District middle schools host WEB Days to ease transition for sixth graders

(08/26/2022) Five Anoka-Hennepin middle schools hosted WEB Days this week to help ease the transition for sixth graders making their next step in their academic journey. 

WEB stands for Where Everybody Belongs, which is a national mentoring program that typically works with sixth graders at the school. Each school has teachers who serve as WEB Advisors and eighth graders who volunteer as WEB Leaders. 

Goals for the day were to provide the students with an opportunity to learn more about the school, interact with other sixth graders and make connections with some eighth graders who are willing to help them once the school year begins.

WEB Leaders are trained by WEB Advisors and school administrators prior to the WEB Day. The schools conduct WEB events throughout the year to create a positive school experience for all students.
