Boys Basketball: The C Squad are the City Champions for Division 5 and the B Squad are the Third Place winners for Division 3.  Congratulations! Thank you to the coaches and the families who supported the team during the season and the Championship games.  

Attendance:  Last week Chaparral attendance was 92.9% and Amy Biehl was 96.5%.   (You will see me in a green shirt again this Friday) Our Goal is 97%.   We are highly encouraging hand washing to students in this season of stomach viruses and flu cases.  

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.

K 3 Plus:  Chaparral is able to provide a K-3 Plus Program again this summer.  K-3 Plus  is a 25 day summer program that gives students a head start on the 2017-’18 academic year. Children are eligible to apply if they will be entering Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, or 3rd grade in the fall of 2017. Dates for K 3 Plus are: June 16-30,  (July 3 and 4 off),  and July 5-24.  

Attendance to the K 3 Plus Program is critical for funding.
Call the Office and reserve a space.
