Reaching Out to Help Our Community
Over the next few weeks, there will several opportunities to help people in our community.
The Cape Coral Police Department (CCPD)’s Holiday Toy Drive:
This event is sponsored by the Cape Coral Police Department. Officers are partnering with the staff, faculty, students, and parents of Oasis Elementary School and Oasis Middle School to collect new, unwrapped toy donations for The Children’s Network of SWFL.
This year’s event will be held on Tuesday, December 10, before school at the parent drop-off line at Oasis Elementary School and Oasis Middle School. Send in a new, unwrapped toy with your child to school on Tuesday, December 10. Cape Coral Police Officers will be greeting students that morning at the parent drop-off line to collect the donations. For more information, read this flyer.

Please utilize this wonderful resource and CHECK OUT and RETURN often.
The K-2 Rainbow Reading Program is in full swing now. All students received the red reading log at the beginning of the school year. As you and your child read the books listed on the sheet and it is returned during their library visit, they will spin for a prize and receive the next colored log.
The goal is for students to read through the colors of a rainbow and reach "PURPLE". Then they will join us during our Purple People Party in May. During this party, students will wear purple, and eat purple foods, play games, and enjoy time with other readers.
If you need another red sheet, please send an email and include the student and his or her teacher's name to the request. Rhonda.Gamboa@CapeCharterSchools.org This is a fun time for your child to explore books in varying genres from your home and public library. Also, they can search for books in the school library during their Specials visit.
Thank you for supporting your child's education.

The app, which is available for download on Apple and Android mobile devices, is critical to ensuring all Florida schools are safe environments where students and educators can experience and share the joy of learning without fear. FortifyFL is a suspicious activity reporting tool that allows you to instantly relay information to appropriate law enforcement agencies and school officials.
The Florida Legislature directed this tool’s development in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act. For more information visit: https://getfortifyfl.com/
