This is the last assembly of the 2019-2020 school year. We hope the first assembly of the next school year will be IN Haertter Hall, but stay tuned. We’ll keep everyone updated over the summer—plans will incorporate not only everything we all know and love about Burroughs, but also every safety measure available to us.
We look forward to seeing everyone on May 31 as we support the Class of 2020 when they receive their diplomas. Look for an email with full details soon. Yearbooks, musical instruments and items from lockers are available for pickup today and early next week.
*Field Day: Today is virtual Field Day. The Friday Kahoot! schedule for class-level games is as follows: juniors, 11:15; 7th and 8th graders, noon; sophomores, 1 pm; freshmen, 3 pm; and between 1 and 3 for seniors. Everyone will gather at 4 pm for a final, school-wide Kahoot! featuring teacher trivia. Look for an email from Ms. Grantham with links to class games. The link to the school-wide game will be posted on the school government Canvas page.
*Supporting Frontline Workers: Here is the link to the GoFundMe page for Make the Day Brighter For Frontline Fighters.
This year’s yearbook theme was new beginnings and moving into the future. The Class of 2020 dedicated their yearbook to Susie Wilson (who received her dedication on stage in December before she retired), with remarks delivered by Dylan Fox and Maya Kaslow. Recognitions were also given to Maria Cohen (Spanish), chosen by the 11th and 12th grades, with remarks given by Kendall Allen ’21; Maggie Doyle Ervin (English), chosen by the 9th and 10th grades, with remarks given by Lucy Von Rohr ’23; and Julie Harris (Math/former 7th and 8th grade principal/assistant head of school), chosen by the 7th and 8th graders, who received her yearbook dedication on stage in March before she headed to her new role at The Biome School. Dalton Harrold ’25 delivered remarks, with a final goodbye from Libby Hizar ’20. More goodbyes were given to departing faculty members Susie Lim (Science), by Simeon Williams ’21; Chris Lubniewksi (Science, ITE), by Koan Morris ’21 and Andrew Wang ’21; Nicole Whiteford (Math/Computer Science), by Nora Woodruff ’24; and Linda Mercer (Library), by Adina Cazacu-De Luca ’20. The Governor staff also recognized yearbook faculty sponsors Mike Gesiakowski (Fine Arts) and Sorsha Maness (Library).
