Principal's Message

Picture of CCE Principal, Veronica Dunn iBienvenidos! Welcome, to César Chávez Elementary School! It is a great honor to be named principal of the Total Spanish Immersion K-6 school established by parents in the Davis Joint Unified School District in 1982. César Chávez Elementary School is home to approximately 600 students. Our amazing Spanish immersion teachers are experienced and are experts in the total language immersion model that supports instructional minutes focusing on Spanish language acquisition; K-1 is 100% Spanish instruction, 2nd grade 90:10, 3rd 80:20, 4th 75:25, and 5th-6th grade 70:30. In the last decade, CCE received the California Department of Education Distinguished Schools Award for the implementation of our Spanish Reading Program, as well as the parent run Círculo (book in a bag) program that supports students’ Spanish literacy. Our school community is culturally and linguistically diverse; together teachers and parents form our parent teacher association called, SIPAT, or Spanish Immersion Parent and Teachers. The strong partnerships, relationships our parent and teacher committees and SIPAT have ensure that our school goals create a positive school climate that produces successful academic, social and emotional outcomes in equitable, inclusive and multicultural ways. Our motto is iSí, se puede! Yes, we can!
