LINK-UP is a transition program designed to provide support to our rising sixth graders as they enter middle school. Each student is assigned a mentor who is a seventh grade student. These mentors meet their assigned students at our spring orientation activities as fifth graders, continue to contact them through the summer, and touch base with the students at the beginning of the school year. Students are encouraged to offer help and assistance by answering questions and building relationships that make our sixth grade students feel secure and successful.
