Lift Crew is Looking for New Members

By Kierra Jones

Hey Whetstone Braves, are you interested in the lift crew? The lift crew is to make a positive change in the school and help out our freshman. Our school is accepting experienced juniors and seniors of 2019-20 to join the crew.

You are trained to work with incoming freshman as well as other new students entering our school next year. You will also be able to learn valuable leadership skills. You will be responsible for working with a small group of students during orientation, befriending the students and helping them overcome any challenges during their first few weeks, and meeting with a group periodically throughout the year to touch base and discuss problems and plan social activities.

The most important dates you will need to know are:

*Introduction to Lift is Thursday May 31 @11am

*Crew meeting August 15th and 16th

* You will be running the freshman orientation before school starts August 22nd

Joing the lift crew can help incoming students get out of their shell and feel welcomed into the school.

I highly recommend you to be apart of the lift crew because it shows that you can prove you have a high rate of leadership and pride in our school.

“ I came into the school not knowing anybody because all of my friends went to different schools but with the help of the lift crew, I were able to come out of my shell and bond with students from all over the city”- Michael

Application deadline is Tuesday May 28th.
