One of the greatest things about Brookstone is the multiple layers of support our students have.

Middle School Mathematical “Operations”

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 pics below of some of the challenge problems). But after some collaboration with their fellow “surgeons ” they break them down using the Order of Operations and “save their patient!”  Math is not always every child’s favorite subject so years ago I decided that I wanted to find ways to make it fun and memorable for the students to give them a way to tie a really positive memory to a difficult but accomplish-able concept!  When students “scrub-in” for their “surgery” they come into the classroom and are assigned to an “Operating Room.” They have five minutes to use the Order of Operations to solve each problem on their patient. They rotate through six different ORs during class time, but must pay attention to the “Code Blue” that goes off! If a Code Blue goes off they must run to that center to solve a “Critical Care Problem” together before […]

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 […]
