Welcome to the 2022-2023 School Year!

It is our pleasure to be working with you this upcoming year! It was great seeing so many of you during our registration days this past week. If your child did not get a chance to get their picture taken, we WILL offer a make- up day after the year starts.

We look forward to your partnership in helping your student grow academically as well as socially/emotionally. Our goal is to support your student daily within a community of belonging in which they feel seen, included, and engaged.

We have established and consistent expectations across our campus for ourselves and our students about what will be in place to make them successful. We will be spending the first days of school clearly communicating what it means to be a Chavez student, getting to know them, and laying the foundation for a successful year. We know these last few years have been challenging, and we are continually committed to putting into place all the components needed for a positive middle school experience.
