The McCabe staff took to the streets for their first McCabe Parade!

The McCabe staff and administration started their day early on March 31st as they began to parade through the streets of El Centro while waving and honking to the cheers of their students (and emotionally tearful parents) as they stood outside of their homes with signs and chalked driveways. Even Leo the Lion and the El Centro Police Department took park in the excitement! Thank you to our McCabe community for your support while we all continue to practice social distancing. We miss you all!! Click the heading above for pictures and videos of the festivities.
