Chapman Update

Good Morning Chapman Families!

Are you looking for something to do today with your family in honor of MLK Day? It is a "feels like -20 this morning, so please be careful if you venture out!

Visit a museum: Most museums (many of which are usually closed on Mondays), will be open for the MLK Jr. holiday, including the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Detroit Historical Museum, and the Wright Museum. Just outside the city, the Henry Ford Museum has free admission and a full day of activities.


* If your child is registered at Champions, they have a snow day option! Please contact them for more information.

* Starting Monday 1/28/19, Champions will be starting a Sewing Club! ANY student can sign up for this club. Contact Champions for more information.

Call Champions at (734) 379-6383 for more information.

PTO VALENTINES PARTY- Friday 2/1/19 (5:30-7:30)

To put on these fabulous events for our students, it takes many volunteers! Please think about joining us and helping us for this great event. Sign up link below

January food menu is attached at the bottom of the newsletter!

* Please make sure that all students have coats (Boots and Snow pants too!) when they come to school! We are in that transition of cold weather and I would hate to have students miss a needed recess because they are not dressed appropriately. If your child is in need of a coat, please contact me and I will make sure that they have one. It is also a good idea to pack extra socks and an extra set of clothes in backpacks in case students get wet playing in the snow.

Please be patient and pull as far forward as possible in the carpool line. BOTH doors are open for students to enter the building. Please remember for your safety and the safety of the students to please only get out on the curb side of the car. If you have to get out of the car for any reason please park in the parking lot to do so. Please stay in line in carpool and do not cut around. This is for the safety of the families that are crossing the carpool lane. I appreciate all the great work and how smoothly the morning drop off procedures are going! Well done!

* Watchdogs are up and running! If you would like to volunteer to be a Watchdog, please go to this link to sign up! Thank you in advance to all of our Watchdogs!

* It is that time a year where we have to be very careful about sending our students to school when they are not feeling well. Remember that students should be fever free for at least 24 hours before returning to school. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us and we can help in making a decision.

* Please like our Facebook page Chapman Elementary (SEARCH FOR @GSDChapman on Facebook or follow this link ) and follow us on Twitter @guizzettiland #GSDChapman. This is a great way to stay informed of school happenings throughout the year.

Count On Me,
