iPad Air Raffle Tickets will be available in the school office for each family attending a Parent Teacher Conference. Please stop by after you meet with your child's teacher to get a chance to win this device. The iPad Air raffle will take place live at our final PBIS celebration in May and is provided through Title I funds.
The Giving Table will be introduced this year during Parent Teacher Conferences. We are asking for donations of new or gently used outerwear for children. Specifically we are seeking: children's coats, boots, snow pants, gloves, hats and scarves. Any parent needing these items is welcome to take whatever is needed from the Giving Table that will be located outside the office during conferences. It will benefit many of our Cumberland students as we approach the winter months.
Box Top Reminder - As you are cooking for the upcoming holiday season, please continue to clip and send in the Box Tops. With your help, our PTO made an amazing $1,200 last year, and we want to top that number this year. Please pass along this information to family and friends so they, too, can help us out as well. Congratulations to Mrs. Huffman's class, the 1st trimester pizza party winners, for collecting the most Box Tops. Tip - keep a snack size storage bag clipped to your refrigerator as a reminder to snip and collect the Box Tops.
Holiday Gift Card Fundraiser - This week the PTO sent home information about a NEW fundraiser just in time for the holiday season. The Manna Scrips program allows families to purchase gift cards, and the companies give the back a percentage of our sales to Cumberland. This is a great way to do one-stop holiday shopping. You can also buy gift cards to use at the grocery store, gas station, etc. The order form allows you to collect orders from family and friends too. All orders with signed release waivers are due by Friday, December 4 and the gift cards will be sent home Friday, December 11.
PTO International Night - Thank you to all who attended International Night! It was once again a wonderful opportunity for our families to get together. We would like to take a moment to thank all of the restaurants who donated to the event. Consider visiting one of these restaurants the next time you dine out, and tell them, "Thank you for supporting Cumberland Elementary School."
