At the same time, parents will join our Enrollment Manager, Ms. Kristen Mallon and Mrs. Mary Murphy, Director of Advancement for a Meet and Greet/Q & A session. Coffee and breakfast pastries will be served.

LINK Crew Orientation

This will be the initial meeting for all freshmen where they will meet Link Crew Leaders (juniors and seniors at SDA.) Link Crew is a year long transition program with four components that contribute to its success:

  • High School Orientation- Link Leaders and freshmen start building the mentor relationship and freshmen receive information about how to be successful in high school
  • Academic Follow Ups- Link Leaders support freshman academic success and character development through structured classroom visits
  • Social Follow Ups- Link Leaders and freshmen connect outside the classroom at social events to increase student engagement, and promote positive school climate
  • Leader Initiated Contacts- Link Leaders connect with their freshmen on a more individual basis

Parent’s Lite Supper Social
Thursday, September 12

Parents and guardians are invited to join us for a light dinner and friendly conversation. This event is sponsored by the Parents Association and will be followed by our annual Back to School Night.

More info to follow later in the summer.

We hope to see you at these Class of 2023 orientations!
