Principal’s Summer Message

As summer vacation approaches, students and families are looking forward to many wonderful events. Summer activities provide valuable experiences in which children learn about themselves and the world around them. Your child’s life can be enriched through reading and journal writing. Please make sure that your child’s day includes time that is set aside for independent reading. Reading is a “sport” with a 12-month season, so please ensure that your child makes it to “practice” every day.


Our Mission

To provide personalized academic and social-emotional support to our students in a restorative and caring learning environment so that they can begin to re-imagine a future for themselves.

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!  Our team is excited that you have chosen our school to address the academic needs of your child.  Crossroads Academy at Hunting Park is in year two of its rebranding phase. Our goal is to move away from the label of “behavioral school” and towards a restorative learning environment where students feel safe, supported, and inspired to learn.  Some of the programs we have launched to support this goal are:

Small class size
Restorative Practices
Music/Choral Therapy
Empowerment groups

The policies and procedures outlined in our handbook are designed to expose your family to our school-wide expectations and familiarize you with our school’s core values. We ask that you read the entire handbook with your child, so that you and your child understand what will be expected during the school year.  We also welcome the opportunity for parents and guardians to contribute to our learning environment in the form of service and participation in our school sponsored events.

We look forward to partnering with you over the course of the year to make this a fantastic year for everyone.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to the school administrator at 215-400-9060 or kdasilva@philasd.org.

 

Sincerely,

 

Dr. Bright, Principal
