The Buzz at Westbrook School

From the Principal...
May 6th, 2022
Dear Westbrook Families,
We cannot thank you enough for showering our staff with appreciation this week. Our staff received the kindest cards from students, and the PTO kept us fed with snacks and lunches. Room parents and volunteers decorated the school with a storybook theme. Students loved finding out which book was represented outside of their classroom. We are grateful for your generosity.
Our first graders listened to presentations from Lions Park and Fairview fifth graders this week. The fifth graders did a great job sharing all of the exciting things the elementary school offers. The principals, Mrs. Kelly, and Mr. Ophus, stopped by each first-grade classroom to greet every first grader. The students were so excited and asked great questions! First graders will be taking their field trip next week to River Trails. Please ensure your child has dressed appropriately for the weather, as this is an outdoor field trip.
On Friday, May 13th, we will have half-day attendance for students throughout the District. Only first-grade students will attend from 9:20 AM to 12:20 PM at Westbrook. Please note the different dismissal times for our bussers and walkers. First-grade students will not need to bring lunch on half days. Our Kids’ Corner program will only be available to first-grade students from 7:00 a.m. to 9:20 a.m. Please inform your private daycare providers of this variance in the schedule. Circle of Friends and Kindergarten students will NOT attend school on Friday, May 13th.
For your children,
