Principal's Message

Hello Chaparral Families,


On behalf of our entire staff at Chaparral Elementary, I would like to welcome you to our 2020-2021 school year.  While this year will be starting out differently, we are excited to connect with you virtually as well as get to know all of our new Chaparral Sparkies. 

This year marks my third year as the proud Principal of Chaparral Elementary School.  I continue to look forward to the many relationships I have built with our community as well as make new ones.   We will continue the tradition of Coffee with the Principal each month and if more parents can connect virtually we may continue this new media form even after schools reopen.  More information will be forthcoming once the school year has begun. 

The district has worked hard to send out weekly information throughout the summer to keep families updated regarding Covid and our plans for the 20-21 school year.  As your Principal, I am committed to continuing that communication with weekly updates as well.  Much of our communication comes from your student(s) teachers, however, we will be utilizing school messenger more this year to send out school wide as well as grade level specific updates.  It is so important that we have a working email address on file for you.  As you begin to connect with your student(s) teachers, they will be checking in with you to ensure that your information is correct in Synergy.  At any time you may also access this information through ParentVue.  Each family will receive specific login directions and information if you have not accessed ParentVue in the past. 

The theme for our school year is “Friends: I’ll Be There For You.” Now more than ever it is important to be there for one another as we navigate this new way of attending school.  It is our school goal to be there for you to make this year as stress free as possible.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to our front office at 602-896-5300 or email me directly at  I look forward to a strong start to the school year and connecting with each of you in the coming weeks.  Please stay safe and we look forward to seeing you soon.


 Mrs. McDivitt
