Wednesday, Sept. 2, was back to school day for kids all the way from first graders at Cascade View Elementary School, to Seniors at Mount Si High School.

Early that morning the Freshman Campus of Mount Si High School started the orientation of all the new students coming into high school for the first time. They started by splitting into groups, introducing themselves and coming up with a chant for the assembly. Once everyone was acquainted, all the students were called to the gym for an assembly where every group performed their Wildcat chant, watched a video about bullying and were introduced to the schools schedule.

The Link Crew, a group of upperclass students at Mount Si High School, lead the freshman groups and helped the morning run smoothly as well as gave a warm welcome to the new students.

Corinne Immel, Counselor at Mount Si High School, said that she was very proud of the Link Crew students that morning.

“The Juniors and Seniors showed pride in their school today while focusing the kids and being as flexible as possible,” Immel said.

Associate Principal Vernie Newell also expressed his happiness with their work.

“The Link Crew really did an outstanding job that engaged freshman,” Newell said.
