The Buddy Bench

We are so grateful to donors who continue to pour back into our school! Thank you to former parents and now current grandparents, Molly and Claude Scarbrough, who wanted to donate a “Buddy Bench!” The whole idea behind the Buddy Bench is simple – to foster friendships and inclusivity amongst our students! So if a student doesn’t have anyone to play with on the playground, they are to go and sit on the bench and wait! Other students are being taught to take notice and then join their friend on […]

Upper School Club Day!

Upper School Club Day was last week and it was a beautiful day on the quad to hold sign ups! One of the great things about Brookstone is the ability to be involved in a variety of activities! And with over 40 clubs to choose from, from academics to sports to the arts, there truly is something for everyone! Just to name a few, there’s a club for sign-language, coding, fishing, gardening, ornithology, investment, pre-med, music, dance, and school spirit to choose from. There’s even the Happy Club! Who doesn’t […]

Grateful Parents!

We know that there are great things happening at Brookstone School on any given day, but it’s always nice to hear feedback from parents!

My son had a […]

If the Shoe Fits…

Our third graders recently gave an amazing performance of “If the Shoe Fits!” based on the story of Cinderella. It is one of the cutest plays you’ve ever seen! After the show, one of our third grade teachers received the following email from a parent: My daughter came home this afternoon and was so proud of her performance that she wants to do the Brookstone drama camp and “try out for a bigger role when we do our class play next year.”  What have you done with my shy kid?  […]

Glass Blowing on the Quad

We have been celebrating the arts this spring, and yesterday, we were fortunate to have another incredibly talented artist visit our campus. Kelly Robertson, with Calvary Glass in Atlanta, spent most of the day sharing his gift with our students. Our youngest classes enjoyed choosing colors to accentuate a lovely glass flower, while the older students listened and asked questions about the physics and chemistry of glass blowing. The results? Absolutely beautiful!   Thank you to BPA and the Arts Alliance for making Kelly’s visit possible and all the many unique […]

Puppetry Comes Alive!

We are so grateful for an active and engaged parent association who makes great things happen for our school. They are simply the best! Last week, the BPA invited Lee Bryan, aka That Puppet Guy, to spend a week with our students as part of our annual Literature Live event. What he did with our students was nothing short of amazing! Though he put on fun and interactive shows with all of our Lower and Intermediate School students, our 5th graders had a special opportunity. They spent the week making life […]
