Principal's Message

Being the principal of Cesar Chavez Elementary is a great honor and responsibility.  As someone who grew up in El Sereno, I am amazed at the development and some of the new challenges the neighborhood presents.


Our priorities are to provide a safe, engaging and enjoyable environment where children and adults can achieve their greatest potential.  This means we endeavor to keep our focus on what is good and necessary for children.  


Their future success, whether it be college or training for the career of their choice, are doors we want to open and keep open for our students. We welcome families into our school and we build upon the lessons they have already taught their children about being respectful and honorable citizens. 


We are proud to be a public school that offers a comprehensive instructional program to all children.


Finally, we want to make sure that our children understand the legacy of Cesar Chavez.  Our students should understand that the values that he advocated: education, participating in the governing process and caring for others are American values.  Thank you for trusting us with your children and we look forward to seeing you soon.
