Cumberland School, Another Opportunity to Serve:  We became aware that the best way to reach the children of Cumberland is to work with them one on one.  At a minimum, our goal is to get some of these kids into the Wednesday night CONNECT program. There are some teachers that could use your assistance in their classrooms. Please consider giving some of your time to help. There is a form to fill out to meet the Lansing School Distracts security requirements.  I have those so please come and see me if you are interested in assisting. ~Vivienne M
