Sophomores and Juniors: Interested in helping the Class of 2027 have a smoother transition to EHS next year?  The Link Crew program is looking for YOU!!

Link Crew Leaders are upperclassmen who are solid role models for incoming 9th grade students.  We are looking for responsible 10th and 11th graders with good communication skills and leadership potential who are willing to share the lessons they have learned that have allowed them to be successful at EHS.  YOU could have a tremendous impact on our new students, and you will learn many valuable leadership skills in the process.

Link Leaders are trained to work with and help the incoming freshmen class transition into high school.  If this sounds interesting to you, fill out an application right away (available in Schoology).  Applications are due by Thursday, March 23rd @ 3:00pm.  If you aren’t sure and would like to know more, please see Mrs. Mandell, Mrs. Calhoun, or Mr. Habowski for more details / information.
