FAQ

WEB's Frequently Asked Questions:

What is WEB?
WEB - Where Everyone Belongs - is a student mentoring program sponsored by the PTSA and ISF. This program is being implemented in all ISD middle schools to help support 6th graders socially, emotionally, and academically and to set them up for success with peer-mentors. Every incoming 6th grader will be assigned two 8th grade WEB Leaders who will show them the ropes of middle school and their way around Maywood at orientation and throughout the year. There will be social and academic check-ins with Leaders and 6th graders all year long, along with sponsored after school activities like game days and movie nights.
Who are WEB Leaders?
WEB Leaders are 8th grade students who represent all aspects of life at Maywood. They will undergo a three-day long training process in August and will be responsible mentoring for a group of 10-12 6th grade students all year long. 
What is WEB Orientation?
The most important WEB activity of the year will be on Monday, August 27, 2018 from 8-Noon in Maywood’s gym. Students will just need to bring themselves and something they will be comfortable sitting on the floor in. Orientation will introduce 6th graders to their leaders and group members, allow them to practice with their lockers, and will include a tour of the school in their small groups. Orientation is for ALL students who are new to Maywood, but groups for WEB activities will be for 6th graders only.
What does WEB look like for students during the year? 
WEB Leaders will be out in the halls during all passing times the first week of school to help students find their way to classes and with their lockers. 
There will be social and academic check-ins with Leaders and 6th graders all year long, along with sponsored after school activities like game days and movie nights. The third Thursday of every month will be a WEB Lunch check-in, where 6th graders sit with their leaders to talk about what's going on in their lives. There will be a movie day in later October, and a game day in the winter after school! 
How do I find out who my WEB Leader is?
WEB Leaders and groups won't be finalized until Monday, August 27th on orientation day, and adjustments may be made as new students enroll at Maywood. During lunch check-ins, adults supervising the lunchroom will have master lists in case students forget or haven't met their WEB Leaders yet.
