The morning of Friday, October 13th, third through eighth grade students and teachers celebrated their amazing SBAC results from the 2016-2017 school year. Students cheered for their grade level and participated in performance task spirit activities. McCabe had 13 students who earned a perfect school in Language Arts or Math. Three of those students earned perfect scores in BOTH categories!! Way to go, McCabe!!
McCabe and Corfman students and staff spent the week showering the cafeteria ladies with posters and gift of gratitude for their hard work and FABULOUS FOOD! Thank you, ladies, for all you do!!

Mrs. Gray's classroom was all a buzz as the students collaborated and worked together to bring their designs to life. Ask —> Imagine —> Plan —> Create —> Improve ~ Our little engineers did an amazing job this week! They spent the last few days learning about the engineering process of boat-building. Take a peak at pictures of the students working together in teams and testing their boats! What a success!
Mrs. Davey's class had a blast in the computer lab on October 4th as they mastered their Math skills! What an enjoyable moment to hear the students say, "This is so fun!" , "I love this!", "I don't want to stop!" and "Can we play more??"
Mrs. Gray's students kicked off Tuesday (10/3) by using Google Classroom to expand on their buoyancy and density lesson. Ideas have been shared, plans have been drawn, and building is underway! First time engineers are doing great!
Mrs. Gray's first grade class kicked off their unit testing and STEM week on October 2nd with a lesson on buoyancy and density. The students tested items to see which items would sink and which items would float. Their next challenge this week will be to build a boat!! Stay tuned!
Please see link to the October band schedule.
Mrs. LeBaron's class visited each and every class on the McCabe campus with a "kindness" challenge. They look forward to seeing the creative ways students show kindness in the weeks to come!
Wednesday, September 27th was McCabe's first professional development day. This year, students have 7 additional minimum days to allow time for administration to hold trainings and workshops for the teaching staff. As part of ICOE's Educational Services staff, Dorene Johnson assisted McCabe's teaching staff with accumulating and processing student assessment scores.
Through play and experimentation, Mrs. Leon's kinder students learn about the life of John Chapman, aka Johnny Appleseed, with Apple Jacks, apple juice, and apple sauce. Sounds like a yummy way to celebrate!!
Mr. Garcia's STEM classes "adopted" an 8th grade class affected by Hurricane Irma. Students collected and sent over 400 pounds of school supplies and backpacks to Briscoe Junior High in Richmond, TX. The donations mailed on 9/26 had perfect timing as school resumed on Monday, 9/25.
THANK YOU to our Corfman 7th grade class for their generous donations and to the packing crew who donated their lunch time to pack up the supplies for shipment. WAY TO GIVE BACK!!
The Corfman "Pride" had their first game of the volleyball and soccer season in Heber on Friday, September 22nd.
Mrs. Gray’s first grade 21st Century Learners spent the afternoon learning about computer hardware and software, discussing digital citizenship and basic functions. The students did great on their first visit to the computer lab!
