So What Now? A Letter to My Students

A Letter from Mr. Garry Sullivan, Head of Upper and Middle Schools Good evening students, I know the message you received from Mr. Lester yesterday was not what you, or any of us, would have wanted to hear.

To my Senior Class of 2020 – We can’t begin to understand the emotions you are experiencing about your senior year being stripped away from you […]

Brookstone Parents say “Thank you!”

We know the past few weeks have been extraordinary in every way – from what is happening in the world around us to the adaptations we are all having to make.
