We want to extend a big welcome to our grade 6 parents and students on behalf of our WEB Leaders and Coordinators!
All Grade 6 students entering Betty Gilbert Middle School are invited on Friday, August 30 to our Grade 6 orientation day led by our Grade 8 WEB Leaders.
WEB, which stands for “Where Everybody Belongs” is a middle school orientation and transition program that welcomes 6th graders and makes them feel comfortable throughout the first year of their middle school experience. Built on the belief that students can help students succeed, the program trains mentors from our Grade 8 WEB Leaders. As positive role models, WEB Leaders are mentors and student leaders who guide the 6th graders to discover what it takes to be successful during the transition to middle school.
The orientation day includes:
Opening assembly 9:30-9:40
Team Meeting Time 9:40-10:40
School Tour 10:40- 11:00
Team Meeting Time 11:20-12:20
