Link Crew Freshmen Orientation 2019
We are excited that your child will be attending De La Salle Collegiate and we look forward to meeting your student on Orientation Day. As you may know, our school participates in the nationwide Link Crew Program, an organization whose sole purpose is to help freshmen feel more comfortable as well as help them achieve success in their first year of high school.
The Link Crew freshman orientation and transition program is designed to both welcome and support freshmen by assigning them a junior or senior Link Leader as a mentor during his first year. This Link Leader is a responsible older student who was hand selected from a large pool of applicants and has met the qualifications of being a good role model and a positive leader on our campus. Following is some information to let you know what you and your student can expect in advance of their first day of school.
- Upon arrival please have your son sit in the Commons until a Link Crew Leader escorts them down to the Bill Fox Gymnasium for the Link Crew activities. Start time is 8 a.m.
- Because the day is active, please make sure that your students wears comfortable clothing (shorts) with their school approved De La Salle uniform polo. Tennis shoes will only be allowed for orientation. There will be activities where your student will be moving around and that is why we want him to be comfortable.
We look forward to meeting your son on orientation day!
