Captree Elementary School

Name:Captree Elementary School

Brief Description of the Site:
Captree Elementary School, located in West Islip, NY, houses grades K-5. This attractive Web site provides a variety of information for parents, running the gamut from the school's Code of Conduct, to bus schedules, to highlights of activities from throughout the school year.

How to use the site:
Many schools post photos of important activities, but Captree's Photo Album is extremely well organized. Clicking on the Photo Album link on the Home page takes you to a page where you can select a month and view photos of events from just that month. This format makes it much easier for returning visitors to find that special photo from a specific time of year. The teachers' welcome back messages currently posted in the Classrooms section, are also a nice touch.
