Care Packages for the Homeless – UPDATE

Thank you Cavett Community! After collections were sorted and bagged, 67 care packages were formed, along with many other miscellaneous items, to donate to the People’s City Mission . When the items were dropped off, the mission worker was speechless and had tears in his eyes. He couldn’t believe all of the items we were donating. He loved the care packages and had plans to distribute many that night. Together we made a difference.

Thank you for your generous donations.943858_834456839998700_6164490813116859146_n

Walk @ Work “Week”

In an effort to promote family togetherness and a healthy lifestyle, the Cavett Wellness Team invites you to come to Cavett to Walk @ Lunch the Week of April 27th-May 1st.

Please come join your child during their lunch recess and walk the Cavett track. Check the Cavett website for grade lunch/recess times. Tuesday, April 26th is a PLC day so lunch/recess times are adjusted slightly.

If lunch time doesn’t work for parents to come, we encourage you to walk the track in the evening with your child. You may choose to eat lunch with your child. Be sure to reserve your school lunch a day early. If you bring a lunch to school to share with your child, we encourage no fast food meals and no sodas.

The National Walk at Lunch Day is sponsored by BCBS of NE. They will make a donation to Nebraska Game & Parks and Special Olympics for each group that participates. We are excited to participate and be a part of this fundraising activity!

Go Cavett Cardinals, let’s get walking!!

Parent Survey

As components of the Connected Learning (CLASS) Plan are implemented across the district, LPS is again partnering with BrightBytes to use the Clarity survey. Clarity helps schools and districts profile technology use and assess preparedness to leverage technology to impact learning. We are reaching out to ask you to take part in a brief questionnaire (approximately 10 min) that will help paint a clearer picture of technology use at school and at home. The data will help align Professional Development and purchasing to the CLASS Plan at the district, building and classroom levels.

To participate, please go to

Your participation and support is important and will make the difference between having a complete versus a limited understanding of technology use and skills in our school. Please know that all of your responses will remain anonymous to protect your privacy. The last day to complete this questionnaire is Friday, May 1.
Thank you for taking part in this important survey!
Questions can be directed to Carrie Copley,, or Tim Hahn,
