Canoe Crew: Lewis & Clark's 5th Grade
Meaningful Work Program
Lewis & Clark staff members feel strongly about creating opportunities for students to find purpose and a sense of belonging within the school. Meaningful Work is a school-based program that allows students to succeed as leaders and contributors. The fifth graders are taking advantage of such opportunities by being part of the Lewis & Clark Canoe Crew.
The Canoe Crew is a group of students who have been hired for helping positions within the school building. These students learn about the job process by reading job postings, filling out an application and interviewing for the job of their choice. Most jobs are done before school each morning.
We have had as many as 151 students employed in 177 positions such as Custodial Assistant, Office Assistant, Teacher Assistant, Library Assistant, Office Housekeeper, Camera Crew, Technology Crew, Crossing Guard, Assembly Assistants, Substitutes, Flag Raisers, Delivery Persons, Copier Technicians, Popcorn Crew, and Tutors.
