Rotary Club Student of the Month (March)

Congrats to Sara Alis! She was the Downtown Rotary Club Student of the Month for March. She attend the award ceremony with parents and Mr. Vuturo on Thursday, March 16th.

At Capital High, we are continually impressed by her high level of involvement and service to her community through the time she donates to local food and clothing banks. Also, she is a valued member of the youth supporting the Special Olympics through her dedication to special needs children playing basketball. Through the Summer of Hope program Sara gathered gift cards to help a young refugee family. During her time in high school, Sara has been a competitive athlete in three sports while taking on rigorous classes. It is in both school and extra-curricular activities that Sara impresses us with her gift to lead other students, solve problems and serve to other in need.

Youth Government

Youth Government goes to the state session this month. Capital is led by this year's Idaho Youth Governor Rhone Grajcar and Appellate Judge Connor Lynch, who were elected at the regional convention. Students have written bills to debate and have prepared themselves to serve as senators, representatives, lobbyists, press staff and other positions they will represent at the Statehouse and Idaho Supreme Court Building.



Parents please be aware of the two phone lines for the attendance office.

854-4493-This is the phone line to leave student absences ONLY.

854-4494-This is the PTL line for students who need permits to leave ONLY, as these are time sensitive they are retrieved as soon as the message is left on the voice mail to deliver to your student as soon as possible.

Please help our student assistants that deliver these PTL’S by giving them plenty of time to get these permits to your students. One hour’s notice is much appreciated!

Remember: Parent phone calls cannot excuse a tardy, only medical notes or an official appointment notice will excuse a tardy.

Add colleges that you have applied to, delete ones you choose not to apply to, and enter the decision (accepted/denied) if you have had a decision.

Golden Eagle Booster Club

The Golden Eagle Booster Club is enrolled in Fred Meyer's Community Rewards Program. Family and friends of Capital High School can support our fundraising efforts by linking their Fred Meyer Rewards Card to the booster club’s account (NPO # 90095) at The booster club will receive a donation when you shop using your Rewards Card, and you will still earn your rewards points, fuel points, and rebates.

We currently have only five households that have re-linked to our account.

The next meeting of the Golden Eagle Booster Club will be held on Monday, April 24, at 7:00 p.m., in the school cafeteria. We will review our 2016-2017 year and start planning our activities for next year. We gave over $8,000 in grants, scholarships, and spirit wear to our school and students this year. If you are interested in being involved with the booster club or want to find out more about it, please attend the meeting or send an email to
