Have a nice holiday and come back with recharged batteries! See you August 31st.
Because it’s summer and the memories are just waiting to happen.
Westbrook Elementary School
The students, staff and parents of Westbrook Elementary School aspire to work collaboratively to help our students achieve personal and academic success. Our community is committed to demonstrating respect, responsibility, caring, trust and a sense of family. These words are inscribed on the entrance to the school.
What makes Westbrook special? The people…We learn to treat others how we would want to be treated and to value the world around us. Here are a few of Westbrook’s Best Practices
- Character Education
- Environmental Awareness
- Academic Enrichment
- Parent Volunteers
This summer, all students at Westbrook are asked to read at least two books and to write at least two postcards to Principal Lane or a Westbrook teacher.
We are trying out a new program for buying school supplies this year. It's called School Pak. School Pak is a nationally recognized supplier of pre packaged school supply kits (hand picked by our Westbrook teachers).

Homework: How Parents Can Help
Homework is a great opportunity for students to practice what they have learned in class and begin to master the subject matter. It is also an opportunity for parents to get involved in their child’s education. Helping children with homework isn’t always easy and making it meaningful to the student requires cooperation and communication among the teachers, students and parents. This parent checklist provides some useful tips on how to help your child develop good study habits and complete their homework successfully:
- Show that you believe education and homework are important.
- Provide guidance.
- Encourage your child to utilize the free homework resources that MCPS provides for all students.
- Work with your child’s teachers to resolve problems and overcome obstacles.
MCPS Parent Guides
The MCPS Parent Guides will give you an overview of the grade level program and explain what your child will be learning in reading and language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. The information in these guides will assist you in providing support for your child throughout the school year.
