  • Assistant Principal's Message

    Greetings Chapman Families and Community!We hope you all had a restful and relaxing Spring Break. This is the perfect time of year to reflect on new beginnings. One exciting new beginning to announce is our official Chapman Facebook page. We will use this platform to share positive news and upcoming events. You can find it at: PPS Chapman Elementary SchoolApril is also poetry month, so be sure to say hi to Ms. Sullivan and Ms. Stevens or stop by the public library to check out poetry books. Our first upcoming events for April are the PTA meeting 4/3 and Run for the Arts 4/12. Run for the Arts is an amazing opportunity to be physically active and raise money for the arts at Chapman.

    As we move into the final months of the school year, please remember that attendance truly does matter. Some facts regarding chronic absenteeism from

    1. Research shows that missing 10 percent of the school, or about 18 days in most school districts, negatively affects a student’s academic performance. That’s just two days a month and that’s known as chronic absence
    2. Poor attendance can influence whether children read proficiently by the end of third grade or be held back
    3. By 6th grade, chronic absence becomes a leading indicator that a student will drop out of high school

     With that said, we look forward to seeing your student(s) at Chapman each day and being a part of their new beginnings.

  • Message on April 20 student walkouts

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Русский| Soomaali

    Dear PPS Community,

    Please know that in collaboration with school administrators, district leadership actively monitored the hundreds of mostly middle and high school students who walked out of our schools today as part of a national demonstration against violence in schools. I am pleased to say that, by all reports, this was a peaceful and respectful event with no serious incidents. While these actions were not district-sponsored activity, I would like to extend my sincere thanks to all who helped keep students safe, starting with the students themselves who remained organized, calm and intentional throughout. Others who helped include Portland police, PPS security, and other PPS staff. Thank you all.

  • A message from Deputy Superintendent Dr. Yvonne Curtis on 2018-19 staffing levels

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Русский| Soomaali

    Portland Public Schools is in the process of allocating teaching staff at schools throughout the district. As has been true for many years, we are working within a budget that has been chronically underfunded by the state, and we are doing our utmost to make the most of the resources we have. Understandably, parents, students and PPS staff want to know what will happen at their specific schools. While precise allocations won’t be known until enrollment figures become clear in the fall, we can share what we know at this point, and answer many of the questions we have heard to date.
