A Note from Acting Head of School...
CTCT-20180914_140241
Dear Parents,
"I'VE NOTICED" a lot of great things happening at Crossroads and so has everyone else! We are creating a culture of positivity by encouraging staff, students and parents to NOTICE and comment on something good they see happening.

It is often the case that teachers make mention of the good things they see their students doing but we wanted to give students the chance to do the same. When students NOTICE something nice , they are encouraged to complete the form. As you can see, we had to expand the bulletin board because there are a lot of great things being NOTICED at Crossroads these days!

Parents can also participate! If you want to comment on something positive, please use the form to the left. (Click on the form and you will be able to download the file.)

Don't forget to visit Building One during Open House next week. You can read all the notices and see all the positive comments that were written.
