Kindergarten Showcase Coming to Cumberland County Schools
Cumberland County Schools (CCS) is launching its first-ever Kindergarten Showcase to introduce rising kindergarteners and their families to the elementary school environment. The showcase consists of a virtual Beginners’ Day at each elementary school, followed by in-person orientations, community events and much more. The goal is to provide a variety of opportunities and formats for families to register their children for kindergarten and learn about all of the great things each school has to offer. This exciting showcase kicks off on Friday, April 8, 2022, and ends on Saturday, August 20, 2022.

CCS has diverse schools that build positive relationships with students from all walks of life, engage families as partners and are passionate about serving the interests of children and the goals of families. As each school welcomes kindergartners into the classroom, they also welcome the entire family into a system of support with everything each child needs to become capable, confident and successful in life. The educational offerings provided through CCS align each child’s education to their interests and the ways they learn best. At each school in the district, families will find caring and dedicated teachers who are as skilled in knowing each child and bringing out their potential as they are in the subjects they teach.
