Celebrating Our Retiring Teachers!

As we come to the end of another school year, we celebrate the retirement of an amazing group of educators, some of our longest serving faculty members. To say we will miss them is an understatement. These teachers have decades and decades of combined years at Brookstone. Multiply that by the number of students they have taught and the impact they have had is simply immeasurable. We wish them all the best as they move onto the next chapter of their lives, but they will always be a part of […]

Month of the Military Child 2022

April is the Month of the Military Child, a time to honor the sacrifices made by military families worldwide with an emphasis on the experience of the dependent children of military members serving at home and overseas.  As part of our Month of the Military Child celebration, which included a special breakfast, Purple Up! Day, and more, students learned that the dandelion is the official flower of the military child. Do you know why? The dandelion can put down roots almost anywhere and thrive. They adapt easily and stand ready to fly into breezes that take them to […]

Thank you, Brookstone Teachers!

As we celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week, it is only fitting to honor those teachers with an official, “Thank you.” Thank you for what you do day in and day out and for the many ways, often unacknowledged, that you pour yourselves out for the sake of your students. We simply cannot say thank you enough. Here at Brookstone, people matter. Our students matter and they know they matter. They know our teachers are FOR them, fighting for them, working on their behalf, and doing everything they can to provide the […]

Celebrating 70 Years – A Look Back at Brookstone

Throughout this school year we have enjoyed celebrating Brookstone’s 70 anniversary – 70 years that encompass a remarkable history and vision built on a solid foundation of values.  This important milestone has given us a chance to celebrate our founding, reflect on our success, revel in the sense of community we’ve built over seven decades, and imagine our next 70 years.  To celebrate the 70th anniversary, we invited several people to reflect on Brookstone’s history in a video story. Two things were evident, the values that Brookstone was founded on […]

15th Annual Upper School Day of Service

Just before Spring Break, our Upper School students took part of Brookstone’s 15th annual Day of Service. Spreading out around the Columbus area, our students partnered with 14 different local agencies to help them with everything from painting to landscaping to playing with kids! Before the work began, we gathered our students together to hear from a special guest. Brookstone parent Colonel Jim Hathaway, soon to return Ft. Benning to command the 198th Infantry Brigade, visited with our students and spoke about Servant Leadership and how we can offer hope […]

It’s Great to Be a Brookstone Cougar!

A recent social media post from one of our 5th grade teachers summed up perfectly the bond our students and teachers share here at Brookstone. She wrote: “I was on the playground with my kiddos today when one of my ‘former’ kiddos walked up and gave me a hug! As our school continues to grow, it takes engineers and brains to plan and oversee! You are looking at the TOP DOG!!! I am so proud of you, Tim! This makes it all worthwhile. Precious child; dynamic young man!!! HARD WORK […]

Middle School Trip Week 2021

For the first time in two years, we were able to send our Middle School students out on the road for their annual class trips! Our 8th-graders headed to the beautiful moutains of Flat Rock, North Carolina to camp and hike. Our 7th-graders got to spend some time in lovely, historic Savannah, Georgia. And our 6th-grade students enjoyed a one day excursion to Desoto Caverns in Childersburg, Alabama. Though it was a rainy week for everyone, memories were made, life lessons learned, and fun was had by all!
