We started our morning a bit tired but positive about Open House last night. We appreciated the opportunity to meet with so many of our families and share information about the program and curriculum with Middle School and High School parents. (Our Elementary Parents will have a rescheduled Open House soon.)
Please help us to continually improve by completing this very short survey about the Open House. We ask that all parents click through to the survey even if you were unable to attend.
REMINDER: Crossroads will have EARLY DISMISSAL this Wednesday, September 26. All students should be picked up at 12:30 PM.
There will be no after-school Homework Skills.
These early dismissal days are scheduled throughout the year to allow staff to attend in-service training sessions. In addition to the specialist we bring in to the school, Crossroads School receives external Title II and Title IV funding through HISD. The purpose of these federally mandated programs is to help Private Non-Profit Schools increase student achievement in well-rounded education subjects by improving teacher effectiveness in the classroom. The funds cover professional development opportunities locally, on-line and out of state and we receive an "equitable service" share. This means that public schools and private schools both receive the same amount of funding per student.
(While we are talking about early dismissal, remember that October 1-4 will also have early dismissal at 12:30 PM in order for us to hold Parent/Teacher Conferences. Watch your email for information to sign up for a time slot.)
