WEB 'Where Everyone Belongs'
WEB, an acronym for “Where Everybody Belongs”, is an orientation and transition program that welcomes 6th graders to Barker Road Middle School (BRMS) in a way that makes them feel comfortable and appreciated throughout their critical first year of middle school.
WEB is built on the belief that students can help each other succeed and utilizes 8th grade WEB leaders to serve as mentors to the incoming 6th graders. These WEB leaders understand the challenges that middle school can pose and help guide the 6th graders to understand what it takes to be successful at BRMS.
Each 6th grader will have two WEB leaders who will work with them throughout the school year. Activities that WEB leaders facilitate and participate in include the following: sixth grade orientation, movie night, open house, Mix It Up day, fifth grade fun night and core values classroom lessons.
As WEB leaders, these eighth grade students learn valuable leadership skills while helping to make the BRMS school experience enjoyable and successful for all.
