Welcome to Cavitt JHS!

Welcome to Cavitt JHS!

Gold Ribbon Schools - California Department of Education
A portrait of Jennifer PlattWelcome Families!  
I am excited about the promise a new  school year brings to us – renewed enthusiasm, spirit and dedication! We have made amazing growth at Cavitt JHS and we are inspired to continue our efforts!

We are proud of our achievements as a school including being named a Gold Ribbon Model School for our STEM Program in 2015 by the State of California.  Only 193 junior high schools earned this distinction in the state and only 2 schools in Placer County!  We have been a California Honor Roll Scholar School since 2013 and then earned that award again in 2015. 
Our students, in small groups and as individuals, have earned high praise this past year! The Cavitt Band earned a Gold Award during Spring Tour competition and the Outstanding Award for Trumpeters!  Our after-school VEX teams did outstanding during competitions this year also. They won the Judges Award at the Golden West RoboStangs VEX Robotics Tournament. They were also a part of the Tournament Champions alliance at Sacred Heart Middle School VRC Tournament and advanced to the California State VRC Championship! Our students are invested in learning and demonstrating their skills and talents! We are so proud of our dedicated and curious students! 
We are proud of our growth in every category and of our outstanding students' performance!  We will continue to make decisions that we think will address our students' best interest as we ready them for their futures. We continue to implement the WEB (Where Everyone Belongs) program which supports our incoming 7th graders and new 8th graders, as it provides mentorship by trained 8th graders for increased social support and respectful behaviors between students!
I would like to acknowledge a few specific accomplishments.We are excited about our new 7th Grade STEM elective offered this year - Science Challenge.  Our students will be studying Forensics, Comparative Anatomy and a multi-media Challenge 21 Project! Our Science Tech class will be offered for the second year with Robotics, Enviornmental Chemistry, Engineering and Rocketry as focus areas! Our media lab is running with a daily live news program that is uploaded to our website, podcasts and will be using Stop Motion software this year! Student Achievement has always been very important at Cavitt; but, we instituted an updated student achievement recognition program last year that will be continuing. Go Cowboys!  

Please take some time to browse through our website as we continue to add new content! We love to "show off" our students' skills, talents and interests and we are proud of what our Cowboys accomplish!
