Congratulations to the Brookstone Cougars for their win over Jordan High School this past Friday night! Brookstone opened the season on a hot and muggy August night with a hard-fought 49-32 victory over Jordan, at A.J. McClung Memorial Stadium. Sophomore RB/DB Jeremiah Burgess tallied the first two touchdowns of the game. The first on offense with a 14 yard scamper off of an option pitch from Russell Blanchard.

A Letter to Our Kids

Please enjoy this letter, sent out via email to our intermediate school parents this morning. What a powerful message for our children. Dear Intermediate School Parents. Are you ready?  We are!  School begins tomorrow (7:45 will be here before we know it), and many of you may have some back to school traditions to start off the new school year.  Others may be exhausted from decorating lockers and back to school shopping and will do what you can to get everyone fed and in bed early.  A friend shared with me a post from a parenting blog (a letter written to a son from his mom), and I have paraphrased it a bit to share with you.  It is my hope that you will find a way to share it with your son or daughter as he/she gets ready to begin a new school year.  Fifth grade parents, I know you received this last year, but I would love for you to share it again.  Dear Chase, Tomorrow is a big day.  Fourth (fifth) Grade – wow!  When I was in fourth grade, there was a little boy in my class named Adam.

I don’t think his parents reminded him like yours do. The other kids teased Adam a lot. Whenever they did, his head […]

  I have often told prospective parents that one of my favorite aspects of the lower school curriculum is the writing. And that is first and foremost because I am a parent! And I LOVE to write. So seeing that love passed onto this next generation makes my heart sing. Our curriculum takes writing to a different level. Our students truly understand genre, nuances, point of view, and writing styles. They are being taught how to think as writers every bit as much as they are taught to be readers. […]
