The office is located at the second driveway past the tennis courts. The lower lot is locked at 7:30 until after school starts and again at 2:00 until the buses clear after school. Feel free to park by the tennis courts and walk down our walkway to the office! We look forward to meeting you!
Cavitt is a STEM school; so what type of technology is available to support student learning?
Instructional Technology Resources
EVERY classroom in the school has a Promethean Board (interactive smart board), a Voice Enhancement System and a document camera. Teachers use these resources daily to postively impact your child(ren)'s learning experiences.
Every English Teacher has a class set of Chromebooks in order to facilitate lessons that mirror projects and work that might occur in the work place.
Cavitt staff and student have access to four computer labs both mobile and traditional. Cavitt has two IMac traditional labs that every teacher has access to throughout the day and two mobile Mac labs.
The two mobile labs are located in our Science building and our Math building. The lab stationed in the Science rooms is shared by 3 staff members and is utilized to support probe equipment and class projects. The lab stationed in Math rooms is shared by 3 staff members and is utilized to support Mathia from our Carnegie program.
We are currently working on providing our math rooms with Chromebook labs as our math program now has software available on the portable platform.
PowerSchool Student & Family Access
Families and students have access to the online grading program. Grades are updated often; thereby allowing constant monitoring of your child's progress on assignments and homework assignments/completion. We hope that student are ready for more self-monitoring; however, PowerSchool is in place to support school/family communication.
As a parent/guardian, you can choose to have automatic updates (grade checks) sent to your mailbox!
My child is going to be a new seventh grader or is a new eighth grader, when can I purchase PE clothes, a planner, etc?
The Cavitt PTC is proud to support the Orientation of our 7th and 8th Graders by supporting the Cavitt Office getting our students the materials they need before the first day of school!
For 7th Grade and New 8th Grade Families, you are invited to attend the Parent / Guardian Orientation at 8:45am in the Small Gym while your student attends WEB Orientation at 8:30am. This occurs the day before school starts. After the Parent / Guardian Orientation, you can secure a planner, yearbook, PE clothes, make a donation to the PTC and you receive your student's schedule.
For Returning 8th graders, the above maybe purchased in the library the day before school starts from 8:30 - 9:15am. If Returning 8th Graders are able to come during this time, students earn a FREE MILE PASS to be used during the 1st Trimester.
After the school year starts, all of the above will be available in the school office.
Where can I find out information on what announcements are made to students on the CTV program?
Cavitt is doing Podcasts of our CTV morning announcements and our school newspaper is on-line! Go to the Department link to find out how our students are using technology everyday!
I heard that the school television broadcasts (CTv) are now online. Where would I find it on the webpage?
CTv will have its own webpage on our website! Families will able to watch the daily broadcasts and keep up to date on Cavitt events. We are so proud of our 8th grade anchors and our 7th and 8th grade students who run the cameras and the main board! As our new website is still under construction, so is our ability to link our CTv programs. We will be up and running as soon as possible!
Where can I find information on Cavitt Sport Teams?
The Sports Zone is where you will find all the information you will need! Information includes schedules (which change often due to the league making adjustments), sport team rules and directions to games. Often during the CTV morning broadcast you can find out how our teams faired during their games and learn when tryouts are for the next season's sports.
How do I stay informed on school activities and information?
We send out a school communication twice a month via email to families. Our school newsletter, The Kickin' Cowboys Newsletter, is emailed at the beginning of the month and shorter informational emails are sent out during the month. A PDF version of the monthly newsletter can also be found on our new website. Our CTV (news show) is uploaded daily for parents to watch.
What school supplies will my student need?
Each academic teacher communicates his/her needs for the students at Back to School night. If there are supply needs from enrichment classes, teachers communicate to the students in class and, if needed, by an email or newsletter to families.
Are there opportunities for a parent to volunteer?
Cavitt has many opportunities for parents to be an active part of our campus. We encourage parents to volunteer for Cavitt's Parent Teacher Club (PTC), the Eureka Schools Foundation or serve on our Site Council. We have also had great success with our PAWS program. In the PAWS program, parents sign up to walk the campus on a designated route with a partner and report anything that looks out of the ordinary. We also have opportunities to volunteer in the library, chaperone at a dance, be part of the graduation committee or assist with Art Docent.
