School Goals

In the spring of 2010, Holy Cross identified writing as a goal area.  During the 2010-2011 school year, staff researched best practices, and began inservice training on 6-Traits.   Inservice continued during the 2011-2012 and 12-13 school years.  Teachers worked to create common rubrics and practices to help our students become even stronger writers.
