Carpool Lane Parking
Outside of morning and afternoon carpool times, briefly parking in the carpool lane is generally allowed (e.g., when picking up a student early or dropping off late).
All cars should be moved... Read More

This afternoon, I’m returning from the Cove, having spent some quality time at our incredible Burgundy Center for Wildlife Studies campus with the Viceroys. Rain is not the weather we hope for when we set out to the Cove, but I can tell you that seeing so many shades of green, even in the rain, is somehow grounding and delightful, and seeing our kids so engaged, with little care about the weather, is always inspiring!
Cove trips also are the surest signal that the school year is racing to... Read More

Annual Giving helps to support the wealth of opportunities our curriculum offers students at the Cove. Funding helps to maintain Cove facilities and more. The bus that gets students and chaperones to and from Burgundy is an... Read More

Next week the Class of 2018 will put on this year's 8th grade musical, the timeless classic Peter Pan! The 8th grade musical is always a highlight of the school year and a rite of passage of the 8th graders’ individual and collective journeys. This year, the play is even more special because it’s the first major drama production in the new Logan Loft!
Younger students, parents, and faculty and staff will delight in the reprisal of their favorite characters from Peter to Captain Hook to... Read More
Families — as adults and children are around the barnyard, please keep these rules and guidelines in mind so all may be safe and sound. Poppy and Topaz are integrating into the herd and will be seen outside in the pasture! Topaz is very social and loves attention, so it is important that we all remember a few rules when visiting her, so that she feels safe and we can start training her well!
Pet on Topaz on her front end. She likes to be pet on her neck and shoulders where she can see hands... Read More

Springtime is a time for new growth, and that’s been even more apparent in the Burgundy barnyard recently with the birth of Poppy’s foal! A few weeks ago, we didn’t know when the foal would be born or what color she would be. But a year ago, we didn’t know we would have the opportunity to rescue a pregnant Poppy and bring her to Burgundy. Annual Giving helps to support the wealth of opportunities our curriculum offers all our students, including the care of animals and the maintenance of the... Read More
Art teachers Mary Iannone and Annie Rocha recently attended a STEAM conference (focused on the integration of science, technology, engineering, art, and math) at the National Cathedral School to help gain knowledge for our Makerspace program for the coming school year. Gifts to Annual Giving help make professional development opportunities like this possible. At the conference, Mary and Annie networked with a variety of teachers from many different grade levels and subject areas, and even met a... Read More

We’ll call the filly Topaz! The Burgundy community offered a lot of suggestions, and the idea of “Topaz” came from Melissa Koval, parent of 8th grader Rowan Smith. In the announcement, Anna explained “Topaz is a gemstone and she’s our little gem!” The... Read More
