Our Alumni Office took a trip to the University of Georgia last week to take a few of our young alumni out to dinner! Because once a Cougar, always a Cougar – and what college student doesn’t love a free meal! The best part about being a part of the Brookstone family is that you are ALWAYS a part of the Brookstone family! Just to give you one example, the parents of one of our young alumni pictured above, sent Meg Godfrey, our Alumni Coordinator, to Athens with some things […]
Twenty-six years ago, a school record was set in the girls 4x400m. Just last week, these strong young women – Wells Roberts, Eva Sullivan, Anna Kate Helton, and Adrianna Hamilton – decimated that record, setting a new one of their own. The best part? With two freshman and two juniors, they’ll be back next year. To set even more records. Kudos to Coach Crowder and his staff for encouraging and pushing these student-athletes to do their best.
This past week was spectacular on our campus! The sun was shining, the birds were chirping and everything beautiful about spring was in the air! As we prepared for the annual Spring Arts Festival, our fabulous fine arts department brought art and music outside for everyone to enjoy! So classes of all kinds ventured outdoors, relishing the warmer weather, and learning from the beautiful environment that makes up our campus. It also was time for our third annual Market on the Quad! Gorgeous flowers and delicious homemade goods were on […]
Over spring break, 27 energetic Upper School students joined our two college counselors, Frances Berry and Jon Terrell, for our 18th Annual College Tour. That’s right! 18 years of college tours. That is impressive. Each year, our college counseling office takes a group of students to visit more than a dozen colleges on one of three routes. The 2019 tour focused on many of the schools in the Carolinas – going to 14 in total! That’s 14 schools in one week! Furman University Clemson University Wofford College University of South […]
Our students were BUSY over Spring Break! Many were traveling with families or enjoying a staycation at home, but one special group of seniors was able to go on the 19th annual trip to Oxford, England and stay at the Spencer House. The Spencer House on Woodstock Road in Oxford, England is owned by Columbus State University. The purchase of the house was made possible through the generosity of Mr. & Mrs. J. Kyle Spencer, loyal supporters of both CSU and Brookstone School. In 2010, through guidance from Interim Headmaster […]
It was a stormy day not long ago, but that did not stop our vocabulary words from being on parade! Spearheaded by Erin Trotter, our Lower School Librarian, the parade was the perfect way to celebrate the month of March – National Reading Awareness Month! Over the course of the month, Mrs. Trotter read The Word Collector by Peter H. Reynolds to all of the Lower and Intermediate students, which in turn inspired our Wear Your Favorite Word to School Day and Vocabulary Parade. She knew it would be a wonderful way to highlight the work […]
On the 13th annual Upper School Day of Service, as our students were spread across the community in partnership with local organizations, our seniors had a special service opportunity as they worked in our own Lower and Intermediate school classrooms with students. And as one who was able to observe the interactions in the various classrooms, let me just tell you that I’ve never seen anything so precious in all my life. It was AWESOME! The teachers loved it, the seniors loved it, and the little ones loved it. One […]
