Hello Families of the Class of 2018!
We are very excited that your child will be attending Roosevelt High School 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. Here at Roosevelt we call our Link Crew program RIDER CREW.
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 this 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 the orientation which will take place on Wednesday August 27th beginning at 8am in the main gym. We will be finished by noon.
1) A day or two before orientation your child will also receive a phone call from her or his Rider Crew Leader personally inviting your student to orientation day and giving the details of where to be and what time;
2) Your child is encouraged not to bring backpacks, purses or other like items as
the day is quite active;
3) Because the day is active, please make sure that your child wears comfortable
clothing that does not restrict movement.
This is a student only function so we encourage you to let your child attend on her or
his own. While this event is not mandatory, it is highly encouraged and we typically have a very high turnout.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
