* Head’s Note
There’s a certain wisdom to the selection and sequence of our Core Virtues curriculum. Experienced educators know that much of the work we do this year begins with fostering respect and responsibility, both personally and collectively at Crossroads. It is little wonder, then, that we focus on these two virtues during the month of September.

Preschool Music Explorers

We invite preschool children ages 3-5 to sing and play with props and instruments for six Saturday mornings, 9:00-10:15 am, beginning October 15. Lower School music teacher Megan Helm will be leading the little folk on a musical adventure honoring the natural world. Songs and games about insects, birds, animals, and trees will accompany our walks. We will drum in the outdoor classroom and explore found sounds at the “Sticks and Stones” area. Most importantly, we will explore ways to organize sounds into music. Please tell your friends and neighbors about this Saturday morning program. To sign up for this six-week musical journey, please click here.
