Memories Made

It is impossible to highlight all the things that are happening on this busy campus during the month of May.  In fact, do we not all agree that May is by far the busiest month of the year?  However, it is busy with a lot of good things and many reasons to celebrate. A couple of highlights: Our Baseball Team What a way to end the year.  These young men represented our school so well, making it all the way to the final four in the state playoffs.  Fans packed […]

1st Grade Writing and 8th Grade Speech

Today, I got to witness two amazing things that Brookstone teaches so well – writing and speaking. First, my sweet third child gave his 8th grade speech – standing in the same spot I delivered mine nearly 30 years ago.

I say this without hesitation […]

Brookstone in the Springtime

This week has been one of those weeks that reminds me of all the reasons I love this school.  The weather has been postcard perfect, the skies are a spectacular blue, the trees are budding and the birds are singing.  It’s just absolutely beautiful. But it’s more than the beautiful campus that makes me love this school.  It’s the people here.  It’s the students.  It’s the teachers – working together, growing together, learning together.  The campus is alive with activity and I get to see it all first hand.  Iit […]
