Any time our Upper School students get to work alongside our Lower and Intermediate school students, it’s a special thing. And Cub Track might just be one of my all time favorite examples! For several weeks each spring, our Varsity Track team works with our younger students, teaching them the ins and outs of track and field events. This culminates in a grand track meet pitting the “Blue” and “White” teams against each other! Enjoy these pictures from the event!! The future looks bright for Brookstone Track! (And not that […]
It’s true! The Brookstone Varsity Girls Tennis team just won the area championship for the 45th year in a row! That’s correct! Every year since 1973, our girls have clinched the title – for 45 straight years! We don’t like the throw around the word “Dynasty” loosely, but I think we could make a pretty strong claim in this instance! Congratulations, girls! On to the next round!
We have been celebrating the arts this spring, and yesterday, we were fortunate to have another incredibly talented artist visit our campus. Kelly Robertson, with Calvary Glass in Atlanta, spent most of the day sharing his gift with our students. Our youngest classes enjoyed choosing colors to accentuate a lovely glass flower, while the older students listened and asked questions about the physics and chemistry of glass blowing. The results? Absolutely beautiful! Thank you to BPA and the Arts Alliance for making Kelly’s visit possible and all the many unique […]
We are so grateful for an active and engaged parent association who makes great things happen for our school. They are simply the best! Last week, the BPA invited Lee Bryan, aka That Puppet Guy, to spend a week with our students as part of our annual Literature Live event. What he did with our students was nothing short of amazing! Though he put on fun and interactive shows with all of our Lower and Intermediate School students, our 5th graders had a special opportunity. They spent the week making life […]
Congratulations to sophomore Sanders Hinds, who was recently named Ledger-Enquirer Female Athlete of the week! Not only that, but she earned a spot in Brookstone School history! Congratulations, Sanders! The article from the Ledger is copied below: Brookstone sophomore Sanders Hinds turned to coach Karen Hearn during Hinds’ practice round the night before the Maple Ridge Junior Girls Classic. “She said to me, ‘I always play so well just out here playing. I’m really going to try and have that attitude tomorrow,’” Hearn said. “I’m assuming that’s what she ended up with, thinking, ‘I’m […]
Even though students might be out for Spring Break, that certainly doesn’t mean the learning ever stops! We had four groups of students traveling on official school trips that spanned the globe. One group of Upper School students set off on a College Tour. Over the course of the week, the 15 students and two college counselors traveled over 1,800 miles and visited 12 different colleges! They had special visits with the alumni attending these schools and even one special visit with a former faculty member! Every year at Spring […]
