    Chávez Families,

    Welcome back to school!  We are excited for another great school year.  We have added some new staff to our school and made great plans for this upcoming year.  Some big changes to remind families of some of our big changes-

    1. Middle School stays in class until 2:30.  K-5 students will still be dismissed at 2:15.  Students who walk with middle school siblings and bus riders will wait in homework club in the library.
    2. Chavez Homework folder.  All students will have homework four days a week, including 20 minutes of reading every night.  Students will have a bright red folder for homework and school-home communication.
    3. Water.  We have large water dispensars at every fountain for students to use.  We are encouraging all students to bring a reusable water bottle to refill every day.
    4. Morning Dropoff- Morning dropoff for 1st-5th graders will occur in the cafeteria.  Parents who wish to enter and wait with their studnets will need to sign in. 

    Here is to a great first day and year.  We are On Time, On Task and On a Mission.  We are Chavez.  Somos Chavez.

    Dear PPS Families,

    Over the summer, crews will be working in schools throughout the district to address health and safety issues, using funds from the bond that voters approved in May. At the same time, planning is under way for bigger projects to rebuild three high schools and a middle school. We wanted to give you an update on what is coming up.
