“Summer is Coming” Teacher and Staff Luncheon

Sign Up Here to Help

It’s hard to believe the end of the school year is coming soon.  We can’t thank you enough for all of your help so far this year with treating our teachers and staff to so many yummy lunches.  Our last Chili and Chocolate lunch was a HUGE hit! Thank you all to helped cook, clean and set up!

We have our final luncheon of the year coming up Wednesday, May 15th.  We plan to hold it in the cafeteria, similar to the holiday luncheon.  With summer approaching, we thought “BBQ Picnic” would be a fun theme.  We will have barbeque meats provided, but could use many side dishes, salads, drinks and desserts with your help.  Please sign up and spread the word if you can.  Thank you again for all of your help this year!  The teachers have been so appreciative!!

The annual CHAPTS parking spot sale has begun! EIGHT spots are offered for sale at the price of $4500 each (last year’s sale price). These spots will be assigned in the large student parking lot off 70th Street.

If your student will be a sophomore or junior next year and will drive to school, this is a great option for a reserved parking spot on campus. Rising seniors will be able to purchase a parking permit for the 2019-2020 school lot at the bookstore in May.

Save the Date: Presentation on Vaping and E-Cigarettes March 6 at 1:30pm


Chaparral would like to extend an invitation to parents to join our teachers and staff for a presentation from the AZ Attorney General’s Office on the dangers associated with vaping on March 6, which is an early release day.

The AGO e-cigarette and vaping presentation is designed primarily for youth from 12-17 to provide an overview of e-cigarette products, how they have developed, where they fall in laws regarding tobacco products, and the questions that have law enforcement and public health officials concerned about their impact on teens.  We will discuss the impact of nicotine on developing brains, the uncertainty around chemicals used as flavoring, the reality of the extremely high nicotine content that state lab testing has found in e-cigarette products confiscated from youth, and the potential for devices to explode.  One of the most effective prevention education strategies for traditional tobacco is to provide youth with information about how the tobacco industry historically targeted youth in its advertising and lied to the public about the addictive and deadly nature of its products.  In this presentation we discuss e-cigarette marketing practices such as cartoon mascots, video game themed liquids, and candy flavors.  We also provide information on the signs and symptoms of nicotine poisoning and addiction and discuss the potential criminal penalties for minors who are caught using or possessing tobacco products.  

Who: Cocopah, Copper Ridge, Chaparral staff, teachers and parents

What: Vaping Presentation by Erika Mansur / Tobacco Enforcement Unit Attorney at Arizona Attorney General’s Office

When: 03/06/2019, 1:30pm

Where: Chaparral Auditorium
