WEB-Where Everybody Belongs
WEB Leaders are mentors and student leaders who guide the 6th graders to discover what it takes to be successful during the transition to middle school and help facilitate 6th grade success.
WEB is a yearlong transition program with four components:
- ORIENTATION: WEB Leaders and 6th graders start building the mentor relationship and receive information about how to be successful in middle school.
- ACADEMIC FOLLOW UPS: WEB Leaders support 6th grade academic success and character development through class visits.
- SOCIAL FOLLOW UPS: WEB Leaders and 6th graders connect outside the classroom at social events to increase student engagement and promote positive school climate.
- LEADER INITIATED CONTACTS: WEB Leaders connect with their 6th graders on a more individual basis.
