Cool Schools Segment!
To all 2016-2017 Link Crew Members!
Congratulations for choosing to be a link crew leader and committing to ensuring the success of our incoming huskies! We look forward to an awesome year. Thank you to everyone who has turned in their code of conducts on time and signed up for Remind 101. You are ready to go!
As a reminder, one of the requirements of being a link leader is committing to attending all the training dates and Link Crew events. I know we all have busy schedules and juggling can be a challenge at times, but in order for a successful program and consistency in leading our freshmen teams, we must adhere to the 100% attendance policy (please see application and your code of conduct). Please remember to mark down the following mandatory Link Crew dates (also on your application and code of conduct).
We look forward to an awesome year with all of you!
Ms. Robertson, Mrs. Tabor, Ms. Regester, and Mrs. Pollnow
What is LINK CREW?
Even when students feel safe and informed, they may not successfully transition into a new school if they do not develop a sense of connection. In every transition in our lives we need to feel a sense of connection to the new situation. This is true whether we are connecting to a new job, a new child, or a new reality in our own lives.
The more connected students are to their new school, the better they will do in all the measures that are important in tracking their success: grades, test scores, attendance, and discipline. All these measures are positively affected when students are connected.
Schools try to promote this crucial component of transition by offering co-curricular activities, athletics, and special events in the hopes that kids will connect. Unlike the two other components to a successful transition, this one is left to chance. Even the most robust co-curricular programs only involve a percentage of the students.
Link Crew creates a structure that connects every incoming freshman with a caring upperclassman from their first day through the end of their freshman year.
