Annual Donor Drive 2023-24

Dear Chaparral Families,

We are so excited for the 2023-24 school year! Our annual Donor Drive is Chaparral’s single most important fundraiser of the year, bringing in more than 75% of our annual operating budget. With State and local budget cuts to school funding, our Donor Drive is necessary to fund the programs and resources our children need which set our school and district apart!

Historically, Donor Drive funds were primarily used to pay the salaries of our specialists, instructional aides, and campus supervisors, which make up a majority of our expenses. While we have some funding for specialists from LVUSD this year, we still need your support. Your PFC is dedicated to ensuring that your funds are used in the most prudent and effective way to enrich our students’ lives. 

We know that collaboration between our parents, staff, teachers and administration will result in campus-wide success. Our PFC typically pays for the following programs and more. Please help us fund:

  • Special assemblies on campus and virtual programs
  • Salaries and supplies for Chaparral’s physical education program
  • Library resources, including books for the library 
  • Teacher expense allotments to spend on classroom supplies and projects
  • Online resources, educational software, print publications (Freckle, Scholastic News, etc)
  • Salaries of campus supervisors to ensure the safety of children during non-class hours
  • Salaries of instructional assistants who assist teachers in the classroom and online
  • School site improvements and safety measures
  • IPads, laptops and desktop computers in every classroom
  • Field Trips
  • Events including but not limited to: Family Dance, 5th Grade Promotion, Family Funday, Staff Appreciation Week, Wellness Week

Our donor levels with corresponding benefits are listed below.   *Please note: The amounts are per student (for example, for a family with two students, Blue Level is $550 x 2 = $1100).  All donors, regardless of the amount donated, will receive a car magnet!
