For much of the fall and into the winter, Marilyn Wanner coordinated an impressive effort to produce a new admissions viewbook that not only reflects our school's diversity of strengths but also authentically speaks to Crossroads essential qualities of academic strength and the development of moral integrity. Many current parents, past parents, faculty and staff helped with this process, and we greatly appreciate all their creative energy and hard work to generate such a strong publication. The fact the project remained on schedule while integrating so many important perspectives speaks volumes about the collaborative nature of our school culture.

Throughout the school year, educators continually watch their students adapt to evolving social environments and new sets of materials. Each day provides precious opportunities to ask not just about what students are learning but how they are being taught. One of our fundamental questions is, “What are the essential habits of effective teachers and how do we encourage them to strengthen their practice with students no matter the subject they teach or their level of experience?”
