Cross Oaks Elementary is a dynamic learning community. During the school year, Cross Oaks students can participate in a science fair, multiple art exhibits, outdoor learning activities, and several family fun nights that feature a different academic focus each time. Additionally, students are encouraged to develop their critical thinking skills through chess club, orchestra, choir and cooking club.
Students are taught to be good citizens of the world by exploring how they can contribute now by participating in the Owls Council for Kindness as well as food drives, an angel tree during the holiday season and a recycling team. The Cross Oaks mission statement, “We empower individuals to grow and learn,” guides and defines the small and large educational decisions that shape both the students’ daily lives and the trajectory of their future learning.
We are inviting our parents to sign up to receive text message alerts this year from Cross Oaks Elementary. Remind is a one-way text messaging and email system. All personal information remains completely confidential.
