Welcome to
Friends of Chappell

Back to school block party!

Join Friends of Chappell for our Back to School Block Party! The event is from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, August 29, in Winnemac Park (by the Chappell playground). To celebrate the new school year at Chappell Elementary, we're channeling the spirit of wonderful neighborhood block parties with games, food and more! Come reunite with old friends, or if you're new to the school, make new ones! Also at the event:

Meet the new Chappell Vice Principal

Learn about Chappell's new beekeeping program and taste some honey!

Food from Sweet Virgnia's Kitchen & Baobab BBQ will be available for purchase.

Refreshing paletas will be available for purchase.

Thank you Roots & Friends!
