We are very excited to announce the Link Talent Show, taking place on Friday, May 3 at Mead Jr. High. We had 40 acts audition to be part of the show, and each one of them showcased such unique talent! This year’s talent show will spotlight 14 acts and an epic choir.

We hope you can join us at 6:30PM at Mead Jr. High to see the Link talent on display.

We are looking forward to connecting with families at our second round of student-led conferences on Thursday, February 14 and Friday, February 15. Since our conferences are student-led, we ask that students attend so they can share with parents their progress in academic and social emotional areas, as well as goals they have set for the remainder of the 2019 school year. Teachers will also be sharing their insights and establishing areas of focus to bridge home and school support.
Please remember that our school day schedule is adjusted to accommodate these conferences. Thursday, February 14 will be a half-day of school with a dismissal time of 11:40. Also, there is no school on Friday, February 15.

We had an amazing time at our all school field trip last week to support Feed My Starving Children! Our theme this year is Show Up Together, and Friday’s field trip was a perfect picture of how powerful it is when we work together to make the world a better place. From the students passionately packing meals, to the staff who coordinated so many details, to the parents who volunteered their time, to our PTA for sponsoring the cost of transportation to make this field trip free for everyone- Link School truly showed up together!
