Beckman High School's 2024-25 Link Cru Freshman Orientation

Each year, Beckman High School hosts a very memorable, impactful and FUN welcome event for our incoming 9th grade students called Freshmen Link Cru Orientation.  This year, our Freshmen Orientation will be on Tuesday, July 30th at Beckman High School and we would like to invite EVERY new 9th grade student who plans to attend BHS in the fall. 

Freshmen Link Cru Orientation is a 4 hour event that gives incoming 9th grade students the opportunity to:

  • Meet other Beckman students
  • Have fun & create memories
  • Get a personalized tour of our entire school
  • Receive guidance & mentorship on navigating high school
  • Hear about all that our school has to offer to get involved 

​**During orientation, each incoming freshmen student will be led by 2 incredible Link Cru Leaders (who are in the 11th/12th grade, have been trained and are very involved on campus)

Please note: There are 2 important events planned for incoming Beckman 9th grade students happening on two different days.

1. Link Cru Freshmen Orientation (Tuesday, July 30th) - ​See above for description of 4 hour event

2. 9th Grade Registration (Wednesday, July 31st) - this is a shorter event where students will receive their official registration, class schedules, receive laptops, sport sign-ups, etc.  Our front office will send more information about this event in a different email communication.

What to Bring

We will be providing all materials for students attending freshmen orientation.  Students do not need to bring anything specific to this event other than themselves.  If students want to bring a snack or drink for themselves, they are more than welcome to.

"Welcome to Beckman" Phone Calls Home (Monday, July 15th - Friday, July 19th)

As a tradition of Link Cru, each incoming 9th grade student will receive a personalized phone call from a Link Cru Leader starting on Mon. July 15th through Fri July 19th.  During this call, our upperclassmen leaders will be personally inviting 9th grade students to our orientation, explaining generally what orientation is, which session they are scheduled for, and make themselves available to answer any questions you/your student might have. 

If the parent/child is unable to answer the phone call, our upperclassmen leaders will be leaving a voicemail/message or text message with all of the details.
