This is a great opportunity to develop leadership skills and work together with peers to implement ideas to make the middle school a better place for all.

WEB ("Where Everybody Belongs") is a middle school orientation and transition program that welcomes 5th 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 5th graders to discover what it takes to be successful during the transition to middle school and help facilitate 5th grade success.
Middle school students meet weekly to learn and teach each other strategy and continue to improve their critical thinking and problem solving skills. The facilitator helps monitor play and gives suggestions to help students elevate their game.
