|The Link Crew grade nine orientation (F.I.T. – Future Invader Tour) and transition program is designed to both welcome and support grade nines by assigning them a senior student 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 at our school. Following is some information to let you know what you and your student can expect in advance of their first day of school.A few days before orientation (Thursday, August 28, 2014), your child will also receive a phone call from his or her Link Crew Leader personally inviting your student to orientation day and giving the details of where to be and what time. Your student is encouraged not to bring backpacks, purses or other items as the day is quite active. Because the day is active, please make sure that your student 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. Please feel free, however, to attend the PARENT MEETING that morning: Library Start time, 8:30 a.m. The meeting will last about 45 minutes. We look forward to meeting you and your student on F.I.T. – Future Invader Tour day!
