WEB – Where Everybody Belongs

A group of kids work to keep a balloon in the air.

Hudson Middle School incoming Class of 2026 participated in the second year of WEB. WEB, which stands for “Where Everybody Belongs” is a middle school orientation and transition program that welcomes 6th graders and helps to make them feel comfortable throughout the first year of their middle school experience. Built on the belief that students can help students succeed, the program trains mentors from the 8th grade class to be WEB leaders. As positive role models, WEB leaders are mentors and student leaders who guide the 6th graders to discover what it takes to be successful at Hudson Middle School.

WEB provides 6th graders with support and guidance from 8th graders who have been through the challenges of middle school including attending a larger school.

  • This year we have forty-five (45) 8th grade WEB leaders along with five (5) Freshman who returned to help as former WEB leaders.
  • We had about 350 6th grader students attend the WEB orientation activities.
  • Five Middle School staff trained the WEB leaders.
  • Other Middle School staff joined the actual orientation day.
  • Large group activities were held in the gym for the first two hours of the day. These activities included a variety of group activities that got people moving and excited.
  • Small group activities were also held and led by the WEB leaders and school staff. These activities included cooperative games and other fun ways to get to know each other.
  • Additionally, the 6th graders had time to practice opening their lockers and toured the building.

Thanks to our WEB leaders and staff for helping our 6th graders feel welcome and connected to Hudson Middle School!
