W.E.B.

Web Leaders

W.E.B. (Where Everybody Belongs) started four years ago with the assistance of a grant received by the Vail School District. Two OVMS teachers working together to help improve our school culture through “student to student” mentoring. In May of 2012, self selected seventh graders attended an orientation to learn more about WEB. Those students applied to become WEB leaders for their 8th grade year. Before the 2012-2013 school year even started, these students attended WEB training which helped them become mentors for incoming sixth grade students. Social events organized by OVMS’s WEB Leaders promote these age groups to connect and build relationships. Sixth grade students receive peer support in order to make a positive transition to middle school. They also learn that people at school care about them and their success.
