The Buzz at Westbrook School
April 1st, 2022
From the Principal...
April 1, 2022
Dear Westbrook Families,
April is Westbrook's Kindness Month. Teachers and students will focus on showing random acts of kindness at school and home. Students will receive a kindness chart from their classroom teacher and mark it when they complete the random act of kindness listed. Completed kindness charts can be returned to school for a special prize. Some classrooms will keep the charts at school to complete, and others will take theirs home to work on. Kindness matters at Westbrook School!
Planning for the next school year begins early. If you would like to request that certain information be considered for your child’s classroom placement, please complete this optional form.
This week we will celebrate library appreciation and paraprofessional appreciation day. Please join us in thanking our wonderful librarian Carol Capra and our incredible paraprofessionals who work wonderfully with all of our students.
The Westbrook PTO is excited to offer Kona Ice to all Westbrook students on Friday, May 20th. Please complete this Kona Ice Permission Form to indicate if your child can participate. Nutritional information and ingredients can be found at this link.

Note from the Nurse: COVID-19 Vaccination Card Information
District 57 offers families the opportunity to voluntarily provide their child’s COVID-19 vaccination status. We are asking parents to send a copy of their child's Covid vaccination card to the health office after their child receives their second dose. This is greatly appreciated!
