What is CREW?

CREW is a non-profit that helps young people achieve their best in school and in life by providing mentoring at school. CREW stands for Courage, Resilience, Empowerment, and Wellbeing and is the first school-based mentoring program in Santa Rosa. Carefully selected adult mentors supported mentees for a two-year commitment. CREW trains these adult mentors spend at least an hour a week with their mentees in CREW center, located on our school campus (room 18). All mentors are screened, fingerprinted, trained and monitored during the mentoring time. CREW's goal is providing another caring adult in these students' lives.

Our CREW program manager is Lyn Romstad. She has created, organized, set up, and started recruiting mentors for CREW. She has been working with ECC to be a part of their 501c3 status and their board just approved the partnership this week.

If you would like more information, please contact Lyn at

Music News

The music students put on some fabulous performances this past week. What a great way to wind down the school year! If you missed them, there is one more performance this Saturday, May 11 at Montgomery Village at 2 p.m. Only advanced violins, advanced guitars, band, and chorus will be performing.

After Saturday, Mrs. Kaufman will be directing her energies toward repairing and cleaning instruments, so please make sure borrowed instruments are returned ASAP as well as violin and band books. Mrs. Kaufman will also prepare all 6th-graders for performing the Green Day song "Time of Your Life" at their Promotion Ceremony on May 31. Any musicians who are interested in playing the song on their instrument should watch for the flyer with the practice schedule on it--to be sent home soon. Also, have a wonderful summer, and keep playing!
