Student council leads LIFE

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

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!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

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 :)

If we haven’t said it enough already . . .

. . . we’ll say it again!  CrossPointe is a family.  Even those who have graduated are still a part of the family, and one of the things we will be doing later this year in the tenth year of the school’s history is catch up with and feature here as many of CPP’s alumni as we can.

On Tuesday, September 11, in LIFE, Mrs. Dawson read a letter to the student body from one of last year’s graduates, Caleb Taylor, who is now a freshman at College of the Ozarks in Missouri.  In his letter, Caleb let everyone know that he misses them and that he is praying for them, and he gave them words of encouragement and advice.  In essence, one big brother was touching base with almost a hundred younger siblings!

CrossPointe students put together fifty Nicaragua Christmas boxes!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Today during LIFE at CrossPointe, big and little buddies worked together to fill bags that will go into boxes for children in Nicaragua this Christmas.  The boxes contained toys, personal care items, an item of clothing, school supplies, and candy.  Then they made “Feliz Navidad” cards to include with the boxes.  Below, a couple of students work on their cards.
