Dear Cabrillo Families,

The Cabrillo PTO wanted to share a fun and family friendly event, the Pacifica Education Foundations’s Family Fun Run in San Pedro Park on Sunday, June 4th. The PEFATHON VII!

The PEFATHON raises funds to support Slam Poetry21st Century LearningElementary School Music and Middle School Band  for Cabrillo and all K-8 public schools in Pacifica.

Of special note, is that this year PEF is striving to extend the middle school STEM curriculum  program to enhance the  Elementary School Computer Science.

Please register to race (or do the family fun run/walk) here: https://www.racemine.com/pefathon/events/2017/pefathon-2017

After the race, participants can enjoy breakfast burritos and smoothies and stay for the fitness fair (which includes yoga and zumba) as well as kid-friendly activities for Cabrillo students (imagination playground, bounce house, tattoos, face painting, and more!)  

Early-bird registration ends May 19th!  So sign up now! 

Thank you!

Updates April 26

Grades 3 – 8 will be testing. Testing for fourth grade begins next week. Third, Fifth, Sixth, Seventh and Eighth will begin the following week. During this time, please try to make sure that students are getting the rest they need each night and that they have an opportunity to have breakfast. The testing is not easy, and it does require some stamina. Please be on time for school as well. Students work much better when stress levels are low, and being late to school can put undue pressure on students.


Homework Center Is Closed During The Testing Window.


6th Graders’ Families Please Note: Proof of T-Dap boosters have to be on file in the office before they can begin 7th grade. They’re coming in little by little. Keep up the good work. Thank you. Only 18 more to go!


Order Your Yearbook Today: Online Orders Only Go to: yearbookforever.com Cost: $25.00 until May 4th $30.00 until June 1st After June 1st, the cost will be $35.00 – cash only to purchase in office.
