Welcome to Cape Elementary

 A tradition of excellence since 1964!

Cape Elementary School, located in the heart of Cape Coral, was the first school built on the Cape and continues to lead in a tradition of excellence.  The school’s theme, Caring About People Everywhere, pervades all its activities.  The essence of Cape can be captured in phrases like, “small community atmosphere,” “caring people,” and “warm, friendly environment.”  All programs are aimed at educating and nurturing the whole child, while continuing to focus on high achievement and rigorous academic standards.

Our Mission:  To provide a safe and supportive learning community where every student experiences success.

The Cape Coral Police Department is pleased to announce the

12th annual "Fill the Boat" Toy Drive for the 2018 holiday season.

Cape Elementary was chosen as the Elementary School this  year! 

For one day only, Wednesday, December 19, the Cape Coral Police Department will be at Cape Elementary School from 7:20 AM to 7:55 AM collecting toys for kids in the parent drop off line.  

CCPD Officers will greet Cape kids in Santa hats and pass out candy canes along with collecting the toy donations. A Cape Coral Police Department Marine Unit boat will be on display and will serve as the drop-off point. 
To donate, purchase a new, unwrapped toy and simply drive up in the parent drop-off line and hand the toy to a Cape Coral Police Officer.   Bus students will walk out to parent pick up to drop off toy donations and get a candy cane! 
At the end of the drive, the toys will be taken to the Cape Coral Police Department where they will be distributed in association with “Children’s Network of SWFL” throughout Cape Coral in time for the holidays.
