Mentors Matter - We NEED You!

Cesar Chavez is hoping to establish our first mentor program this year. This program would allow for identified students to have a special person in their lives. What we know is that role models and someone to talk to support students in a variety of ways. First and foremost it is someone who cares about this student and can be a sounding board for both challenges and victories. Second this person can help our students set goals and make plans to achieve those goals.


This person would check in with them either once a week or twice a month. This check in time would be established based on the mentors schedule and availability. These are quick 20-30 minute visits during the school day. This small investment allows every child to have a champion in their lives.


We want to cast a wide net to find diverse mentors. If you are interested in being a Chavez Champion Mentor please fill out this form: https://forms.gle/qW627Qw9eLs6jwuo8

Please note that it contains a link to fill out the LEISD background check form as well. Here it ease for quick access as well: https://appgarden2.app-garden.com/VolTrackTX061914.nsf


If you have additional questions about the chance to serve in this capacity please let me know. If you know others that might be interested please share this information with them as well.


Thank you for your partnership - we simply could not do this alone!


Your Proud Principal,

Christine Gibson
