Congratulations to the Brookstone Middle and Intermediate Reading Bowl teams! They recently competed in the 2019 Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl. Under the expert guidance of Mrs. Stacy Pease and Mrs. Mia Rice, both teams did extremely well. This was only the Middle School’s 4th year to compete, and they finished in third place. They were also the only independent Middle School to field a team. The Intermediate School team made their mark by answering the most questions correctly in each of their six rounds! Well done, Cougars! Sutton Hastings, Eve Stinson, […]
The Agri-Colga student group from Brookstone spent time recently filling the planting beds at our partner school, Fox Elementary! These upper school students are mentoring Fox students this spring teaching them how to grow their own healthy vegetables at their school. Students in the program, initiated and led by senior Emma Yancey, will go to Fox once a week after school to work with a designated group of students. We can’t see what “grows” out of this beautiful partnership!
Congratulations to senior Caleb Patillo for being chosen the Kinetic Credit Union Scholar Athlete of the Week! We are so incredibly proud of the example he sets on the athletic field and in the classroom. Caleb plans to attend Auburn University in the fall! Congratulations are well deserved!
We hope you enjoy the newest Brookstone video. This video highlights some of the amazing things our Brookstone students experience every day. And the greatest part about this video, in my opinion, is the fact that it authentically captures what happens in classrooms, on the stage and on the field. These kids were actually in the classes depicted or the performances highlighted. The students were actually working or practicing or playing while we were filming. It’s 100% true to life, which makes it all the more special. We hope you enjoy this […]
On December 22, Senior basketball player Chris Edmonds scored his 1000th point as a Brookstone Cougar, becoming only the 7th player in Brookstone’s history to reach this milestone. At 1057 points (not counting the points in last week’s victory over Schley County), Chris is currently the third all-time leading scorer at Brookstone. What an amazing accomplishment and an equally amazing young man. We are all so proud of you, Chris! *Photo credits to Deron Hicks and Tiffany Grier.
It’s Christmas time and even though final exams are in full swing, there is a festive feeling around campus! Here are a few snapshots from campus celebrations! The faculty celebrated with breakfast and a rousing game of “Who’s the Boss?” Our division heads and their respective administrative assistants took on one another in a head to head challenge! Upper School technology teacher and guidance counselor, Jacob Crowder, was our emcee and he took his duties very seriously! We also had a special guest show up in carpool later that morning […]
Last week, on Wednesday, November 28th, a number of faculty and 50 students took part on a field trip to Montgomery, AL to visit the Legacy Museum followed by a visit at the Equal Justice Initiative (ELJ). EJI was founded by Bryan Stevenson, author of our 2018 all-school-read Just Mercy. Students were able to take in all the exhibits, visit with members of the EJI, and do some hands-on activities dealing with some very difficult topics. One of the highlights was being able to visit with Kuntrell Jackson, who was featured […]
