Principal’s Message

Dear Parents,

Welcome to Dr. William A. Chapman ES, Home of the Eagles!   The 2021-22 school year is finally here.  Rather than focusing on the challenges of last year, I propose that we use them as building blocks.  We have a perfect opportunity to write our own #DWAC Story, starting with our 2021-22 School Theme, “We Belong Together”.

We have been working hard all summer to plan for a safe opening of school and to implement best practices to mitigate the risks associated with Covid-19. What we have learned and what we carry forward is that our students, families, faculty, and staff can do hard things.  Our primary goal is and will continue to be the social and emotional well-being of all students. 

The partnership between school and home will be important as we look to support children and families. The physical and social-emotional safety of our students, families, and staff will remain as the highest priority. I encourage you to become an active member of our school through the Parent Teacher Organization and/or volunteering.  PTO dues are $15 per family, which will also include 1 Free Spirit Shirt.  These dues can be paid from August 23, 2021, to October 1, 2021. Our goal is to get 100% participation.  Together, we can foster positive relationships in order for our children to maximize their true potential.

Please read the attached handbook carefully as it contains important school information.


Mr. Carl Robinson, Principal
