Innovative classroom grant
awarded to Cavelero Mid-High
A group of highly motivated students and teachers at Cavelero plan to create and perform a production by the students. The final production of “Just another Cavelero Musical” will be performed in the spring for their fellow classmates and the greater Lake Stevens community.
“We are very honored to accept the award of $1500 granted to this project. However, “thank you” doesn’t seem to be enough to express our sincere gratitude,” Grant Manager, Vicky Davenport said.
As the New Year starts, and with the help of this grant, students are planning music, designing sets and costumes and will begin rehearsals.
“I am very excited about this because of the collaborative efforts of students, teacher, parents and how it is getting the whole school involved,” John Gebert, Cavelero principal said. “This year the group is well organized, motivated and anxious to put on a real production. In fact, a student has written a script for a musical production that will highlight the talents of various students.”
