A Note From Mrs. Garrison

Our Boosterthon Fundraiser kicks off on Wednesday! In this incredible, science-infused character theme, your students will help a team of brainy kids solve problems using a super-lab hidden inside a school. While they're teaming up with the MindSpark Kids to solve mysteries, your child will learn five 21st-century character traits that will help strengthen themselves and our world: Citizenship, growth mindset, zest, integrity, and teamwork. Follow this link, https://boosterthon.com/, to learn more or make a pledge. Money raised helps to fund technology and field trips.

Mark your calendar to join us for the Fun Run on February 15. Click on the link to volunteer!

Crosswalk safety

It has come to our attention that some parents have been dropping off children in Capstone in the street and crosswalk behind the school. For the safety of everyone, please do not drop your child off in the crosswalk. Plan enough time in the morning to drive through the carline.
