Both incoming freshman and current Chaparral students have been preparing for the next school year. On January 19th, Chaparral counselors met with current Freshman, Sophomores and Juniors and talked to them about the next school year and their class selection for the next year. They also refreshed students on college and high school graduation requirements, so students can prepare themselves for classes they will have to take to get to college. “I think the meetings with counselors helped me because I was able to learn about new classes I can take next year, and I was able to think about classes I want to take in later years.” Said current freshman Josh Linero. Counselors were also available during lunch that day and talked to students one on one. Incoming Freshmen received their course selection guide with the guide of classes for the 2017-2018 school year on January 19th. On January 25th Chaparral will host incoming freshman during the Chaparral Showcase and students will learn about what their freshman year will be like, meet teachers and learn more about classes available to them. All class selection forms are due on the 27th of January and students will choose their classes in school for online verification on the 29th. The online course selection on Infinite Campus will also close at 3 P.M. on the 29th. This is the last day Chaparral Students will receive their 2017-2018 schedules on May 16th, and incoming Freshman will receive their schedules sometime in May.
