Spotlight Newsletter


  • Principal's Message

    Hello Chapman families, we are the guest principals for this Chapman Spotlight. Our names are Rina and Emily. We are 5th grade students from Mr.Hendrickson’s class. This is a very important article because there’s only 1 month of school left and a lot of things you should know about right now. First of all, there is a food drive going on. You can drop off canned food in any bag of your choice. But make sure you drop your food off as soon as possible in the main entrance of chapman. The drive ends at the end of the month. The canned food goes to a good cause. It goes to families around the neighborhood that can’t afford food. Speaking of food, want to hear a joke? Why shouldn’t you tell a secret at a farm? Because the potatoes have eyes, the corn has ears and the beans stalk.

    The Green Team of Chapman is concerned about the plastic silverware we use for hot lunch. All of the silverware goes to the landfill, which is not very sustainable or eco-friendly. So at Chapman we are doing a silverware drive where you can make a difference in the environment. Just make sure it’s ok with your parents if you bring in silverware. There are tons of boxes around the school where you can put some steel silverware. Just remember, anyone can make a difference.

    Who’s excited for the 31st of May? We know we are! That’s the date of the first performance of the Madagascar musical. Put it on your calendars now!

    Rina and Emily

  • Important budget message from the Superintendent

    Español | Tiếng Việt | 中文 | Русский | Soomaali

    Hello PPS families and staff,

    On April 4 I presented my proposed budget for the 2017-18 school year to our School Board. I want to make sure you know what our spending priorities are, and what they will mean for you and your PPS student or students.

    This is a budget of difficult choices. We made extra cuts to central administration to prioritize direct services for students, but we still must make some painful cuts to our schools. Although the cuts will affect each school differently, they will be noticeable. This proposed budget is the first step in a long process, and we will be seeking your input and engagement as we manage this difficult fiscal climate.
