The Buzz at Westbrook School

February 24, 2023

From the Principal...

Dear Westbrook Families,

Thank you to our wonderful PTO for organizing the Sweet As A Bee dance last night for our Westbrook families. It was great to see so many students enjoying the DJ, musical instruments, temporary tattoos, crafts, and snacks. We are grateful to all of the Westbrook parent volunteers and the student volunteers who joined us from Lions Park.

Kindergarten and First Grade students will bring report cards and progress reports home today in backpacks. Please contact your child’s teacher with any questions regarding the report.

I want to thank our amazing instructional assistants who go above and beyond each day to support our teachers and students. We celebrate them today for Instructional Assistant Appreciation Day!

For your children,

Danielle Crandall
