Freshman LINK Day

This past Saturday, 80 freshmen from both Unami and Tamanend joined in unity to participate in Link to Unity at CB South High School. The morning was completely planned and led by CB South LINK leaders. The activities were designed to get Freshmen excited to become members of LINK when they arrive next year, acclimate them with the building, and help develop friendships and leadership while having fun. Mrs. Leatherbarrow was so proud of all present and former students who participated. She said she wished every student could participate in L2U.
