Dear Cesar Chavez Families, 

We’d like to welcome all Chavez families to the 2014-2015 school year.  School will begin for 1st-8th grade students on Tuesday, September 2nd, 2015. Kindergarten students will start on Friday, September 5th.

School Goal for 2014-2015

This year we would like to develop good academic habits by having a more focused goal on attendance. In particular, arriving to school on time. Students are late after 8:00 a.m. With the help of our teachers and community, it is our goal to encourage those who can, to arrive on time and be at school every day.

School Supplies

We are fortunate again this year to have Comcast sponsor backpacks for all of our students, K-8 along with Schoolhouse Supplies. Most of the basic supplies are provided in the backpacks. What would be useful for our K-8 students are a box of Kleenex, a couple extra packs of pencils, three spiral notebooks. For 6-8 students, at least a 2 inch wide 3-ring binder, 8 tab dividers. 

August 19th, Community Care Day

We will be hosting our community service day on Tuesday, August 19th. Over 100 students from the University of Portland will be there to help us out this year! We invite your family to join us as we clean up the campus and organize things in the building to make sure we start the year off right. We will be meeting 1:30p.m. in the cafeteria and working until 5:30p.m. with a BBQ to follow.  We hope to see you there! If you cannot attend, we are in need of rakes, shovels, and clippers for that day. You can drop them off with our head custodian Manny on Monday, the 18th before 2:00 p.m. 

Kinder Parent Social - Welcome new parents! Join us for coffee and donuts in the library after you drop your child off for their first day of Kindergarten, September 5th. Current Chavez parents will be there to welcome you and answer any questions you might have about the Chavez School Community. We know the first day of Kindergarten is an exciting and sometimes emotional experience for both kids and parents.

Class placement – The K-5 student class placement lists will be available in the gymnasium and cafeteria where the children will line up with their classes. Middle school schedules will be available in the cafeteria 8:00 a.m. after the primary students are dismissed. Schedules will be passed out by counselor and teachers.

A Message from the Principal

Estimadas familias de César Chávez,

Nos gustaría dar la bienvenida a todas las familias de Chávez con el año escolar 2014-2015. Escuela comenzará para los estudiantes primero a octavo grado el martes, 2 de septiembre de 2015. Los estudiantes de Kindergarten comenzarán el viernes, 5 de septiembre.

Meta Escolar para 2014-2015

Este año nos gustaría desarrollar buenos hábitos académicos y tener un objetivo más centrado en la asistencia. En particular, llegar a la escuela a tiempo. Los estudiantes son marcados tarde después de las 8:00 AM. Con la ayuda de nuestros profesores y la comunidad, es nuestra meta para animar a todos, para llegar a tiempo y estar en la escuela todos los días.

Útiles Escolares

Somos afortunados de nuevo este año en tener mochilas escolares de los patrocinadores de Comcast para todos nuestros estudiantes, K-8 junto con Schoolhouse Supplies. La mayor parte de los utiles básicos están dentro de las mochilas. Lo que va faltar para nuestros estudiantes K-8 son una caja de Kleenex, un par de paquetes extra de lápices, tres cuadernos. Para estudiantes in grados 6-8, al menos una amplia carpeta de 3 anillos de 2 pulgadas, 8 divisores.

19 de agosto Día de Cuidado Comunitario

Vamos a tener nuestro día de servicio comunitario el martes 19 de agosto. Más de 100 estudiantes de la Universidad de Portland estarán allí para ayudarnos este año! Invitamos a su familia para unirse con nosotros para limpiar la escuela y organizar las cosas en el edificio para asegurarse de que comenzamos el año de un modo positive para alumnos. Nos reuniremos 1:30. en la cafetería y trabaja hasta las 5:30 pm con una barbacoa. Esperamos contar con tu presencia! Si usted no puede asistir, estamos en la necesidad de rastrillos, palas y podadoras para ese día. Puede dejarlos con Manny el lunes, día 18 antes de 2:00.

Padres de Kinder

Bienvenidos los nuevos padres! Únase con nosotros para café y donuts en la biblioteca después de dejar a su niño/a por su primer día de jardín de niños, 5 de septiembre. Padres de Chávez estará allí para darle la bienvenida y responder a cualquier pregunta que pueda tener acerca de la Comunidad Escolar Chávez. Sabemos que el primer día de Kinder es una experiencia emocionante ya veces emocional para los niños y los padres.

Signación de clases -

Las listas de signación de clase estudiantes K-5 estarán disponibles en el gimnasio y la cafetería donde los niños se juntan con sus clases. Horarios de escuela intermedia estarán disponibles en la cafetería a las 8:00 a.m. Los horarios se van a repartir por la consejera y los maestros.
