Navajo Elementary School Fire – How To Help

Dear Chaparral Families,

As you may have heard, Navajo Elementary School suffered a devastating fire on Tuesday, August 22. The fire displaced 400 students and their teachers, and they currently do not have access to the school or the materials contained inside. Educators need to resupply classrooms and students need the most basic of school supplies. We are asking our generous Chaparral community to help our neighbors in their time of need.

You may bring any donations to the Chaparral High School front office, and we can take care of getting the supplies to the appropriate location.

The attached lists are intended to give you ideas of the types of supplies Navajo typically requests from students and parents.
