• Welcome to Cabrillo Elementary

    Thank you for your continued support!

  • Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year!  I hope the Cabrillo community enjoyed opportunities to spend quality time with friends and family during the summer break.  It was a busy summer for my wife Stephanie and I as we committed ourselves to growing as professionals as well as committing to our local community and family. Stephanie is a teacher at Mattos and a bedrock member of the Glenmoor community where she has been coaching the Glenmoor Stingrays swim team for the past 19 years. We have three children - my 16-year old son Sam and Stephanie’s daughters Sophie (13) and Sarah (10).

    I am very excited to return to the Cabrillo community, now serving as your child’s Principal.  My door is  open to you, so please feel free to pop in any time.  As I enter my 31st year at Fremont USD - 28 of those years as a teacher - I can ensure you from experience that we have an exceptional teaching staff committed to your child’s education. The students at Cabrillo receive an excellent education where teachers maximize learning opportunities, ensure personal development, and give your child opportunities to take risks that foster greater independence.

    Our school secretary Mrs. Yan, attendance clerk Mrs. Sugiura, and I are here to be of service to you. Welcome to a great new day at Cabrillo!
