From the Principal

Join Cross Hill Academy in Raising Readers! 

Pledge to read with your child(ren) at home 20 minutes everyday. This simple act helps children reach their full potential, finding success in school and in life.

In addition, eBooks are available through our school Library Program. Go to www.yonkerspublicschools.org, and follow these three steps:

1. Click on the Library Resources Icon - (On right side of page)
2. Click on Elementary Resources tab to view all district databases, which includes eBooks and reference sources 
3. Click on Destiny eCatalog and Resources tab to read eBooks in Follett Shelf (On left side of page). Many eBooks are Interactive and have audio capabilities. Students will need to login:

Username: 6 digit student ID#  Password: student                             

I BELIEVE in all of you and this year each of you will experience how much CHA BELIEVES in you, too. All that will be left is to BELIEVE in yourself!

Wishing you a Happy and Healthy New Year!

Sincerely,
Brian S. Gray
Principal of Cross Hill Academy
