Middle School Day of service was held last week and these middle school students put in some work! Together, they packed 12,096 meals that will help people in need all over the world. Working with Rise Against Hunger, they measured, packed, sealed and boxed thousands of meals over the course of the day! One student said, “I’m having fun AND helping people!” Grateful for our Servant Leadership Department that makes days like these happen! And thanks to everyone involved for a wonderful experience all the way around!
The sun has been shining and temperatures are beginning to rise, so our students have enjoyed being outside a little more recently. We’re so grateful for our beautiful campus and the spaces our students can learn and play. Spring can’t get here fast enough! Enjoy!
In January, Brookstone celebrated the contributions of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by honoring the theme of “Voices of Change.” The overall purpose of this theme was twofold: to remember the strength, perseverance, and integrity of one who is the voice of one of history’s quintessential movements for change and to know that his legacy continues on in all of us. As one part of our celebration of “Voices of Change,” students were asked to enter Brookstone’s very first Poetry Slam. Poetry Slams originated in Chicago, Illinois, as a way to […]

Why Brookstone? Why should I choose to send my child to Brookstone? These are questions often asked of us in the admissions department and they are valid questions. Why? What sets up apart? What makes Brookstone so unique? So we got to work to find our answer. Our faculty, administration, and Board of Trustees began working and surveying and researching to determine just what is it that sets Brookstone apart. And over and over again, these are the things that rose to the top. Here at Brookstone, PEOPLE MATTER. We […]
Halloween, like so many other things this year, might look a bit different, but we still had a whole lot of fun! Our Preschoolers, all decked out in their Halloween Finest, got to parade by our Middle School kiddos (who had their own Halloween fun in class!) 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!
Want to see how math is made fun? Just take a peek into Mrs. Leatherwood’s 6th grade math class as they take part in some serious “operations!” From Mrs. Leatherwood: I just love to see how excited the kids are collaborating with their partners to solve some really challenging math problems, and when they get through them (the Operation) their celebration. At the beginning they sit down at the “Operation Table” and I hear them say there is no way they can solve these problems – they are huge!! (See […]

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 […]
