The capacity to learn is a gift; the ability to learn is a skill; the willingness to learn is a choice.

*****Parents' Corner*****7th Grade BBQ Coming Up! See details below....Top of Page

Our annual 7th grade Hot Dog BBQ will be on Monday June 3rd, while the 8th graders are at Six Flags.
We are asking for a $2.00 donation to help cover our costs. Each class has been assigned something to ring for the BBQ. Our class is in charge of the cookies! No home baked cookies please. We are required to collect all sealed packages. Any package of your child's favorite cookie will be appreciated....seems the Oreos and Chips Ahoy have been the favorites in the past.
Information on the 2020 Europe trip is here! Our 2020 Europe trip will be to....London and Paris! We will be leaving on Monday the week after school gets out, June 8-19th. Our "Kick Off" meeting took place on Thursday, April 25, at 6:00 P.M. We are still offering a huge discount for early sign ups-$500.00 until the last day of school. If there is still room for more travelers in the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year, we will still offer the trip, however the 500.00 discount will be gone. The full brochures are in, so call me for an appt. see all the great things we will be doing and seeing! I am happy to meet with you! I have been meeting with people nearly every day after school. This trip has drummed up a lot of interest. We may be full by the end of this school year. Remember, this is not only Cavitt and Olympus students, but incoming Ridgeview and Excelsior 6th graders (our incoming 7th graders) are also interested! Don't be left out.
