* Head’s Note

Thank you all for participating and helping to create such an enjoyable and inspiring Family Arts Night last Friday. It was terrific to see so many families gathered to partake in this rich slice of our school’s culture. We have much to celebrate as a community, and the arts are a fantastic way to express who we are and what is important. As Richard Dreyfuss said in the movie Mr. Holland’s Opus, “Playing music is supposed to be fun. It’s about heart, it’s about feelings, moving people, and something beautiful, and it’s not about notes on a page. I can teach you notes on a page; I can’t teach you that other stuff.”

Here’s a big thank-you to all those in our community who make “that other stuff” come to life.

Crossroads Academy Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Celebration

On October 21, we warmly welcomed Crossroads community members to celebrate twenty-five years of Strong Minds, Kind Hearts!

In September 1991, Crossroads Academy opened its doors–dedicated to the proposition that little people can think big thoughts and have a lot of fun doing it. In its first years as a K-3 day school, Crossroads had 15 students and 5 teachers in the basement of a church. Today, the school’s K-8 program has over 130 students on its beautiful 140-acre campus. Crossroads Academy is a model school with nationally ranked and award-winning students and faculty.

Crossroads proudly celebrated twenty-five years of “Strong Minds and Kind Hearts” with an all-day series of events on our campus. The festivities took place throughout the day with students and faculty participating in community service projects, activities, and games. Then at 4:00 pm, the wider Crossroads community was invited to join us to continue the celebration with a school-wide parade and ringing of our school bell. Afterward, we moved to the gym for our main program, beginning with welcoming remarks and a keynote address by Crossroads founder Dr. Mary Beth Klee. We enjoyed the singing of our new school song “Strong Minds, Kind Hearts,” videotaped and congratulations presentations, and of course, birthday cake! Our celebration concluded with social time and refreshments hosted by the Crossroads Board of Trustees.

Thanks to all who attended and contributed to make our school’s twenty-fifth birthday so memorable!
