Sara DeWeese Puts the "A" in STEAM


When STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) made its debut three years ago, Cabrillo Middle School (CMS) was the perfect spot for the 49ers and Chevron to begin their partnership sponsoring the 49ers STEM Leadership Institute (SLI). With the Silicon Valley Education Foundation (SVEF) and the Santa Clara Unified School District (SCUSD) helping to coordinate the effort, everything seemed to come together at CMS, with its empathic service-oriented model, located just four miles from Levi's Stadium.


Everybody agrees that it is essential for public education to provide programs such as SLI to its students, to prepare them to be future leaders of innovation, driving the economies of the country and the world, but it's not quite that simple. Logic and brain science indicate that STEM instruction must be counterbalanced by the arts and CMS has an art teacher who is doing just that.


Like her Dutch predecessors, Rembrandt and Van Gogh, Sara DeWeese's dynamic personality, creative nature and practical skill as an art teacher make her the perfect complement to STEM. So beloved by students and staff, Sara, a twenty year veteran of CMS, is the consummate choice to be nominated for the College Football Playoff Foundation's Extra Yard for Teachers' Award.


Sara is so deserving and we are proud to work with her.

Important Safety Message: Clown-related social media threats

Santa Clara Unified is monitoring local and national social media activity and news reports warning that clowns will show up at schools and do harm. While we are not aware of any credible threats directed at our schools, students, or staff, we have notified law enforcement so that authorities and our school resource officers can also be on alert for any suspicious activity.

We recognize that many families are on high alert and that it is frightening to receive messages from your children regarding any potential safety matters. The District and your schools will always alert and inform you of potential threats as quickly as possible, and please don't hesitate to call your school when you have questions or need to verify the information you've heard third-hand.

We will take seriously any such activity and will work with law enforcement to respond swiftly to any threats directed at the safety of our school communities.

If you witness suspicious activity in or around a school, please call your school or the District Office (408) 423-2000 or for an immediate threat please call Santa Clara Police Department at (408) 615-5580. Thank you for your continued partnership to ensure the safety of our students and schools.

Much Deserved Recognition -- Message from Principal Garber

Recognized for our Caring School Climate


At least six thousand students have matriculated through Cabrillo Middle School (CMS) since I began teaching in room twenty-two, twenty-two years ago.  So much has changed since I arrived; Common Core is the new instructional approach, SBAC is the new testing method, Local Control is the new Funding Formula, the school has been rebuilt from the ground up and the 49ers moved to Santa Clara, built Levi’s Stadium and decided to begin the 49ers STEM Leadership Institute at CMS.


But despite all these changes, the CMS faculty has remained remarkably stable with seasoned teachers taking on leadership roles, like participation in our Culture Climate Committee (CCC). This committee meets regularly to take a realistic look at issues on campus, while developing strategies to provide for student happiness and safety. The implementation of our Anti-Bully Days is a good example of a program that they have created.

So effective is the CCC’s work that it was just announced that CMS will receive Project Cornerstone’s Caring School Climate – Middle School Award in March. Being recognized by Project Cornerstone is a wonderful achievement for the school and I’m proud of Vice Principal Auger and the faculty, for making this happen.
