Thanks to our friends at SELCO Community Credit Union for their recent sponsorship of our community dinner!

Did you know that SELCO was started in 1936 when local teachers and school employees pooled their funds together to help each other through tough times? That’s why they continue to support schools like ours through community grants.

Right now, SELCO is offering our families, staff, friends and neighbors $100 for opening a new checking account. Tell them Chapman sent you and our school receives an additional $100! Truly a win-win.

All the details are available here or stop by a branch and inquire with a banker. They offer savings accounts just for kids too!

PTA Coffees sponsored by Groundwork!


This year’s main campus PTA coffees are made possible again this year by our generous friends at Groundwork. The first one is coming up this Friday, 9/14.

Pop by Room 6 for a freshly-brewed cup or thermos refill just before or after Round Up, twice a month – a nice way to connect and catch up with your fellow parents before heading off to work or errands!
