DonorsChoose - Yoga Supplies

Liz House has a project on DonorsChoose to acquire yoga supplies to bring yoga classes to students here at Capital for years to come. Considering the rising rates of anxiety and depression among youth and the proven benefits a mindfulness practice such as yoga has on mental health, she feels compelled to freely donate her time and energy to create the content of the classes, teach, and organize. These classes will be offered for free and whenever possible during the school day. She is a certified yoga teacher with more than 30 years of yoga practice. All she needs is a little help with supplies. Email [email protected] with questions. Donations of any amount are appreciated. Thank you!

Health Room Update

  • The Student health Information form for the 2023-2024 school year is available on Skyward to fill out. If you could fill it out before May 15 so that we have time to make Health plans for next year that would be great. We like to have a new form each year in case health conditions have changed since the last time we had a form filled out.

Students with severe allergies, diabetes, asthma, or seizures must have an Emergency Care Plan and physician's orders on file.
