Our new faculty have been hard at work this week as they’ve been through New Teacher Orientation! In addition to working in their classrooms and learning more about Brookstone, they also experienced their first Developmental Sprint facilitated by the Blanchard Leadership Institute. What an incredible group of educators and a wonderful time spent together! It’s going to be an amazing year!
Our Senior Varsity Football Players and Head Coach Rance Gillespie held a press conference for local media and sports outlets recently as part of our Media Day and it was a huge success! As always, our students were impressive and handled the conference with poise and confidence. You can watch footage from the event from both WRBL and WTVM news. After interviews with reporters and formal team pictures, the players had some fun with some candid photos in the gym and weight room. The excitement and the energy was palpable […]
Best wishes and “Break a Leg” to the cast and crew of “How to Eat Like a Child!” This incredibly talented group of students, under the direction of theatre teachers Robby and Dotty Davis, were invited to perform in front of international audiences at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in Edinburg, Scotland. We are so proud of them! Enjoy this behind the scenes look at the production and interviews with the actors and directors. What an amazing opportunity! Why Brookstone? For Endless Opportunities like this.
With gratitude for a wonderful school year…Enjoy your summer!!!
As we come to the end of another school year, we celebrate the retirement of an amazing group of educators, some of our longest serving faculty members. To say we will miss them is an understatement. These teachers have decades and decades of combined years at Brookstone. Multiply that by the number of students they have taught and the impact they have had is simply immeasurable. We wish them all the best as they move onto the next chapter of their lives, but they will always be a part of […]
Graduation has come and gone, but we are still celebrating our graduates! Brookstone’s Class of 2022 was accepted to 89 different colleges and universities around the country and even the world. They also received over $7.3 million dollars in scholarships!! What an amazing group of young men and women! We are so incredibly proud of them!
Last week, we celebrated ten Brookstone seniors as they signed to play their sport at the collegiate level. Congratulations to each and everyone of them! We are incredibly proud of you and can’t wait to watch you in the years to come! Go Cougars!!
April is the Month of the Military Child, a time to honor the sacrifices made by military families worldwide with an emphasis on the experience of the dependent children of military members serving at home and overseas. As part of our Month of the Military Child celebration, which included a special breakfast, Purple Up! Day, and more, students learned that the dandelion is the official flower of the military child. Do you know why? The dandelion can put down roots almost anywhere and thrive. They adapt easily and stand ready to fly into breezes that take them to […]
As we celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week, it is only fitting to honor those teachers with an official, “Thank you.” Thank you for what you do day in and day out and for the many ways, often unacknowledged, that you pour yourselves out for the sake of your students. We simply cannot say thank you enough. Here at Brookstone, people matter. Our students matter and they know they matter. They know our teachers are FOR them, fighting for them, working on their behalf, and doing everything they can to provide the […]
The University of Georgia had some Brookstone Cougars on the sidelines taking in all the G-Day action! Freshman Mal Waldrep, Juniors Walter Blanchard and Dylan Thornton were visiting as recruits, and former UGA player Prather Hudson, Brookstone Class of 2016, joined them on the sidelines. We can’t wait to watch these boys in the years to come! So Go Dawgs, but Go Cougars always and forever!
