We have the very best teachers in the entire world! Did you know today was International Dot Day? Neither did I! But it was an exciting day when one of our beloved art teachers, Deana Graham, to showed up to school today decked out in dots to promote the concept of “Making Your Mark!” Inspired by the book, The Dot, by Peter H. Reynolds, International Dot Day celebrates the story of a young girl who was challenged by one of her teachers to “make her mark.” Taking that concept to […]

The Brookstone community lost two incredibly dear and influential members this summer: Mr. Charles J. Cumiskey and Mr. Bill Turner. The impact these two men had on the Brookstone community and the Columbus community at large, cannot be overstated.

We hope by now you’ve seen the city blanketed with the Brookstone Be the One signs! And while many of you know what that means, we wanted to take some time to elaborate as well! Over the course of the past year, we’ve worked to refine our message and develop a way to effectively tell our school’s story.

With music playing, an enthusiastic crowd of teachers, football players, cheerleaders, and even Bubba the Cougar greeted our littlest students with hugs and high fives.

Not long afterward, […]
