On the Friday before Spring Break, we held our annual 13th annual Upper School Day of Service. And what a wonderful day it was! Our 9th and 11th Grade classes worked with organizations across the Columbus area, including Open Door, Feeding the Valley, Truth Springs Academy, The Boys and Girls Club, Columbus Dream Center, Fox Elementary School, Damascus Way, Valley Rescue Mission, and Girls’ Inc. Back here on campus, our 10th Grade class held a special carnival for our friends at Easter Seals. Students were paired one on one with our […]
Our students were busy over spring break (more blog posts to follow!) But one trip, in particular, gave some of our Upper School students the chance of a lifetime – the opportunity to perform in Carnegie Hall! Karen Hearn, Brookstone Music Director, began rehearsing with 16 students in January for the Children of Peace concert held in Carnegie Hall. Hours and hours of rehearsals were held after school to prepare for this performance. The Brookstone students joined with five other schools from New York, New Jersey, North Carolina, Florida, and […]
Earlier this year, our first-grade classes hosted a special event to showcase the travels of Flat Bubba – based on the Flat Stanley book series. And Flat Bubba has been all over the world! They were eager to share in his adventures! But now, we have big news to share! Flat Bubba, who has literally been all over the world this year, has recently returned from his most prestigious trip yet – to the White House! Yes, you read that right, Flat Bubba has just returned from the White House […]
Sometimes you just need some cuteness in your life. And what better way than to do that than to have baby goats come visit our Kindergarten classes! There’s pretty much nothing cuter. Thanks to the Hord family for sharing their new babies!
It might be springtime, but our football players already have next season on their mind! And from the looks of it now, it’s going to be a good one! See the following email excerpt from our Varsity Football Coach, Blair Harrison: Our football team just finished our “winter phase” of our strength program. I have traditionally sent a communication on how we are doing to our football parents. But in all honesty, I am using this platform to brag on our players! They have been working so hard and I […]
From Leigh Anne Floyd, our Lower and Intermediate School Principal… What a fun time we’ve had in the Lower and Intermediate Schools celebrating National Reading Awareness month. A big thank you goes out to Erin Trotter and Joe Mills for creating the fun calendar of activities, and thank you to the teachers and students for embracing it all as they celebrated their love of reading. I had the magical opportunity this week to read with 3K student, Brantley Hayes. She was one of the winners from the Dr. Seuss raffle. […]
Georgia Southwestern State University held their Junior Math Tournament recently. Twenty four students from Brookstone grades 3rd-6th attended and they represented us well! On our 6th grade team, Ankita Nukala placed first, Ava Chang fourth, and Nancy Schley fifth (out of 140). The 5th-grade team held their own in a field of 320, with Weezie Turner finishing in the top 15. Max Lopez took first place for fourth grade. 3rd-grade competition was intense, with the field narrowing from 200 to eight before the last Cougar was eliminated. Congratulations to all […]
