Thank You - On behalf of the entire Cumberland staff, I would like to thank the PTO and parent volunteers who made Staff Appreciation Week 2016 such a wonderful experience. We were pampered with daily treats such as morning fruit trays, a delicious soup and salad lunch, goodie bags, flowers and cards from students, and a very special hot breakfast to top it all off. Cumberland is such a special school, and I know I speak for our entire staff when I say how honored we are to be able to touch the lives of your children each and every day. Thank you again for all the hard work that went into making us feel so special and appreciated!!!
New 5th Grade Teacher - We have been approved for a second section of 5th grade for the 2016-2017 school year. I'm very happy to announce that Mr. Richard McKelvey will be filling that open position. Richard has worked at Cumberland for the past two years in the capacity of a floating substitute teacher and a para educator. He has come to earn the respect of both our staff and students and has done an excellent job in all areas that he has covered. We are very excited to welcome Mr. McKelvey back to Cumberland in the capacity of a teacher.
Final Day of School - The last day for student attendance this year will be Friday, June 3 for a full day.
