They ask for (voluntary) contributions towards class parties and in-class events.
Q. What is the PFC?
A. The Chaparral Parent Faculty Club is made up of parents, teachers, and staff committed to enriching our children’s educational environment. There is no “official membership”. Through fundraising, the PFC provides our teachers with the additional resources and tools they need in order to provide the highest quality educational experience to every student across every grade.

Q. How do I get involved with the PFC?
A. Start by attending the monthly meetings, regularly scheduled on the 2nd Friday of every month on Zoom. These meetings form the foundation of our community by providing an opportunity to learn about and discuss upcoming events, introduce new ideas and interact with our principal and teachers. Please check the Events Calendar to confirm the date, as they do change on occasion due to holidays. Whether you have a little time or a lot, whether you can help from behind a desk or on campus, whether you’re a mom, dad or community member…we have something for everyone. Contact us or just stop by the PFC Office – we look forward to hearing from you!
Q. What if I can’t attend the PFC meetings?
A. Meeting Minutes are posted on this website on the About page.
