Parent Workshop - District 62 is offering a workshop for parents on the subject of “Co-parenting Children of Separated or Divorced Parents.” This event will take place at the Early Learning Center on Monday, February 6 from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. Click here to view the flyer and RSVP information.
Pick-Up Reminders - Please be courteous to other parents and the Chippewa staff when picking up your child after school. We ask that you only park in legal parking spaces and not block parked cars by double parking. Not following these routines creates a bottleneck in the parking lot and can create unsafe situations for our students. We really appreciate your cooperation in this matter.
Parents Entering School - We strive to keep the safest school possible for all our students and staff. All of the doors remain locked at all times and we constantly remind students that they are never to let anyone inside the building. We ask that any time you come to Cumberland, you go directly to the main office. We have recently had parents try to come into the building at arrival or dismissal times through doors that students are entering or leaving. Even before and after school, we have programs taking place in the building and still need all visitors to come to the main office. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter.
Sleepover Day - As part of our PBIS (Positive Behaviors Interventions and Supports) program, we are always looking for fun ways for the students to "spend" their Paw Prints. On Friday, February 17 the children can "pay" their teacher 10 Paw Prints to be able to wear their pajamas and bring a favorite stuffed animal to school.
PTO Valentine's Dance - We hope you can join the PTO for a Family Valentine's Dance on Friday, February 10 at 6:00 p.m. There will be fun music and dancing for the whole family. Click here to view the Valentine's Dance flyer and upcoming PTO events that came in backpacks yesterday.
