WHERE EVERYBODY BELONGS
Our school's 8th grade WEB Leaders will be trained in team building activities, cooperative skill development, and discussion skills. Each of these WEB Leaders then recieves a list of 10 5th graders to telephone and personally invite to the orientation, to work with at orientation, and to stay in touch throughout the school year. They become leaders, motivators, role models and teachers.
WEB IS A SCHOOL COMMUNITY BUILDING PROGRAM
Our school climate will change because of WEB. WEB is based on a simple concept: Connecting 5th graders with successful 8th graders. While creating a sense of comfort for the incoming students, the WEB concept also addresses the attitudes of the 8th graders toward the 5th graders, and respect for 5th graders becomes the norm.
