Freshmen orientation at Manteca High is scheduled Monday from 8:30 to noon at Winter Gymnasium.

This is where Link Crew students – mostly juniors and seniors – are matched with a ninth-grade student for the entire year.

The goal is to connect that freshman with someone who can help answer questions while making him or her apart of the high school process early on. “We want to provide (freshmen) with the right atmosphere to succeed during their four years at MHS,” said Social Studies teacher Nina Norton.
