Principal's Message

September 2014

Dear Chaparral Parents,

Welcome again to the 2014-2015 school year! Whether you have just joined our school family or you are a veteran parent of a school-aged child, the start of a new school year is always a time filled with excitement. Our focus is to provide each child with new challenges that will result in a rewarding school experience. Our commitment at Chaparral Elementary School is to provide a safe, positive, intellectual learning environment that will empower students to become creative problem solvers, critical thinkers, and inspired learners prepared for middle school, high school, college, and life in the 21st focus on children and their success.

I continue to be inspired by the dedicated staff and families in this community and look forward to getting to know all of our new team members. Chaparral is a school where students are supported and encouraged to grow academically, socially and emotionally. I am fortunate to be a part of this high-quality learning community, and I speak on behalf of the entire staff when I say we are excited to have each of you as part of our school community. It takes all of us to help each and every child reach his or her potential, and we look forward to sharing in your child’s learning experiences.

We want your child to be happy and successful at Chaparral, and as part of a unified community we each play a key role. That role is to continually show interest in and support your child. A child who knows his or her family is interested in and supports school programs and staff will almost always enjoy greater success and have fewer problems in school. Start this year off right by building a strong relationship with Chaparral and your child’s teacher. Here’s how:
  • Introduce yourself. Make a point of introducing yourself to your child’s teacher during this first full month of school. Communicate with your child’s teacher and with staff members to establish a successful home/school connection. Chaparral’s teachers have classroom websites with their contact information, homework assignments, and useful resources.
  • Volunteer. Have a few spare hours? Jump in and become a part of our PFC. Help plan family events, support fundraising efforts, or volunteer in your child’s classroom, in our library, or with our Art Specialist. The extra help is sure to be appreciated.
  • Stay informed. Read every note, handout, or newsletter that comes your way. Come to our PFC Meetings and Coffee with the Principal to ask questions and understand the work being done at Chaparral. If something does not make sense, please inquire about it.
  • Attend events. We plan many family and community events at Chaparral such as our Fall Festival, International Walk to School Day, Restaurant Nights, Donuts for Dads, Book Fair, and our spring Variety Show. The memories made will last a lifetime.
  • Ask your student specific questions about his or her time at school. For example, “What was the most interesting thing you did in math or reading today?” or “What are you learning about in social studies or science?”

I am excited for the opportunity to work with you and your student to provide a productive and safe learning environment that supports student success. Once again, welcome to Chaparral Elementary School!

I am honored to serve as your principal. Go, CUBS!
