Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to the 2012-2013 school year at
Crossroads Elementary School! My
name is Celeste Carty and this is my fourteenth year as the principal of
Crossroads. I hope you had a
safe and wonderful summer vacation.
Our school continues to be a community where students are our number one
priority. We look forward to
working to provide a rigorous education for your child.
As we begin a new school year there is
a lot of excitement ahead of us, including meeting new teachers, reading new
books, making new friends, and mastering new skills. I look forward to sharing in these exciting times along with
you and your child.
As an entire staff, we look forward to
continuing our work on the district wide priorities established in the Strong
Schools, Strong Communities plan. We will continue with our commitment to
provide all Crossroads students with a challenging and rigorous curriculum,
using assessments to guide, plan and strengthen our instruction.
I encourage you to become an active
partner with us at Crossroads.
There will be several opportunities for you to join us during the
upcoming school year. Some of
those opportunities are: volunteering in classrooms, chaperoning on field
trips, joining the Action Team, Site Council, PTA, attending family events,
establishing homework routines, and reading with your child each day.
In closing, I would like to thank you
for choosing Crossroads Elementary School and for trusting us with your child's
education. I look forward to
meeting each and every one of you throughout the year.
