D62 Communications Survey - In an effort to make sure we are reaching all of our families in the most effective ways possible, District 62 is asking that you fill out an online communication survey. The survey will be open from October 2nd-16th, and you can access it by going to www.d62.org or access the link here on any mobile device or computer. Click here for more information.
Halloween Costumes - We love celebrating Halloween at Cumberland, but do want to remind you of a few restrictions regarding student costumes at school. Costumes cannot include representations of weapons of any kind (i.e. swords, guns, clubs, lasers, etc.). Costumes should not display blood or gore, and masks should allow for children to have a clear line of vision. Again this year, clown costumes will not be allowed. A flyer will be sent home soon, and will also be linked in the upcoming newsletter, with a full list of Halloween reminders as well as the events for that day.
Red Cross Donations - Our Student Council is accepting donations to help people in need after the damage created by hurricanes in Texas and Florida. Please help Cumberland show that we care, and bring loose change to the office by October 16th. If we all give a little, it can help more than we can alone.
