OpED - Back to School by Dr. Marvin Connelly, Jr.
Dear Parents and Families of Cumberland County Schools,
Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! I am delighted to kick off another exciting Back-to-School season with you. As your superintendent, I am honored to lead this exceptional educational community. Your presence and support are greatly appreciated, and I am grateful to have you as part of the CCS family.
As we begin this academic year, it is important to emphasize our collective commitment to student success. Under the new theme of "Cumberland Strong: United for Student Success," we are dedicated to rising above any challenges and working together to ensure the best outcome for every student.
Our school district has a well-deserved reputation for excellence. Our students and staff consistently achieve remarkable success both inside and outside the classroom. Last year, many of our successful students and premier professionals showcased their talents at the state and national levels, and we expect this year to be no different. As we embark upon a new school year, we will continue to be guided by our strategic plan, "The Cumberland Commitment," which lays the foundation for our endeavors.
To access all the necessary information for a successful start to the school year, I encourage you to peruse our CCS Back-to-School Guide. This comprehensive platform will serve as a one-stop-shop for everything related to the upcoming academic year, including school uniform updates, school calendars, immunization requirements, and more. Please visit the site regularly, as we will consistently update it with relevant and timely information.
Thank you for your continued support as we work together to provide a safe, positive, and rigorous learning environment to prepare lifelong learners to reach their maximum potential.
With sincere appreciation,
Dr. Marvin Connelly, Jr.
