In order for the Chaparral Association of Parents and Educators for Students (CAPES) to support the cost of Chaparral programs such as Art, Music, PE, Innovation Lab, Academic Support, and Garden (and many more), we fundraise throughout the year. The first CAPES fundraiser is the “Green Envelope Week” Direct Donation Campaign. Next week, your child will come home with a Green Envelope and we will be asking you to charitably fill the envelope with a donation to CAPES. Throughout the week, we will highlight some of the programs that CAPES and your donations sponsor through dress-up Spirit Days:
Monday, September 16th: Express Yourself! Wear crazy socks or put flowers in your hair because CAPES sponsors the Art program, Music program, and Garden!
Wednesday, September 18th: Sports Day! Wear your favorite sports jersey or gear because CAPES sponsors the P.E. program and Fitness Club!
Friday, September 20th: Super Hawk Day! Wear your CHES spirit wear/character counts shirt and a superhero cape because CAPES volunteers are superheroes who sponsor Academic support, technology, Innovation Lab, and more!
In order to cover the annual cost of $125,000 that CAPES gives to Chaparral, our goal is to raise $150 per student. Please note that CAPES fundraising efforts are focused on three main fundraisers: Green Envelope Week (Direct Donation Campaign), APEX Fun Run (Pledge-based Jog-a-thon) and Auction (Parent Evening Event). We ask that each Chaparral family consider contributing $150 per child through any of these fundraisers in order to support Chaparral programs such as music, art, garden, P.E. and Innovation Lab. Therefore, if you are able to give $150 per child during Green Envelope Week in September, there is no obligation to fundraise for the Jog-a-thon in March or the Auction in April/May. Similarly, you may choose to wait until the Jog-a-thon or Auction to fulfill the suggested donation request to CAPES instead of donating as part of the Green Envelope Week direct donation campaign. You may also make the commitment to split your financial contribution over more than one fundraising opportunity (ex. $50 direct, $50 APEX, $50 Auction.) Finally, the only donation too small is no donation at all. Thank you for your continued support and consideration.
