If you’ve been at Chapman for awhile, you’ll remember when classroom lists were posted at the ice cream social, making it the first  “must attend” event of the school year.
That tradition has ended (you’ll receive classroom assignments via snail mail this week), but this year’s event includes important changes that make it just as essential and even more fun!

In addition to meeting your child(ren)’s classroom teacher, you’ll be able to:

  • Pick up back-to-school paperwork packets and bus tags
  • Join the PTA
  • Learn about and sign up for volunteer opportunities
  • Meet with representatives from after care and enrichment programs
  • Shop our brand-new lineup of Chapman spirit wear and gear

And of course, enjoy a FREE sweet treat from our neighborhood friend, Tilly the Ice Cream Truck! 

All parents, students, staff and friends are invited to stay after the social and meet on the viewing hill for an early-season Swift Watch. (Or just socialize if the Swifts are late in arriving!) Bring your own picnic or purchase pizza/water.


DATE, TIME AND LOCATION: Thursday, August 23 at Chapman’s main campus. The social is from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. The picnic is from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

PARKING: Our friends at Montgomery Park (2701 NW Vaughn St) are making their lot available for parking. Biking/walking/public transport is highly encouraged!

FOOD: Bring your own picnic or purchase pizza/water. If you’d like to pre-order a whole pizza, contact Kelly Farrell @ kelly.r.farrell@gmail.com by Noon on Thursday, Aug. 23. 

BRING: Picnic blanket, dinner, and, if you’re so inclined, payment for PTA dues, pizza and Chapman gear. Cash, credit and checks accepted.

Can’t make the social? No worries! Packets will be ready for you when school starts.
