A Note from the Board Chair ...
Everyone loves to hear compliments and praise but most of us cringe when we are criticized. Crossroads School is deep in the midst of our re-accreditation review. We are accredited by TAAPS - the Texas Alliance of Accredited Private Schools - and every three years we are required to engage in a self-study to evaluate our compliance with all the standards. It’s a lot of work and requires time.

While the goal is the ultimate “stamp of approval” at the end, I strongly believe that it is the process of accreditation that is the most valuable. If we don’t take the time to evaluate ourselves, we cannot improve. We stagnate with complacency and don’t challenge ourselves without asking the difficult questions involved in a critical review.

This is a long introduction to let you know that you will soon receive a survey asking for your input. We want to hear honest feedback, the good and the not so good. We need to hear from parents and alumni about the experience at Crossroads School. The feedback can be anonymous or you may choose to include your name with your response. The important part is that we gather the data and use the comments as a growth tool.

This process is also a good model for our students. Teachers provide feedback to their students all the time.  Ultimately, the goal is the same, to learn and to continually strive to be better.

The Positivity Project - Teamwork

This week's social skill was TEAMWORK and what better way to see teamwork than to do a 100 piece puzzle! The students worked super hard on the puzzle pieces and it was really nice to see. The kids' favorite part was actually seeing Ms. Patti-Brown on the table helping her team with the puzzle!
As Seen on Campus...
 The Science classes learned about gravitational height, energy transfer, kinetic and potential energy by making paper tracks for a marble roller coasters. Each class had to work as a TEAM to make a ride that would ensure the marble had enough force and energy to make it through each hill and all the way to the end. They used as many boxes as they wanted and positioned them in any way they wanted to create an epic ride!
