Finishing Strong!

A message from Leigh Anne Floyd, our Lower School Principal. We began this unusual distance learning journey together over six weeks ago. None of us knew what to expect during this unprecedented event, and all of us – the teachers, parents, and students – were apprehensive. Even with these unsettled feelings, we started strong! We all started strong and determined to make this new set of circumstances work – and we did. You did. Your children did. And we did it well. Even though every single one of us has […]

Teacher Appreciation Week

If there is anything the past two months have taught us, it’s that our teachers are the ABSOLUTE BEST IN THE WORLD! We are so grateful! And to show them just a little token of that appreciation, our Brookstone Parents Association surprised all of our faculty members with “thank you” yard signs and some well-deserved goodies. Our teachers have worked tirelessly to ensure that our students remain connected and engaged and have continued to learn, grow, and thrive! They are heroes in my book every single day! Thank you, Brookstone […]

“Beloved Community”

As I scrolled through pictures on my phone this weekend, I smiled when I came across the memories of our visit to the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Center in Atlanta this past February. This trip was exciting in that we all headed out of town to visit a museum dedicated to a person who had made and continues to make an unforgettable mark on us as individuals, as a community, and as a larger society. Dr. King believed in what he called the “Beloved Community.” He defined the beloved […]

Sending Love to Our Seniors on Prom Night

The annual Brookstone Junior/Senior Prom was supposed to be last weekend, but due to the COVID-19 virus, had to be canceled. Still, our juniors wanted our seniors to know how much they were loved, so they sent them a little video shout out!  They also asked some of the senior teachers to deliver Prom gift bags that included their official Prom invitation and a few little keepsakes. It was more than just delivering the goodies, it was the sentiment behind it! We love our seniors and we join them in mourning all the milestones they are having to miss! One of the sweetest moments was captured on camera, featuring Senior Grade Chair, Dee Dee Branham and senior Parker Hicks. Parker’s father writes below: One of the best decisions my wife and I ever made was to send our children to Brookstone School. Just a few minutes ago our doorbell rang. We live in the middle of nowhere, so the doorbell ringing is a big deal. I opened the door to find Dee Dee Branham standing there with a gift for Parker. Tonight was supposed to be Parker’s senior prom. She delivered what was supposed to be the gifts from the junior class. Parker jumped up as soon as he heard Dee Dee’s voice — and with no thought just ran and hugged her. This is the most emotional I have felt through all of this — and I will be […]
