Read to Succeed Deadline - Next Friday, February 28th is the final day for students to complete the 6 hour reading requirement for the Read to Succeed program. Students who complete the program will receive a complimentary ticket to Six Flags for their effort. Parents, new this year, you must go onto the sixflags.com/books website to verify that your child has completed 6 hours of reading. If you do not verify the hours, your child will NOT receive a ticket to Six Flags. To date, we have 41 Cumberland students who are signed up but no parent has yet verified the reading hours. Please do that by next Friday for your child to qualify.
Boys Running Program - The Let Me Run program for boys is coming this spring! This program combines fun activities with running to inspire, teach, and empower kids. Let Me Run is a 7-week program that meets twice per week directly after school for an hour and 15 minutes. It helps boys learn teamwork, build relationships, grow emotionally, and empower themselves and others. Registration will be opening soon!
Girls On The Run Canceled - Unfortunately, the Girls On The Run Program that was supposed to start on February 27th has been canceled due to low participation. We will try to run this program in the fall next year in hopes that it is a better time for our families.
