Kinder students wandered the McCabe campus on Thursday, November 9th in a desperate search for the Gingerbread Man! He ran into the office, through the halls, and into the cafeteria before the children found him hiding in their classrooms!
A new city called Greenville was being established. The city wanted to get all of their energy from renewable energy, specifically wind energy. Thus, companies (student teams) had to create a functional windmill with a budget of $500.00. As such, students got to work on STEM and financial literacy at the same time. After windmills were created, they had to develop an advertisement as well. Then, they had to present their product to the rest of their peers and staff members. Finally, we tested their windmills with fans. SUCCESS!!
With the help of our Student Council members, McCabe and Corfman students took part in their annual bus evacuation drill to help prepare them in the event of a bus emergency. Safety is ALWAYS a priority at McCabe!!
On October 31st, Mrs. LeBaron's class did a math and literacy pumpkin project...who knew learning could be this much fun! The students described the pumpkins' inside and outside, compared and contrasted each other's pumpkins, and drew diagrams of our pumpkins. Then we estimated, counted, and rounded ALL the seeds. A messy, yet fun project indeed!
Mrs. Gray’s class spent the afternoon doing Halloween activities like Monster Mash Hands, Pumpkin’ Chunkin’ Catapults, Spooky Ghosts and Goblins States of Matter experimenting and mummifying ourselves.
Thanks to our amazing PTO ladies and parents, all of their hard work paid off and provided a VERY fun and successful Halloween Carnival!

Under the direction of Mrs. Mair and Mr. Brown, McCabe's Student Council President Mehar Singh and her team amped up the excitement with music and dancing as they greeted parents and students in the morning and afternoon car lines on Wednesday, October 18th. The students collected spare change in support of Children's Hospital. The funds collected will help Imperial Valley parents and children with expenses incurred while their child undergoes medical assistance. Even Mrs. Partida got in on the action!!
The morning of Friday, October 13th, third through eighth grade students and teachers celebrated their amazing SBAC results from the 2016-2017 school year.
