WEB kicks off the school year with a fun filled and educational orientation day that welcomes your transitioning 6th graders into your school with a sense of safety and creates an anti-bullying environment. 6th graders are personally invited to attend the orientation by an 8th grade WEB Leader who spends the day with them and mentors them throughout their first year of middle school.

The orientation day includes:

  • A spirited and interactive opening assembly led by your trained adult Coordinator
  • A mentor group experience led by trained student WEB Leaders
  • A school tour led by your trained WEB Leaders
  • A thoughtful, inspiring closing assembly led by your trained Coordinator

Your 6th graders exit the gym equipped with information and strategies that will help them be successful in middle school, the knowledge that the WEB Leaders and the school care about them, and a sea of familiar faces to look forward to on their first day of school. Your WEB Leaders emerge with the confidence to be leaders and empowered to help create school change. As a result of these first day efforts, your 6th graders will experience more success, overall school safety will increase and your school will be on its way to a bully-free environment.
