Principal's Message

May/June Update

​"My heart leaps up when I behold a rainbow in the sky." - William Wordsworth
Rainbows are one of nature’s most beautiful phenomena. Scientifically speaking, they are caused by the refraction of the sun’s rays through millions of drops of rain – but to the human eye, these majestic, colourful bridges that join heaven and earth stir within us wonder and reflection. The photo above was taken a few weeks ago by Cayleigh (gr.1) and her mom as they made their way to Chaparral School. Cayleigh was the first to notice that the colourful arc formed a halo over our school, and she insisted her mom capture the moment in a photograph and sent it to me. In the message accompanying the picture, Cayleigh’s mom explained that Cayleigh interpreted this morning’s rainbow as a sign of good luck – perhaps intended for the day, but most certainly intended for our school. I appreciate Cayleigh’s observation, and I am deeply touched by her interpretation! Thank you Cayleigh! Cayleigh’s “rainbow wish” has reminded me how lucky I feel to be principal at Chaparral School. Our school is blessed with energetic and committed teachers and support staff, warm and enthusiastic students, and caring and involved parents. Behind this strong learning community is a dedicated system that puts students first, that focuses on strong teaching and leadership, and continually strives for improvement. Yet, in orderto have a rainbow, we must at times deal with some rain. Over the past few months, as the staff and I have applied our most thoughtful efforts to plan and organize for the upcoming school year we have occasionally encountered what for some could​ be considered metaphorical “rain”. New and unforeseen dynamics have challenged us, but have also given us an opportunity to rethink plans and craft some new and creative ideas.​ We are very excited to share some of our plans for 2017-18 in this newsletter. As you read, please be reminded that your questions and/or need for clarification are always welcome. Once you get past the organizational information, please enjoy all the “rainbow” stories, articles and pictures submitted by teachers and students. Chris Buhler, Principal
