Ms. Marie Clepper, a fixture in the Upper School for generations and beloved by all, has officially retired from Brookstone School. After 48 years of dedicated service, the ever youthful 88-year old mother and grandmother finally decided, “It’s time.” Ms. Clepper started her journey here at Brookstone in 1973 at the age of 40. At the time, she had three school-aged children and was looking for work that would align with their schedules so she took a position as a fourth-grade teacher’s aid. She served the school in several capacities […]
Good morning students, What is still very real to any adult in your life, you know 9/11/2001 only as part of your history, and it’s an important part. Ask any adult where they were that day and they will be able to vividly remember where they were when the news of the terrorist attacks started breaking. For me, I was entering my third year in the U.S.A. as an international student, playing tennis at CSU. I remember walking into my first class of the day with a few students who were […]

It is our privilege to highlight four Upper School students for their work outside of school and in our community. We are growing a generation of leaders here at Brookstone School and they continually make us proud. Ayomide Oloyede Ayomide, a senior and Head Boy Prefect, recently started a project called “Project Lunchtime” where he partners with local restaurants to save food from going in the trash. With the help of a local ministry, the food is put into to-go boxes and delivered to the homeless, elderly, and needy. In […]
Wearing face masks has become a part of school life, it is important to know how to communicate effectively while wearing one. Alumna and current parent, Dr. Alice Cellino, Au.D., CCC-A, along with Dr. Susie Ford, Ph. D., CCC-S, of Columbus Speech and Hearing Center (CSHC), conducted training during pre-planning to provide our faculty with tools that enhance communication while wearing masks. At Brookstone, we care as much about our parents as we do our students and teachers. As such, CSHC created the video below just for parents that includes […]

Please enjoy this email from Leigh Anne Floyd, Lower School Principal. It embodies so many of the qualities we strive to teach our children here at Brookstone. Dear Lower School Parents. Are you ready? We are! School begins tomorrow (7:45 will be here before we know it), and many of you may have some back to school traditions to start off the new school year. Others may be exhausted from back to school shopping and will do what you can to get everyone fed and in bed early. A friend […]
It’s the First Day of School for the 2020-2021 school year! We have never started a school year smack dab in the middle of a pandemic, but we have our masks on, our plexiglass in place, and we are ready to go! (In all seriousness, we have spent countless hours preparing for this day and we invite you to read more about it by clicking here.) School looks different this year to say the least, but let us all rejoice that we are BACK IN SCHOOL! Whether in person or […]
