The ERHS Link Crew plans to give freshman the last taste of what student life is all about during a carnival on Thursday, April 27th.

The carnival starts at 7:30 a.m. and ends at 2:55 p.m. inside the stadium area, according to Warrior Activity Director Kelley DeBernardi.

The program, which is designed to help new freshman transition into high school successfully, featured several events including orientations, student mentors, question and answer sessions and other activities throughout the year.

"Link Crew gives upperclassmen an amazing opportunity to connect with freshman students in a very unique way. Freshman students get to see that older students really do want to build a relationship. The most crucial part of Link Crew is that the Link Leaders get to mentor the students that will be taking our place when we graduate and we try to build a sense of pride in them about being a Righetti Warrior." – Gabby Hendrickson, 12th grade Link Leader

There are 21 Link Crew Leaders and about 500 freshman students.
