2017 Teacher of the Year

Joshua Wells
Richard E. Cavazos Elementary
10 Years of Experience

My favorite thing about teaching P.E. is seeing how excited the students are about coming to my class each day.  They are always interested in finding out what our activity is for the day and are eager to learn.

Dear Richard E. Cavazos Parents and Community,


As principal of Cavazos Elementary, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for another great year.  We are all excited to have students back in our classrooms and hallways filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning.   At Richard E. Cavazos, we have great teachers who spend hours planning and creating classroom activities to engage our students in learning.   It is truly a privilege to be part of a community where parents, teachers, and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth.


Once again, welcome back Cheetahs,


Joseph Gullekson

WATCH D.O.G.S. a K-12 program, invites fathers, grandfathers, uncles, or other father figures to volunteer at least one day all day at Cavazos during the school year.  


The program is overseen by a “Top Dog” volunteer who partners with the school administrator to coordinate scheduling and identify opportunities for WatchDOGS to provide assistance at the school. 


WatchDOG volunteers perform a variety of tasks during their volunteer day including monitoring the school entrance, assisting with unloading and loading of buses and cars, monitoring the lunch room, or helping in the classroom with a teacher's guidance by working with small groups of students on homework, flashcards, or spelling.   Please join!
