Link Crew leaders at St. Mary’s College are dedicated, committed, and undoubtedly, a keen representation of enthusiasm and spirit. Through an application process, sixty-four students were selected. Training for the Link Crew Leaders occurred during the last week of August by nine teacher mentors: Mr. Czop, Mrs. Czop, Mrs. Cook, Mrs. Pedinelli, Mrs. Grancic, Mrs. Rosso, Mrs. Garson, Mr. Oliveira and Mr. D. Zagordo. On Orientation Day, Link Crew welcomed grade nine students with enthusiasm and demonstrated spirit and kindness that SMC is known for. “Getting to know you” activities, a tour of the school, helping tackle locks and visiting their homeroom, made grade nine students feel more comfortable and at ease about beginning high school. Welcome Week, organized by Student Council, gave Link leaders and their groups the opportunity to get to know one another even better. Throughout the school year, Link Crew continued to mentor their grade nine groups with social and academic check-ins. continues to make a difference!
