Welcome back every one to a new school year! I am excited to join Chaparral this year and look forward to meeting you. I hope you have had time to enjoy your family and friends this summer. I had a wonderful summer visiting my parents in Arizona, playing at the beach with my grandkids, who are three and two years old, and spending time with Paul, my husband. I must say I learn something every time my grandkids visit, like standing six feet away from their swinging golf club; there are not any new tricks for potty training from when my child learned (wash the walls); and never give the shower wand to your grandson!
We have made some changes this year to reflect the survey that you responded to last spring. One change will be that the PTA and Foundation have joined together to do a direct ask fundraiser this year and has limited the number of additional fundraisers to the Spell-A-Thon, Jog-A-Thon, Book Fair, and Autumn Auction. There will not be a product fundraiser this year outside of the book fair. Please be sure to give to the direct ask fundraiser as both organizations will depend on these funds to provide programs, activities, and technology this year. Oh yes, another great change is that every teacher will begin using an iPad in their classroom this year thanks to your generous donations through the Foundation. Our goal is to infuse technology into the classroom to facilitate personalized learning. The survey’s next two items of priority were Physical Education and music. With your continued support of the PTA, these programs will also be in place this year for our children.
I look forward to getting to know you this year!
