Presidents’ Message – February 2018

Presidents’ Message – February 2018

Dear Chaparral Families,

We were honored to attend the City of Calabasas Council meeting last month to accept grants on behalf of Chaparral. This year, the city again provided generous grants to all Calabasas LVUSD schools. At Chaparral, these funds go toward scholarships, campus improvements, special programs, student publications, and much more. We are so thankful to the Calabasas City Council for its continued support of the city’s public schools.

Your dollars at work! Thanks to your generous donations and participation in PFC fundraising events, we have been able to purchase six commercial-quality carpets for our classrooms, five standing desks in line with 21st century classroom design, and comfortable kid-friendly sofas and chairs for our Library this year. Thank you for supporting our school and helping make it a great learning environment for the children!

Here is what’s coming up next:

  • Yearbook Sales on Schoolpay.com – now through February 23
    • Buy your yearbooks now – this is the first and only time yearbooks will be on sale this year!
