Link Crew is a high school transition program that welcomes freshmen and makes them feel comfortable throughout the first year of their high school experience. Built on the belief that students can help students succeed, Link Crew trains members of the junior and senior class to be Link Leaders. As positive role models, Link Leaders are motivators, leaders and teachers who guide the freshmen to discover what it takes to be successful during the transition to high school.
Link Crew increases freshmen success; more and more studies are showing that if students have a positive experience their first year in high school, their chances for success are exponential. The Link Crew high school transition program provides the structure for freshmen to receive support and guidance from juniors and seniors who have been through the challenges that high school poses, and understand that the transition to a larger school can sometimes be overwhelming.
Link Crew's goal is to provide your schools with a structure in which students make real connections with each other. Through this program, students learn that people at school care about them and their success. Link Crew is the high school transition program that will increase attendance, decrease discipline referrals and improve academic performance at your school.
Yearlong connections make Link Crew effective; a 1998 study cited by the National Association of Secondary School Principals found that 6-8 contacts in a year are necessary in order to establish a relationship that truly makes a difference. The Link Crew freshman transition program provides your school with the structured formula that makes it possible to maintain yearlong connections that affect change on your campus.
Academic Follow Ups, give Link Leaders the opportunity to visit freshmen classes several times throughout the year. During these visits, Link Leaders teach structured lessons on topics such as using your available resources, time management, and achieving excellence. The power of these Follow Up Lessons comes from the fact that younger students are learning from the older students who have had a variety of experiences, successes and challenges.
Social Follow Ups are organized social events in which Link Leaders and freshmen reconnect several times a year in order to strengthen the relationships that were established at orientation. Social Follow Ups are organized and facilitated by the coordinator, in conjunction with the leaders, and may include activities such as going to school sporting events, eating lunches together, or attending a campus movie night.
Leader Initiated Contacts happen outside of the structured activities and are another way for Link Leaders and their freshmen to connect. Link Leaders make personal contact with their freshmen through phone calls and visits on campus in order to develop the personal relationship that will allow the Leader to be a support throughout the year.
Link Crew lives on your campus, supporting the freshmen throughout the year, in more than these three ways. The Link Crew freshman transition program also guides freshmen toward academic and social success in high school by providing structures for tutoring, acknowledgement of student achievement and peer counseling.

Beyond Curriculum - National Art Honor Society
Art extends beyond the classroom at EHS, through the National Art Honor
Society (NAHS), an honor and service organization sponsored by the National
Art Education Association. EHS and its two sister schools host three of
the dozen or so Minnesota chapters of NAHS. Students become members of NAHS
by invitation, having met national standards. A few examples of NAHS activities
include the following:
- Painting an exterior mural at Glacier Hills Elementary School
- Painting of advertisements for the baseball outfield wall
- Doing backdrops and set paintings for various EHS television and theater
productions, including Encore" and "Music Man"
- Teaching at the Zoo
- Visiting the St. Olaf College Art department during their High School
- Attending a workshop at Minneapolis College of Art and Design as part
of the Scholastic Arts Awards Program
- Wall painting at the Eagan Ice Arena and at the Eagan Police Department
- Face painting at a variety of community events
NAHS students love to share their enthusiasm and talent in Art and welcome
opportunities to serve the community. Each year the students raise scholarship
money to be offered, through the Eagan Foundation, to one NAHS student who
plans to pursue a career in Art. Students may earn an EHS letter in Art
by accumulating NAHS service hours.
