Chaparral Community Association News
Chaparral staff and students would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Chaparral Community Association and to the Chaparral School Parent Council for generously donating equal funds to purchase four complete basketball hoops for our gymnasium.
Last year, the Chaparral Community Association invited St. Sebastien and Chaparral School to come together in a spirit of building community. (Chaparral Community Association is responsible for the communities of Lake Chaparral, Chaparral Ridge and Chaparral Valley, and is managing the funds received from BFI, now called the Chaparral Enhancement Fund).
In the spring, Chaparral School, along with Chaparral School’s Parent Association drafted a proposal to Chaparral Community Association to utilize some of the Chaparral Enhancement funds to improve learning for Chaparral students. These hoops can be adjusted vertically (to meet the different heights needed for a K-6 school), and can be secured against the wall when they are not in use. Basketball, an all-season sport, teaches students about sportsmanship, pursing an active lifestyle, team-work and develops their gross motor skills. With four more hoops, students can be more involved in games, and can hone and develop their skill. An added benefit is that the nets are available to community groups who utilize the gym during non-school hours.
Thank you Chaparral School Parent’s Association and Chaparral Community Association for this amazing gift that we will enjoy for years to come! It is truly a “slam dunk!”
