Crew is a Charles School core practice that brings our community together to promote shared understandings and encourage all community members to become Crew, not passengers.  Crew is a vehicle for developing and supporting students socially, emotionally and academically.  It is also an engine for equity and inclusion, a place where all students feel they belong and can succeed.

We have expanded this work to include Family Crews to engage and connect our families with our Crew culture. This year we are hosting 5 evening Family Crew sessions and offering an accompanying Family Crew workbook. Join us on May 11!

All 2021 Family Crew Dates: January 26; February 23; March 23; April 20; May 11
