Congratulations to the 4th Graders on winning the Cavett Box Top Bowl!! They won with 4,383 BoxTops, over 43 touchdowns!! The popcorn party will be held Friday, November 14th at 2:00. The popcorn will be from We-Be-Poppin and they have assured that only salt and corn oil are used in the processing of the white popcorn. Thank you to all of the grades who contributed their BoxTops! Keep collecting them for the Spring!
Calling all Cavett parents! Your input is needed. We are reaching out to ask you to take part in a brief questionnaire (approximately 5 minutes) that will help paint a clearer picture of technology use at at home. 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.
Your participation and support is important and will make the difference between having a complete versus a limited understanding of the technology use of Cavett students at home. Unfortunately, Cavett did not receive a statistically significant number of parent responses last year. We are hoping to increase that number this year.
Please click here to take the survey. Help us by encouraging other Cavett families to complete the survey as well. Thanks again for your help!
On Wednesday, October 1st Cavett’s Liberty First Credit Union will officially re-open for all 2nd-5th grade students.
Cavett Elementary and Liberty First Credit Union are excited to begin this joint partnership. The branch will be open
every Wednesday afternoon (2:00-2:45) for 2nd-5th grade students to make deposits into their own savings account. On
their very first deposit (for new account members), no matter when that first deposit occurs, Liberty First will match it up
to $5! The credit union tellers will be some of our very own 4th and 5th grade students. They wrapped up their teller
training yesterday and are eager to begin working with customers on Wednesday. Congratulations to the following
students who were hired as tellers:
To celebrate the 200th Anniversary of the Star Spangled Banner, honor September 11th, and prepare for Constitution Week next week, our fourth and fifth graders gathered to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, and to sing the Star Spangled Banner and the Preamble to the Constitution. Even though the celebration had to be moved indoors due to the weather, our spirits weren’t dampened one bit.
One of our mottos is Cavett Cares! We are so fortunate to be part of such a caring and giving community. Lincoln Public
Schools students have developed an opportunity for all of us to give back to the school community, it is called Student
Serve. Student Serve is a student-led, district-wide initiative committed to instilling civic responsibility and preserving
democratic ideology in students by promoting behaviors of good citizenship in their local, national, and global
communities. It is now Student Serve Week, from September 8th-12th. All grade level teams will devote at least
one of their fitness breaks to give back to our community. What a wonderful way for our students to serve our community.
Here’s how some of our grade levels are participating in Student Serve Week at Cavett:
- First graders: writing letters to soldiers in Mrs. Elsberry’s nephew’s Army troop.
- Third graders: making cards for the residents at Clark Jeary. The cards will be delivered on Friday.
- Fourth graders: cleaning up the outdoor classroom.
- Fifth Graders: pulling weeds in the courtyard.
In honor of Grandparent’s Day, students are encouraged to ask their grandparent or “grandfriend” to have lunch with them at school during the week of September 8th. A box lunch from Little King’s is available to order for grandparents/grandfriends for $6.00 (includes turkey sub, chips, cookie & water). Please return the form from your child’s Friday folder with payment by Friday, September 5th. PLEASE NOTE:***Registration is required even if not ordering box lunch*** Students will need to eat hot lunch or bring their own cold lunch. We hope your child enjoys this special time with their guest.
Please plan to join us for grade level curriculum nights. All curriculum nights will start in the Multi-Purpose room at 4:00 pm.

Second graders are learning about the life cycle of butterflies. They are eagerly waiting for the butterflies to emerge! We are hopeful they will emerge by the weekend. Watch the live video by clicking here. (Please note you will have to log in to the Livestream site to see the video.)
School begins on Tuesday, August 12th. School will be dismissed an hour early (1:53 PM) the first week of school (Aug. 12-15). We encourage parents to wait to eat lunch with students until at least the 2nd week of school. This will provide ample time for all students to learn our lunchroom procedures.
