Principal's Message

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to the 2023-24 school year at Cumberland Trace Elementary. Together with our wonderful staff, families, and community, I look forward to pursuing another year of excellence. 

Cumberland Trace Elementary is known for high academic achievement and love for our students and community. My goal is to continue to uphold our vision of creating lifelong learners and leaders. I will strive to create a school culture that will encourage your child to reach his or her highest potential. While at school, my goal is that each child feels welcomed, loved, and supported from the moment they step in the door. 

As your child's principal, I will stand by our school mission, “Students are learning as much as they can to be the best that they can.” All students at Cumberland Trace are provided with challenging, rigorous, and engaging learning experiences that reach each of their individual needs.  I strongly believe in the importance of communication and look forward to partnering with you in your child’s education. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have. It is going to be a great year to be a tiger!!
