Welcome to Capac Elementary School
To educate and nurture every child.
All children can learn.
Every child's learning is dependent on having his/her physical, emotional, social, and academic needs met.
It is our responsibility to provide an environment conducive to learning so that a strong educational foundation is established for every child.
IMPORTANT - SCHOOL CALENDAR CHANGE
Due to the excessive number of snow days we had during the 2012-13 school year, it will be necessary to extend the school year one day to meet state attendance requirements:
JUNE 12, 2013 - FULL DAY OF CLASSES FOR ALL STUDENTS
JUNE 13, 2013 - 1/2 DAY FOR ALL STUDENTS, 1/2 DAY TEACHER RECORDS PM
Your cooperation in making sure your children attend school on June 13, 2013 will be greatly appreciated.

St. Clair County Health Department (SCCHD) would like to remind parents that flu season is here! On January 4th, 2013 influenza became widespread throughout Michigan. Locally, St. Clair County continues to see increases in flu cases. SCCHD is asking schools, parents and students to become "flu fighters" and help beat the flu this season. Helpful prevention tips include:
Dr. Annette Mercatante, MD, MPH
Medical Health Officer
Be aware of common flu symptoms
The flu usually starts suddenly and may include these symtoms:
Box Tops and Labels for Education
With some extra help this week from CES parents and children and friends of CES, we have gone over the top with our box top/labels collections. We collected $2014.90 in boxtops and 25,880 points of labels for education points. What a great job by all of you.
Please continue to collect boxtops and labels. Our goal for this school year is $5000 and 70000 points in labels. A motivational goal is posted across from the office. We are going to try and collect $2000 in boxtops and 30000 points by spring break and the remainder by the closing of the school year.
The labels for education usually pays for our
Physical education equipment for the next year and the box top monies goes toward student needs.
Please remember to network with relatives, friends, bus drivers and community to support this program. With all of us working together, WE CAN MEET THIS GOAL.
