LINK CREW APPLICATIONS
Link Crew is a high school transition program for freshmen. Built on the belief that students can help other students succeed, the Link Crew program trains mentors from the junior and senior classes to be Link Crew Leaders. As positive role models, Link Crew Leaders guide freshmen to discover what it takes to be successful during the transition to high school.
Link Crew provides the structure for freshmen to receive support and guidance from juniors and seniors who have been through the challenges that high school poses, and understand that the transition to a larger school can sometimes be overwhelming.
Does this sound like a program you would be interested in? See Mrs. Walls in room 223 to pick up a CHS Link Crew applications for the 2014-2015 school year. Only current sophomores and juniors may apply.
