New to Chapman? Know someone who is?

We have had an incredibly hard time getting contact emails into our parent directory for families who are new to Chapman this year.

The password-protected parent directory is a service of the PTA that allows parents to access email, phone and classroom assignments children at Chapman. It is also the only way that the PTA/Foundation can easily send direct emails to families or for classrooms/grades to self-organize.

We feel it’s important for new families to be connected to our parent community, so if you are new to Chapman, please know that we are trying our best to add all new families who wish to be included. If you have not received any emails from Friends of Chapman this year, please make sure you are in our parent directory by sending whatever you’d like included (child(ren)’s name/teacher/parent email(s)/phone) to

If you know of a family who is new, please share this message.

Have an interest in improving our school culture? Still seeking two parent members to serve on Chapman’s site council

Here’s a brief description of what the site council is all about from Principal Van Der Wolf Please contact her if you are interested and can meet once a month with staff at 2:30 p.m.

What is Site Council?

Site Council is a team made of an equal number of parents and teachers, a classified representative (these are our EAs and secretaries), and the principal.

We look specifically at our school improvement plan and come up with ideas to help implement it.

Last year, the main component of our school improvement plan was creating a positive school climate for students and stronger communication with families. The Site Council pushed for the Chimney Flyer, our school newsletter, to come out once a month in a paper format as a way to improve communication. It also reviewed the social-emotional learning curriculum, Caring School Communities, and made a presentation to staff in support of Chapman adopting it for the year.

We meet right after school at 2:30 once a month.
