Every year, Crane students and Staffulty are designated into families, which gather each month for a special Families Lunch.  The family is comprised of a few students of each grade, Kindergarten through Eighth Grade.  The eighth graders of the group are considered the “parents,” and they lead activities and discussions during the monthly meetings.

The goals of this program are to promote a strong sense of community, build inter-grade relationships, and give our eighth graders a special leadership role with significant responsibilities as "parents."
