Principal's Welcome

Dear Central Street Families,

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year at Crossroads Academy-Central Street!  The staff and I are looking forward to partnering with you in our scholars' education. Thanks to the dedication of our staff, the upcoming year is full of engaging opportunities that will challenge and develop our scholars as they experience the world around them.

Being new to the leadership team, I would like to share a bit about myself. Over the past eleven years I served as a principal at three schools in the Kansas City area. Prior to that, I served as an assistant principal, instructional coach and teacher. I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary/Middle Education from the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire, a Master's Degree in Educational Administration from the University of Texas at Austin and an Educational Specialist degree from the University of Central Missouri. I am passionate about learning, living a growth mindset and leadership for all ages. In addition to being a devoted educator, I am a mom to a Crossroads Academy scholar. I love spending time with my son, traveling as a family, listening to live music (especially when my husband is playing) and reading.

I believe wholeheartedly in the work we do at Crossroads Charter Schools, and I am honored to serve as the Central Street principal. I encourage you to continue to join our staff in working together to make our vision a reality. When we partner to support our children in achieving academically and developing as individuals, they can realize their full potential as successful citizens in our community and in life. We are looking forward to our continued partnership in the upcoming school year!

Warm regards,

Laura LaCroix
