What is LINK Crew?
LINK CREW is a high school transition program that welcomes new grade 10 students attending Henry Wise Wood High School and makes them feel comfortable throughout the first year of their high school experience. Our goal is to provide a structure in which students make real connections with each other thus increasing school safety and inclusion.
Our new Grade 10 students receive the star treatment! Each new Warrior Homeroom will be matched with two Link Leaders (Grade 11 and 12 students) who will take care of them as they move through the first year of high school. Our senior Warriors will act as positive role models, motivators, and mentors who help guide our Grade 10s as they discover what it takes to be successful in high school. Link Crews will meet on the first day of school and then regularly throughout the year, both during Link Blocks (in the timetable), at school events, and informally.
The Link Crew program benefits our Grade 10s by helping them to feel safe, informed, and connected. Link Leaders (Grade 11 and 12s) benefit through the leadership training they receive, and through the experience of mentorship. The whole school will benefit through a more supportive and positive school climate and culture. We are really excited to bring this program to our Warriors! If you have any questions regarding Link Crew, please contact Ms. Groat.

LINK CREW Leaders are mentors and student leaders who guide the new Grade 10 students to discover what it takes to be successful during the transition to high school and help facilitate Warrior success. Additionally, leaders provide fun and engaging connections for our grade 11 and 12 students to strengthen the Warrior community.
