  • Laredo Scale Modeling Club

    Laredo Scale Modeling Club
    The Laredo Scale Modeling Club is designed to engage students and build a community in the hands-on construction of scale models. Modeling is fun, yet challenging, for those involved. It begins with assembling a plastic model kit, consisting of anywhere from 50 to 500 individual pieces, and then painting the completed kit to make it look as realistic and authentic as possible. Kits come in a wide variety, including cars, aircraft, spacecraft, and armor. The kits help provide a glimpse into the past and occasionally even the future. A typical build may take five to fifteen hours from start to proper completion and is a great way to learn patience and perseverance.

    This club is open to 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade students with no activity fee.

    Please contact Mr. Stokesbury for more information.

  • WEB Leaders

    WEB, which stands for "Where Everyone Belongs", is a middle school orientation and transition program that welcomes 6th Graders and makes them feel comfortable throughout their first year of the middle school experience. 

    Built on the belief that students can help students succeed, the program trains 8th Graders 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 during the transition to middle school and help facilitate 6th grade success.

    In particular, WEB Leaders run the 6th Grade orientation each year before the start of the school year.

    WEB Leaders also assist with morning announcements and 6th grade Advisory lessons, and volunteer at other school-related functions throughout the year, including Back-to-School Night, Parent-Teacher Conferences, and 6th Grade Welcome Night.

    WEB Leaders are eighth grade students selected through an application process at the end of their seventh grade year. We are looking for creative people that want to document the events of our school for the year!

    There is no participation cost.

    Meetings are varied in timing and format and advance notice is given to the group members.
