Cross Junior Wins SEE Essay Award
Hi, Cross Fam!
My student Jiali Guo has been identified as one of the top ten essayists in The School for Ethical Education’s (SEE) 2019-20 Laws of Life Essay Contest. Her essay, My Strength-The Importance of Initiative, was one of only 10 essays to be recognized from more than 2,500 essayists who participated this year.
Jiali is an English Learner, and she worked incredibly hard on this essay. It’s a beautiful tribute to her mother’s tenacity and perseverance as a Chinese immigrant. It’s also a wonderful example of the integrity and talent we have at Cross.
If you know Jiali, please reach out to her and congratulate her. She’s an incredibly modest kid, but she deserves recognition for this.

Fun Things to Do
I have a 8 year old a 7 year old a 4 year old and a 9 month old. The 3 older ones....I had them lay down on 3 huge posterboard and traced the outline of there whole body. Then we colored them in and used colored paper to make the hair. The kids LOVED IT!!
I used 2 posterboard for the 4 year old. Taped them together with clear tape on both sides. The only problem I had was when they tried coloring over the clear tape. Next time I will use masking tape. They can color on that.
