Thank you to all who came to our main campus Back to School event--it was quite a success! Students were clearly proud to show off their classrooms and the school to their families, and the hallways were buzzing with everyone meeting our new staff and checking out our specials classes. If you haven't had a chance, please stop by and see our student portrait mural on display in the lobby. It's a beautiful representation of every Chapman student, including our kinders.
Kindergarten Back-To-School is tomorrow, Tuesday, September 19, at 6:30 p.m. at our Ramona campus. Childcare (for Chapman kindergarten students only) will be provided. Come meet your student's teachers and learn about the kindergarten program.
The weather has certainly turned. We strive to have outdoor recess at every opportunity, even when it's raining. While we will have indoor recess if there is an absolute downpour, most rainy days we will be outside. Please make sure to send your student in climate appropriate clothing.
We have our first late opening on Wednesday. School will start 2 hours late (10:00 for the main campus, 10:15 for our Ramona site). This is an opportunity for our staff to engage in valuable professional development around racial equity and education. PPS sent out dates on August 22 of our late openings for the year. We will also communicate them in our Chimney Flyer and on our website.
