From the Principal...


Dear Westbrook Families,


As the school year ends, I am grateful for your support, partnership, and trust in our school community. It has been an honor to serve as the principal of Westbrook for the past two years and witness the growth and accomplishments of our incredible students.


I am thankful to our dedicated teachers and staff, who have created a nurturing and engaging environment for our students. They have embraced innovative teaching methods, fostered a love for learning, and instilled the values of compassion, respect, and courage in our students. I am proud of their dedication and the positive impact they have had on the lives of our students.


I would also like to extend my appreciation to our parent community. Your unwavering support, active participation in school activities, and open lines of communication have been vital to our success. I am grateful for your ongoing commitment to your child's education.


To our students moving to second grade, we are confident that you will rise to the challenges ahead and achieve great things. We are excited to hear about your successes, so please keep in touch.


I wish you and your family a fun and safe summer filled with relaxation and family time. I encourage you to intentionally engage your child in conversation and continue reading with them this summer. Thank you once again for your support and partnership throughout this year. I am incredibly proud to be part of such a wonderful school community.


For your Children,



Danielle Crandall
