Come Celebrate Mrs. Chapman’s Retirement – Tomorrow after school from 2:45-3:45 on the playground!

It has come time for our beloved mayor of Asbury to spread her eagle wings into retirement! Mrs. Chapman will be retiring from education after spending her 30 years at Asbury. So many students and families have been lucky to be a part of her life the past three decades. Because she feels that same sentiment, she would love to celebrate with former students, colleagues and families after school on May 17 on the blacktop.

What- Mrs. Chapman’s retirement celebration!

When- May 17 at 2:45-3:45 pm

Where- Asbury blacktop
