  • Principal's Message

    What an amazing year this has been! And today was definitely a final day to remember! 5th grade promotion was an inspiring event with moving musical performances and touching speeches by students. We ended with an all school clap-out to cheer our 5th graders on to 6th grade. 4th grade had their end of year Pioneer Days celebration with over 40 parent volunteers helping out. Custodian extraordinaire Janice, Ms. Kuether, and myself made a debut behind the lunchline serving pizza in the cafeteria. So many memories!

     Thank you to the Chapman families and community for everything you did to help make the 2016-2017 year a phenomenal one. We have some important dates listed below for next year. The office will be open until June 28 from 8-3. If you haven't yet registered an incoming kindergartner or 1st grader, please do so immediately. I hope that you have a summer filled with fun times and memorable moments. I can't wait to hear about them in the fall!
