Counselors’ Corner – Fall 2020

One of the greatest things about Brookstone is the multiple layers of support our students have. From teachers, to advisors, to grade chairs, to coaches, to counselors – our students are surrounded by amazing faculty and staff pouring into their lives and cheering them on.

Halloween, like so many other things this year, might look a bit different, but we still had a whole lot of fun!

And a huge thank you goes to our Upper School thespians for putting on a “spooktacular” event for our Lower and Intermediate School students to enjoy! Happy Halloween!

Preschool and Lower School Week of Service

Servant Leadership is embedded in our culture in every way. Of course, thanks to COVID-19, our weeks of service might look a little different this year, but the heart behind them remains the same. We want to teach our kids empathy, compassion, and how serving others is a way of life. The students prepared bags for a variety of local agencies here in town – PAWS, Easter Seals, Brookside Glen, Ronald McDonald House, and Open Door. They also made goody bags for the Soldier Recovery Unit at Ft. Benning. COVID-19 […]

Thank you, Teachers!

We’ve been in school for seven weeks now and we felt it was time to share the gratitude our parents feel for our teachers! Being a teacher in the best of times is always full of challenges, but teaching during a pandemic, balancing in-person and virtual learning, has elevated everything to new levels. So the least we can do is to THANK THEM! Because they are pouring themselves out on behalf of our children and we are so incredibly grateful for the work they do every day.  So below are […]
