Making a Difference
Check out many of the ways PTA makes a difference at Cabrillo.
Arts and DanceHands on Art is a program developed and sponsored by PTA that enables parent volunteers to come into the classroom to teach an art lesson. Students loved creating their self-portrait masterpieces this year!
PTA also funds multi-week dance lessons with Mrs. Dawn Dyson, giving all students an opportunity to learn a variety of folk dances from around the world.
Instructional SupportRAZ-Kids is an award-winning teaching product that provides comprehensive leveled e-reading resources for Cabrillo students.
Scholastic Classroom subscriptions combine engaging print magazines with powerful digital resources to build our students’ knowledge, skills and excitement in any learning environment.
Additionally, PTA is proud to provide library books, P.E. equipment, and teacher reimbursements for classroom materials.
Family NightsPTA supports Cabrillo’s family enrichment events, including Literacy Night, CGI Math Night, Art Night, and Multi-Cultural Night.
And Family Movie Night is always a big hit! Grab your blankets and chairs for a movie under the stars, brought to you by PTA.
Field Trips and AssembliesGrade-level field trips to the California Science Center, LA Natural History Museum, and Centennial Farms (and bus transportation) provide an amazing enrichment opportunity that many of our students wouldn’t otherwise have.
School-wide assemblies from the Performing Arts Center of Los Angeles, Imagination Machine, the Art of Puppets and Marionettes, and Traveling Animals, among others, are also funded by PTA.
Student RecognitionPTA is proud to support Cabrillo’s monthly Student Success program by providing a book to every award recipient. Student Success is an integral part of Cabrillo’s Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS).
PTA also provides funding for grade-specific recognition events including the second grade picnic and yearbook as well as caps for Kindergarten graduation.
Community GivingCabrillo gives! PTA coordinates an annual giving drive to build community and support families in need, while introducing students to philanthropy.
PTA also coordinates Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week to recognize the wonderful work of all those at Cabrillo who help our children thrive.
