Did you know that learning a second language makes you smarter, helps you make better decisions and improves your skills in English.  Several studies have shown it is even know to stave off Alzheimer’s and dementia.  After knowing all of this, of course, we at Cumberland County believe we should do all that we can to promote world languages.   Spanish is the second most spoken language in the world.  Almost 18 percent of the population in the United States is of Hispanic origin and that number is growing.  Spanish language acquisition, understanding and integrating core concepts is the goal of the Cumberland County Spanish Quiz Bowl Competition.

Congratulations to ‘the big winners’ at  CCS’ Custodial Services’ ‘Red Carpet-Affair’ Dinner on May 4, 2018.  New Century International Middle School’s Custodial Staff took home the Charlie Wilson School of the Year Award.  More than 400 custodians from across the county and their guests enjoyed a fun-filled evening of food, fellowship, and more than 100 door prizes.  “This event is all about our custodians’ hard work and dedication to educating our children,” said CCS’ Chief Custodial Supervisor Faye McMillan.  “Some [custodians] don’t get the thanks and appreciation they deserve, and this is just one way for us to show them that the Cumberland County Schools appreciates their contributions to education.”

On April 22, 1970, the first Earth Day was celebrated in the U.S.  As of 1990, 192 countries celebrated Earth Day on April 22.  Earth Day is a day to bring awareness to the environment and what we can do about it.  This year, Ms. Sanchez-Macy’s 2nd period  Exploratory Spanish class wanted to do their part.  Students went out around the school and picked up litter.  They filled two garbage bags with refuse.  Littering causes our custodians to spend a great deal of time picking up trash.  Cumberland County resident tax payer money is used to clean up our streets.  We all like a beautiful community.  It takes everyone doing their part to make both our community and school a beautiful place to be.
