Week 3: Chaparral's Good News!

May 4-8

Chaparral's Weekly Updates

Hello Cougars,


Many of you continue to show you are adjusting to the "new normal" of Distance Learning. As you get closer and closer to the end of this school year, I encourage you to use these phrases when times feel challenging:

  • Stay positive
  • Stay focused
  • Stay healthy
  • Carpe Diem - (Latin for Seize the Day!)
So FINISH STRONG in all you do!


Also, remember to problem-solve your question(s) by using the following as a guide:

  1. Check Google Classroom for details
  2. Check the school's website for information at chaparralmiddle.org
  3. Ask a classmate for guidance
  4. Seek your parent's support
  5. Email your teacher, counselor or staff member for clarification

If you make a mistake, know that it's okay and it should serve as a valuable lesson. Mistakes should be treated as an opportunity for you to learn and grow from each time.


Students, be sure to review this entire newsletter to see these topics below:

  • Cougar Highlights - Showing off STAR Students & dates to return or pick up items
  • Counseling Corner - Our SSRAs offering ways for students to connect with them
  • Cougar PAWs - Recognizing the amazing work of your teachers; staff nominations
  • Email Notifications - Check your emails for notifications about your PE Lockers
