Parent Email for Week of February 10, 2020

“Whatever you are, be a good one.”  ~ Abraham Lincoln

Happy Friday, McCabe Families!  As we plan for the upcoming 3-day weekend, let’s do our best to exemplify the character of Abraham Lincoln.  Yet far from perfect, he was a model of virtue and honesty with a never-ending quest to learn, faced his fears to overcome defeat and treated others with compassion, kindness, and respect.  As the famed African American spokesman W.E.B. DuBois said in 1922 regarding Lincoln: “I love him not because he was perfect but because he was not and yet triumphed.”   

 LUNCH ON THE LAWN for 1st & 8th GRADE: Please join your 1st or 8th grade child for lunch on February 12, 2020! 

  • 1st grade from 11:15am-12:05pm

    DROPPED-OFF LUNCHES:  If your child is expecting you to drop off his/her fast food or sack lunch, please remind your child to check the office on the way to the cafeteria.

Simply shoot a quick email to our attendance clerk, Faviola James, at with the information listed below:

  1. Child’s name
  2. Child’s grade/teacher

Or, if it’s easier to call from your car, dial (760) 335-5205 and leave a message.  It’s just that simple!
