Welcome Back

Hello Eagle families, students, and community, 
My name is Brent Dettman and I am honored to be serving El Capitan Middle School as principal. I have spent 14 years in Central Unified as a History teacher, a high school vice-principal, and now my second year as principal of El Capitan. Although we won't be back in person, please know we are here to support our Eagle students and families. The theme for El Capitan this year is "TEAMWORK." We chose this as our theme because we believe now more than ever we must all work together to ensure that our children reach their fullest potential.
El Capitan's goals are to support the social-emotional, academic, and physical needs of our students as they set and achieve their goals, and prepare for success in college, career, and community. Our teachers and staff will be working hard to provide you support as you assist your children with their learning at home. 
As we prepare for the start of school on Wednesday, August 12th, I encourage all of you to stay connected through our school and district website, social media, and through ParentSquare. Please be sure to download the ParentSquare App from the app store. ParentSquare is the number one place to get important messages and information from Central Unified and El Capitan Middle School. 
We look forward to working with you soon and being together again when it is safe to do so. Please stay safe and healthy and reach out to us if you have any questions at all. 
Sincerely, Mr. Dettman
El Capitan Middle School
