Thank You, Volunteers!
It’s National Volunteer Week! We want to give a hearty thank you to all our many volunteers!
At each admission open house I try to be honest with parents looking at Burgundy about who we are, and one of the things I say is, “We are not a ‘drop ’em off at JK and pick ’em up at 8th grade graduation’ kind of place.”
At Burgundy it’s a shared journey, one to which parents, guardians, and families contribute substantially and help facilitate with their various kinds of volunteering: from classroom and library volunteering to leading garden days or working at Cove opening and closing, from hosting potlucks to bringing family culture (and food) to school curricula to organizing (and sometimes making) refreshments for special events, to staffing the fall fair and auction, and chairing annual giving, from chaperoning Cove trips to helping us design and bid and build the new Logan Loft, parent volunteers have been involved in almost everything at Burgundy over the years! The simple truth is that we would not be the school that we are without our parents and guardians, and parent volunteering is in our DNA, from the very founding of the school and building of the original campus by parents who’d purchased the old dairy farm.
To all of our volunteers, including those who are working parents whose volunteering is after-hours, via email and phone calls, and sometimes less visible — we love you!
