The WEB Program, which stands for Where Everybody Belongs, is a program that welcomes the 6th Grade class on the first day of school as well as continues to support them throughout their first year of middle school. A 7th Grade student is chosen to be an 8th grade WEB Leader because they have been identified as a person on campus who is a positive role model, responsible, possesses leadership qualities, is kind and, most importantly, has a desire to give back to their school community.
We are in the process of recruiting leaders for next year and are very excited about the flurry of interest already. We had two short informational meetings on April 19 and 20 during Advisory. Interested 7th graders learned about the program and picked up an application to be involved in the program. Applications are due Wednesday, April 25. If accepted into the program, there are important mandatory dates to be aware of that should be discussed with families before applying:
May 17 Thursday 6th/7th Period Spring Play Day (excused from class)
June 12 Tuesday 9 am – 12:30 pm Training Day 1
Aug 23 Thursday 9 am – 2:30 pm Training Day 2
Aug 24 Friday 10:30 am – 3:30 pm Training Day 3
Aug 27 Monday 7:30 am – 3:45 pm Orientation and First Day of School!
If your student decides to apply, make sure he/she/they review the application carefully and contact Ms. Galen (school counselor) if you have any questions.
If you were ABSENT on the day of the Informational Meetings, watch the PowerPoint to get the information and get an application (yellow paper) from Ms. Galen or Mr. Groom.
