* A Note of Thanks

What a memorable celebration of our 25th anniversary! Thank you. On behalf of all of us at Crossroads, we are so grateful for all our community did to celebrate our history and to look ahead toward the next quarter century. Happy Birthday, Crossroads!

*Head’s Note

This Friday we have another meaningful event planned–our annual Core Knowledge Coffee in the library from 8:15-9:15 am. If you are new to Crossroads or if you have not yet had the chance to attend this very important discussion, I hope you will be able to join us this year. The presentation by Dr. Freeberg, our Core Knowledge Coordinator, provides a depth of understanding and context for much of the work we do at our school.

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!
