We hope you enjoy the newest Brookstone video. This video highlights some of the amazing things our Brookstone students experience every day. And the greatest part about this video, in my opinion, is the fact that it authentically captures what happens in classrooms, on the stage and on the field. These kids were actually in the classes depicted or the performances highlighted. The students were actually working or practicing or playing while we were filming. It’s 100% true to life, which makes it all the more special. We hope you enjoy this […]
On December 22, Senior basketball player Chris Edmonds scored his 1000th point as a Brookstone Cougar, becoming only the 7th player in Brookstone’s history to reach this milestone. At 1057 points (not counting the points in last week’s victory over Schley County), Chris is currently the third all-time leading scorer at Brookstone. What an amazing accomplishment and an equally amazing young man. We are all so proud of you, Chris! *Photo credits to Deron Hicks and Tiffany Grier.
It’s Christmas time and even though final exams are in full swing, there is a festive feeling around campus! Here are a few snapshots from campus celebrations! The faculty celebrated with breakfast and a rousing game of “Who’s the Boss?” Our division heads and their respective administrative assistants took on one another in a head to head challenge! Upper School technology teacher and guidance counselor, Jacob Crowder, was our emcee and he took his duties very seriously! We also had a special guest show up in carpool later that morning […]
Last week, on Wednesday, November 28th, a number of faculty and 50 students took part on a field trip to Montgomery, AL to visit the Legacy Museum followed by a visit at the Equal Justice Initiative (ELJ). EJI was founded by Bryan Stevenson, author of our 2018 all-school-read Just Mercy. Students were able to take in all the exhibits, visit with members of the EJI, and do some hands-on activities dealing with some very difficult topics. One of the highlights was being able to visit with Kuntrell Jackson, who was featured […]
Our teachers here at Brookstone are hands-down, bar-none, undeniably THE BEST. They love our kids, they encourage our kids, and they tirelessly pour out their lives into our kids. I am so grateful for each and every teacher who has been a part of my children’s lives. But our teachers are more than just really awesome people, which goes without saying. Our teachers are also professionals. And Brookstone’s commitment to professional learning and development is unsurpassed. This year alone, over the past six months, we have had teachers attend the […]
It was the perfect day for a “Book Tasting!” Today, Mrs. Trotter arranged for our second graders to have a “Book Tasting.” What is that, you might ask? It’s a beautifully set table designed to quickly sample books! The students were invited to sit and read the description of the book at their place and if they were interested in reading it in its entirety, they were to write the name and author on an index card. When the bell rang, they were to move to another spot and pick […]
