  Welcome to next year's 6th graders!  

On Tuesday, May 30, we welcomed our incoming 6th grade students on a special visit to Chaparral.  They toured the campus with their 5th grade classes and learned more about what to expect next year.  That same evening their parents were invited to attend their own version of the orientation/tour.

  Selecting Next Year's Electives Online  

Something new:  Chaparral students went online in their history classes earlier this month to make their elective choices for the 2017-18 school year.  Each grade level had several selections to choose from including the year-long music classes or the various exploratory options.  Parents may view the elective offerings by clicking the links below.  Students received a confirmation email to their school Gmail account with the choices they have selected.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact the main office at 805-378-6302.

 Check out our elective choices here:    6th Grade         7th & 8th Grade

  Visit the New CA School Dashboard  

California is field testing a new website designed to help communities across the state access important information about K-12 districts and schools. Called the California School Dashboard, the site features easy-to-read reports on multiple measures of school success, including CAASPP test scores, graduation rates, English Learner progress, and suspension rates. Click on the logo below to go to the CA School Dashboard Homepage.

To learn more about California's new accountability and continuous improvement system, visit the CDE Accountability Webpage.

Fall Picture Day
August 25, 2017

ALL students will be photographed for their Fall I.D. Pictures on Friday, August 25.  Students will receive a temporary I.D. to use until the photo I.D.s are issued several weeks into the school year. There is no charge for the I.D.s but parents may also choose to order from a variety of photo packages.  Payment for those pictures will be due on Picture Day.  A make-up picture day is scheduled for October 3 for those students who missed the first date.

Students are expected to carry their photo I.D. cards with them at all times while at school and at school-related events. Replacement I.D. cards may be purchased from the Chaparral office for $5.

Parents with specific questions for Cornerstone should call their Customer Service at (805) 529-1635.
