The Buzz at Westbrook School

December 4, 2020

From the Principal's Office:

Dear Westbrook Families,


Teachers are excited to meet with you and share information about your child. Thank you for signing up for Parent Teacher Conferences. If you have not yet scheduled a time to meet with your child’s teachers please use this link to sign up. Conferences are scheduled throughout the month of December. Please contact me if you have any questions, or if you need assistance with signing up for conferences.


Please help me thank our PTO for providing family fun on Sunday, November 22nd. Westbrook students & families enjoyed a one-hour live virtual show presented by Tim Hannig of Pro Kids. Positive reviews were received from families and students alike!


Save the date of Tuesday, December 15, 2020 to enjoy the virtual winter sing-a-long hosted by the district general music education team, specifically Mrs. Rebecca Connelly, Westbrook School. More information to come.


Warm Regards,
Susan Woodrow

Donations for District 57 Families

COVID-19 has presented many unique hardships and challenges for some of our family members, friends and neighbors. Some parents have asked if it’s possible to make a financial donation to help support District 57 families who are currently in need. The District has set up a system to facilitate this for anyone who is interested. We will distribute the collected funds to families, based on formal requests that are made. If you would like to donate, simply go to this link and please follow these steps:


  • Click on “Make a one-time payment.”
  • Fill in your student’s name, school and grade.
  • Click “COVID-19 Donation to District 57 Families.”
  • Fill in your information and donation amount, then proceed to the payment section.


Thank you so much, in advance, for your kindness and generosity.


Those who are in need of support can fill out this online form. Names will only be seen by select district personnel who are distributing the funds.


Thank you,
