The Dream Big, Kiss a Pig assembly was a huge success. Click here for the news coverage of the assembly. The Cavett community raised over $4,000 towards Mrs. Buss’s memorial artwork which will be placed in the front hallway upon completion. The artwork is still in the planning stages so watch for updates next school year. Thank you for all of your support and thank you to the teachers who were good sports and puckered up to kiss Waldo the pig.
All of the piggy banks have been emptied, the change has been counted and the totals are IN! The following staff members will be puckering up and kissing pigs at our assembly on Friday:
Preschool – Mrs. Zimmerle
K – Mrs. Kitchen
1 – Ms. Lewis
2 – Ms. Tewalt
3 – Mrs. Bornemeier
4 – Mr. Eckhout
5 – Mrs. Martinez
Office – Mr. Vercellino
Specialists – Ms. Faulkner
Thank you to our generous Cavett community for supporting our efforts to raise funds to honor Mrs. Buss. We are excited to announce that our Dream Big contest raised nearly $4,000. We are almost halfway to our goal for the memorial art project. Thank you from the bottom of our curly pink tails for your generosity.
Did you hear about the big twist in the Dream Big, Kiss a Pig contest? It is no longer the top three teachers, it is now the person from each team, including the specialist team and the office, with the highest amount of donations. So, help us raise money for Mrs. Buss’s memorial and see your favorite teacher or office person kiss a pig!
If students donated a dollar to the BackPack Walk, they can wear a hat to school on Friday, April 19th! Thank you for supporting this important local cause.
Mother Nature has been uncooperative again this week and our Cavett Walkathon has been postponed again. It has been rescheduled for May 10 as we hope for warmer weather. Thank you for your flexibility.
Congratulations to Tashi Wangchuk, Jordan Nguyen and Hunter Horne! These talented students won a poster contest from Diggers Hotline of Nebraska. They were invited to the State Capitol on April 10th for a Governor’s proclamation. The students’ classrooms were awarded a tree and a bench, complete with a tree planting ceremony… all for winning the poster contest. Congratulations!
Go Green Day is blooming on April 19th. This is a day when the Cavett Elementary Community comes together to go green on the school grounds and neighborhood. We will wear green while picking up trash, weeding, watering plants/trees, and in general making our school grounds or neighborhood a better place.
