Dear Cabrillo Community,
It has been our pleasure to serve as your Co PTO Presidents for the last two years. Cabrillo is a dynamic and enriching learning community because of all of the outstanding people that put their energy, love and time into it. Reflecting on our 10 years at Cabrillo, it became extremely evident that the common thread that drives us to volunteer or donate is that it is all for the children. Before we, officially, pass the torch to the incoming PTO President we would like to say “thank you”.
