Opening Assembly 2022

It was a glorious sunny morning filled with songs and cheers as Burke’s officially welcomed the community back to campus.
The entire community gathered last week for the annual Opening Assembly. Our Lower and Upper School students sang "Sansa Kroma" to the new kindergarteners; a beloved song in our community that tells the story of a baby eagle being welcomed into a village. Our oldest eighth-grader and youngest first-grader rang in the new year for the community and Upper School Music Teacher Ms. Allen led students in a rousing rendition of “This Joy” by the Resistance Revival Chorus. 
The assembly concluded with the Class of 2023 walking through a symbolic tunnel of “Wisdom Keepers” created by members of our faculty and staff. 
Welcome to the Class of 2031 and all of our new students and a special cheer for the Class of 2023! 
We are ready for a great year of educating, encouraging, and empowering our incredible students.
Burke's mission is to educate, encourage and empower girls. Our school combines academic excellence with an appreciation for childhood so that students thrive as learners, develop a strong sense of self, contribute to community, and fulfill their potential, now and throughout life.
