Crew is two things:
It is a structure. A group of students who meet together to support each other and push each other in school, and life.
It is a spirit, a way of being. To be “Crew” means to pitch in to help each other, to step up and take responsibility for everyone’s well being around you.
So what exactly does it mean to be Crew?
Crew in School
Crew is a ritual, a coming together, and the creation of a close-knit student community. Crew is a place where character education, adventure, and team building are intentional, assuring success for all students. It’s a structure that fosters a sense of belonging within students, and a place where they can be their best selves while lifting up their peers to achieve more than they think possible.
Each student is known well by at least one adult within the school. One structure for developing this relationship—and supporting students socially, emotionally, and academically—is crew.
The structure of crew allows for relationship building and character development. Crew allows students to build positive connections with their peers and with their crew leader. Crew leaders strategically plan crew to address and assess these multiple goals. Multi-year relationships are also forged in other school structures (e.g., multi-age crews, all- school community crew meetings) to ensure that students’ needs are met and individual strengths are discovered.
