This Week at CHS 9/25/2017

Cumberland Parents,

After nearly a week of dreary weather, finally a burst of glorious sun to herald the start of our 5th week of school. I hope you have enjoyed the weather, had a relaxing weekend and are ready to visit with us at Meet the Teacher Night tomorrow. The administrative team will be out and about and look forward to meeting you as well. We'll see you then!

Meet the Teacher!

I cannot stress the importance of meeting your students' teachers enough. This is a special event that we take quite seriously here at Cumberland High School as it is an opportunity to meet the professionals who influence your students' lives everyday. I know that you will arrive with high expectations and pledge that you will not leave disappointed. Teachers have prepared informative presentations to give you a comprehensive idea of the daily workings of their classes. They can explain upcoming curriculum and classroom/school policies and expectations. Meeting the teacher helps foster trust, cooperation and communication between parents and teachers and greatly improves students' opportunities for success. Events that bring stakeholders together for discourse and reflection are absolute necessities for progressive learning communities.

Each class period will last approximately 10 minutes with a passing period in between. You might ask your student to provide you with a copy of his/her schedule before the event. If you don't have a schedule for your student, please visit the cafeteria in the main building for assistance when you arrive.
