Before School Supervision - As a reminder, we do not have supervision on the playground until 8:40 each morning. For safety reasons, students are not allowed on property before that time unless accompanied by an adult. If a child were to get hurt prior to the supervisors being on duty, it is likely that we would not know about it and be able to help. We need your cooperation to keep our children safe at all times.
Parents of PM Kindergarten Students - You are welcome to bring your child to play on the playground with our other students starting at 12:40 daily. If you decide to drop off your Cumberland kindergartner to play, you will not be able to stay on the playground during that time and younger siblings will also not be allowed. All of our supervisors are wearing orange vests for safety so that we always know which adults belong. You are welcome to stand on the sidewalk by the horseshoe drive to monitor your child until he/she goes into the building at 1:00.
Potbelly Dine & Donate Evening - Bring your family to Potbelly, (1506 Market St. Des Plaines), for dinner on Wednesday, September 19, between 5:00-8:00 p.m. and 25% of your order goes back to the Cumberland PTO. Click here to view the flyer (must have a printed flyer or a screenshot of it to show the cashier).
