff

Wow, another year and another amazingly successful auction! We raised $94,000… all of which will go to fund specialist (Art, Music, and PE) salaries and supplies, classroom supplies, furniture and technology upgrades, instructional assistants, and campus supervisors for the remainder of this school year.  This success would not have been possible without the amazing committee of volunteers who dedicated so much of their time and energy.

  • I would like to thank my “walkers”, the people who pound the pavement with targeted local lists asking restaurants, stores, and other businesses for donations:  Michelle Freedman, Susan Ng, Roza Woods, Sherry Shirk, Dayana Kling, Erica Salisbury, Grace Fisher, Melyssa Peters, Minoo Rostami, and The Kim Burns.
  • A big THANK YOU to my “inputters”, the people who dedicate months of their time entering items into the Bidding for Good online catalogue: Allyson Watson, Jessica Nedick, Kelly Greene, Lisa Dumke, Laura Berlant, Sherry Shirk, and Shirra Hever.
  • Thank you, Lisa Opolion, for taking care of email solicitations.
  • Those amazing camp items would not be there if it weren’t for the awesomeness of Stacy Dishlip and Sherry Shirk – thank you!
  • Thank you to April Baer and Sara Traband who helped with everything digital from logo and flyer design to laying out the Acorn ad.
  • To those who have helped with fulfillment and shipping, you have my unending appreciation: CarolAnn Braun, Stacy Dishlip, Kelly Greene, Roza Woods, Ann Park, Jason Weilert, Jessica Nedick and Allyson Watson.
  • Special thank you to Allyson Watson who was not only the MOST AMAZING “party coordinator”, but also pretty much my co-chair, devoting the majority of her time since September working with me on this fundraiser. Thank you for being my “partner in crime.”  I could not have tackled this without you.
  • Special thank you also to Jessica Nedick, the ultimate master of the auction. A million thanks for taking over the marketing aspect of this auction, and assisting with all the nuances of this job.
  • I would also like to thank all the Chaparral parents who donated items from their own businesses and those who solicited items…your contributions are much appreciated.
  • I would like to thank the Chaparral teachers, specialists, and Principal Brazell for donating their time and creativity to provide Chaparral students with fun and memorable experiences.
  • Thank you so much to Donna Welti and Brenda Shearer in the Main Office for fielding all those auction letters, packages, and phone calls.
