It’s Forest Friday – one of our favorite days of the week! What is Forest Friday? Forest Friday is for our Lower School students in kindergarten through third grade. We have such an amazingly beautiful campus and Forest Friday is all about connecting with nature, outdoor learning, and instilling adventure and exploration in our students. After all, research shows that students get minimal outdoor time these days and are spending more time indoors in front of screens and various other technologies. At the same time, research also shows that more time […]
It was a wonderful first day and we are looking forward to the best year yet! We love our Brookstone Cougars!
Our new faculty have been hard at work this week as they’ve been through New Teacher Orientation! In addition to working in their classrooms and learning more about Brookstone, they also experienced their first Developmental Sprint facilitated by the Blanchard Leadership Institute. What an incredible group of educators and a wonderful time spent together! It’s going to be an amazing year!
Best wishes and “Break a Leg” to the cast and crew of “How to Eat Like a Child!” This incredibly talented group of students, under the direction of theatre teachers Robby and Dotty Davis, were invited to perform in front of international audiences at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in Edinburg, Scotland. We are so proud of them! Enjoy this behind the scenes look at the production and interviews with the actors and directors. What an amazing opportunity! Why Brookstone? For Endless Opportunities like this.
With gratitude for a wonderful school year…Enjoy your summer!!!
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
