Dear Cheetah Community,


The first part of the 2015-2016 school year has gone by quickly, and it has been an exciting time.   As we reflect on the many things for which we are thankful, I want to take this opportunity to share just a few of them with you:  We are thankful for our students who come to school every day ready to learn – they give us all a daily reminder of what is important and why we are here.  We are thankful for the support of the parents in creating an outstanding partnership for our students.  We are thankful for the teachers, assistants, bus drivers, secretaries, nurses, lunchroom aides, support staff,  and administrators who really care about student achievement and have the best interests of our students at heart.  We are also thankful for our volunteers who enthusiastically contribute so much to our school.

In these most difficult and challenging times, we see dedicated and tireless individuals going above and beyond to make sure that great things happen in our school. They do make a difference, and the children, in their own individual ways, benefit from those efforts.

Most importantly, we are thankful for the parents that have kept the faith in us.  They continue to share their most valuable possession with us and—in most cases— work hard and advocate to be a partner in their children’s education, safety and well-being. For this, we are ever so thankful.

I would like to wish all of you and your families a happy, healthy and relaxing Thanksgiving holiday!


Best Regards,



Joe Gullekson

Principal, Cavazos Elementary

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!

S.T.A.R. (Success Traits Are Recognized) assembly is held on the last Friday of each month (unless otherwise specified).  It featues two students from each class who best exemplify the selected character trait of that month.


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


Parents of students receiving awards are invited to join us to celebrate their child's accomplishments.
