Our Junior Optimist Club has been leading a fundraising project to benefit
the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. The 'Pasta for Pennies Project' began
on March 3rd and will end on March 13th. The funds collected will be
donated to local organizations to fund research to eliminate childhood
cancer. Please encourage your child to continue bringing in as many pennies
or other coins they would like to donate toward this effort.
We are looking forward to reaching our goal of $2,500.00.
The mission of Cummings School is to ensure measurable success for all students as determined by state and national standards by educating them to read with comprehension, write
clearly, compute accurately, think, reason, use technological means to solve problems, and have an awareness of ethical standards that promote justice, peace, and social concern. By the
end of the eighth grade, all students will meet or exceed the Tennessee standards and be ready to enter middle school prepared to do grade level work without need for remediation.
