The Foundation was proud to provide prizes for staff as CGPS welcomed employees back hosting its annual Opening Day at Kinder Hall on the Cape Central High campus. This year's theme was Willy Wonka with Dr. Glass, the district's superintendent, dressed as the main character. The Oompa Loompas, Veruca Salt and Augustus Gloop were all in on the fun! Things got a little sticky when the games kicked off, which included a race to feed Augustus the most items dipped in chocolate syrup! Participants won cash, gift cards and other items. This year's event featured Dr. Ed Leoni as the guest speaker and wrapped up with a staff karaoke contest. It was a fun day and we are ready for an awesome year with our students!
BIG NEWS, TIGER FAMILY!

Congratulations, Coach Powell! We are so proud of you!
Thank you to the PORCH for donating to the Cape Public Schools Foundation to help sponsor our girls mentoring at Cape Central High School and Terry W. Kitchen Central Junior High.
Every job within our school district is crucial to the health and success of our students. Without cafeteria staff, we cannot feed our children.
As you likely know, a number of our students depend on the school to provide two nutritious meals a day because their home situation does not provide this for them.
Some of our students only eat while they are at school.
Let that sink in.
If you are looking for a meaningful way to give back, please consider applying to work in one of our cafeterias. YOU WILL BE MAKING A DIFFERENCE!
We need your help!
