The Buzz at Westbrook School

December 18, 2020

From the Principal's Office:

Dear Westbrook Families,


Happy Holidays! As the 2020 year comes to a close, I am grateful to families for working closely with teachers supporting remote learning. Taking a break from the screen, reading books, playing inside and outside over break will be refreshing.


Looking forward to 2021, I am encouraged about possibilities and look forward to a time when we can see students return to school safely. I send you best wishes for a safe and healthy winter break.


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,


Adam Parisi, Ed.S.
