6th Grade Fun Day


Dear Parents and Guardians,

As the school year comes to a close, the 6th grade teachers are planning our annual 6th Grade Fun Day for Thursday, June 4th.  For students who are eligible (no cafeteria and/or lunch fines, no suspensions or other disciplinary restrictions), festivities will take place during the day, from 9:00am to 1:26pm, when students are released. A pizza lunch will be served to all students, and other snacks will be available throughout the day.


Parents who wish to donate to help cover the cost of lunch and snacks may do so by attaching their donation of $_______(cash) to this form and have your student give it to their first period teacher by Tuesday, June 2nd. If possible, we suggest a donation of $5, though any amount is welcome.  We understand finances are tight for many families, and all students, regardless of whether their family contributes, will receive lunch.


We would also love to have parent volunteers to help us conduct activities on Fun Day.  If you are interested in helping, you must :

  • Fill out a volunteer form and provide evidence of a TB test and your driver’s license.  Volunteer forms can be picked up in the Cabrillo office from the secretary
  • Forms must be turned back into the office by Friday, May 29th, in order to allow processing time for background checks.  
  • If you have already been approved to volunteer at another school in the district, please let the secretary know so she can confirm your approval. 
  • Please also contact Molly Wright at 408.423.3771 or (or you can email her via SchoolLoop) and let her know the hours you are willing to help.


We look forward to an exciting Fun Day!

We taught 2600+ students Hands Only CPR/AED this year.

American Heart Association and ROSS Clothing Stores donated curriculum kits to Santa Clara Unified School District so we can teach our students how to Save A Life. All 7th grade students district-wide in their Physical Education classes learned Hands Only CPR, where the AEDs are located and how to use them. Students in 11th grade go through a more detailed two day orientation on Hands Only CPR and AED.

For more info please download the CPR Flyer!

Principal's Message

After teaching for a year at Buchser Middle School and four years at Bowers Elementary School, I crossed Saratoga Creek and arrived at Cabrillo Middle School (CMS), where I’ve spent the last twenty-one years. Now, sporting white whiskers, a pretty good Wiffle curve, a prodigious collection of CMS sweatshirts and an unwavering attachment to this school community, I consider myself fortunate to be part of the eighty-four people who make-up the CMS faculty and staff.
In January, we were treated to a performance of The Goon Show, our school play and another wonderful Respect, Responsibility and Integrity (RRI) Day. In the months to follow, the eighth graders will go on a field trip to San Jose State University (3-18/19), the Butler Carnival will come to CMS (4-24/25/26), we’ll have SBAC (Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium) testing for the second time (beginning 4-19), we’ll recruit the second class of the 49ers STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) Leadership Institute, we’ll have Open House (4-2) and we’ll have another festive Multi-Cultural Day (3-18).
The second semester at CMS will be packed with activity and amazing learning experiences. Encourage your children to get involved in as much as they can. The more they throw themselves into school, the more they’ll get out of it.  I am lucky to have found my place here and I want your children to feel the same way.

49ers STEM Leadership Academy Logo-RGB.jpg

The 49ers STEM

Leadership Institute Comes to Cabrillo


When I’m showing people around Cabrillo Middle School (CMS) for the first time, I try not to boast too much about the solidarity of the staff, the beautifully remodeled campus, the highest test scores in the school’s history or the six-year WASC Accreditation (Western Association of Schools and Colleges), but sometimes I slip and brag a little.


Apparently, some of my immodesty drifted toward Levi’s Stadium, where the 49ers discussed our accomplishments with one of their sponsors, Chevron. These two corporate giants got together with the Silicon Valley Education Foundation (SVEF) and the Santa Clara Unified School District (SCUSD) and decided that CMS was the perfect location for the creation of the 49ers STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) Leadership Institute.


Sixty Students from the SCUSD will be selected every year to participate in the Institute. This six-year program will inspire and prepare students with high academic potential to pursue STEM majors at top-tier universities and become future leaders in their fields. In addition to enriched math and science instruction, students have regular access to the Chevron STEMZone, a tech lab equipped with a laser cutter, 3D printers and other fabrication tools. They also participate in STEM events and challenges, and apply their knowledge to solve problems in their community. As the school year progresses, all CMS students will have the opportunity to access this amazing facility.


The 49ers STEM Leadership Institute was built on CMS’s foundation of academic success, acceptance of diversity, a warm nurturing environment and playfulness. I think that if Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo was still alive, he’d dock his ship the San Salvador off the coast, make his way to CMS by land and spend the day playing ball with the UWOC-PL (United Wifflers Of Cabrillo – Pavement League).
