Congratulations Jadie Muchow

Please congratulate CHS AVID senior, Jadie Muchow, on receiving the Dell Scholarship. Jadie is the only class of 2017 senior in the state of Idaho who will be receiving a $20,000 scholarship from the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, a free Dell computer and printer for college, assistance with purchasing textbooks, and access to a mentor from Dell to help her through her 4 years of college. To earn the Dell Scholarship, a student must show Grit, Potential and Ambition. Jadie is planning on using this scholarship to help her in obtaining her nursing degree specializing in pediatrics at NNU next fall. Congratulations Jadie!

Congratulations to Mr. Boston

Sean Boston of Capital High School is the awardee of a Physics Fellowship with the Khan Academy for the 2017-2018 school year. He will take a leave of absence to lead Khan Academy's efforts to expand curriculum supports for the AP Physics 1 exam. He will help Khan Academy partner with the College Board to extend free instructional tools to students around the world. Specifically, he will be creating interactive quizzes, lecture videos, and online content that students and teachers can use on a daily basis and from topic to topic as they study AP Physics 1. In the near future, all AP courses will be supported this way by Khan Academy and Sean will bring this expertise with these new tools back to the Boise School District and help other interested teachers adapt these tools for student needs.

Career Center Information

We have a few days left for seniors to turn in scholarship awards to Mrs. Cupps. Awards can be scanned and sent to her email, faxed or dropped off at the Career Center. We would like to see all awards, whether they will be accepted or not. This information will be placed in the graduation program. The deadline will be MAY 9!

Senior Job Fair:

On Monday, May 10, during lunch, there will be companies available to talk with seniors looking for summer and long term jobs. I encourage students to put together a job resume and take advantage of this opportunity to visit with the companies who are looking to hire.

The following companies will be at Capital:

Tradesmen Staffing


Western Heating and Air Conditioning


Gem State Staffing

Idaho Food Bank (summer jobs)

Kelly Services

Mrs. Cupps is currently going into senior English classes to complete the Senior Graduation Survey. This survey will have students update their Naviance college list and report where the students are planning to attend college and where they want their final transcript sent. Students not attending college need to complete the survey, as well, as we would like to know their post-graduation plans. If a senior does not have an English class, I will pull them from another class to complete the survey.

Final transcripts will begin going out to colleges around the first part of June.

Our registrar, who handles transcripts, will be at Capital until June 21 and will return August 1. So, know that if transcripts have not been requested by June 21, you will not have the opportunity to send them out until August 1.


There’s still time to apply to colleges. BSU application deadline is May 15. CWI has a Fall deadline of August 4th but financial aid priority deadline is July 10th.

Mrs. Cupps will be out of the office May 16-19. As President-Elect of PNACAC (Pacific Northwest Association of College Admission Counseling), I will be running the show at the PNACAC Conference on the Boise State campus. I will try to read emails but it will be a very busy time for me. If there is an emergency, please contact the counseling office and they should be able to assist you. I will be back in the office May 22. Thank you for your patience.

As always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me!

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.

Fanisee Bias: Project - Advocacy

Fanisee’s Advocacy project was gender acceptance. As president of the GSA group, she wanted to make sure that all students had the availability to use the restrooms and feel safe. Her goal was to have a gender neutral restroom where males and females can use the same location. Presently, the nurse’s office has a restroom that is open to all students. The win for Fanisee’s project was that a gender neutral sign will be placed in front of the nurse’s restroom.

Kacie Holloway, Madison Link and Taylor Nielson - Chapter Service Project Display
