Welcome 9th Grade Families!

WELCOME to the VIKING FAMILY!

We are very excited that your scholar will be attending Rainier Beach High School and we look forward to meeting your scholar during our Virtual 9th Grade Orientation on Tuesday, August 31st. Our school participates in the nationwide Link Crew Program, an organization whose sole purpose is to help 9th grade students feel more comfortable as well as help them achieve success in their first year of high school.

The RB Link Crew Virtual 9th grade orientation and transition program is designed to both welcome and support 9th graders by assigning them a junior or senior Link Leader as a mentor during this first year. This Link Leader is a responsible older scholar who was hand selected from a large pool of applicants and has met the qualifications of being a good role model and a positive leader at RBHS.   

Below, please find the links to access this virtual event.  We will have 2 sessions assigned by your scholar’s last name.  If you have any tech issues, need a device, etc., please contact our Link Crew Advisors, Ms. Dugas (adfox@seattleschools.org) or Ms. Wedgwood (gmwedgwood@seattleschools.org).  There is currently a delay in laptop distribution, but please know that we are working hard to get updated laptops to your scholar before school starts.  They can also use their personal phone or tablet devices to join the TEAMS link.
