On the 13th annual Upper School Day of Service, as our students were spread across the community in partnership with local organizations, our seniors had a special service opportunity as they worked in our own Lower and Intermediate school classrooms with students. And as one who was able to observe the interactions in the various classrooms, let me just tell you that I’ve never seen anything so precious in all my life. It was AWESOME! The teachers loved it, the seniors loved it, and the little ones loved it. One […]

The Agri-Colga student group from Brookstone spent time recently filling the planting beds at our partner school, Fox Elementary! These upper school students are mentoring Fox students this spring teaching them how to grow their own healthy vegetables at their school. Students in the program, initiated and led by senior Emma Yancey, will go to Fox once a week after school to work with a designated group of students. We can’t see what “grows” out of this beautiful partnership!
