WEB - Where Everyone Belongs

  • At TBMS we want students to feel welcome and connected to their school. WEB is a club that consists of 7th & 8th grade students helping ease the transition to middle school for incoming 6th graders and any new student attending TBMS for the first time.

  • During August, our WEB Crew will work directly with students and staff in the 6th grade Summer Bridge Program. The focus is on helping our 6th graders transition to middle school and become more comfortable with what 6th grade and middle school will be like at TBMS.

  • Once school starts, our WEB Crew will be meeting once a month to plan classroom visits, lunch time games/events, and welcome any and all new students to TBMS.

  • Dates for the classrooms visits, game and events will be coming soon.

  • If you have any questions, please fell free to contact Mrs. Hollis, our school counselor, at whollis@wpusd.k12.ca.us.
