Crew is a culture where everyone feels welcomed, trusted, and supported, and knows that they belong. CREW, which was developed by EL Education, dedicates a portion of every day to make sure this positive culture develops. The structure for developing positive relationships will focus on each student's social, emotional, physical and academic needs.
“Community … is a place in which students feel cared about and are encouraged to care about each other. They experience a sense of being valued and respected; the children matter to one another and the teacher. They feel connected to each other; they are part of an “us.” --Alfie Kohn
