I hope that everyone had a safe Thanksgiving break filled with time spent with your families, having fun, and relaxing. I’ve been delighting in hearing the myriad ways Chapman students celebrated the holiday and about their unique family traditions.
We are in the process of establishing a new Site Council and we invite parents, guardians, teachers, students, classified staff, and community members to participate. The site council works together to develop and implement the School Improvement Plan. This is the forum for boosting academics and achievement for all Chapman students. Site Council works closely with the principal to make real, ongoing change that increases opportunity for all students by using data to monitor progress and determine needs. If you are interested in being a member of the Site Council, please send a short bio (3-5 sentences) including why you are interested in Site Council to email@example.com by Monday, Dec 5th by 10:00 a.m. Elections will be held via a Google Form that week.
Please join me for the next Principal’s Coffee this Friday (12/2) after Round Up. We will meet in Room 6 and discuss the formation of the Site Council. There will also be opportunity for questions on other topics as well.
Pamela Van Der Wolf, Principal
