Thank you to Mrs. Kamdar’s third graders and to Mrs. Monaco’s Kindergarten students, who partnered with members of the Cushing LIT (Love, Inclusion and Trust) team! They created this incredible poster in celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, January 16th!

January is in full swing at Cushing!  The winter months are upon us (although we haven’t had any snow accumulation thus far)!  To combat the winter doldrums, Cushing will be sponsoring Spirit Days every Friday throughout the months of January and February, as follows:

  • Friday, January 20th:  Crazy Hat Day - wear your favorite hat to school!
  • Friday, January 27th: Dress Up As A Cushing Staff Member Day - students are encouraged to dress up as their favorite Cushing staff member!
  • Friday, February 3rd: Mixed Match Socks/Shoes Day - wear socks and/or shoes that don’t match!
  • Friday, February 10th: Twin/Triplet Day:  Students can dress up in the same clothes to be “twins” or “triplets.”
  • Friday, February 17th: Crazy Hair Day:  Get out the hair gel and style your hair to be out of this world!

More Spirit Days to follow in March - stay tuned for “March Madness” coming to Cushing soon!

Congratulations to our new house champs, the Jaguars for earning the most points!
