BMS Continues WEB Mentoring Program
Above, BMS students participate in a team-building exercise during this year's 6th grade orientation.
Beachwood Middle School continues
its WEB program this school year. WEB is a nationwide program that helps 6th
graders feel more comfortable and achieve success during their first year of
The WEB 6th grade orientation and transition program is designed to welcome and
support 6th graders by assigning them to an 8th grade WEB Leader, who serves as
a mentor during this school year. WEB Leaders welcome the sixth grade class on
the first day of school and continue to support them throughout their first
year of middle school.
WEB Leaders are responsible
older students who are hand-selected from a large pool of applicants and have
met the qualifications of being a good role model and a positive leader on our
campus. They are students who are positive role models, responsible, possess
leadership qualities, are kind and, most important, have a desire to give back to
their school community.
WEB Leaders are given the
responsibility of managing and instructing a small group of 10 sixth graders on
Orientation Day in a series of activities to help sixth graders to get to know
each other better. WEB leaders also pass on valuable information throughout the
school year about being successful in middle school.
