We are so grateful for our counseling department and the many ways they serve our Brookstone family throughout the school year. We are especially grateful for the way they continue to engage our students and parents during this unique time. Please see the email below sent to families this week. Brookstone Parents, Balancing life has become a bit trickier than usual these days. Parents are especially feeling the strain of work, child care, and self-care. It can be incredibly difficult to know what to say to our children about dealing […]
Creativity doesn’t stop even if school looks different these days! Enjoy the beautiful “color wheels” made by our Lower School students and inspired by their art teacher extraordinaire, Mama D!
Prospective Brookstone Families, Please see the letter below from Marty Lester, our Head of School, sent last week to our Brookstone families. As a school, we are not alone in making these hard decisions. It is an unprecedented time for all of us everywhere. I am grateful for the leadership of our administrative team at Brookstone and for the incredible amount of hard work they have put forth to ensure the remainder of the school year, though it will look different, will be productive, effective, and memorable to say the […]
Distance Learning couldn’t stop our 2nd Annual Vocabulary Parade! This year, we just held the parade digitally. We have the most precious families and wonderful parents in the world! Or maybe I should choose some more descriptive words for such an occasion – remarkable, awe-inspiring, stupendous, and flat-out fabulous come to mind! Enjoy!

Among the many things we are grateful for, we are grateful for the folks at Zoom, who have allowed us all to remain close even when we are apart! So what’s a first-grade class to do when they can’t be together? They have a Zoom Homeroom, of course! What a wonderful way to allow these little ones to see and talk to their friends! Thank you, Zoom!
We know the past few weeks have been extraordinary in every way – from what is happening in the world around us to the adaptations we are all having to make. Our teachers have truly gone above and beyond in taking what they do in their classrooms every day and moving it online. They have not been satisfied with simply providing work to be completed, but they have been dedicated to providing our students with experiences that make them feel like they are right back in their classrooms! But of […]
Every year around the New Year, I pray and ponder over choosing one word to focus on for the rest of the year – kind of like a theme for the year. My word for 2020 was “new.” There was going to be a lot of “new” for me in 2020 – a wedding for my oldest son, and along with that a new daughter-in-law, a new phase of life for them and for our family. So at the time, I thought that word was appropriate. I would focus on […]
Since January, the Brookstone Admin team has been meeting continuously with regard to COVID-19. At first, our main area of concern was the health and safety of our international students and their families. However, our concerns quickly grew as the news began to change. We began planning and preparing and putting things into place just in case we had to shift to online learning. So when we indeed had to make the decision to move to an all-online platform, it did not catch us off guard. We were ready. We’ve […]
