ESSA SURVEY

One of the pieces of Idaho’s new school accountability system is a parent survey. This survey asks for your input on several topics to help measure how our schools are doing in meeting your needs.


To access the survey, visit https://eprovesurveys.advanc-ed.org/surveys/#/action/184180/p30811

Then pick your student’s school from the drop-down menu. Please complete a survey for each school your child attends.


The survey should take 5-10 minutes to complete and your responses are anonymous. You can submit your survey up through April 1, 2022.


We will use these survey responses to identify opportunities to maximize satisfaction, engagement, and communication. Additionally, the state will report the results and the number of responses on Idaho’s new school report card (https://idahoschools.org/).


Thank you for participating in the survey. If you have any questions, please contact your school’s Principal.


Sincerely,


Derek Gardner

MAKE-A-WISH FOR SAM

Capital and our community raised $11,822 for the Make-A-Wish foundation! The people from Make-A-Wish have told me we are the number one school in the state of Idaho to raise this much from a single event! We are the "gold" standard, and they are encouraging other schools to look at the things we are doing at Capital. Very cool!


Sam and his family also send their thanks. They were blown away by our student body at the assembly and our fundraising efforts. It was really special, and that's because of everyone here at Capital. THANK YOU for helping make this happen! I've attached some pictures of Sam from his visit this week, and a picture of him using his new laptop (thank you Math, Key Club, and ELA).

CAPITAL GRADUATION DATE

Capital Graduation date will be May 23rd at ExtraMile Arena, 7:00 pm

Attention Parents & Students, the student drop off zone is in the East Parking lot.


Parents and Students will no longer be able to drop off/pickup students at the front of the School, due to continued issues with buses not being able to gain access to the bus pickup/drop off zone. Please help keep the drop off area running smoothly by pulling all the way up to the student entrance double doors near the south end of the east student parking lot.

Thank you for all your help with this matter
