Community Building Days

Every month at Cabrillo students participate in Community Building days. Community Building days’ focus on ways to build community and often relate to our Leader in Me habit of the month. Some examples are, Anti-Bullying Pledge, Make-A-Wish letters, Leadership Symposium, STEM Day, Campus Beautification, and Field Day.

Buddy Classes

Every class at Cabrillo has a Buddy Class. Big Buddies and Little Buddies meet monthly to work on leadership skills, reading, cooperation, and relationship building.

Morning Sing

Every Friday morning our kinder-3rd grade students participate in Morning Sing. Students and staff enjoy a variety of music genres while they read and sing along.
