Happy Friday, McCabe Families!

LCAP SURVEY: If you haven’t already taken our brief LCAP Stakeholder/Community/Parent survey, it’s not too late!  We’ve extended the window of time through Friday May 5th!  Click the link below to take the survey.  We value your input!

TESTING SCHEDULE:  Testing begins next week starting with 8th Grade taking their CAST Science Test April 10-12.  Please check the dates listed below for upcoming testing weeks.  Be sure your child has plenty of sleep the night before each testing day and a good breakfast each morning.  To avoid interruptions during testing, we will not call up students to pick up lunch/homework/sports equipment/instruments during testing time.  Please schedule any doctor or dentist appointments around your child’s testing days.  It is also VERY important for students to arrive to school on time and be in the right state of mind for a day of testing!

 

CORFMAN OLYMPICS: Corfman’s Olympics will be held on April 18th.  Events will start promptly at 8:20am after attendance has been taken and continue throughout the morning.  Parents and family members are encouraged to attend!  Bring your lawn chairs, snacks, and ice chests with water/Gatorade for the big event.  Be sure to have your ID in hand if you plan to take your child with you after his/her events.  All students must be signed out through the office.  Be sure to look for the events map in next Friday’s email!

 

YEARBOOKS:  Yearbooks are available to pre-order through both school offices for $35.  Cash and checks made out to “McCabe School” will be accepted.  Yearbook Order Form 2018 Apr 2019.pdf 

 

5th GRADE: Your BizTown trip is coming up on April 16th!  Payments are due and may be turned into the Corfman office. 

 

6th GRADE: Tdap immunizations are due prior to your child starting 7th grade.  If your child has already had the booster, please bring in the yellow card from the doctor or a receipt stating the child has had the booster.  If your child has yet to get the booster, please schedule a doctor’s appointment or stop by the health department or local pharmacy to do so.  got Tdap Flyer 2019.pdf 

 

8th GRADE: Graduation pictures are right around the corner and we’re looking for a few parents to assist on Tuesday, April 16th throughout the day from 8:15am until about 2:40pm.  We’ll need some assistance with adjusting ties, fixing hair, and helping students get into graduation gowns prior to pictures.  If you’re available to help out, give Becky a call in the Corfman office at (760) 335-5200 or shoot her an email at becky.gibbs@muesd.net.  Thanks in advance for the help!
