Principal's
Message

  • Principal’s Message

    Dear Chapman Families, Hello, we are 5th grade guest principals. These are some ideas to keep your kid’s brain active and full of hot cocoa over the upcoming winter break. In our experience students can feel behind after a long exciting break, (which can be longer if we have a snow days). First of all, K through 5th grade students can work on reading and writing over the break. If you need a book with peppermint cocoa, we recommend the “The Land of Stories”. It’s humorous and exciting. Second, don’t worry about P.E., if we have snow everyone will go outside! Thank you for your attention. Hope you have a fun and chilly break! Clair and Daisy (from Ms. William’s class.

    As a reminder, school will resume on Tuesday, January 3, 2017 at 8:00 a.m. I hope that all of you are able to enjoy a peaceful and joyous winter break.

    Pamela Van Der Wolf, Principal
