The Mission of our school is to provide a safe and enriching learning environment where the whole student is nurtured and developed. Our teachers and administrators pledge to support the academic and emotional wellbeing of each and every student. Students will leave our school prepared with skills and knowledge that will give them advantages throughout their future educational and life experiences. Our rigorous standards challenge all students to rise to their full potential and become the best global citizens they can be.
Cesar Chavez Elementary is proud to recognize outstanding students. Every month, we select the Student of the Month for every classroom to be recognized during our monthly PTO meeting. Additionally one student is selected each month to be our Ambassador of Excellence and represent our school at a districtwide luncheon. Students are also recognized for grades as well as perfect attendance and good behavior each quarter.
I hope this letter finds you and your family in good health and high spirits as we approach the start of a new academic year at Cesar Chavez Elementary. It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I introduce myself as the new principal. My name is Maria Camacho and I bring 19 years of experience in education, and I am deeply passionate about fostering a love for learning and helping students develop the skills they need to succeed. I am honored to have the opportunity to serve as the educational leader of this wonderful school and to partner with you in your child's educational journey. First and foremost, let me express my gratitude for entrusting us with the education and well-being of your child. I understand the importance of this responsibility and the trust you place in us as educators. Please know that I am committed to creating a safe, inclusive, and nurturing environment where every student can thrive and reach their full potential.
I firmly believe that education is a collaborative effort between the school, parents, and the community. Your involvement and support are vital to your child's success, and I encourage you to be actively engaged in their educational journey. I look forward to meeting each one of you personally and getting to know your child. I encourage you to share any concerns, questions, or ideas you may have. Your feedback is invaluable in helping us continuously improve and meet the needs of our students. I am excited about the upcoming school year and the opportunities it holds for our students.
Thank you for entrusting us with your child's education. Wishing you and your family a wonderful start to the school year!
Steps in Donating: 1. What is it? Arizona Law (A.R.S. 43-1089.01) allows taxpayers to receive a tax credit of up to $200 for a single individual or a head of household and $400 for a married couple filing a joint return for donations that benefit students in our public school. That's not just a deduction, it's a tax credit-it reduces what you owe in the state taxes, dollar -for-dollar.
2. Who can benefit from this law? All Arizona tax payers are eligible: you do not have to have children within the school district to benefit from this law. You can now donate through April 15 each year and claim your donation on the previous or current tax year.
3. What qualifies? By law, only donations to extracurricular activities, such as tutoring, athletics, band, orchestra, field trips, special programs and more qualify for the tax credit. Donations must be made to the school district, but directly towards a specific activity at a specific school.
