  • Welcome to a glorious September! What a joyous start to the school year this has been. I'm thrilled to be a part of the Chapman community and I'm looking forward to an exciting and adventurous year with your children. While this is proving to be a year of change (a new principal, a few new staff members, new concrete out front, new classrooms at the Ramona for our kindergarten students), what hasn't changed are Chapman's amazing teachers and our welcoming, supportive community.

    Thank you to our Community Care Day volunteers. Although we were small in number, we were mighty in our deeds! We helped teachers with some last minute moving of boxes, cleaned out the gym, and painted fresh stripes on our four-square courts. 

    One change to our schedule: rather than have a short 30 minute TAG presentation at Back to School Night, we are rescheduling our TAG Information Session for the evening of Thursday, October 6th and we will devote a full 90 minutes to sharing information and leading discussion around our plans to support gifted students at Chapman.

    With the beginning of the year comes some inevitable confusion. Please make sure that your child knows his or her after school plans. Also, if you have to make a last minute change in plans, please call the office before 1:30 pm; teachers often do not have time to read email during the school day. If your child goes to Friendly House, or another after care, please remember to alert them of any changes as well.
