Principal's Message

Dear Parents,

As the school year is rapidly coming to an end, I’ve enjoyed the students, activities and opportunities to get to know all of you. Chaparral is a very special place, and I appreciate your trust in all of us to provide the best educational experience we possibly can for your children at school. I have watched teachers, staff, parents and students work as a C.U.B.S. T.E.A.M. to ensure that all Chaparral students learn and succeed. We “never give up,” and we will continue to work as partners in a professional learning community in new and creative ways.


We celebrate our hardworking teachers and staff during Staff Appreciation Week,May2-6. Lori Sabo from “The Daily5,”wrote, “Many of us spend more hours at school than in our homes. It’s because the job of an educator is about much more than delivering content. Educators make a commitment to children when accepting the opportunity to become a teacher. They pour themselves into their students, courageously endeavoring to meet the vast needs of their students. Their efforts are tireless in order to connect, engage and capture the learners in their care.”Please join me in taking the time to let our staff know how much they are appreciated. Our classified staff is an integral part of our school community, so please do not forget their hard work and support as well.

Building a Unified Community at Chaparral takes each of us working together in collaborative T.E.A.M.s:


Together Everyone Achieves More. I am so grateful for the dedication, commitment and hard work shown by each and every one of our teachers and staff. They truly keep the needs of our students a priority.
