Our dedicated, professional and caring teachers and staff work hard to insure that your child reaches his or her full potential.
Through teamwork, high expectations, and effective resources we can make a difference in your child's education.
Mission Statement:We will become knowledgeable, caring and active citizens in our school and in our world.
STOP THE HUNGER CAMPAIGN
Parents your help is needed in combating hunger this holiday season. Capitol Elementary has partnered with The Mewelde Moore Knowledge First Foundation in our 6th Annual "Stop the Hunger" Campaign.
We are asking that students help those that are less fortunate by bringing canned goods and other non-perishable food items to school starting on Friday November 1, 2013. Students will be allowed to bring their can goods and non-perishable items until Thursday, November 21, 2013.
Any assistance that you can provide to help make this campaign as successful as last year's campaign will be deeply appreciated.
Thank you in advance for you support!

Capitol Elementary has implemented Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS), a process that focuses on improving a school’s ability to teach and support positive behavior for all students.
We have selected positively stated rules, teach behavior expectations, acknowledge appropriate behaviors, enforce well-thought out and consistent consequences, and change their focus from WHAT the misbehaviors are to WHY they are happening. The entire school community (parents, students, teachers, administration, custodian, etc.) works together using a problem-solving method to create a positive school environment.
