Student Council News

by Rosalia 

Here's some of the latest news.

Student Council Elections went well.  We have Noah as President, Elisa as Vice President, Taylor C. as Treasurer, Malia as Secretary,and Rosalia as Historian and Webmaster.  Everyone did a great job! Plus everyone who ran for Student Council got donuts at the end.  Now that was tasty.


We had our first meeting a little bit ago and it went great.  We planned out a lot of things like we are gong to be selling Santa Sweets and have a few fundraisers.  We are going to have more meetings throughout the year to plan more things.  Thanks for your participation!

September, Classified Employee of the Month – Bethany Cavender

Bethany Cavender EOM.jpg


Bethany has been involved with Naples School for over 20 years as both a professional and parent.  She has worn many hats within our school, and she has worn them well.

While employed at Naples School she has held the positions of Reading Specialist., Librarian, Media Specialist, and now Title 1 teacher.  She has also put in many countless hours as a volunteer and contributor to our parent organization.  In addition, she is currently pursuing her teacher credential, and once finished will be a heavily sought after candidate for open teaching positions in our district.   

A common theme throughout Mrs. Cavender’s career has been her willingness to go the extra mile for kids.  As librarian, if you ever needed a good book suggestion you would go see Mrs. Cavender who would happily take the time to help you make a great selection.  Her library, at times, has appeared to be a living jungle as she decorated many scenes to engage the students.  If you walk into her room today you will see a large homemade tree and a room full of fun and splashes of colors. 

In addition to academic instruction many of our students go to Mrs. Cavender for an encouraging word, a hug, or someone willing to listen.  In fact, some of our staff do the same.  Her compassion and caring demeanor is on display daily.

Mrs. Cavender makes work fun for everyone with her witty sense of humor, positive attitude, creativity, and love for chocolate.  She exhibits a continuous concern for students and is willing to put forth extra time and energy toward making her school great.  As a new principal I have appreciated her candor, wisdom, and problem-solving abilities.  She is an educator who truly wants to make a difference – and she truly has!  Naples School is a better place because of her.


Congratulations Mrs. Cavender!




In an effort to make our school a safer place, ALL VISITORS WILL BE REQUIRED TO CHECK IN AT THE OFFICE, where they will receive visitor's badge.  All doors, except the one that leads straight to the office will now remain locked during the day.  Although we are a small family-friendly school and we know most of you by sight or name, we are required to strictly enforce this new policy.  Thank you for your understanding.

Leaving a Legacy of Love and Life Long Learning.

Halloween Doors

Buddy Badger and Nurse Moore

Buddy Badger celebrated his birthday with some of our students this week.  In addition to a birthday celebration, complete with cupcakes, juice and party hats, Buddy and Nurse Moore taught the children the importance of hand washing.  Did you know that if you sing "The Happy Birthday Song" twice, you will have washed your hands long enough to eliminate most germs? Each student also got their very own bottle of hand sanitizer as a party gift.  Thanks Buddy and Nurse Moore!

 Curriculum Director, Robin Merrifield, sent this email to the staff.  Mr.Morton thought it would be worth sharing with our parents on our web page because most parents can relate to this......   
We've all been involved in a conversation like this at some point in our lives; either as the parent, the child or both.  The question makes for a short, quick and frankly useless conversation in the car or at the dinner table.  Boring convos with kids shall be no more!

Here is a quick link for a great blog regarding questions parents can ask their kids to spur conversations about their day at school.
