New Family Orientation Night

As HSE School District is preparing for redistricting transition, we are excited to announce a New Family Orientation Night. If your child will be attending CRES next year please join the CRES staff and community at Cumberland Road Elementary on May 18 from 5:00PM-7:00PM. At this time you will be able to meet staff, tour the building and learn more about your new school, PTO and community. Your new school is very excited to see you!

Field Trip Volunteers

All parent chaperones need a current background check on file and must have viewed the bullying video. Information regarding this can be found on the HSE website under the Parent Resources tab – PTO and Volunteering. The background check process takes at least a week. Thank you.

From our School Nurse

All students are required to participate in physical education. To be excused from participating, a student must have a doctor’s note stating why he/she cannot participate and for how long the student will be excused. If a student is injured and is waiting to go to a doctor, a parental note may be used to excuse ONE day. The student must have a doctor’s note to continue to be excused from physical education class.

When notes are being written to our teachers, be specific. Terms such as “limited activity, some activity, not too much activity, and do what they feel like” are very ambiguous and open to varied interpretation. Any notes which are not specific will be interpreted as no physical activity.

3rd Grade Music Concerts

Dear Parents,

We have been working hard in music class over the past few months. We are very excited to put on a showcase of all the music we have been creating. In order to better highlight the individuality and creativity of the children, we will be having two 3rd grade showcases, one hour apart. Mr. Miller’s and Ms. Roth’s classes will have a showcase on March 26th at 6:00 PM in the CRES Gym. Ms. Head, Ms. Cook, and Ms. Nussbaum’s classes will have their showcase at 7:00 PM. Students report to their teachers’ classrooms ten minutes prior to the performance. Students should wear semi-formal attire such as they would for picture day. Any shoes are fine as long as children can move easily in them. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
