4:30 – 6:00 PM | Ice Cream Social
6:00 – Dusk | Swift Family Picnic
The annual Ice Cream Social is your opportunity to meet your child(ren)’s classroom teacher before the first day of school. Note: Class assignments for grades 1 – 5 will be sent in the mail beforehand. Kinders will receive class assignments after but will have the opportunity to meet the kindergarten teachers.
In addition, you will also be able to:
- Pick up back-to-school paperwork packets
- Join the PTA
- Learn about and sign up for volunteer opportunities
- Meet with representatives from after care and enrichment programs
- Shop for Chapman gear
- And of course, enjoy a FREE sweet treat from our friends at the Ice Cream Express!
All parents, students, staff and friends are invited to stay after the social for the Swift Family Picnic. 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 and water.
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 pizza will be available for purchase after the social. Pizza slices $4, pizza + water $5, whole pizza for $32, while quantities last. If you want to pre-order a whole pizza, email Sara Hoeber by 1:30 PM that day.
BRING: Picnic blanket, dinner, and, if you’re so inclined, payment for PTA dues, pizza and Chapman gear. Cash, credit and checks accepted.
VOLUNTEER: If you want to get involved with the Ice Cream Social, either as a volunteer or representative for your organization/program, contact Molly Porter and Helen Shum.
Can’t make the social? No worries! Packets will be ready for you when school starts.
Students, teachers, families – mark your calendars now! The Swift Family Run will be held on Saturday, September 14, 2019 at Wallace Park.
