Brookstone DLP Week Six

Week Six is in the books for Brookstone DLP and it’s hard to believe how quickly this year is coming to a close. And there are too many positive things to even list about our students, our teachers, our parents, our community. It has been remarkable in every way to see everyone rise to the occasion and tackle distance learning with such energy and enthusiasm, even they are exhausted!

Some Week Six highlights are below!

Brookstone Heroes

Once again, it is an honor to thank the many Brookstone family members who are doing their part to serve others during this pandemic. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Earth Day Celebration

How did Mrs. Lynn Robertson’s #BrookstoneMiddleSchool 8th grade science students celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day? By decorating their sidewalks and driveways. Take a look at this amazing work!

Upper School Dissection

Distance learning even includes earthworm dissection! Our Honors Biology class had their dissection kit arrive in the mail to their homes and the fun began!

Up next – pigs! Should be fun! 🙂

Why Brookstone? Team Work is WHY!

From Leigh Anne Floyd: Each week I have Zoom meetings with each grade level, as well as with my elective teachers and coaches. During our time of distance learning, I eagerly await these meetings. I miss my team, and I love seeing how well they work together – even if it is from a distance.

I am eagerly anticipating our return to campus and being reunited face-to-face with my incredible Lower School team; I miss them so!  Teamwork is Why Brookstone?

Love from our First Grade Teachers

Though distance learning is made easier through technology, we certainly miss the in-person connection with our students. Our first-grade teachers wanted to make sure their students knew just how much they are missed.
