As visitors to campus may have noticed, accessing the library and French classroom still requires going around the back of the building. The work has taken longer than expected, and with the recent wet weather the work and the temporary access will take another week at least. The contractors are creating trench drains and spreading the sub-base material ahead of installation of asphalt pavers in the area. We apologize for any inconvenience. We're happy to share that we've achieved a big... Read More

The first Box Top collection of the year is coming soon! Please bring in any and all Box Tops by Friday, Oct. 27. No need to trim or use collection sheets. There are Box Top containers in every classroom, the Main Office, and the Middle School atrium.

A 7th grader checking out a prosthetic arm Evan Kuester '04 designed. Learning how to learn. At a glance, that expression can sound either interesting or like cliched 'edu-speak.'

As the recent Education Week article, "Learning How to Learn Could be a Student's Most Valuable Skill," attests, becoming a good learner can be more important than native intelligence or excellence in test-taking. Information literacy, as in discerning useful information, understanding... Read More

Our students enjoyed Songpyeon steamed rice cakes and Korean popcorn, played a Korean hacky sack game called Jae Gi-Cha-Gi, learned or practiced using chopsticks, and found their names written in Korean script.

  Chickpea the rooster recently joined Burgundy's barnyard family. After being discovered on the streets of Old Town Alexandria as a chick, Chickpea was rescued by the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria and had been living at a staff member's house for several months. Once he arrived at Burgundy, Chickpea was in a neighboring but separate pen in the barnyard at first before being moved in with our hens. Watch and listen to Chickpea introduce himself!
