I've been an educator for more than 30 years and absolutely love the students, staff, and families at Cabrillo! My daughter went to school in Wiseburn and I admired then and continue to admire the talents of the teachers, the dedication of the staffm and the strong home-school connections. We are united by our care for children and daily experince simple joys and celebrations of academic and social growth. Cabrillo truly is a place where we "grow and learn toegether!"

"Where We Grow and Learn Together"

Dear Cabrillo Families and Friends,

We are in the season of transformations. Some students are studying the life cycle of a butterfly, others are seeing the changes in our Cabrillo garden, and at our recent student success assemblies, the common theme was celebrating our students tremendous academic and social growth.

This week, May 1-5, we celebrate our national PTA "Teacher Appreciation Week". Thank you for recognizing the talents of our teachers and staff, the multiple any ways they give extra effort that nurtures student growth, and the deep care we have for each child.

On Wednesday, May 17, we highlight our students' accomplishments in the 2016-17 school year as teachers open classroom doors at 7:00 p.m. for students to show and share their work at Cabrillo's Open House.

We need your help and voice to continually improve our work at Cabrillo. Our School Site Council has updated our school survey for 2017.  Please click on this link: and give 5 minutes to completing it.  Results will be reviewed by the School Site Council and the staff as we plan for 2017-2018.

Thank you for your consistent effort to support Cabrillo and your child as we "learn and grow together"!

Important Dates to Notice:

June 9          TEDDE to Mother's Beach in the Marina

We continue forward together,

Margaret Lynch
