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! Below is an excerpt from an email sent to Leigh Anne Floyd, our Lower and Intermediate School Principal, from one of our new families, shared with their permission. 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 […]

If the Shoe Fits…

Grease is the Word!

You might have seen the 57 Chevy parked out in front of the Turner Center recently and the interior foyer turned into a classic 1950s soda shoppe! It was all to help stage the scene for the beloved production of the musical Grease. Well over 100 Upper School students took part as actors, designers, managers, musicians and crew to bring the musical to life. The result was a sold-out run and performances that were simply amazing! Many thanks is also due to the BPA and the Arts Alliance for their work […]
