I hope you are enjoying a wonderful summer and the unexpected kinda cool front. We hope you are ready to start a new school year! 

 

All signs point to another incredible and productive school year. We’ve been planning and preparing for your child(ren) all summer! We’ve registered new families, ordered needed materials and updated all the student files. The hard-working custodians have spent the entire summer thoroughly cleaning the facility. Our much-appreciated staff is gearing up to welcome families, provide volunteer opportunities, and offer other exciting events and programs this year for your children, and you can hear all about it at our Open House! As you know, our campus is indeed a happy and caring community with the common goals of nurturing responsible, caring students and promoting high-level learning.We are happy to see you! 

And welcome to all the new families!

Facilities Update
We are, again and always, truly thankful for First English Lutheran Church. We have a beautiful building with space to meet the needs of all the programs we offer.

A previous safety and security review generated a recommendation that additional surveillance cameras be added to better monitor ingress and regress. Prior installation of interior and exterior cameras enhanced our ability to record who is on or around our campus. As always, we want to be as proactive as possible for the safety of your children. And we are thankful that we have never had a security issue.

 

CCS started with 7 students (two of them my own children) in one small room back in 2014. Our program has successfully and steadily grown and the needed space to meet the mobility and instructional needs of children continues to grow. To accommodate space for increased enrollment and program needs, classrooms have moved, and areas re-arranged. We can’t wait for you to see!  We are so appreciative of all our accommodations and are blessed to be housed in the education building here at FELC.  Thank you, First English Lutheran Church!

 

Student Placement
A great deal of time, effort and thought has gone into the process of student placement for the 2019-2020 school year.

 

Careful consideration was given to input from staff and families as well as student learning styles. Classrooms have been balanced academically and socially. Our class lists are structured to provide equitable class sizes at each grade level.  Moving students is difficult without causing imbalances and inequities.

 

Thank you so much for being positive with your child and helping him or her understand that it is impossible to place all students with a preferred best friend or teacher. ALL of our staff works hard to make school a positive experience for ALL students. Crossroads Christian School is eagerly looking forward to enriching your child’s life. Thank you for understanding that it can take a few weeks for a child to acclimate to a new grade, peer group and teacher.

 

Thank you to all who are helping prepare for the new school year. Your commitment to ensuring that CCS remains a celebrated and successful school is awe-inspiring. I eagerly look forward to greeting students and families again. It remains an honor and privilege to serve you.  Please stop by and say hello. Together, I know we will make this school year one of growth and achievement for all children.

 

Thank you for being a part of our amazing learning community. We welcome and value your prayers, support and dedication to excellence in education, and we look forward to working with you and your children.
