  • April 24th, 2017 - Principal’s Message




    I hope you are all doing well as we near the month of May. There are many events happening, so please stay informed through your classroom news and/or our website.


    This week is Volunteer Appreciation week. A special thank you goes out to all of you! Your support of our students, staff, and school in general, is greatly appreciated. We could not do what we do without all of you volunteers and the help you provide!


    This coming Friday is our Dash for Dollars run. All students will participate according to the schedule. The dollars raised in this fundraising event, will provide our students with many opportunities to participate in additional Arts activities. This year we’ve had numerous Arts assemblies and residencies that have greatly added to our program here at Capitol Hill. We sincerely thank you for your generous support.


    We are just about done with the Language Arts portion of State Testing. In May, students will begin the math portion of State Testing.


    I encourage you to mark your calendars so that you don’t miss the Earthquake Emergency Preparedness information night on Wednesday, May 3rd, presented by Mercy Corp.


    Again, I encourage you to stay informed through the website and PTA FishTales, to stay abreast of ongoing events.


    Finally, I want to let you know that I am out of town, due to urgent family business in Florida. I have great confidence in our Capitol Hill staff and know that they will “keep things going” as usual.  We also have the support of the district. A retired principal, Allison Couch, will be at Capitol Hill several days this week, during my absence. Please know that Heidi and I communicate regularly and that you can see her with questions or concerns.


    Thank you for your continued support,

    Principal Williams
