If a senior does not report for practice, it is assumed that they will not participate in the evening commencement exercises, and their name will be removed from the walk line.

Graduates are to report to Taco Bell arena at 6:15pm for final instructions and to line up for the processional.
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:
Western Heating and Air Conditioning
Gem State Staffing
Idaho Food Bank (summer jobs)
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!

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.
FCCLA Student Leadership Projects
Student Leadership Projects, FCCLA at Capital HS
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
Kacie, Maddi and Taylor held a school wide holiday SOCK drive for the homeless and delivered sock to the Corpus Christi House in January.

Ebony and Taimone have scheduled a major guest speaker to visit FCS and Health classes in early May. They also presented to classrooms about driving non-distracted.
