CHAPTS, Chaparral’s Parent-Teacher organization, is a small not-for-profit organization operated by parent volunteers and funded by generous donations from Chaparral community. We are not managed by the Chaparral administration or the Scottsdale Unified School District, but we work closely with School and District staff to ensure that parents are engaged with what's happening on campus and to fund special programs or supplies that are otherwise outside the school’s budget.
CHAPTS raises funds through our annual membership drive which takes place at the beginning of the school year, our spring CHAPTown love event, and through passive fundraising and business sponsorships.
CHAPTS has many volunteer opportunities, which have included helping out at campus events, greeting reps at the college & career center, teacher/staff hospitality events, and Project Graduation, an all night, safe, drug free, alcohol free graduation party for seniors.
Tax-Deductible Contributions to CHAPTS support:
- TEACHERS: training, and classroom & learning enrichment wish list items, staff appreciation gifts & luncheons, new furniture in J600, and Rocket, Chaparral's beloved golden retriever (support canine)
- STUDENTS: Project Graduation, $1,000 Firebird Scholarship, courtyard shade structure, building improvements, contribution toward a new gym sound system, classroom & academic enhancements
