18-19 Voluntary Supply List

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.

All State Choir

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.
