Thank You! Dedicating and Enjoying Our New Spaces
On Wednesday our school community and many guests gathered to celebrate the dedication of The Logan Loft, named for alumni parent donors who inspired hundreds more donors in our community to fund construction, and the Campus Commons, which will honor longtime librarian Ann Van Deusen. The program opened with singing from the 7th grade “Burgundy Bellas” chorus; included remarks from Head of School Jeff Sindler, Board of Trustees President Joanne Petty, and Campaign Chair Charlie Rawls; and concluded with a ceremonial ribbon-cutting.
The true celebration started Tuesday night, however, during the first Arts Festival in the new space. The gallery is full of artwork from Burgundy students, completed throughout the year in classes and groups, focusing on various art media and techniques. Several students also offered musical performances during the event. If you missed it, the art remains on display.
Burgundy once again extends thanks to all the donors to this Campus Renewal project, who have made it possible to transform our Alexandria campus by building The Logan Loft and Campus Commons. Soon, look for an opportunity to suggest an official name for the Campus Commons, recognizing Ann Van Deusen’s legacy at Burgundy.
