Kudos to our teachers and administrators for creating an environment as special as the one here at Brookstone. As a parent, there is nothing more gratifying than to see your child blossom and grow. My son had a […]

Student-Led Conferences

This past week was conference day for our Intermediate School students and parents. However, this particular conference is a little bit different because it is led by the students – not the teachers. Full disclosure – this blog is first and foremost written from a parent’s point of view! But suffice it to say, was I impressed. The first thing he did was to welcome us and thank us for coming. Sweet boy. Then he proceeded to review the entire year’s worth of work: his favorite assignments in each subject,  his […]

Graduation Festivities Begin!

Wednesday, we kicked off graduation week in full swing! It began with our yearbook assembly! Presented to the students by yearbook editor, Sarah Beth Amos, this year’s theme was “Blueprints.” In her remarks, Sarah Beth said, “This year’s theme is “Blueprints”.

Seniors’ Last Day!

Yesterday was a bittersweet day as it was the last day of school for our seniors- barring AP exams. And to celebrate the occasion, they donned t-shirts sporting their college or university choice for the next year! Not everyone is pictured, but it was fun to snap a few! So in the coming months, these kids might be saying, “Go Dawgs,” “War Eagle,” “Go Cavs” or “Go Bobcats,” but they will always be Cougars to us! The Class of 2018 has indeed made us proud and we know great things […]

They had special visits with the alumni attending these schools and even one special visit with a former faculty member! Every year at Spring […]
