Hello Parents/Guardians of Cumberland Elementary School:
We are excited that we are having a successful year and looking forward to completing our annual tasks. One of those tasks involves all 3rd-4th grade students participating in the Illinois Assessment of Readiness (IAR) testing. Testing will be April 4th-8th. These assessments do not define our students but are a snapshot of learning and instruction for continuous improvement.
Please encourage your child to eat a good breakfast or participate in our breakfast program. A good night’s sleep will assist them during these tests. The students will take one assessment each day that will last around 60-90 minutes. The rest of the day will be as normal as possible. Thank you for your support of your child and Cumberland Elementary School!
Mr. Daniel M. Huffman
