  • BHMS W.E.B. Program Promotes Friendship through Fun

    Posted January 30, 2015

    WEB Snowman Collage.jpg

    BHMS has a program known as WEB, which is an acronym for “Where Everybody Belongs”. Each year a group of 40 to 50 eighth grade students are selected through an application process to serve as WEB Ambassadors. The first of their many duties throughout the year is to participate in our 5th grade orientation and transition program, which takes place the week before school starts. Through team-building activities and games, incoming 5th graders make new friends and bond with each other and their 8th grade WEB Ambassadors throughout the school year.

    Every several weeks a WEB activity is held during 5th grade lunch. The 5th graders and their assigned WEB Ambassadors eat lunch together, and then participate in a planned activity. During the WEB lunch held this week the 5th graders had to use limited supplies to turn their 8th grade WEB Ambassadors into “Snow People” As you can see from the photos we had some pretty wacky looking Snow People around here after this fun and creative exercise.

    Now in its 5th year, our WEB program continues to prove greatly successful in helping our 5th graders acclimate to and enjoy their first year at BHMS. Additionally, it gives responsibility and accountability to our 8th grader WEB Ambassadors who serve as mentors.
