CrossPointe seventh-grader Kendra Neill finished in first place at the 2013 White County Spelling Bee. Neill won in the 34th round of the contest, correctly spelling “legislatorial” to earn the top spot among the 79 entrants from throughout White County. Neill received a trophy and a $100 prize, and her name will be placed on a plaque that CrossPointe will display until next year’s contest. She also earned a spot to compete in the state bee in Conway on March 2nd.
This was the first year that CrossPointe competed in the county spelling bee. Wendy Neill, Kendra’s mother, organized a school spelling bee last fall and worked to prepare the entrants to the county bee.
In addition to Neill, CrossPointe was represented by Scarlett Leckie of Searcy, who finished in 7th place, and Alaina Headley of Cabot. A group of CrossPointe students and faculty attended the county bee to support the three girls and to enjoy this historic day for the school.
Jackson James Performs with Arkansas Repertory
Jackson James of Searcy, a senior at CrossPointe Preparatory, has been selected for the cast of the Arkansas Repertory Theatre’s Young Artists musical revue, “Singin’ on a Star.”
“Singin’ on a Star” is all about the actor’s journey from stardust to stardom, weaving together true stories and the not-so-glamorous reality of an actor chasing big dreams in the Big Apple. From finding a survival job singing for tips at a diner in New York City, to landing a once-in-a-lifetime audition to Broadway stardom, audiences will catch a glimpse of the real-life stories of surviving actors chasing a dream.
Lilli Grace Barden and Hannah Haddix, students at CrossPointe Preparatory and residents of Searcy, join other local children and Harding University students in the University’s production of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” The show is being performed as part of the University’s 2012 Homecoming weekend.

Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, “Joseph” brings to life the biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors. The musical uses a narrator to present the story of Joseph, presented as a “dreamer,” and traces his life as he receives the coat, is sold into slavery by his brothers, and later rises to prominence in the government of Egypt. As in the biblical narrative, Joseph later interprets Pharaoh’s dreams, has a contentious reunion with his brothers when they journey to Egypt to buy food, and is eventually reunited with his father.
We are looking forward to CrossPointe's very first Family Celebration Night! If you haven't already, mark your calendars for Thursday, September 20th at 6:30pm. It will be a fun night of fellowship and honoring you, our CPP families!
In the meantime, please email to us a family photo and a brief paragraph about your family. The photo doesn't need to be professional. A quick shot from your phone's camera will be perfectly fine. We will need these items electronically sent to us by September 6th.
Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to celebrate you!
Our Visit to HUT (Harding Univ at Tahkodah)
Incredible, Eye-opening, Sobering, are just a few words to try to begin to describe the HUT experience. The cross-cultural dynamics of many developing countries, including our own, were revealed in the diverse worldwide sampling of housing scattered throughout the rugged terrain of Harding University at Tahkodah's hands-on training campus.
We take so much for granted in our daily walk. We have a loving family, warm homes that provide shelter, an abundance of food to fill our stomachs, and a selection of clothes for our body. These are the needs for children all over the world, yet we forget that not everyone has these needs met. We find ourselves asking the question: How can we be busy trying to satisfy our wants when there are children in our own community that have unmet needs?
