Busy Summer Leads to Start of a Promising New School Year
Dear Capac Schools Residents:
Summer break was a busy place around Capac Community Schools. Some of our students joined us for summer school at the elementary, middle, and high schools. They worked hard strengthening their academic skills. They made great progress. The results of their hard work will be evident this school year. I also would like to thank the parents for their commitment to our summer school programs.
All buildings have seen improvements this summer. Among them:
• Roofs at the elementary, middle, and high schools.
• New HVAC units at the high school.
• A new ceiling in the high school cafeteria.
• A modified and improved elementary entrance.
• Remodeled varsity and junior-varsity locker rooms at the high school.
The groundbreaking ceremony for the cafetorium/performing arts room at the elementary was held on July 17th and construction is in full swing.
Your bond dollars have helped in other areas as well. Our technology department has completed interactive projector upgrades across the district to enhance instruction. A new school bus is due to arrive this month and should be ready for the first day of school. Because of your support of the 2013 bond, we are able to improve and make Capac Community Schools an even better place for your children to learn and grow.
We had several staff members who retired or resigned at the end of the school year. We wish those that left us well and look forward to working with some new staff members. We have recalled a teacher to cover an opening at the elementary in first grade and hired a new principal for the high school. We are in the midst of completing the hiring of a part-time music teacher for the elementary school and a Chemistry/STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) teacher for the middle and high schools.
As part of our district commitment to improve curriculum, our calendar has been improved to include only two half-days for the 2014-2015 school year, giving our students the benefits of the added full days in the classroom.
It's been a busy summer, but we are ready for a great start to this new school year and all the exciting things happening at Capac Community Schools.
