Welcome to Chaparral Elementary



We love our Firebirds!

Good afternoon families,

  Each of you should have a conference with your child's teacher this week.  Please take this opportunity to learn about your child's strengths and to create a plan to support their opportunities for improvement. 
  Setting goals is such an important skill in life!  Help your child set goals for the 2nd quarter.  How will you know when your child has met their goals?  Can you set up a small treat/reward?  It can be so simple!  One suggestion I have is if your child completes all assignments during the week, then they get to pick a movie for family moving night.  Keep it simple and fun!  
Be well,
Mrs. Maestas

Updates for this week:

  • Report cards are scheduled to be emailed to families on 10/19 by the district.  Please check your SPAM/junk folder.  If you do not receive your child's report card by the 20th, you can email studentdataoffice@sfps.k12.nm.us.
  • 10/31:  We will have a book distribution with a special treat for our Firebirds from 10-12.  This will be a drive thru distribution.  Please stay in your vehicle, wear a mask and costumes would be fun!
  • Attendance matters!  Please help your child attend school every day, on time and for the full day!  If your child must be absent, please call Miss Peggy at 467-1400.
  • Nominate one of our AMAZING teachers/EAs for SFPS teacher/EA of the month! Chaparral teachers rock
  • Save the date!  Cooking with Kids Family night 11/4 @ 5:30
  • We still have yearbooks from last year!  Email Miss Peggy if you would like to purchase one for $20.
  • 21st Century is still accepting students to participate in tutoring and enrichment activities.  21st century registration
