Back to School Supply List


We are excited to be gearing up for the new year. CFA Supply List 2016-17 for the supply list for next year. Except for personal items, all supplies belong to the class community. Although we are asking for your help in assisting in purchasing supplies, please do so according to your budget. Together as a community, we will ensure that all classrooms are adequately stocked. Thank you for your help and support.

School Re-Opens – Wednesday, Sept. 7, 2016


  • Deposits Paid.  ALL families MUST pay a deposit this year unlike last year (unless you are on a voucher).  The main reason is that the school must pay 3 months rent up front as a part of the contract, and the family deposits are necessary to ensure that obligation is met.
  • Signed contracts submitted.  There must be a signed contract on file prior to the start of school.
  • Signed voucher agreements submitted. If your child is on a voucher, there is an additional voucher agreement that must be signed and submitted to Cross Factor.  If you have not received a copy, please contact Jasmine Francis.
  • First payment made. If you are on a monthly plan, your August payment must be received prior to the start of school. Full payment families must pay their contracted amount by the date indicated as well.  Voucher parent fees or weekly payments must be paid NO LATER than the Monday morning of the week charged.
  • Prior balances paid. All families having a prior year’s balance must have that balance paid in full prior to the start of school.

Afterschool


The goal of the Cross Factor Math and Science Enrichment Series is to create a culture of balance between structured hands on problem-solving, where students are willing to become makers building projects and skills while also completing analytical work in an environment that is supportive and mastery based and patient enough to allow students to make mistakes in order to thrive on challenges. Hands-on projects are given to excite and motivate students while giving them skills needed for college level work.

* In addition, our afterschool program (4 pm – 5:15 pm) will be an additional cost. Extended care (5:15 pm – 6 pm) and Before Care (7:30 am – 8:15 am) is still $5 per each event, and you will be invoiced at the end of the week.  Please contact cdixon@crossfactor.org if you desire to roll these costs into your contract.

STEM Education


According to Connections Learning’s report “STEM EDUCATION: Preparing Students for a Growing Field”

“From a purely economic standpoint, students benefit from better STEM education because the fields are expanding more quickly than any other besides the healthcare industry. By 2018, 1 in 20 global jobs will be STEM-related—an estimated 2.8 million jobs in total. Over 90% of those opportunities will require secondary degrees, and over two-thirds will require a bachelor’s degree. “

Available Now


“U.S. students lag behind their foreign counterparts in STEM education, particularly
those in India and East Asia. But perhaps more troublingly, even those American students with STEM interest and talent report declining achievement due to lack of resources. According to the New York Times, 75% of high-achieving math and science students decide not to pursue STEM subjects in college. A 2011 Georgetown University report on the most popular American college majors found that only two of the top ten(Engineering and Computer Science) were in STEM fields.1 And even the three most popular STEM majors—Biology, Computer Science, and Engineering— have fallen in popularity among American undergraduates over the last three decades.
