Linking 9th graders to Success
The San Lorenzo High School Rebel XD Link Crew program is built upon the idea of a community helping its newest members learn the ins and outs of high school in order to be socially and personally successful, and academically informed. The SLz Link Crew program trains 11th and 12th grade students to assist and support 9th graders in the transition from middle to high school.
Link Crew is a freshman transition program, leadership training program, and a school community-building program. Our purpose is to empower junior and seniors as role models for freshmen, to increase freshman success through supportive peers, to develop leadership skills in students on campus, and help create a supportive atmosphere at SLz.
The leadership building class meets Tuesday and Thursday from 3:30 – 4:30. Additional work days will be added as needed to complete preparation for events. In coordination with our leadership building goal, our Link Leaders will be actively involved in visiting freshman advisory classes on a weekly basis. While these activities happen during the school day, the preparation for advisory occurs after school.
This program is led by Seana Flowers, John Giang and Tanny Hoffmann. Please contact them if you have questions.
2015-2016 Link Leaders
Just a reminder that because of the change in CPT times for staff, Link Crew class is now on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Sign in days for athletes and people with jobs will remain the same.
Make contact with your freshies and make sure to document the time spent on your November calendar (pink). You are aiming for two contacts each month. If you make an attempt and they ignore you, just document that you tried, when, and how.
December 2nd- Advisory Visit (Your Freshman Year- what you know now that you wish you had known then).
December 3rd- We are taking our group Yearbook Picture. Since you will need to wear your shirt on the 2nd, just BRING it to school on Thursday and put it on for out picture. If you do not yet have a shirt, we will loan you a hoodie.
If you are a sophomore or junior, consider joining Link Crew next year.
We're looking for people who want to help freshmen.
That's really the important quality.
