Tackling Decimals, Action Verbs & More



There was learning going on in every direction at Saturday Cru Club this past weekend. As usual, Crusaders filled up five whole classrooms at Johnson & Wales University’s Harborside Campus. Sixth graders in our Math Matters class were working on understanding decimal places, guided by teacher Paula McKenna. Down the hall, another class of middle school Crusaders was engaged in a lively discussion with instructors Lindsay Carreiro and Rahja Laster about how to make their creative writing better. Use interesting action verbs! When they finished their lesson, they read aloud from the novel Letters from Rifka, by Karen Hesse. Meanwhile groups of high school Crusaders gathered separately to talk with College Crusade Advisory staff, analyze short stories and poems, and study topics in financial literacy.

Each week, dozens of Crusaders in grades 6 to 12 attend Saturday Cru Club, which gets you involved in many different kinds of subject matter, from academics and life skills to career speakers. Special programs are also included, such as an upcoming series of workshops for high school Crusaders to be offered by Jeff Gardner, a quality engineer for Amgen. Hooray for all the Crusaders who come ready to learn and contribute on Saturdays. And thank you to Johnson & Wales University for being such a generous host of Saturday Cru Club!

We also want to thank all our wonderful Saturday Cru Club instructors: Lindsay Carreiro, Mayamu Kamara, Rahja Laster, Paula McKenna, David Miya, Chanravy Proeung, and Adam Tarczuk.
