Art Classes
Student Wing art project

West Brook 5th grade art students have been busy learning how to create texture from repeated lines. They have learned the process of relief printing and have been experimenting with two-color printing techniques. We are excited to see what these talented artists create next!

Students from Ms. Frangiosa's quarter one art classes each created and added a piece to make up this collaborative mural. Each student created a feather indicating their names, a word that best describes them, and images of things that lift their spirits. Inspired by Kelsey Montague's murals #whatliftsyou.

For the past 16 months, Bergen County food pantries have seen a surge of families in need. To address this crisis, Mrs. Smerdon and Mrs. Downson began a successful cereal drive at West Brook Middle School. Thank you to our teachers, staff, parents, and students for your efforts and contributions. Be sure to watch the video of the cereal dominos!
