  • Principal's Message

    After a couple of weeks of continual downpours, today was glorious. The camellia outside my window sprouted one flower today out of its plethora of buds. It was a clear reminder that spring is just around the corner! With spring, comes non-stop activity in schools. In Chapman, preparations for our spring musical are underway, incoming kindergarten parents have been visiting the Ramona to learn about the next step in their little ones' lives, and we are all eagerly anticipating the return of our student newspaper, the Chapman Swift Current.

    Chapman has a Twitter account! This will be a vehicle for you to see pictures of events and exciting activities that are happening here at school. Our handle is @ChapmanGoSwifts. We do realize that not everyone would like their child's photo on the school page and we will not post pictures of students if they are on our our Publicity Denial list. Please contact the school if you would like a copy of the form.

    The PTA is sponsoring coffee on Fridays in our new Community Room (Room 6)! They will start this next Friday. If you have a few minutes before or after Round Up, come on in!

    We need you! Vote daily and help raise money for Chapman!

    Let’s get some help raising money for our new playground! Together Counts – Vote for Chapman online every day until March 24. Together Counts is an organization that will give three schools $30,000 plus a new playground set, and three schools will win $5,000. Anyone in the community can enter on behalf of our school, by entering once/day on the Together Counts link above. Please click on the link and when you get to the empty form, enter our zip code, 97210, and Chapman Elementary school will pop up as a choice. Cast your vote, tell your friends and set a reminder to do so every day!

  • Nine of our schools earn EPA’s ENERGY STAR rating

    At a ceremony on February 10 at Wilson High School in SW Portland, nine PPS schools were recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for achieving ENERGY STAR certification. To receive this certification, a building must perform in the top 25% of similar facilities nationwide for energy efficiency, and meet strict energy efficiency performance levels set by the EPA. ENERGY STAR schools use an average of 35% less energy, and also release 35% less carbon dioxide.

  • Enrollment balancing for Peninsula, Chief Joseph and Ockley Green

    Soomaaliga Español Tiếng Việt
    The District-wide Boundary Review Advisory Committee (DBRAC) was formed in 2014 to help with enrollment balancing across Portland Public Schools.

On January 30, 2017, Interim Superintendent Bob McKean endorsed one of two DBRAC proposals.

    The proposal, which still requires the approval of the Board of Education, may be reviewed at,
