School Profile

  • Tracy B


    It is an honor and privilege to be a part of this beautiful learning community. I have loved spending time getting to know the staff, students, families and the surrounding community. I have found that as a school, we have strong traditions and rich diversity within our Crossroads Elementary environment. My hope is that all students in our two unique schools thrive, feel safe, valued, connected and challenged.
