Chapman Turf Fundraiser

10 years ago, Hillside Soccer Club raised funds to install artificial turf at Chapman Elementary. Since then,  it has been the surface upon which our children learn, grow and play.

The surface has reached the end of its usable life, and must be replaced this summer.  Hillside Soccer Club has obtained construction permits from PPS, and must raise the remaining funds to complete the project.

Please join us in guaranteeing a durable, safe, all-weather play surface for the next 10 years of K-5 athletes!

Help us meet our goal, and re-open Chapman Elementary this fall with a new field!

Chapman Marathon and Fitness Series

Chapman PE teacher Mr. Studt is starting a Marathon and Fitness Series beginning Monday, April 26th until the end of the school year. Meet by the front of Chapman 15 minutes before hybrid start (7:45 AM or 12:15 PM) and run as many laps as you can (it’s the same course as Run For The Arts). If you can’t join for the running, there are other options to choose from–see below.

Volunteers are needed! Come help count laps, hand out/collect lap cards, and cheer the runners on. Sign up here: Volunteer Sign-up.

Read more below from Mr. Studt or HERE and reach out to Mr. Studt at rstudt@pps.net.


Marathon and Fitness Series

Hello All Swifts! 

This is an opportunity to complete as much fitness as possible at home or at Chapman Elementary School beginning April 26th and ending June 11th, the bulk of this being throughout the month of May. If you cannot join us for the running, no problem, there are two choices to choose from.

We will have an opportunity at Chapman for students ages Kindergarten to 5th grade to run or walk around a ⅓ mile track at Chapman (same as Run for the Arts), before both AM and PM cohorts. 

Session #1: Begins at 7:45 AM, Ends at 8:00 AM
Session#2: Begins at 12:00 PM, Ends at 12:15 PM

There will be volunteers available with runner cards and pens, so students can grab a card and get running/walking.

At the conclusion of the session, they will bring their cards back to the same table, and hand it to a volunteer, the card will be filed in the teachers tab, and kept safe until their next session. 

The students can join for one session a week, or four per week! 

Approximate Measurements:
Marathon = 26.2 miles
1 Chapman lap = ⅓ mile
79 laps = 26.2 miles – A FULL MARATHON
40 laps = 13.1 MILES – HALF MARATHON
19 laps = 10K – 6.2 MILES
9 laps = 5K – 3.1 MILES

We will all be safe and wear masks while walking/running.

AT-HOME OPTIONS

CDL students, or can’t make it to the run times? NO PROBLEM! Two options for students to participate in a challenge from home that will be recognized at Roundup in June!

Option 1: 60 Minute Plank Club 
(60 minutes of combined time of Planking by the end of the school) 

You will record how many minutes of planking you complete from April 26th to June 8th and report to Mr. Studt your minutes. We will recognize students that participate at the June 9th Roundup.

Option 2: 3,500 CLUB
(3,500 jumping jacks by the end of school)

You will record how many jumping jacks you complete from April 26th to June 8th and report your numbers to Mr. Studt. We will recognize students that participate at the June 9th Roundup.

OR THE GOLD STANDARD: DO BOTH CHALLENGES!

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

WE WILL NEED AS MANY VOLUNTEERS AS POSSIBLE for the run sessions at Chapman.

I will be there to set up and break down to begin, but will need volunteers to make this a fun time for all students and continue it throughout the week. 

Volunteer Jobs:
2-3 Volunteers – Counting Laps as the students come through.
3-4 Volunteers – On Course at each turn to direct students.
1-2 Volunteers – Bring out and distribute/Collect students cards and file them in class folders at the beginning and end of every day.  

(These can easily be parents that are dropping their kids at school)

Materials: 
Vests for volunteers, runner cards, cones, markers, accordion folder for AM – accordion folder for PM cohorts (each tab has teachers name)

Directions for setup:
1. Grab the basket with all the materials (inside the door at Chapman), as well as the table. 
2. Setup the  table, then walk the course with the arrow signs and cones. Place an arrow sign in the ground and large cone at every  corner. 
3. Have 1 volunteer stationed at every corner to direct kids. 
4. Have 1-2 volunteer(s) marking laps as students come through. 
5. At the end of the session, put student cards away in a specific teacher tab (accordion folder). Walk basket and table back inside. 

Please have anyone interested in volunteering email me or sign up here: Volunteer Sign-up Sheet. You can also just show up on Monday, WITH A MASK ready to volunteer. THANKS!
