“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!!

Buy your CHAPTS parking spot now!

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.

Click here to buy your spot!

Every dollar collected will be spent by CHAPTS for the benefit of every Chaparral student, teacher, and staff member. Purchases and donations are tax-deductible.
