Chaparral Elementary School

Parent Faculty Association

Welcome to Chaparral's PFA


Dear Families of Chaparral Elementary School,

 

On behalf of the PFA, we would like to welcome everyone back to school. We hope you all had a very happy summer!

 

Chaparral Elementary PFA, stands for Parent Faculty association, it is about men and women working together toward a common goal. That goal is creating a better school and a better educational experience for our children. We strive to create an atmosphere where teachers and administrators can do their best work—and so can our children. We are parents, guardians, uncles, aunts, grandparents, teachers and friends who care about children and education. We are your neighbors, and we share many of the same concerns you do. Our primary objective as PFA is to provide our schools with funds, programs, resources and services that will enrich and maximize the education of every child.  To meet this important objective, and afford services that are no longer covered by our school budgets, we must fundraise.  Though it may not be our favorite responsibility, it is a necessary one. 

Chaparral has three major fundraisers:

  • Show of Support (SOS) kicks off at the start of the new school year
  • Roadrunner Golf Classic and Auction in October.
  • Spell-a-Thon, kicking off in January.

These fundraisers help to support our field trips, assemblies, computer program, and much, much more. These three fundraisers help lessen the need for smaller fundraisers. Other fundraisers that occur throughout the year help benefit our 5th and 6th grade classes. Each class has the opportunity to attend an overnight camp, AstroCamp for the 5th graders and Science Camp for the 6th graders. These camps are only possible because of parent participation. There is so much more that can be done and we need your help. 

 

We invite you to join us to our first PFA meeting Monday, September 25th in the Music Room at 6:30 PM.  We look forward to meeting you! On behalf of the Chaparral PFA, we would once again like to extend warm welcome and best wishes for a successful school year!  Please contact us with questions or comments. 

 

Sincerely,

Mayda Madrid

Chaparral PFA President
