Cavett is sponsoring a Giving of the Grades blood drive on February 19! It is a friendly competition between the grade levels to see which team can get the most donations. Each student that has an adult donate in their honor gets a medal!
Click here to make an appointment to donate. You will need to create an account to sign up. Cavett Elementary is the “code” for our drive.
In a hurry that day? Note the RapidPass address on the flyer below to fill out the paperwork ahead of time and save yourself 15 minutes!
Lincoln Public Schools will NOT have classes on Monday, Jan. 22.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather and blizzard advisory that could consist of snow, sleet, freezing rain and high winds throughout the day.
LPS protocol calls for closely monitoring the weather, as well as sidewalk and road conditions, and making decisions based on the safety of students and staff members.
These are the Cavett singers who took part in the Nebraska All State Children’s Choir last week, November 16th. The performance was at the Lied Center for performing arts. These singers learned their music and rehearsed with Mrs. Fusselman, their music teacher, for a month before joining 350 singers from across the state of Nebraska to form this tremendous choir. The singers were under the direction of Rolo Dilworth. He is a composer, author, musician, clinician and teacher. He is the Professor of Choral Music Education Chair at Temple University’s Boyer College of Music and Dance in Philadelphia, PA.
Nebraska Statutes guarantee that all schools provide a free, appropriate public education (FAPE). Lincoln Public Schools provides all the necessary basic supplies and equipment for students’ use in the classroom. Cavett teachers often purchase extra supplies to add to the materials available in the classroom or for special projects. If interested, students may bring extra materials and supplies for their classroom. Supplies that teachers have found useful to have in classrooms are listed by grade levels. This is, as always, a voluntary donation—not a request or requirement for any child. Many school supplies are sold at deep discounts in the weeks preceding school. Any items donated may be brought to school in August.
