Chloe Brodeur, age 12, was a Westmont student from preschool through Kindergarten. She made some wonderful and lasting friends during her time at Westmont. In fact, she and another former Westmont student (and their moms!) are looking forward to visiting one of these friends in his current home in Kansas at the end of this month. Along with meeting new friends, Chloe really enjoyed the Olympics that were held at the school and the creation of castles and people from Medieval times.
Chloe also participated in an after-school program called Touch the Music in which students actually got to play real orchestral instruments. This experience was a pivotal one for Chloe in her love of playing instruments. At a very young age she showed an unusual ability to get sound from some very difficult instruments such as the piccolo. Chloe took piano lessons for several years and then started trumpet at school while in 4th grade. She has continued with her trumpet playing both at school and in private lessons and this year was 2nd chair in Area Band, played in the District Honors Band, and was the only 7th grader and female trumpet player selected to play in the Regions Honors band comprising 7 northern NJ counties. In addition to music, Chloe enjoys athletics and participates in track in the spring and cross country in the fall. Finally, Chloe has always been a huge animal lover and continues to enjoy playing with and training her dogs.
