Greetings Chapman Families,
Happy New Year! I hope that you were able to enjoy the holiday season and the change of pace over Winter Break. I know staff, including myself, have returned invigorated and ready to take on 2019.
Please remember to have your child at school before 8:00AM. We have many students walking in tardy everyday. The first few minutes of school are an important part of the day--teachers use this time to go over the daily schedule, to set goals for the day, and to check in with students. Tardiness not only causes your child to miss out on this crucial information, but also creates a disruption to the class. Please make sure your child is on time.
Nutrition Services New Account Balance Notification
Starting the week of January 14, 2019, Nutrition Services will be using School Messenger to notify families by phone and email about student meal account balances. Kitchen staff will continue to provide personal phone call reminders and/or paper letters home. If you have questions about student meal accounts or other information, please visit our webpage or call 503-916-3399.
Connect to Kindergarten
Our Connect to Kindergarten event will be held at Chapman on February 13th at 9:00 AM and 6:00 PM. If you have a child(ren) starting kindergarten in the fall of 2019 please come to our Connect to Kindergarten event for some great information, a tour of the school and an introduction to the kindergarten teachers. Please pass this information along to any of your friends and neighbors living in the Chapman attendance area.
Now is the time for 4th and 5th grade students interested in being in the Aladdin production to join chorus. Fourth and fifth grade teachers will be sending home a letter from Mr. Clark with all the details. Please be on the lookout and check those backpacks for this info. You can also contact Mr. Clark (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
After School Enrichment
We have several organizations that come to Chapman after school to offer fun learning opportunities for students, many of them starting up soon. Please visit the Friends of Chapman site for a full list of classes, times, and fees.
