WEB Where Everybody Belongs
WEB is an acronym for Where Everybody Belongs.
WEB's goal is to provide a structure in which students make real connections with each other. Through this program students learn that people at school care about them and their success.
Built on the belief that students want to and can help other students succeed, the WEB middle school transition program trains members of the 8th grade class to be WEB Leaders. As positive role models, WEB Leaders are motivators, leaders and teachers who guide 6th graders to discover what it takes to be successful in middle school.
