Dear Chaparral Families,
We are so excited for the 2021-22 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, Culmination, Ice Cream Social, Bingo
Night, Staff Appreciation Week and Wellness Week

email@example.com for a payment plan option or to pay by check. Please remember that many employers have matching funds programs and will match your donation with an equal donation, which doubles the size of your gift at no cost to you. Please ask your employer if they have such a program, and we will complete all necessary paperwork.
**Please write your student’s name(s) in the “short note” when you make your payment with the dollar amount to attribute to each student. This will help our bookeeping! Thanks in advance.
We appreciate your support in helping our children continue to prosper at Chaparral!
