  • Principal's Message

    Greetings Chapman families,

    Today Chapman staff and students did something a bit unusual: we staged a fire drill from our auditorium. PPS has requested that at least one fire drill a year be held at a time when most students are not in their classroom, so today we held a short assembly in which we reviewed the practice of STOP, WALK, and TALK with a fun video. We also reviewed evacuation safety procedures and then ran the fire drill. I’m happy to report that we had our fastest time ever getting out of the building safely!

    It’s that time of year that we share the names of all of the members of our educational community who are moving on from Chapman. These staff are either retiring, making a career change, moving out of district, or were temporary employees who supported us this year with vacancies in our program. To all of them we wish you well in your next career moves and thank you for all you have done to support our students and community.

    • Barb Andrews, kindergarten teacher--moving to a new job

    • Sara Derrickson, school psychologist--temporary position

    • Susan Fuller, paraeducator--moving to a new job

    • Janel Hansen, school secretary--moving out of state

    • Kristina Machell, LRC teacher--moving out of state

    • JoLynn Maleah, 2nd grade teacher--retiring

    • Janice McDow, custodian--moving to a new job

    • Jennifer Park, principal's secretary--moving to a new job

    • Liesl Schaedig, 4th grade--temporary teacher

    • Nadine Trinchero, 4th grade teacher--moving to a new job

    • Anne Williams, 5th grade teacher--retiring

    In addition to the above, it is with bittersweetness that I announce that Britt Kuether has accepted an assistant principal position at Bridlemile Elementary School. While this is a wonderful opportunity for her, we will miss her!

    I am excited to share that the secretary position supporting our kindergarten program at the Ramona has been reinstated! Thank you to all who have advocated in numerous ways to bring this position back.

    Pamela Van Der Wolf
