Dear Chaparral Families,
Thank you for six wonderful years as Principal at Chaparral School. As I move ahead to my new role, I carry with me cherished memories and much gratitude for all that I have learned and experienced working with you for the betterment of students.
Along with welcoming Anica Robinson as the new Principal at Chaparral, you will note other changes to the teaching team. Andrea Buist and Sarah McCune will be leaving Chaparral and joining the staff at Bayside School. Janice Grover and Corinne Swan will join the staff at Lakeshore School. Both schools are new sites in Area 5, scheduled to open in September 2022. Lindsey Pehkonen will be joining the staff at Pineridge School, where she will serve as a Literacy Learning Leader. Best thoughts are extended to these teachers as they pursue their work in new locations.
Joining the Grade 2 team at Chaparral will be Darryl Fidler. Darryl comes from Douglasdale School where he developed an excellent reputation for his work with Grade 2 students . Jennifer Lo will join the Grade 6 team. Jennifer comes from Monterey Park School. BreeAnne Robertson, coming most recently from Andrew Sibbald School, will teach music at Chaparral.
As is most common in schools, organizing for instruction continues to be a work in progress. Please stay tuned for further updates that will come to you from Principal Robinson.
With gratitude and peace,
