Principal's Message

Greetings Planada Learning Community,


Welcome to Cesar E. Chavez Middle School! I am honored to be serving as your principal for the 2021-22 school year. I am excited that you are part of the “Tiger Family”. At CEC we strive to maintain a nurturing and inclusive family oriented culture. We believe that all students deserve to be part of a safe environment that promotes and supports student achievement.


We want all our students to have a great educational experience while attending our school. During these important years, we want to provide every student with opportunities to develop a love for learning in all content areas, to explore new interests, and to expand skills while discovering personal strengths.


We encourage all students to be active participants in their education. Our goal is that every student has a rewarding, positive, and successful experience while attending Cesar E. Chavez Middle School.
