September 6, 2023 — The Link Team was eager for 98 Link Crew leaders to come together on August 27 for training to lead the eighth grade Welcome Orientation held on the morning of August 30. All eighth-grade students were either picked up by school bus transportation or were dropped off at the high school for the events that morning.
The 8th grade class and Link Leaders came in with energy and enthusiasm, which led to a very positive, upbeat orientation morning. The leaders were genuinely excited to welcome the eighth grade Class of 2028 to MWHS. All leaders wore their Link Crew T-shirts at both orientation and on the first day of school to help eighth graders and all new students to MWHS find their classes, open lockers, and begin to feel comfortable at their new school.
Link Crew leaders will continue to meet with eighth and ninth graders monthly during WIN on Thursday afternoons with their first time together on September 21. This time is intended to support the whole student during his or her high school transition, looking at education and connection beyond the traditional classroom.
“MWHS is dedicated to building community connections and a positive school culture,” said advisor Jen Bormes. “Link Leaders have committed to their crews as they also work on building and developing their own leadership skills.”
