Family night at La Farge Library

Firebird Family

Chaparral Elementary recently had the great opportunity to host its second annual literacy event at La Farge Branch Library.

I want to extend my gratitude to Lydia at the library for being so accommodating and welcoming to our Firebird families. In addition to the La Farge Library, the Georgia O-Keeffe Museum, the New Mexico Museum of Art, and the Randall Davey Audubon Center and Sanctuary provided hands-on and take-home activities for students and their families. 

This event was a true symbol of community. The school had over 200 participants. Families enjoyed reading together, crafting together and topped off the night with pizza and door prizes. 

Chaparral is a school where everyone knows your name and where we tell our kids that we love them and care about them every day.
