Cumberland PARCC Results - Our 3rd - 5th graders are now finished with PARCC testing 2016! These assessments are very long, require a great deal of thought, and are very difficult. The staff was so impressed with how our students took the test seriously, and tried their hardest throughout the 7-day process. I'm proud to announce that Cumberland students had the overall highest scores in all of District 62 in both ELA (English Language Arts) and Math on the 2015 PARCC test. Our 3rd - 5th graders scored better than 84% of all students testing in the State of Illinois in ELA and better than 77% in Math. Way to go Cumberland students and staff, we are so proud of you!!!
Lighthouse Awards - Please join me in congratulating Erin Ballman, Connie Harford, and Gary Niemiec for being nominated for a District 62 Lighthouse Award. The Board of Education honored them at the Monday, April 18 meeting. All three of these staff members go "above and beyond," and greatly impact the lives of children. They deserve this recognition for a job well done!!!
