Message from Ms. Osterholm and Mrs. Sund

Dear Cape Families,

Happy New Year! We would like to extend best wishes to all of our Cape students, staff and families for a happy and healthy new year.

We hope each of you had a restful and meaningful time with your family and friends during the winter break.

January is always about fresh beginnings and positive change. We love the promise of the New Year and all the possibilities that it offers for our children here at Cape Elementary. We are ready to make 2022 a year filled with success through hard work and dedication by providing students with daily opportunities to learn and grow. We are in this together – administrators, teachers, support staff, students and families. Thank you for partnering with us in this venture!

January is a busy month for our school. Please take a look at the school calendar in this newsletter, in the back of your child’s planner, or on our website. We especially look forward to seeing our students at the 2nd quarter SOAR Celebration on January 14. We also have our 4th Annual PTO Fun Run on January 27 and 28.

Cape Elementary continues to communicate using School Messenger, Peach Jar and FOCUS for grades, events and emergencies. Please make sure that we have your correct phone number and email address. We send automated messages about once a week via phone and email. If you are not receiving messages, please contact the office at Cape Elementary to confirm the information that we have on file.

Cape is a special place. We are thankful for our students, staff and parents. Let’s make 2022 the best year ever! Please call us if you have any questions or concerns. We are happy to assist in any way that we can.

PTO News!

Hello everyone! Happy New Year! We hope you had a wonderful holiday season with your families and friends.

Thank you to all who attended our 4th Annual Breakfast with Santa event at Applebee's! This was our largest breakfast yet with 245 tickets sold. Our teachers, staff and PTO volunteers enjoyed serving you!

Our 2021 Holiday Shoppe was a huge success! The students missed having the shoppe last year and loved shopping for their family and friends! Thank you to everyone who volunteered! Whether it was decorating, helping children shop, gift wrapping, or helping clean up, we could not have done it without you! We've been hard at work over break shopping to replenish our inventory for next year.

Our 4th Annual Fun Run Fundraiser begins January 18th - February 4th. We'll be raising funds to replace the sunshade for the Kaboom Playground that was replaced last year. The Fun Run will be held on Thursday, January 27th & Friday, January 28th during Specials time. Be on the lookout for more information about donations, pledging money for your student when they run, and volunteering for the event.

Upcoming Events:

Fun Run Jan. 27th & 28th
