Cesar Chavez K-8 School is located in the Portsmouth neighborhood on the peninsula created by the regional confluence of the Columbia and Williamette Rivers in the City of Portland. This area is located in the north of the State of Oregon located in the northwestern region of the United States of America. Our school is located not far from where 200 years ago the Corps of Discovery traveled on their way to the Pacific. Lewis and Clark may have camped not far from our school.
Cesar Chavez serves a diverse community representing people from various ethnic and economic groups. It is common to hear languages other than English spoken in the school and neighborhood.
Family and Community Involvement to Enrich Student Learning
SUN Community School is enhancing the Cesar Chavez learning community. We have a wide variety of before and after school classes and programs for students and parents. Classes and programs have included: naturescaping, homework club, cycling club, chess club, student leadership, ESL and a variety of sports. All are free and provide free snacks and beverage to enrolled students. We are consistently seeking partnerships with others. If interested, please contact us.
School partners include connections with local churches, businesses, community organizations and institutions of higher education.
Cesar Chavez houses a school-based health clinic. Funded through Multnomah County, the health clinic provides a variety of health-related services to Cesar Chavez's students.
Cesar Chavez includes an active Parent-Teacher-Student Association (PTSA) working with students, staff, parents and members of the community. Our PTSA provides a weekly “helping Hands” where members conduct various tasks for teachers and the school to help in preparing learning activities for students. Through the leadership of our site council and members of the Cesar Chavez learning community, our school continues to improve in the support of student learning.
