Donations

We LOVE books!

Many times we get asked if we take slightly used books. The answer is, “YES.” If you would like to donate books to Chaparral School, please drop them off to Chaparral School Main Office, Attention: Lisa Reynollds. We will ensure that they continue to be loved! We will distribute them to classrooms, reading corners, book nooks, the Learning Commons and anywhere else we can get them in kids hands! If we cannot use them, we will pay it forward. Thank you so much for thinking of us. 

Other items we gratefully accept are: 

  • Pants (all sizes, girls and boys) 
  • Puzzles, games, colouring pencils, crayons, scissors, glue (hot, sticks, or white)
  • Lego or other building toys for inside recess days

Ear Buds

Donate unused iPhone ear bud / microphone sets for students to use in the Learning Commons.
