Please call the main office (854-0830) if you recognize something that belongs to your child.

Box Tops for Education: We need your help! We would like to collect as many Box Tops as possible by May 1, 2017. The money we earn from collecting Box Tops goes towards funding various activities and equipment purchases for our school. We will be holding a contest to see which homeroom can collect the most completed sheets. The winner of this contest will be awarded an ice cream sundae party, so get clipping! Please glue or tape all Box Tops to the sheet provided (in homeroom mailboxes). Please be sure your name and homeroom are clearly marked on each sheet. This will make it much easier to count and to accurately track each homeroom’s progress. Thank you for supporting Westbrook Middle School!
