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.


Trunk or Treat!                                                             

Cape Elementary families are invited to this fun and FREE event on Friday, October 26th from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. where you can bring your kids in their best costumes to enjoy an evening of decorated trunks and treats! Children walk by car trunks decorated with themes and games and receive treats. Enjoy family fun in a safe, non-scary environment with some of the most creative trunks around... Adding to the fun, hotdogs, pizza, soda, popcorn and ice cream are available for purchase.

Thousands of pieces of candy are needed for this free event, and we need your donations to make it happen! Bring in individually-wrapped bags of candy to the office before October 26.

We need volunteers to host trunks, serve food and help out on the day of the event. Email NicoleOsterholm at to sign up. Service hours are available for students who volunteer.
