Los Alisos Middle School
WHAT IS WEB WEB is a sixth grade transition program Preparation – This begins with WEB Leader visits and information getting out to the fifth graders and their parents in the spring. Orientation - WEB orientation is phenomenal! Students are welcomed and wow- ed. The orientation is opening and closing assemblies and a small group session of 10 students led by a WEB Leader. Yearlong support – The same WEB Leader that led the new students on orientation day will provide so9cial and academic support throughout the school year. WEB is a Leadership training program Eighth graders were trained in team building activities, cooperative skill development, and discussion skills. WEB is a school community building program The school climate will change because of WEB based on a simple concept: Connecting sixth graders with successful eighth graders. While creating a sense of comfort for the incoming students, the WEB concept also addresses the attitudes of the eighth graders toward the sixth graders, and respect for sixth graders becomes the norm.
