Students, teachers, families – mark your calendars now! The Swift Family Run will be held on Saturday, September 14, 2019 at Wallace Park. Get out and stay moving over the summer so that you’ll be ready to run with your fellow Chapman community at this super fun (and free!) school event. Visit the Swift Family Run webpage at https://friendsofchapman.org/2019-swift-family-run for information. Stay tuned for more updates and details!
Thanks to our 7th grade alums who will be serving dinner from 6:15-7:30, joining our 6th grade alumni who are serving the early shift! We could still use help at the cookie station and for clean up. VOLUNTEER SIGN UP HERE.
All K-5 students and chorus members will have a chance to shine on stage this year AND our friends at SELCO Community Credit Union have graciously offered to pick up the tab for dinner! That means we are not collecting any payment for dinner, but you will still need reserve a time slot for you and your family members if you’d like lasagna.
Performance times as follows:
5:45 p.m. Kindergarten
5:50 p.m. First Grade
5:55 p.m. Second Grade
6:30 p.m. Third Grade
6:40 p.m. Fourth Grade
7:15 p.m. Chorus
The event will be very informal. Students in attendance will be invited to the stage to perform.
The Children’s Book Harvest is an annual community-wide book drive that takes place each fall to help The Children’s Book Bank gather and provide books to thousands of children in our community who might not otherwise have books of their own at home.
Throughout the year, books gathered during the Children’s Book Harvest are cleaned, restored, and carefully curated and distributed to local area families.
Chapman will be a collection point for the drive from October 30-November 9. Drop off your new or gently used books in the designated bins inside the front entrance of the school. For more information about the Children’s Book Bank or to make a cash donation, go to their website.
Many thanks to parent volunteer Yuliya Lacey for coordinating our donations to the book bank this year!
Reservations are now open for our 2nd annual community dinner! Book now to guarantee your preferred time!

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 @ firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
Chat with representatives from the following organizations at the ice cream social on Thursday. We’ll also have materials from 22 Wildwood (Scouting) and One-on-One Basketball to share. Are you a provider or organization looking for a tabling opportunity? Send an email to email@example.com
