about School Tours
Each January it is a pleasure for me to conduct school tours for parents who are considering registering at Chaparral for the following year. It is great to give our guests the opportunity to see classrooms and our excellent educational programs. Most have lots of questions and many positive comments. It is my time to brag, celebrate and show off our incredible school. Our school tours are generally held at 8:30am on Fridays. Our next School Tour has been cancelled.
Please remember to spread the word to your neighbors and friends if they have children that are the age to register for Kindergarten next year. We ask that anyone interested in attending a school tour contact the school office to sign up for the tour. (818-591-2428)

Strategies were taught that helped parents understand the new standards as well as ways to support their student to increase their learning.
