About Crossroads Park Elementary

  • Tricia KurttIt is a great privilege to begin my second year serving as the principal at Crossroads Park Elementary. I will continue to work diligently to ensure a safe, joyful, and rigorous learning experience for your student(s) each day. I believe that our ongoing collaboration as a community of teachers, parents, students, support staff, and administration will be the key to ensuring the success and safety of every student. At CRP we are committed to our district vision of fostering a “caring community of learners that knows and lifts every child.”

    Common language and clearly taught expectations are foundational to a safe community and PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) serves as our school wide system to teach and reinforce positive behavior. During the first six weeks of school, our daily morning meetings will focus on teaching our PBIS expectations as well as the social and emotional life skills that contribute to a positive learning community. 

    Getting the year off to a great start is our number one priority as a staff. When all students and staff do their part to keep our school safe, our focus and energy can be poured into creating a rigorous learning environment grounded in the characteristics we want every student to embody.  As a district, we desire that your student(s)  graduate WDMCS possessing “the essential skills and integrity to communicate, collaborate, and solve problems as a confident citizen, embracing our diverse and changing world.”

    As a mom of a 20-year-old daughter and 19-year-old son, I understand all the emotions, hopes, and dreams you have for your student(s) and that is what will ground our collaboration this year as we all work together to guide learning, celebrate successes, and engage as a Crossroads Park family.

    Go Tigers!
