It is hard for me to believe this summer is quickly coming to an end, and I am already writing my fourth welcome back message for our Chaparral family. It is time again to welcome students, parents and staff to the beginning of a new school year. In June, many of us feel tired and ready for a vacation, but when the start of school rolls around, the excitement begins to build. This excitement is contagious, and already it is easy to feel and see that everyone at Chaparral is looking forward to a great 2016-2017 school year. As we begin this year and welcome new personnel, we say goodbye with wishes for a wonderful new beginning to others. We wish the best to Mrs. Judy Wilson, Mrs. Renee Savioe, Mrs. Robbie Jacobs, and Mrs. Heidi Rivas.
