When a former student comes back to share…

Upper School Biology teacher, Cynthia Lingo, had a surprise visitor last week! Jabez Beazer, Class of 2011, came back to school to share the news that he had just been accepted into Morehouse College School of Medicine. And since Mrs. Lingo had played such a role in his time here at Brookstone, he had to come back and share the news with her in person.

Lower School Science

The lower school science room is one of my favorite places to visit. It is always full of life, energy, and activity. And teacher Helen Varner, whom is often affectionately referred to as “Ms. Frizzle,” is beloved by all!

So, with her permission, I am sharing this email she sent out recently to the Brookstone faculty… I just have to share this science wonderfulness with my Brookstone family… After […]

Weather for Writing

Brookstone has the most beautiful campus in Columbus, Georgia hands down. That’s why our teachers get our kids outside as much as possible. After all, who doesn’t get inspiration from such beautiful surroundings! Enjoy these pictures of Mrs. Powers 2nd Grade writers in action. There is nothing more precious than watching these little minds at work! Seeing them outside and soaking it all in…it’s one of the many reasons I am grateful to be at Brookstone. For more precious pictures like these, follow us on Facebook at Brookstone School (Official).

Parenting is Tough. Seek Wisdom.

Parenting is tough. No doubt about it. Do you ever feel like you mistake one after another? Or do you ever feel like you have no idea what the right choice is in any given situation? Do you ever simply pray your children grow into responsible, productive members of society IN SPITE of the mistakes you’ve made? Me, too. That’s why we are thrilled to host Dr. Tim Elmore, president of Growing Leaders, next Tuesday, March 8th at 6:00 in the Turner Center. He’s going to talk to us about the […]

College Counseling

College Counseling is one of the greatest things Brookstone does for its families. And I say that as one who has been through it and is currently going through it for the second time! Just look what all they have planned for this month! Mind you, this is just for the month of February. We get one of these every single month with new events, new colleges visits and new reminders! WE ARE SO GRATEFUL! They also announced the TWO college tour visits coming up in the next year – one at […]
