César Chávez Elementary,

Lifetouch Pictures will be on campus Thursday, March 11 (Noon – 5:00 p.m.) and Friday, March 12 (Noon to 4:00 p.m.) for students and staff interested in having their 2020-21 school year photo taken. Unfortunately, the composite class picture with Teacher and Students will not be available. For safety reasons, we are asking parents/guardians to make an appointment on SignUp Genius here. On Picture Day, please have your child line up at their scheduled time and line up safely, 6 feet from other people. We anticipate each student will wait no longer than 15 minutes. Masks are to be worn until they approach the camera. At that time, they will remove the mask, smile, and re-mask.

If you have any questions, please call our school office at (530) 757-5490.

Have a great week!



Virtual Author visit to CCE on March 11, 5:45 p.m., Zoom

Autor Jacobs

About the author: Jordan Jacobs (www.j-jacobs.com) has loved archaeology for as long as he can remember. His childhood interests in mummies, castles and Indiana Jones led to his participation in his first excavation, at age 13, in California's Sierra Nevada. After completing a high school archaeology program in the American Southwest, he followed his passion through his education at Stanford, Oxford, and Cambridge. Since then, Jordan's work for the Smithsonian, the American Museum of Natural History, and UNESCO Headquarters in Paris has focused on policy and the protection of archaeological sites in the developing world. He is also a Davis High School and Cesar Chavez Elementary school alumnus (back when it was West Davis Elementary)!

Jordan's research and travel opportunities have taken him to almost sixty countries-- from Cambodia's ancient palaces, to Tunisia's Roman citadels, to Guatemala's Mayan heartland and the voodoo villages of Benin. Jordan now works at UC Berkeley and lives in Davis with his wife, daughters--Ada and Wren--and son Cormac.
