WEB is back at BCMS

Attention parents of 6th grade students for the 2016-17 school year!

What is WEB?

WEB stands for Where Everybody Belongs. It is a peer mentorship program that empowers 8th grade students to help 6th grade students through highly structured activities. Over 100 students of next year's 8th grade class will be trained this summer to lead our incoming 6th grade class through group activities, build relationships and create a school culture of learning, belonging and contributing.

When does WEB take place?

6th Grade WEB Orientation is Thursday, August 25, from 8 a.m. to 12 noon at BCMS. 6th grade parents, please mark this very important date on your calendars. You can drop off and pick up your child at the activities entrance (pool doors) or take advantage of the transportation that will be provided to and from this event.

WEB events will also be taking place every month throughout the school year. The two 8th grade leaders assigned to your child's WEB group (10 students each) will make it their mission to become a positive role model for your child. The WEB Coordinator team provides these 8th grade leaders with the training and structures they need to make these relationships grow.

Attendance at the WEB orientation is extremely important for your 6th grader to experience and understand what WEB is all about, so please make every effort for your child to attend. The mission of WEB is making your child's transition to Middle School the most welcoming and positive experience that it can be. Please contact us if you have any questions about our program.
