  • Greetings parents and guardians!

    We are excited to announce that it is time for 6th graders to apply to become WEB leaders. WEB, which stands for “Where Everybody Belongs”, is a middle school orientation and transition program that welcomes 5th graders, and new students, and makes them feel comfortable throughout the first year of their middle school experience. WEB is an awesome opportunity for the 6th graders to learn about more responsibility, and what kind of leaders they are. Applications have two parts: An online application to be filled out by the student, and a letter that needs to be signed by you. A copy of the letter was sent home with students. This letter has all the essential info about what qualities we look for in WEB leaders, and important dates. Please note that if your child is unable to attend any of the dates included in the letter, they will be unable to become a WEB leader. These four dates are essential to the success of the program. Both parts of the application are due by Friday April 20th, and we will notify students by Friday April 27th. We hope you encourage your child to apply for this awesome opportunity! 
    If you have any questions at all please don't hesitate to contact Mr. Thorpe,, or Mrs. Glewwe,
    Thank you!
    Mr. Thorpe and Mrs. Glewwe
