There was a special delivery made to one dedicated Brookstone Baseball Fan this past week in the Intermediate School. Read more below from Mrs. Javonne Stewart. “I live for special and heartfelt moments.

These are the types of moments that fill your heart and let […]
It’s not every day an international superstar gives you a shout out as his hero! But that’s exactly what happened recently to our very own Robby Davis!

Recently Luke shared in an ACM video that Robby as his “super-hero!” How awesome is that!? Robby’s influence continues in the lives of students every day here at Brookstone. Here’s a list of awards and honors our Fine Arts students have […]

Middle School Day of service was held last week and these middle school students put in some work! Together, they packed 12,096 meals that will help people in need all over the world.
