Mr. Scott Carroll joined us full-time on November 7. He has been a Ventura County resident for many years and has served as teacher, assistant principal, and principal for the Fillmore School District. He is very excited to return to a school setting after a short period in administration at the Santa Paula School District. Mr. Carroll has already visited Chaparral several times in the past weeks, visiting classrooms and meeting students and staff. We wish him a very warm welcome! Read Moorpark Acorn article of October 28 for more about Mr. Carroll.
A huge "Thank You" goes to Mrs. Anna Merriman who stepped in as interim principal while we conducted the search for a new principal. She cut short an out-of-state family visit this August to provide seamless leadership after Mrs. Burns' departure. Her experience and wonderful upbeat attitude were just what we needed to see us through.
