WEB is a middle school transition program that welcomes 7th graders and makes them feel comfortable throughout the first year of their middle school experience. WEB, an acronym for Where Everybody Belongs, is built on the belief that students want to and can help other students succeed. The WEB middle school transition program at LVMS trains members of the 8th grade class to be WEB Leaders; as positive role models, WEB Leaders are motivators, leaders and teachers who guide 7th graders to discover what it takes to be successful in middle school.
WEB begins with a fun and energetic orientation day that gets 7th graders excited and proud to be attending Lompoc Valley Middle School. Our WEB leaders play a crucial role during the orientation by helping 7th graders to develop relationships with other students as well as learn strategies that will contribute to their middle school success. It does not stop there. Throughout the year our WEB leaders help shape our school culture by being leaders on campus and by leading lunchtime activities, after school activities, outreach to feeder schools and many other activities. Most importantly, they show leadership by setting examples for the other students each day.
WEB’s goal is to provide a structure in which students make real connections with each other. Through this program students learn that people at school care about them and their success.
