Mrs. Britchi wins UConn ECE Teaching Award

Congratulations to Alina Britchi, Westbrook High School Science Teacher, who was one of four recipients to receive the UConn Early College Experience Instructor Award for Excellence in Course Instruction at a reception hosted by UConn on April 26, 2019. Mrs. Britchi was recognized for her enthusiasm in finding new and exciting ways to teach physics using real life situations and experiences, leading by example, and her involvement with students. Under Mrs. Britchi’s leadership, the Westbrook High School Physics Team won the 8th Annual UConn ECE Cardboard Boat Race at Avery Point in Groton, and competed in the Northeast Regional Science Bowl hosted by UConn’s School of Engineering in which students designed, constructed, and raced a galvanic cell car, and won first place the 3D printing design competition. We are proud of you Mrs. Britchi, and appreciate all you do!

  • Health and Safety Tip

    Dear Westbrook Families:

    A very recent sighting of a small bat in the lower parking lot of Daisy Ingraham reminds us that there are simple steps to follow to be safe when any small or large animals or birds are found to be out of their habitat, sick or infirmed.  The first step is never to approach or touch any unfamiliar animal or bird and to report its presence to the authorities. While we have had no reports of any children or parents touching the bat in the parking lot, the potential for any safety concerns prompts us to share the information that our medical professionals would advise.  For more information regarding keeping yourself or your children safe when in the vicinity of any unfamiliar animals during the day or at night, please click on the link recommended by our medical professionals .  Thank you.
