We wanted to let you know the plan this year for WEB leaders and the 6th-grade students they support.
We are currently working on a format where WEB leaders will meet weekly with their 6th-grade cohorts in order to provide connection, support, and troubleshooting as the year continues. We will display the specific weekly calendar and plan here when it is completed. If your 6th-grade student has not been contacted by a WEB leader, please email Mrs. Moreali or Mrs. Jacobo so they can add your child to a 6th-grade cohort.
THANK YOU FOR PARTICIPATING IN OUR WEB ORIENTATION DAY.
Special thanks to our WEB leaders and advisors. The information from the day is below:
Thursday August 13th from 9:00 am-10:30 am
This year our orientation is virtual. This will not be a pre pre-recorded video. Middle school is already a big transition and with distance-learning, we know our students need a lot more guidance. With our trained WEB leaders, 6th graders will build connections with other 6th grade students as well as older peers. Students will watch a short welcome video and then be guided through many activities with their WEB leaders on-line. Our hope is that they build connections with other Morrill students and have peers to reach out to for help and guidance. **
Please have your child check their student emails from August 8th to August 12th for more detailed information. If you have any further questions please e-mail one of the WEB coordinators.
**Here is some additional information of what WEB is:
WEB, which stands for “Where Everybody Belongs” is a middle school orientation and transition program that welcomes 6th and new 7th/8th graders and makes them feel comfortable throughout the first year of their middle school experience. Built on the belief that students can help students succeed, the program trains mentors from the 7th and 8th-grade classes to be WEB Leaders. As positive role models, WEB Leaders are mentors and student leaders who guide the 6th/7th/8th graders to discover what it takes to be successful during the transition to middle school and help facilitate 6th/7th/8th grade success.
