We are all longing for a bit of normalcy these days! Remember way back when – when we were in classrooms and on campuses? Oh – the good old days – days we certainly hope to return to soon! With that in mind, we wanted to highlight one of our sweetest Lower School classes – our Kindergarten – and reflect on all of the ways it is so special here at Brookstone! So what makes Kindergarten at Brookstone so special? Our Head of Lower School, Leigh Anne Floyd writes, Kindergarten […]

Finishing Strong!

A message from Leigh Anne Floyd, our Lower School Principal. We began this unusual distance learning journey together over six weeks ago. None of us knew what to expect during this unprecedented event, and all of us – the teachers, parents, and students – were apprehensive. Even with these unsettled feelings, we started strong! We all started strong and determined to make this new set of circumstances work – and we did. You did. Your children did. And we did it well. Even though every single one of us has […]

Teacher Appreciation Week

If there is anything the past two months have taught us, it’s that our teachers are the ABSOLUTE BEST IN THE WORLD! We are so grateful! And to show them just a little token of that appreciation, our Brookstone Parents Association surprised all of our faculty members with “thank you” yard signs and some well-deserved goodies. Our teachers have worked tirelessly to ensure that our students remain connected and engaged and have continued to learn, grow, and thrive! They are heroes in my book every single day! Thank you, Brookstone […]

So What Now? A Letter to My Students

A Letter from Mr. Garry Sullivan, Head of Upper and Middle Schools Good evening students, I know the message you received from Mr. Lester yesterday was not what you, or any of us, would have wanted to hear.

To my Senior Class of 2020 – We can’t begin to understand the emotions you are experiencing about your senior year being stripped away from you […]
