A different type of rigging has been spotted, draping the masts and cross arms aboard the huge vessel “Pioneer.”
The rigging‚Äîsimilar to that of a large web or safety net has been cast over the campus at the brand new Pioneer Middle School at DuPont/Northwest Landing.
Known by the initials “WEB”‚Äîwhich translates to “Where Everybody Belongs”, the newly founded leadership project for the 2008-09 school year and beyond went into effect this past Tuesday.
Its purpose, with the WEB-bies comprised of kids who want to help other kids, specifically those in the lower grades, is like that of a safety net.
According to WEB coordinator and school leadership advisor Kathy Lech, assisted by Pioneer teacher K. C. Madsen, WEB was begun to “promote a structure in which kids can make a real connections with one another.” A group of 48 Eighth grade students, outfitted in bright orange shirts, emblazoned with the letters “WEB,” were on hand on Aug. 19‚ÄîPirate Day‚Äîto welcome 6th and 7th graders and let them know they’d be available during the days to come to help acclimate the kids to the middle school culture. They’re there to provide answers, show the way‚Ä¶and to make the middle school experience a pleasant one.
Pioneer’s WEB joins with 400 schools nationwide participating the program, as part of the Boomerang Project. Learn more about Pioneer’s web at www.whereeverybodybelongs.com.
