Dear Link families and supporters,
This year marks our 41st year. Beginning as Project Link, a far reaching project of the Sisters of St. Dominic of Caldwell, New Jersey, and developing into Link Community School, an independent middle school uniquely positioned to change the lives of urban youth, we have indeed built a legacy and are ready to embark on a pivotal year for the school. This will be the last academic year we hold at 120 Livingston Street, the first year implementing our Middle States objectives, the year we delve into strategic planning and mapping out a course for school growth, including our move to a new home.
Despite these important endeavors which we will work on collaboratively, we will not lose sight of our primary mission—to deliver a powerful learning community built on a foundation of core values and academic success that best prepares our students for high school and beyond. We each have an important part to play in our mission. The faculty, students and parents each share a responsibility to nurture student success. The board and school leadership maintain our institutional strength and plan for the future. Donors and partners fuel our work with their time, talent and treasure. Together, the community is what makes Link and its students successful.
This year, we will call upon you to support not just the present Link but also the future Link, both driven by a powerful and living mission. School families and supporters laid the foundation for us and we must now do the same for the next generations of Linkers. I thank you for contributing to our legacy and am excited to build upon the vision of the Sisters of St. Dominic and chart a course for our future with you.
