Welcome to @Brookstone. Look for this e-mail bi-monthly, to include all of the news from Brookstone.

A Heart for Service - One of the goals for our students at Brookstone is to help create in every child an awareness of community service. At the end of last year Brookstone School formed a Service Committee made up of Trustees, Parents and Faculty to develop a plan for service and leadership development for our students. The primary vision was defined as growing a heart for service in Brookstone students and developing students into servant leaders.

To add to our plan, Brookstone School was selected to partner with a team from the Institute for Leadership at UGA's Terry College of Business to develop a model of developing service among our students. Working along with the team from the Leonard Leadership Scholars Program (UGA Dream Team) the committee planned a year full of opportunities.

Fox Elementary One of the most exciting opportunities has been the partnership between Brookstone and Fox Elementary School, a Title One Muscogee County School, that includes grades Pre- K through Fifth. The enrollment at Fox is at a 93% poverty rate.  Brookstone students have been providing hours of service to Fox through many activities. Fox will be the focus of our February 3rd School-wide Service Day.

In the true spirit of the holidays, 
and as part of our continued efforts to teach our children the importance of a heart for service, we would like to offer your family the opportunity to support two Brookstone families:

Hudson Family - Jeff and Libby Hudson lost their home, vehicle and most of their furnishings and personal items to a fire after Thanksgiving. Ridley is in Pre-K and her sister, Carter is two years old. Thankfully no one was injured. Click here to find out how you can support the Hudson's.

Parent to Parent -
Here's what one Brookstone parent had to say about the September P2P workshop:

"I would recommend Parent to Parent to others because it teaches and reinforces actions and values that help children succeed.  It gave me insight into thinking about what I can do to keep my child on the right course."

"It's not too late to register for the January classes!  You may register online or call Kent Butler 324-6951."
