Hyde WEB Program

  • Dear Parents/Guardians of Hyde Incoming 6th graders,


    We are inviting your 6th grader to our first ever VIRTUAL WEB orientation!


    WEB stands for Where Everybody Belongs, and it is an orientation program designed to help 6th graders feel more comfortable and excited about coming to middle school. During the orientation, 6th graders will meet other 6th grade students, play games, learn about Hyde Middle School, and meet trained 8th grade leaders who have been chosen because of their leadership skills, dedication, enthusiasm, respect for diverse ideas, and friendliness. 


    These activities will be done virtually via Google Meets  in small groups of about ten 6th graders and two 8th grade WEB Leaders.  The WEB Leaders will run the activities, and there will be teachers monitoring all of the Google Meets to make sure everything goes smoothly and help with any technical issues that may occur.  


    On Wednesday, August 5, the 8th grade WEB Leaders will call to invite your 6th grader to the orientation.  They will also send an email to your 6th grader’s CUSD email account, which will include a link to their specific WEB group.  PARENTS:   please assist your child to their CUSD g-mail account  if this is their first time logging in.  NOTE:  The 6th graders are randomly divided into their WEB groups, so it is important they only use the link that has been emailed to them.   


    In order for your 6th grader to participate, here’s what you need to know:



    Wednesday, August 5, 2020:  Google Meet Link will be emailed to your 6th grader
