    Cesar Chavez Student Health Center Closing at End of School Year

    Services continue to be available at nearby Roosevelt High School

    What is happening?

    The Cesar Chavez Student Health Center is closing at the end of this school year. The last day of service will be June 6, 2019. The Student Health Center team will work with clients to transition them to a new center.


    Why is it happening?

    Due to lower use of the Cesar Chavez health center and increased cost of operations, Multnomah County is consolidating Student Health Center locations to serve the greatest number of youth.


    Where can students get health services?

    Students can access health services at any of the nine Multnomah County Student Health Centers. The nearest location to you is at Roosevelt High School, just one mile away. The Roosevelt Health Center is open 5 days a week and serves any K-12 aged youth who lives or goes to school in Multnomah County.


    Roosevelt Student Health Center is located at 6941 N Central St; 503-988-3909.


    Additionally, Multnomah County operates seven primary care clinics, including the nearby North Portland Community Health Center. Speak with the Cesar Chavez Student Health Center team to learn more.

    Los servicios continuarán disponibles en Roosevelt High School

    ¿Qué pasa?

    El Cesar Chavez K-8 Student Health Center cerrará a finales de este año escolar. El último día de servicios será el 6 de junio de 2019. Nuestro equipo trabajará con los clientes para transferir servicios a un nuevo centro.


    ¿Por qué ocurre esto?

    Debido a un menor uso de servicios en el centro de Cesar Chavez K-8  y un incremento en los costos de operación, Multnomah County está consolidando los Student Health Centers para dar servicios a un mayor número de jóvenes.


    ¿Adónde pueden ir los estudiantes para obtener servicios de salud?

    Los estudiantes pueden acceder a los servicios de salud en cualquier de los 9 Multnomah County Student Health Centers. El lugar más cerca a usted es Roosevelt High School, menos de una milla de distancia. El centro de Roosevelt High School está abierto 5 días de la semana y sirve a todos los jóvenes que viven en o van a una escuela en Multnomah County.  


    Roosevelt Student Health Center está ubicado en 6941 N Central St; 503-988-3909.

  • Dear Students and Parents/Guardians of Cesar Chavez K-8, 

    Welcome to the Cesar Chavez family! Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about our Cesar Chavez School community. We are so excited for the 2018-19 school year! Our staff is working hard to prepare engaging and rewarding learning experiences for all students. We look forward to seeing our returning families, and we are excited to get to know our new kindergarten families and their students. At Cesar Chavez, we place high value on our partnership with parents, families, community and we invite you to be an active part of helping students to achieve their full potential.

    We consider it a privilege to work with your kids every day to help them be their very best selves. We believe that each and every student has a gift to share with the world and we work hard to unlock their highest potential. We have high expectations of our students, and we have high expectations of ourselves to help all Cesar Chavez students learn and grow into well-rounded citizens and critical thinkers. Cesar Chavez aims to develop leadership skills, social and emotional skills, academic skills to prepare students for success not only in middle school but also in high school, career, relationships and life-long learning.

    Cesar Chavez students will be taught to view themselves as learners and to think about what it looks like to be an active learner and thinker. Critical thinking and problem-solving skills are as important as content knowledge. According to a recent Department of Labor report, 65% of students will be employed in jobs that do not yet exist, so it will be important for all students to acquire the analytical, evaluative, and creative skills to apply such thinking toward becoming successful in the jobs of the future. 

    To help your student be successful in our school, we need to help them understand what is required to be a good learner both inside and outside of the classroom. Talk about qualities and learning behaviors such as: taking positive risks, viewing errors as opportunities, working to recover from a mistake, giving and receiving feedback, asking questions, collaborating with peers, setting goals, planning with a purpose and tracking their own progress. Students need both high challenge and high support to grow as learners.  We look forward to helping students maximize their growth at Cesar Chavez K-8.

    Please continue to visit our website for updates throughout the year. If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. You can reach me at or 503-916-6451. We invite you to be our partners in our work. We look forward to working with families to accomplish great things for our students!
