PPS will discontinue the online flyer distribution system, Peachjar, on March 1. The notice is copied below. This change means that PPS will only allow the school office to distribute information about district-sponsored and governmental organization events.
Since Chapman does not have on-site aftercare, we rely on a mix of contracted, non-profit and for-profit programs for these services, as well as for general enrichment and sports opportunities.
Friends of Chapman maintains a Parent Resources Page here which offers a list of such programs and I’d like to try to make it as comprehensive and robust as possible to serve all our families. If you know of a program that should be included in this list, please let me know and I will post it. If you are looking for a program, let me know (or pose the question to our Facebook community directly).
If you are not on social media, you may wish to sign up for blog updates by entering your email in the box on the right hand side of this page. This will help you keep up to date with the parent community at Chapman. Thanks for helping to inform and serve our parent and student community! My contact info is below:

Dear PPS families:
As of March 1, 2018, Portland Public Schools will discontinue the use of Peachjar, the online flyer distribution system we have been using since January 2016. We will still allow the distribution of materials for district-sponsored and governmental organizations, but will no longer facilitate distribution of materials from other organizations.
Why are we doing this?
What information will you still receive from the district?
How can you see what’s happening in your school?
