CrossPointe holds art show and spelling bee

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

On Thursday, November 1, CrossPointe held its annual spelling bee and semi-annual art show.  Ten students participated in the bee, and almost forty participated in the art show.  Winners of the spelling bee were champion Chase Kemper, 6th grade; runner-up Bri Mahoney, 6th grade; and second runner-up Tate Kemper, 4th grade.  Chase and Bri will go on to represent CrossPointe in the White County Spelling Bee in January.  Fifth graders Lucy Myers and Lauren Pearson may also represent CrossPointe in that bee.  (We choose two representatives for each eligible grade; fourth grade is not eligible for the county bee.  Next year, Tate!)

Student council leads LIFE

Student council has a regular rotation on the LIFE schedule, and it is always interesting to see what they do.  Students recently participated in a follow-the-leader choreography challenge, which amused the junior featured in the photo below.

We are family!

It’s something you will hear us say over and over again here at CrossPointe.  And like any family, we like to spend time together.  Here, two students–one in elementary school and one in high school–get to know each other better in an unlikely place under a table as part of the Big and Little Buddy program.

Quarter one is over already!

It’s hard to believe, but the school year is already one-fourth of the way over!  We are halfway to Christmas break and halfway to semester one testing.  CPP students like the one below, however, know that learning happens all semester long and that keeping up with their studies is an important part of being academically successful.

It’s portrait time!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Yesterday, September 25, was portrait day for 6th grade and under.  Tomorrow will be portrait day for 7th-12th grades.  At CrossPointe, portraits are done “in house.”*  Dr. Brooks, our academic dean, is the photographer, and members of the journalism staff are his assistants.  We also had a parent volunteer this year who helped keep everything moving (thank you, Kim Williams!).

*On a literal level, though, portraits are done “out of house,” i.e. outside.  In the photo below, a journalism student demonstrates one of the challenges of working with the sun :)
