WEB APPLICATION EXTENSION

WEB, which stands for “Where Everybody Belongs” is a middle school orientation and transition program that welcomes 6th graders and makes them feel comfortable throughout the first year of their middle school experience. Built on the belief that students can help students succeed, the program trains mentors from your 8th grade class to be WEB Leaders. As positive role models, 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.




This program is an awesome way to help the 6th graders navigate through our school and we need DATA students to help create their first year amazing!


If you think you would make an awesome WEB Leader and want to join our team, please fill out the form below! Applications are due: May 22nd.
