Dear Cavazos’ Families,


Welcome to the opening of what promises to be a wonderful school year!   Our first week was wonderful.  The students came to school ready to learn.   At this time of the year, there is great anticipation of what's to come, and I am as excited as the Cavazos’ teachers, children, and parents.  


Together, teachers, students, and parents/guardians make a strong Cheetah family.  We appreciate your support as your child enters the classroom, learns, and grows through the year.  Let’s all commit to have a great school year, setting everyone, students, as well as teachers, up for success.


Throughout the year I look forward to meeting the new members of our community and connecting with returning community members. I encourage families to get to know each other so that we can build new friendships and support each other as the need arises.    A few things to make our year go more smoothly – first, please help us to be good neighbors.  The traffic flow around the school is counterclockwise; the passenger door always opens to the curb for safety reasons.  Make sure to park legally; be aware of blocking driveways.   Do not park next to the curb and leave your car unattended.  And please join our fabulous PTO.   They do great things for our school.  Finally, school begins at 7:30 a.m.  You set your child up for success by getting him/her to school on time, ready to learn.


Here’s to a great school year!

Principal, Cavazos Elementary

The assembly takes place at 7:45 am in the gym.  Announcements and pledges will take place once all classes are present and seated.

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!
