Image of Child Nutrition Services LogoIn the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew, many Cumberland County residents continue to deal with personal loss and challenging conditions.  To assist in the recovery process, the USDA is providing assistance to 32 North Carolina counties, including the Cumberland County Schools’ Child Nutrition Services, impacted by a Major Disaster Declaration.

The benefits include offering meals to all students of the Cumberland County Schools at no charge through November 11, 2016. During this time, each student regardless of his/her approved meal status will be allowed one breakfast and one lunch per day at no charge.  All meals will continue to meet USDA guidelines. Additional items, including milk, may be purchased at the a la carte prices.

Starting November 14, 2016, student meals will return to regular pricing.  Parents/guardians who have not done so already, may submit an application for free or reduce priced meal benefits at any time throughout the school year.  Only one application is needed per household.

Easy access to nutritious school meals will help keep students well-nourished and ready to learn as our community continues to deal with the aftermath and recovery from Hurricane Matthew.

David McCarter Assistant PrincipalCardinal Staff and Students would like to welcome our new Assistant Principal, Mr. David McCarter.

Hello, my name is David McCarter.  I graduated from Fayetteville State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics and a Master’s degree in Mathematics and school Administration.  I taught math at Douglas Byrd High for five years and completed my internship at Margaret Willis.  While at Douglas Byrd I coached football, basketball, and tennis.  I also implemented “Dress for Success” which helped students see that there is more to them than the negative things they hear.  I watched the students’ perspectives about themselves change and saw an increase in academic performance for students participating in the program.  I am excited and privileged to join the Lewis Chapel Middle School team.

Shopping Hours: 7:00 am – 2:45 pm

Reading is the most important skill you can teach a child. Of all the skills children learn, it is the one you can influence the most. Giving kids access to good books and the opportunity to choose books will motivate them to read more. And like most acquired skills, the more kids practice reading, the better they’ll get.

Online shopping is now open!
