Greetings from the trenches,

I wanted to share something that has made a noticeable difference on our
h.s. campus this year. We tried a new way of doing our Freshmen
Orientation. Instead of barraging them with rules, information and and long
boring tour, we tried a program called "Link Crew". It was designed to link
up two upperclassmen with ten freshmen beginning at the Freshmen
Orientation. It took some organizing, but was it ever worth it. The
freshmen are much more at ease and less confused. The campus climate is
much more relaxed (no fights yet). I would be happy to pass on the info
about the program and how it works to whom ever is interested. Suzette
