CREWS

No other school does what we do. Each CREW is expected to sponsor a community service project, through a Charity Challenge, which will be completed together during the course of the school year. As students earn Merits for good behavior, points are also awarded to their CREW. At the end of the year, the CREW with the highest number of points is awarded the CREW Championship.

CREWs can also earn points as students receive recognition for achievement (i.e. honor roll, Eagle Award, Merit Olympiad), participation in Charity Challenges and Dean Challenges, as well as collecting Labels for Education (Campbell’s), and Box Tops for Education. Parents can also earn points for their children’s CREWs through their volunteerism; as parents receive their Olympiad awards, 100 points are granted to their children’s CREWs.
