The WEB Elective
The WEB elective is a fundamental part of training and preparing 8th grade leaders to mentor and connect with 7th grade students as they transition. These 8th graders will serve as leaders on campus for various activities, Social Follow Ups, and in the classroom as role models, Academic Follow Ups. They lead lessons on bullying, organization, communication and many more topics that concern the transition to middle school.
WEB places 8th grade students in a position to connect with 7th graders and create a campus community. The curriculum focuses on character development, leadership, anti-bullying, and service. The goal of these topics is to encourage student leaders to grow as students and understand their goals and how to achieve them.

What is an Academic Follow Up?
Academic follow ups occur in the classroom with a designated WEB leader. WEB leaders prepare a lesson to present to the class that teaches students a skill that is useful for the transition into middle school life. WEB leaders will usually do a small activity and end with reflection so students have time to process what was learned during the period. These are an integral part of the program that allows 7th graders to learn from their peers.
What is a Social Follow Up?
Social follow ups occur outside the classroom and are usually school wide events to develop community. WEB leaders will connect with the 7th grade WEB crew at these events and develop a stronger sense of community. Students are encouraged to attend activities on campus and get involved in clubs or intramurals to develop connections.
