This morning at a special All School Meeting in the amphitheater, second grader Anna M. announced the name caretaker Ali Shepard ’04 has chosen for Poppy’s foal, born in the barn last week. 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 opportunity to announce the foal’s name was an auction item this year.

Earlier at the meeting, visiting students from Deep Creek Middle School shared a musical presentation with a poem, a song, and a rap celebrating the connection and friendship between the school and Burgundy. Deep Creek is an independent school on the Bahamian island of Eleuthera, also home to the Island School. Every other spring, 7th and 8th graders from Burgundy visit the Island School for a week and in turn host Deep Creek students.
