Where Everybody Belongs (WEB)
WEB, which stands for Where Everybody Belongs is a junior high orientation and transition program that welcomes 7th graders to the building and pairs them with 8th grade WEB Leaders to make them feel comfortable throughout their first year of junior high. WEB is a year long program that is based on the belief that students can help other students succeed. The WEB year starts in March when eighth grade students are recommended by teachers and go through a selection process that includes submitting an application, meeting with the WEB coordinators and then participating in some fun activities. Once chosen, WEB Leaders attend training days during the summer and then help the Coordinators run an orientation program at the beginning of the school year. During the course of the year, WEB Leaders push into student advisories to complete academic follow ups and give seventh grade students strategies that will help them experience success during their first year of junior high. Leaders and students also participate in quite a few social events such as a back to school dance, hiking Azure Mountain, cookie decorating, a food drive, and more to connect with each other socially and promote a positive school climate.
