The faculty and staff of Cumberland Elementary work with approximately 400 children daily in Pre-Kindergarten through Fifth grade, this year we have 2 fifth grade classes as to accomodate the renovation of Joelton Middle School. We strive to provide the children with a safe, child-centered school that promotes success in academic areas and in being responsible citizens.
Our teachers utilize various teaching methods that address the needs of each child. In addition to the classroom teachers, a Title I teacher, Literacy Leader, Numeracy Leader, and Reading Specialist all work with children to encourage success in reading and math. In addition, all students in Kindergarten through fourth grade receive instruction in Art, Music and Physical Education each week.
We are excited about these programs; our goal is that all children develop a strong foundation in reading/language, writing, and math, as well as in science and social studies and the related arts. Learning to apply knowledge and making wise choices is also stressed.
Parents are asked and encouraged to be partners with us as we work with their children. Volunteers are always welcome. An active P.T.O helps provide materials that enhance our classes. Everyday at Cumberland Elementary School is an adventure.
