As you’ve certainly noticed in recent issues of Crossties, Varsity volleyball is off to an outstanding start with a 10-0 record. Their success has a lot to do with Head Coach Terri Craig’s seasoned coaching methods, but also the dedicated and skilled players themselves. Coach Craig's recipe for success takes the four returning Raider players, adds in a splash of spice with a transferring junior and sprinkles the top with two very energetic eighth graders, creating what will now be known as the “Super Seven.” The addition of the new players into a team of veterans is the key to this year’s strong domination.
Among the many forms parents had to fill out at the beginning of the school year may have included the Extended Day paperwork necessary for us to retain our certification from the Department of Social Services (DSS). But retaining this status requires much more than paperwork. Recently DSS did an on-site review of the North Cross Extended Day program and we are happy to report we passed with flying colors, thanks in large part to Director Daryan Horner and Assistant Director Rhea Rupert and their dedicated and caring staff: William Langhorn, Hollie Martin, Emily Beard and Micah Giraudeau, with three substitutes on hand as numbers and absences require.
