It is hard to believe that the first quarter is behind us and the holidays are rapidly approaching. I want to take this opportunity to share some of the great things happening at Cross Creek. We continue to strive to meet the needs of the whole child. While we emphasize social emotional and behavioral growth, academics are a primary focus at Cross Creek. With our school-wide literacy initiatives we strive to ensure that every student at Cross Creek makes learning gains in all areas of academics. Please stress the importance of reading in your home. Students can and will make improvements increasing their reading skills with continued practice. A short 10-15 minutes each night can yield wonderful outcomes for our students.
Many of our High School students were presented with certificates for the growth they made on the literacy assessments. It is evident that when our students set goals and get adequate support and guidance at school and at home, they can and do achieve.
It is my pleasure to serve as the Principal at Cross Creek. I know the challenges that you may experience in raising a child with exceptional needs. While this can create stress, please know that it is our commitment to provide your child with a safe, nurturing and academically challenging environment. Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time should have questions, concerns or simply want to touch base about your child's progress. Together, I am confident that each child can learn, grow and meet with success. Wishing you and your family a peaceful holiday!
