Congratulations Miles

Congratulations Miles Budzinski for taking 5th place at the annual LPS Spelling Bee! The annual LPS Spelling Bee is open to students grades 5-8 from elementary and middle schools across the school district. During more than two hours of competition, LPS spellers survived words such as whey, outrageous, eschew, neophyte, umami, bhangra and souchong. Way to go Miles! We are proud of you.

Super Snack Power Challenge

Dear Cavett Families,

We hope that 2015 is off to a great start for your student. Lincoln Public Schools district wellness is offering an opportunity for schools to focus on health through challenges. Our third quarter challenge is entitled The Super Snack Power Challenge.

The goal of this challenge is to help students recognize the link between how much they move and how much they should be eating, as well as what foods are better options as healthy after-school or night snacks.

Students work hard during the school day and having a chance to be active after school helps them both in health and learning. Some students are extremely active outside of school, however, many are less active. Helping all children find ways they can have fun being active throughout their lives is our ultimate goal for building a healthy future for our community.

Your child will have their Super Snack Power Challenge sheet in their Friday Folder. The challenge begins on Friday, January 30th and ends Friday, February 6th. Please talk with your child and help them fill out the form.  There is a prize for the class that turns in the most filled out challenge sheets!

Thank you for partnering with us in building a bright future for your child.

Cavett After School Clubs

Click here for Class Descriptions 

Registration is now closed.


Cavett Elementary School and PTO would like to invite you to participate in the spring session of Cavett After School Clubs!  This program offers a variety of clubs to further enrich our students.  Spring club offerings and information will be sent home in Friday folders and will be available on Cavett website ( for your review.  We hope that you will consider allowing your child the opportunity to participate in one of these wonderful options.

Each club will meet 6 times starting the week of February 2, 2015.  It is important to take note the dates classes are scheduled as some weeks are not consecutive (due to parent/teacher conferences and spring break).  

A minimum of 6 students must be enrolled in order to fund a club.  Any club with less than 6 students will be cancelled and the tuition fee will be refunded.  You will be notified if your child’s club has been cancelled. Once clubs have started for the session, tuition is non refundable.

Online registration will be January 19-26.  Payment must received in the school office by January 28, to secure your child’s spot.  Clubs will be filled on a first come, first serve basis.  So please register and return payment early!!  

Tuition is $35/club for most clubs except those that require a nominal materials/supply fee.  Those clubs will have a slightly higher tuition as the instructors need to purchase supplies or provide materials relevant to the class.  Payment can be made to Cavett PTO and must be received prior to the January 28 deadline in order for your child to be enrolled in the club.  

Clubs will be held on their respective days from 2:53-4pm.  On their scheduled day, students will go directly to the gym when school is dismissed for the day.  They will line up by the sign for their after school club and take attendance.  Children will be supervised in the gym during this time.  At 3 pm your child will be accompanied by their instructor to their after school classroom.  All clubs will dismiss at 4 pm from the main school hallway (door #1 and door #10 only).  Please be prompt when picking up your child; we want to make sure all our students are safe!

Last but not least…we are hoping to expand our program in the future!  If you have interest in sponsoring a club or serving as club supervisor (paid positions), please contact Amanda Trost.
