Welcome to Hall’s Cross Roads Elementary School, a historic landmark in Harford County. Hall’s Cross Roads continues to be a learning hub of the Aberdeen community. The school community is dedicated to educating and inspiring all to become responsible citizens who learn, lead, and achieve. Supported by a high-quality staff, we draw strength from our diverse community and continue to work together to unite our students, families, and community partners. Our school focus continues to be creating differentiated learning experiences that produce high levels of achievement for all students. It is our mission to work harder, think bigger, and aim higher.
We aim to improve instruction in the areas of language arts and mathematics and differentiating instruction to meet the individual needs of each student. With the additional support and resources from Title I, we are able to provide our students with a full-time math specialist, reading specialist, and gifted and talented teacher. We are fortunate to have a full-time mentor teacher who provides support and additional resources for all new and master teachers. We are also able to provide research-based interventions to students who need additional support, as well as research-based professional development to our highly qualified staff. We are proud to be Title I!
This year, we will continue moving ahead at a rapid pace to incorporate high levels of technology in more classrooms. We currently have virtual white boards and televisions mounted in every classroom to support instruction. In addition, we have added document cameras to teacher workstations and have two mobile wireless laptop labs for use in classrooms. We also continue to use assistive technology, such as FM sound systems and digital cameras to augment learning opportunities in many classrooms celebrating the multiple intelligences and learning styles of all our students. With innovative scheduling, teachers are given intentional time each day for planning and examining student work. Our work with PBIS (Positive Behavioral Intervention and Support) combined with the Baldrige process-driven approach has involved the entire school community in the school improvement process while offering opportunities to enhance our teaching techniques.
With great excitement and a passion for teaching and learning, we expect continued progress and success for all students. We are excited about continuing to offer the best elementary educational program possible for our students.
