WEB Leader Application
April 14, 2020
Dear Seventh Grade Student,
You are invited to apply to be a member of the Altadena WEB program. WEB Leaders are 8th graders who are good role models for younger students and who have been successful at Altadena. WEB Leaders’ communication skills, leadership potential, responsibility, and personality have helped them succeed in the middle school environment, and the lessons they have learned should be shared to help others succeed. You could have a tremendous influence on our new students and you will learn many valuable leadership skills in the process. Plus, it will be fun!!
What does a WEB Leader do? WEB Leaders are trained to work with the incoming sixth graders who are entering our school next fall for the first time. This year is especially challenging since our incoming 6th graders did not have the opportunity to have an orientation day as a 5th grader. After the training, the WEB Leaders will run sixth grade orientation before school starts in July. At the orientation, each WEB Leader will work with a small group of sixth graders, helping them as they face the challenges of their first week of middle school. Additionally, throughout the school year, WEB Leaders will meet with, touch base, discuss problems and plan activities with their assigned class of advisory kids. We know that the more contact a sixth grader has with their WEB Leader the more successful the sixth grader will be.
If you are interested in being a WEB leader and helping during your advisory time to make middle school a great experience for our 6th graders, please fill out the Google Form. Once we have evaluated the forms we will let you know if you have been accepted as a WEB Leader. We take into consideration many factors including behavior.
We are looking forward to a great year!
Mrs. Badgley, Mr. Jolin, and Mrs. Liberta
