Dear parents/guardians and students,
“You're never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child.” ... Dr. Suess
Welcome to Crossroads Elementary! Where we Play~Believe and Achieve! Our faculty and staff having been working extremely hard this year to ensure that your student has an excellent year at CES! Each day students are provided with experiences, challenges and learning opportunities that provide them with superior preparation for the years to come!
Throughout a child's school experience, they will learn a great deal about many subjects. Reading is the single most important skill that a learner possesses because it is the gateway to all other learning. Without the ability to read, students cannot perform in school nor function in everyday life. Simply put, students must learn to read.
As a parent, the best thing you can do to help an elementary student improve academically is to read with them. By putting a few strategies into action, you can make a significant contribution to your child's reading.
Please continue to work with your child on the items mentioned above and never hesitate to communicate with your child's teacher or the administration with any questions or concerns. If your schedule permits, I encourage you to contact the school and inquire about becoming a volunteer and guest reader. Students love to have guest readers in their classrooms! Thank you for trusting us with your children and feel free to stop by or contact me at 606-674-2101 if there is anything you need.
Mrs. Lorinda Rogers Jamison
Principal, Crossroads Elementary
