We had another great week of Distance Learning here at Brookstone! See some of the highlights below! Upper School We so enjoyed celebrating our seniors this week by surprising them with yard signs! Delivered by Dee Dee Branham, senior grade chair, Garry Sullivan, Upper School principal, and a few other helpers, we just want them to know how much they are loved! And in academic news, check out this lung model illustrating negative pressure created by senior Sanders Hinds for Mrs. Cynthia Lingo’s Anatomy and Physiology class! So impressive! Middle […]
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.

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!
