The elementary and middle schools are collecting bottle caps to create a bench in memory of Mike Oakley, our Transportation Director. The specific caps listed will be recycled into a memorial bench to be placed at school as a reminder of Mike's positive influence on students, parents, and staff. If you would like to help, you may drop off your caps at the grade school office.
On Monday, November 13, we ask that all Cumberland students and staff wear Cardinal gear or red in honor of Mike Oakley, our beloved transportation director. Thank you!
Thank you to all who have served!
