Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,
Welcome to Cabrillo High Schools 2015-16 school year. We hope your summer is going well and you are keeping busy either helping with chores around the house, maybe working at a job or just having fun. Whatever it is you are doing, we look forward to seeing you during registration in August. If this is going to be your first year at Cabrillo, we welcome you. Our ninth grade staff has been working hard to prepare for your arrival to ensure you have a great high school experience.
There have been some changes over the summer to report. We have a new co-principal, as Mr. Vega has been moved to Millikan High School. We welcome Cheryl Cornejo, former principal at Lakewood High School for the last 7 years. She has been in LBUSD for over 20 years and is dedicated to the students and parents in Long Beach. Her knowledge of curriculum and instruction will assist Cabrillo teachers in preparing students for life after high school.
This year we look forward to increasing the number of students enrolling in Advance Placement and completing A-G classes. There will be many opportunities for students to receive support and guidance to be successful in this coursework through the Counseling Center, AVID program, AP tutorials, and other school-wide support programs. The Cabrillo Promise is to have all students complete at least one Honors or Advanced Placement class prior to graduation.
Our Smaller Learning Communities or Career Pathways are thriving. Pathway teachers have been working diligently over the summer to provide more career exposure and opportunities for students. Some of our CAL-J teachers participated in an externship this summer and gained valuable knowledge to share with students. Our CAL-J students will be the first to use the new Cabrillo Courtroom this year. We look forward to watching our students participate in teen court and inviting you to come see court in action. Likewise, our other academic teachers have put in a lot of time and effort into developing Common Core lessons in preparation for the spring SBAC testing.
The campus has been alive this summer with athletics, band, cheer, NJROTC, and other student activities. The students are working hard to prepare for the school year. We hope to have a lot of success in our future competitions.
Parents, please help us to accomplish our goals by giving us your support. It is extremely important that our students are here on time, attend every day, abide by the dress code, exemplify integrity and respect, and come prepared to learn. A strong parent partnership is vital for the success of our students. Please join the PTSA, Booster Clubs, and become active visitors on our campus. Our Parent Center is open daily, offers a variety of parent oriented classes and can always use your support. We can succeed only with your help! Jaguar Pride!
Elio R. Mendoza, Ed.D. - Co-Principal
Cheryl A. Cornejo - Co-Principal
