Graduation and Achievements 2018

August 20, 2018

WOW! It’s hard to believe that the summer program has finished!

The time sure has flown! Many of our students have now become “graduates” and will soon move on to their next schools. Other people will take them by the hand, teach them, guide and nurture them, and we’ll miss each and every one. Other students will return for another year, some in new classrooms. And other students will start their educational time at Crossroads, a process which will continue all throughout the school year.

Time goes quickly, children grow up so fast. Everyone knows that they are going to grow up, but sometimes we don’t really think about the fact that they will someday be tweens, and then teens, and in the wink of an eye, adults. It’s so very important that our kids learn the skills that are essential for success in life, that they can grow to be independent and happy and productive to their greatest capability as individuals.

That’s why this school exists. Every second that our students are with us is devoted to building skills and preparing for success in their lives. Like mama birds, we’ll be proud to see them fly in a world where for many, the odds were against them.

This year’s “GRADUATION and ACHIEVEMENTS CELEBRATION” took place over 2 days, one for each group, Preschool and School-age. Please enjoy the pictures below from this year’s celebration. They range from preparations, waiting time before-hand, during and after both days. A zillion thanks to all of the teachers, teaching assistants, therapists and volunteers who worked extremely hard to make this all happen again this year. Daily practice and tons of communication are the key ingredients to the success of this event! Also, we are indebted forever to DJ Zac Barr for providing the music for this event. He is amazing and we recommend him highly.  And, as always, the parents and families of the children, who entrust their children and themselves to Crossroads for education and care, deserve our gratitude and respect in abundance.
