The Buzz at Westbrook School
November 18, 2022
From the Principal...
Dear Westbrook Families,
As a parent of elementary students, I know how busy this time of year can be with meetings, activities, social gatherings, work, and school. I am thankful for everything you do to manage your family schedule and help your children learn, grow, and experience new things.
I wish you and your family a restful and relaxing holiday break. I hope you have lots of time with your family and friends and can slow down and enjoy each moment. We always ask that you be intentional about reading with your children over the long break.
We look forward to seeing our students back at Westbrook on Monday, November 28th.
