A Message from the Principal

Dear Cabrillo Families and Supporters,

Welcome to the 2018-19 school year!  This promises to be another outstanding year at Cabrillo Middle School!  We will work together to continue our tradition of guiding students through these (sometimes awkward) middle years to reach their full potential, academically and personally.           

Cabrillo is known for being an excellent school, and it is!  We have caring teachers and staff who work hard to help students think critically, communicate effectively, and be kind to one another. This year, we are improving our implementation of Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards to be even more engaging and supportive of students. And we will continue to offer some of the best electives programs in California!  Our clubs, intramural sports, and after school athletics are popular with students. We have a positive climate and culture at Cabrillo which is accentuated by our involved families and community support. As a result, our students grow tremendously!


We will welcome our 6th grade Mariners to a W.E.B. (Where Everybody Belongs) orientation program on August 17 from 8 a.m. to noon. This includes a fun orientation and then will be followed up with events throughout the year where groups of ten 6th graders work with two 8th grade leaders on fun and meaningful activities.


Please join us for Back to School Night on August 30. We will have an assembly in the cafeteria at 6:00 p.m. and classroom visits from 6:30-8:00. I look forward to seeing you at school events or on campus as we work together to help your children grow and learn.

Kind regards,
Lorelle Dawes, Principal
