8th Grade Graduation Gowns

Class of 2016.jpg

  • Gowns will be distributed this Thursday (June 2) during 6th period. Should you choose to purchase a gown, Jostens will be here selling graduation gowns from 1:30 – 3:00 P.M.
  • At that time they will collect $20 CASH for the cost of the gown. No other form of payment will be accepted.
  • This will be the only day that gowns can be purchased. These are the same gowns that have been worn over the past few years, so if a family member or friend still has one, your child can certainly use it.
  • Please let the bookkeeper know whether or not you need a loaner gown to wear for the graduation ceremony. The loaner gowns will be available during the gown sales. The loaner gown must be returned immediately following the graduation ceremony.

Much Deserved Recognition -- Message from Principal Garber

CCC photo.jpg


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.

Although some schools are already at capacity, this policy allows parents who reside within the boundaries of the district to request enrollment of their children at "any District school which may have space available for additional students."
