Principal's Message

SWIFT (Self-confident, Willing to participate, Independent, Flexible, Thinkers)


July 21, 2016

Dear Cheetah Families,

It seems that school just ended, but I want to extend both new and returning families a sincere, “Welcome to Chaparral Hills Elementary School’s 2016-17 school year,” a place kids learn to be SWIFT (Self-confident, Willing to participate, Independent, Flexible, Thinkers).

Our first day of instruction is August 10th and instructions begins promptly at 8 A.M. Therefore, please note the calendar below, plan your remaining summer break and be ready to return revitalized.

This year we have planned many exciting lessons and activities for students. They will be engaged with excitement all year long. One great announcement, “We are now FULL DAY kindergarten!” No longer is kindergarten AM or PM. We are all day. Our 2015-16 CAASPP Assessment (Smarter Balanced) data will be released mid-August and I am certain our kids performed well. Our challenge this year is to continue to raise the level of academic and social achievement for all students and we are determined to make sure our students are in an “enriched academic and social environment that provides global experiences.” We must continue to work collaboratively so that ALL KIDS become productive citizens.

I am confident that with your continued support and involvement in the school’s instructional and social support programs, Chaparral Hills will achieve its goal of academic and social excellence.   

Mark your calendars with the following dates:

July 25th            Office opens from 8 A.M.- 3 P.M.

July 28th            Professional training for all staff (office open 1 – 3 P.M.)

July 29th            Professional development for teachers, instructional aides & noon aides

Aug. 5th            Class rosters posted on office windows

Aug. 10th           1st Day of Instruction (promptly at 8 A.M.)

Please accept the open invitation to meet with me throughout the year to discuss your concerns.  I welcome all of your comments, ideas, and suggestions for making our school the best worldwide.

Should you have any questions, please contact me at (951) 571-4730. Remember, instruction begins August 10th promptly at 8 A.M.
