PBIS : (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports)  We are creating an all-school system to support and encourage positive behaviors throughout the school.  This involves training of the staff, planning lessons for common areas of the school  (playground, cafeteria, etc.) and input from parents. If you would like to assist, please contact Mrs. Korce. Our goal is to create a supportive climate for all members of the Chaparral Community by positively communicating behavior expectations.

Please feel free to call with any questions or concerns,
