The Giving Table - We will again have the Giving Table available during Parent Teacher Conferences. This table will contain gently used children's clothing, coats, hats, gloves, and scarves. Feel free to stop by when you are attending your conference and take whatever items you need. If you have gently used children's clothing or outerwear that others might be able to use, feel free to leave the items on the table.
Tree Lighting Ceremony - We hope you can join us for the Des Plaines Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony (Metropolitan Square - 647 Metropolitan Way) on Friday, December 1st starting at 4:00 p.m. This is a fun and free event for the entire family. Click here to view the details.
Box Tops Total - So far this school year you have helped us earn $441.20 from collecting Box Tops! This money goes directly back to our students and helps the PTO fund the amazing items that our students can "purchase" with their Paw Prints at the Paw Market. Please continue to clip those Box Tops, they truly add up and help our school. Thank you very much for your contributions so far!!!
Movie Night Date Change - Mark your calendar for Friday, December 8th from 6:00-8:00 p.m. for the PTO Movie Night featuring Captain Underpants! This event will take place in the Cumberland gym and PJs and sleeping bags are welcome!
PTO Meeting Reminder - We hope you can join us for the next meeting on Monday, December 4th at 6:00 p.m. in the LMC. All parents are welcome and free childcare will be available.
After School Enrichment Classes - Last year the PTO was able to offer after school art and chess enrichment classes for the students. If parents are interested in having these programs (or others) again this year, we will need two parent volunteers per class once a week to be at the school. We've had some interest but still not enough volunteers. If you would be willing to help, please email the PTO at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Happy Thanksgiving - On behalf of the entire Cumberland School staff, we wish you and your family a happy and safe Thanksgiving holiday.
