CREW (Creating Relationships Exploring Within)
All students and teachers are part of CREW. CREW directs the course of learning – literally taking the wheel. As with a crew on a ship, students will not just be “along for the ride.” They are responsible for where the journey leads. Through teamwork students not only grow as learners, but as a people too.
Students are part of an 18-20 student “CREW” that meets each day throughout the school year. CREW experiences are supervised by a CREW LEADER. CREW LEADERs facilitate daily activities but do not drive them. In CREW, all have leadership opportunities as part of a team.
The purpose of CREW is to help develop life skills including confidence, responsibility, respect, honesty, communication, and personal and academic drive. It provides students with a safe place to explore, share, create, make mistakes, reflect, learn, prepare, and celebrate. The small size of CREW helps students connect with their CREW LEADER and fellow classmates on a personal and positive level. Forming bonds and relationships build community and guide overall academic success at River Bluff High School.
During CREW, students work on:
➢ Building relationships
➢ Strengthening literacy
➢ Providing service
➢ Exploring adventure and fitness opportunities
➢ Preparing for college or post-secondary careers
➢ Handling school business
Students are not passengers; in CREW students are part of a family that re-defines what it means to be a learning community that truly supports and challenges one another at River Bluff High School.
