Dear Falcon Families,


I am thrilled to welcome you to Cumberland Heights Elementary and hope you have the best school experience ever. I am privileged to have the opportunity to serve as your principal and honored to work with our qualified and dedicated staff, our wonderful students, and supportive parents. The elementary years are critical times of development for students and families and I look forward to working with you to make this school year successful.

Our motto at Cumberland Heights Elementary is “One Team! One Dream! One Goal!”. Our team includes every student, parent, staff member, and community member. Our dream is to meet or exceed annual state testing expectations (ESSA) on TNReady assessments and our goal is to meet or exceed established grade level fluency goals in reading and math. Student success is the driving force behind our motto and I believe all children are more successful when we work as a team to achieve academic goals.

Our staff is devoted to utilizing research-based best practices to guide every student, every day to reach their full potential. Our teachers work collaboratively to implement lessons and assessments to monitor student progress and guide data-driven decision making. As part of our team, I ask for your support and participation in our efforts by sending your child to school every day, encouraging him/her to read for pleasure and to practice math fluency each night, monitoring homework and progress, and asking your child to share their clear daily targets from class each day.

Thank you for entrusting your most precious gift to us each and every day.



Tonya Cunningham
