Linking 9th Graders: Here's What We Do

Link Crew students are challenged to come up with ideas, and then they, as a group, plan, develop and execute their ideas. We have asked them to try and figure out what the freshmen need and how best to serve these needs. For example, a Link Leader thought that freshmen needed relationship information. As a result, Link Crew went into advisory classes for Healthy Relationships Week and lead each class in a program highlighting what positive relationships look like in various settings.

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.

Upcoming Events

In November:  

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.


In December:

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.

Our Mission

Link Crew is an organization that uses teamwork, communication and leadership skills to positively influence 9th graders. Our goals are: to become informed about what freshman need, help them realize that they have options so that they can learn to take pride in themselves and their abilities, influence 9th graders to respect themselves, think for themselves and respect others, and to help 9th graders to become comfortable making new friends and trying new things. We want freshmen to be well informed, have confidence in themselves and us, and to have a positive and memorable year.
