WEB AT PARRAS MIDDLE SCHOOL!
WEB (Where Everybody Belongs) is a middle school orientation and transition program that welcomes 6th/7th graders and makes them feel comfortable throughout their first year of their middle school experience. Through this nationally recognized middle school transition program, members of the 8th grade class are trained to act as positive role models, mentors, and teachers who guide the 6th/7th graders to discover what it takes to be successful in middle school. Schools have reported that the WEB middle school transition program has enhanced anti-bullying efforts, reduced discipline issues, and increased school safety, creating an improved school climate and a greater sense of connection for the whole school.
Middle School Transition Program Increases Student Achievement
The goal of WEB, Boomerang Project's middle school orientation and transition program, is to provide schools with a structure in which students make real connections with each other thus increasing school safety and reducing incidence of bullying. Through this program, students learn that people at school care about them and their success. WEB is the middle school transition program that will increase student achievement, enhance character development efforts and create an anti-bullying environment at your school.
