Principal's Message

Dear Parents/ Guardians, 

Welcome to a winter!  We will be going outside on a regular basis, so please ensure your child is dressed for the weather.  Storm cancellations will be announced on the CCRSB website ( as well as our Cumberland North Academy Home and School Facebook Site along with local radio stations.  If there is a planned Early Cancellation, it will be announced.  Any unplanned cancellations, parents will be contacted directly.  Students should know their emergency plan if school is cancelled.    

We will use our website for Calendars/ Communication Plans/ Newsletters and such.  If you require paper copies, please send a note in your child's agenda and we will send them home.Communication Plans can be found under Staff on the website.

We use our agenda's on a regular basis for home and school communication.  Please address concerns to the classroom teacher as they arise by scheduling a phone conversation or meeting. 

Parents are often called upon to Chaperone trips, coach, volunteer in the school or for Home and School events.  In order to protect our students, all volunteers are required to complete a Volunteer Package, which includes a Child Abuse Registry and a Criminal Records Check.  Packages can be obtained from the office. 

Although attendance is very important to school success, we do not encourage students to attend when they are sick.  Please visit the Caring for Kids Website at if you are unsure if you should send them. 

Please look at the Monthly Calendar on a regular basis. 

Our Student Success Planning Goals are:

1.  To increase student achievement in Literacy.

2.  To in crease student achievement in Mathematics. 

At Cumberland North Academy, we have Respect for SOLE- Self, Others, Learning and Environment.  Each day, staff find students doing great things and sometimes, they receive a GOTCHA.  We have weekly draws for CNA GOTCHA Pencils and monthly draws for CNA Dog Tags.  We love to celebrate the positive!

Thanks for all of your support!

Kathy Wells,

Principal, Cumberland North Academy
