WHS Assistant Principal Mr. Lefebvre Leaves for Hopkinton Middle School

Eddie Bomfim, Contributing Writer

Mr. Lefebvre had been at WHS for almost 20 years when he decided to take on a new challenge in his life.

In Mr Lefebvre’s words, “I thought it was time for a new challenge. I had been at WHS since 2004 and learned so much from students and staff. I knew that leaving and starting somewhere new would be challenging, the thought of this made me nervous, I also thought it would be good for my personal growth.”

Mr. Lefebvre is now the principal of Hopkinton Middle School in Hopkinton, MA.

Years ago, Mr. Lefebvre earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Massachusetts, a master’s degree from Western Michigan, and another master’s degree from Endicott College.

He started teaching right out of college and taught for two years at West Springfield High School. He then landed a music teaching job in Westborough. His schedule was split between teaching at the Westborough High School and Westborough Middle School. Later he became one of the assistant principals of WHS.

Mr Lefebvre worked hard to take care of everybody in the building including, students, cafeteria employees, custodians, and teachers–all while maintaining a good mood throughout the day.

He says, “My hope for the students at WHS is that they continue to look out and care for each other. One of the things that makes WHS so special is the feeling of family in the building. This feeling of family can only happen when strong and meaningful relationships are present.”

He also has three awesome daughters who he also coaches in softball. In his free time, Mr Lefebvre enjoys all things music. He plays the saxophone and the guitar.

“Relationships need to be nourished and worked on, in all aspects of our lives. I hope everyone at WHS does just that, looks out for and takes care of each other. I hope that everyone takes the time to learn about others in the building, what makes them unique and special. Investing this time in each other leads to an appreciation for how all of these unique people, working together, make the school a special place,” Mr. Lefebvre advises.

WHS wishes Mr. Lefebvre a good year of new experiences in Hopkinton.

And WHS will remember a saying of Mr. Lefebvre’s: “Treat each other well, remember who you are.”
