On February 13 and 14, 2019, West Brook Middle School held its annual Hoops for Heart fundraiser. The event helps the American Heart Association raise funds for education, first aid, and medical research programs. All students participated in a marathon knockout basketball tournament. This event supports the content taught in Health and Physical Education classes. The message is clear: exercise and good nutrition help fight heart disease.

Physical education teachers Sabrina Rubinsky, Debbie Scuilla, Jill Plotkin, Larry Goodman, and Wayne Poppe successfully planned the Hoops for Heart event, along with the West Brook administration.  It thrilled Dr. Spollen-LaRaia and Mr. Calenda to see the middle school students actively engaged in an event that fosters learning and personal growth. Through this West Brook event, students had a rewarding time supporting our continued partnership with the American Heart Association.

National School Counseling Week

They provided munchkins to their colleagues reminding them that “stressed spells desserts backward.” We gave 3 Musketeers candy in honor of our own "3 Musketeers", and shared pretzels with the students at lunch to help them “unravel” when they’re feeling “tied up in knots". 

The counselors also provided teachers with beautiful, positive affirmations. The little things go a long way! The counseling department would like to give a big thank you to all students, staff members, families, and administrators for supporting West Brook’s School Counseling program! We are lucky to have such a great team in our district!
