PAWS, Parents of Athletes at Webb School, is a spirited community of parents who help encourage school spirit and support athletics at Webb School. We recognize the many benefits athletics brings to our children’s development and that coaches cannot possibly carry out all the needed support required by a rigorous athletic schedule, our rural location and enrollment.
The mission of PAWS is to enhance the athletic experience for all Webb athletes, coaches and fans to build a strong Webb community by increasing student, alumni, and parent pride in Webb Athletics.
To achieve our vision and carry out our mission, we will host concessions and collect gate admissions at student athletic events, sell spirit wear for teams, publish programs for athletic events and increase public awareness of Webb Athletics by hosting regional tournaments.
Goals of PAWS include completion of the Weight Room Improvement project, building an outdoor concession stand, expanding public relations, and growing the support of athletics while preserving Webb's time-honored traditions of personal integrity, sportsmanship and fair play.
The vision of PAWS is to strengthen and to grow athletics at The Webb School.
