A Season of Splendor

Principal Thornley’s Monthly Newsletter

Good Morning and Happy Sunday Cabrillo Families,
Great News at Cabrillo!
Please join me in congratulating Mrs. Christy Taylor, FUSD’s 2022 Teacher of the Year! Mrs. Taylor has worked in FUSD since 2009, and is currently a kindergarten teacher at Cabrillo Elementary. She is one of the most qualified teachers I know and incredibly gracious with her knowledge. Her passion for education inspires me to do better every day as an administrator. Mrs. Taylor will represent FUSD at the Alameda County Teacher of the Year Awards and be considered for county-level honors, and then possibly state recognition.

Soccer Season
Soccer Season is underway! The boys and girls teams have played two matches this season. The Cabrillo boys and girls will provide a wonderful afternoon of sporting excitement on Wednesday and Thursday this week starting at 3:30. The boys will start at 3:30 followed by the girls at 4:30 on both days. Come join your fellow community members on the soccer pitch at Cabrillo. Bring a lawn chair and enjoy the excitement. Follow the progress of both teams on the Cabrillo website. Upcoming games:

  • 4/13        Weibel @ Cabrillo
  • 4/14        Forest Park @ Cabrillo
  • 5/23        Cabrillo @ Parkmont
  • 5/25        Cabrillo @ Warwick

Smarter Balanced Parent Information Night
I will be holding a Smarter Balanced Parent Information Night on Wednesday, April 13th at 6:00 in the Cove following the soccer match. Families with students in grades 3-6 are encouraged to attend. The Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA) is an annual measure of student growth in English language arts and mathematics typically administered in Spring. Due to the pandemic, the last administration of the SBA in Fremont was 3-years ago. Please come on Wednesday and learn how you can help your student at home prepare for this high stakes test.

Thursdays Health Opportunities at Cabrillo
Cabrillo is very happy to announce that our partnership with BACH has expanded to dental health. Thursdays will not only feature Bay Area Community Health’s mobile clinic; Cabrillo will also host the C.H.O.M.P. mobile, BACH’s Comprehensive Health and Oral Mobile Project providing dental health services on site at Cabrillo! 

Spring Break Test Kits
Fremont USD schools will be on Spring Break starting Friday, April 15th through Sunday, April 24th with school resuming on Monday, April 25th. As we have seen at the Gridiron event in Washington DC, the spread of covid at large events is still occurring. We will be sending home COVID-19 test kits to every child and staff member at Cabrillo before Spring Break.

Vaccination Events 
BACH and Cabrillo are partnering for monthly vaccination events through June. The upcoming dates are listed below:

  • Wednesday, April 27th (2:00 - 6:00)
  • Wednesday, May 18th (2:00 - 6:00)
  • Wednesday, June 8 (2:00 - 6:00)
