Westbrook Elementary School 2014 Spring Testing
This spring, Montgomery County Public Schools students will participate in the annual administration of state tests. This is a transition year between the Maryland School Assessments (MSA) and new tests being developed by the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC). Most of our students in Grades 3–8 will take the MSA in reading and mathematics, which is being administered for the final time this year. However, a random sample of students in each school will participate in a trial run—called a “field test”—of the new PARCC assessments. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask your child’s teacher or school principal.
Westbrook Elementary School
We did it! In an amazing display of collaboration many MCPS offices, Hess construction, Westbrook staff and our community members worked tirelessly and patiently to survive the noise and the dust and at last the finish line is in sight! The first days and weeks of school have been a great success and we are so pleased to be in our beautiful “new” building. Although there are still some final details to complete on the “punch list” our building addition saga is coming to a close.
As you know each year the SGA participates in Pennies for Patients to raise money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. We’ve raised over $1,400.00 and our goal is to raise $3,600.00 so we’ve extended the deadline to Friday, March 1st.

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.
