Parents of 5th Graders - You are cordially invited to attend a short assembly that our 5th graders will be presenting on Tuesday, June 4th at 2:30 p.m. The theme will be "Cumberland Memories." Immediately following, at approximately 3:00, we will have our traditional "5th Grade Clap Out Ceremony" where our entire school will say goodbye to the 5th graders with applause and well wishes through the halls.
Report Card Recognitions - We will once again be recognizing our students who have demonstrated good attendance and behavior during the third trimester. Children with no more than three absences and two tardies, and those who did not receive a behavior referral for the entire third trimester will be recognized. These students will be receiving a certificate and paw print trinket in their report card for each criteria met. We would like to send a special "thank you" to these students who are working so hard to help us reach our goal of lowering absenteeism and reducing misbehaviors during the school day!
