Actual Upper School Insights

Sometimes there are so many great things going on to share them all, so consider this a compilation of a few, but not all, of things going on in the Upper School! Mrs. Lumsden’s AP Environmental class took a field trip to the local marina looking for macro invertebrates and also because of the large amount of solid waste pollution, did a clean up while there. They found mussels and a few fish, but very few macro invertebrates. They then decided to follow up with a water quality test. As […]

Angst: Raising Awareness Around Anxiety

Here at Brookstone, we feel it is important to equip our families with tools they need to navigate the various aspects of raising kids, and that often extends beyond academics.  I am grateful for a school that offers educational opportunities for both parents and students on relevant topics that we all deal with on a daily basis.

So as I walked to the cafeteria last week, I loved spotting Dr. Harkey’s Crime and Punishment class gathered around Courtney’s Pond and discussing Dante’s Inferno. Sometimes, just the very thing you need to inspire good conversation […]

The Buddy Bench

We are so grateful to donors who continue to pour back into our school! Thank you to former parents and now current grandparents, Molly and Claude Scarbrough, who wanted to donate a “Buddy Bench!” The whole idea behind the Buddy Bench is simple – to foster friendships and inclusivity amongst our students! So if a student doesn’t have anyone to play with on the playground, they are to go and sit on the bench and wait! Other students are being taught to take notice and then join their friend on […]
