CRES Fest Silent Auction

CRES Fest is a few months away, but believe it or not, the planning has already begun! The Silent Auction Committee is looking for people to volunteer their time and join the team. Whether you are willing to make phone calls or send emails to businesses to solicit donations, you have a passion for entering data into the auction bidding site, or you are able to be a runner and pick items up from local businesses, no job is too small. We need your help! Please consider joining this amazing group – together we are a stronger team!

Our first meeting as a team will be soon – stay tuned for a date to be announced. Interested in joining the Silent Auction Committee or need more information? Please email

Staff Appreciation

Thank you to all those that purchased a pie for November’s “Give Thanks with Pie” staff appreciation gift. Our school would not be the amazing and beautiful place that it is without the supportive and caring staff at CRES. Thank you for showing your appreciation to this deserving group!

Next Open Forum Meeting

Please note that there will be no Open Forum meeting in December. Our next PTO Open Forum Meeting will be Tuesday, January 3rd at 7:00pm. Please mark your calendars to attend – free childcare will be provided by the YMCA in the gym. We hope to see you there!

Next week, we are asking all HSE Schools champions to rise! Not only do we have 24 hours to shower our schools, faculty, and staff with compliments, but thanks to this team of local philanthropist you can double your donation! Every dollar donated to HSE Schools Foundation on Giving Tuesday will be matched up to $21,000. That means double the impact for literacy, STEM, mental health, social justice, fitness, and more!

Help us reach that $21,000 goal on Tuesday, November 29 by visiting to make a gift of any size. And don’t forget to give a special shout out to that special teacher, coach, bus driver, counselor, nurse, custodian, or staff member.

And join us in thanking David Becker, Will Bryan, Kevin Clasen, Bud and Karen Colglazier, John and Amy DeLucia, Joe and Florie Eaton, Michelle and Greg Fullhart, The Henderson Family, Todd Huston, Jon and Kyle Kroehler, Tom and Tricia Long, Greg McDaniel, Kurt and Cathy Meyer, Tracy Mills, Mike and Paula Peterson, Gary Reynolds, Sundesh and Sneha Shah, Susan Binford Taylor, Corby Thompson, Greg and Charron Wright for their commitment to every student, every grade, every school!

Introducing our Technology Specialist

Hello CRES parents. My name is Brandon Gaffney and I’m the new Technology Specialist at Cumberland Road Elementary. I’m here this year to help with the tech support of your child’s rented IPad. If you have any malfunction such as a screen not working/broken or charging issues, feel free to contact me. Due to school policy we are basically "Hands-off" on personal devices. I can certainly offer some verbal suggestions, but cannot touch or reconfigure anything on a personal device. I can be reached by email at or by phone at 317-594-4170 ext. 1193 to assist you or make an appointment. Questions regarding login information and apps can be answered by your child's teacher.

Our Lost and Found is Overflowing

We would love to help distribute your children's lost items to them. May we suggest putting your child's name in the collar of their coats/jackets/sweatshirts etc...

We are sending so many items to Goodwill that we are sure you would like to have returned.

Lost and Found

Lost and Found items will be placed in the Hallways on the following dates:

November 17th

December 8th

January 12th

February 16th

March 9th

After one week in the hallway, they will be sent to Goodwill.
