A Fond Farewell: It is with mixed emotions of happiness and sadness that I am announcing my retirement as of January 13, 2017. It has been my great pleasure to work with the children and parents here at Westbrook. I have found it to be a wonderful school in which to work. We have received many compliments from visitors about what calm and respectful school we have. It has been my pleasure in being instrumental to bringing the Beverly Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program, Virginia Tanner Dance Education Program, and several other enrichment programs to the school.
I am looking forward to spending more time with my sweetheart and husband of 45 years, and our grandchildren as well as working on theatrical productions.
I have great confidence that your new principal, Crista Holt, will be an asset to the school. She taught in the Behavior Unit here four years ago. She knows and loves the school and is excited to be assigned here.
I wish you all the best. I have loved working with the students, teachers, staff members and parents here. There are a lot of great kids at this school that will be wonderful future leaders.
New Early Day Schedule Reminder: Granite School District was recently audited by the Utah State School Board. Based on this audit, we have need to make some adjustments to our Elementary Schools Early-out planning day schedule to ensure we have an adequate amount of instructional time. Starting with second semester (January 17th), we will be adding 5 minutes of instructional time to our half day Kindergarten classes, and 10 minutes of instructional time to grades one through six, and the all-day Kindergarten classes on the early-out planning days.
This schedule adjustment will ONLY impact Early Out Fridays and 2 other dates (Thursday, February 16, 2017 and Wednesday, March 22, 2017) through the remainder of the school year. The regular schedule remains unchanged. Please see below for the detailed schedule changes for our school.
Westbrook early out times beginning January 17th will be at 1:40 P.M. (instead of 1:30) for Grades 1 – 6 and afternoon kindergarten. Morning kindergarten will get out at 11:05 A.M. (instead of 11:00).
