The Alumnae Association holds several events throughout the year and endeavors to foster lifelong connections between Burke's graduates — and to strengthen their relationship to Burke's. 

In January, we expanded our annual get-together with the alumni association of Town School for Boys and were joined by alumni from Cathedral School for Boys and The Hamlin School as well. A great time was had by all at Mr. Smith's, a lounge owned by a Cathedral alumnus who is currently a Burke's parent. See a few photos here

Our second annual Alumnae Mentorship Network Panel & Reception took place on Tuesday, February 12. Once again, this inspiring evening featuring a terrific panel of a few incredible alumnae speakers and the opportunity for alumnae of all ages to connect, hear advice, and expand their networks. 

At the conclusion of each school year, we invite recent graduates back to campus for our annual Burke's & Beyond, a panel discussion with eighth graders about what lies ahead of them. 

The hallmark event of the Alumnae Association's calendar is the annual Alumnae Luncheon, which is held each spring. Last year we expanded this event into two days of activities, with a seminar on estate planning joining with our usual luncheon on Friday, June 1, and a picnic lunch on Burke's front field for reunion-year alumnae on Saturday, June 2. Both days were such a success that we have already scheduled our 2019 Alumnae Reunion Weekend, and in order to celebrate the opening of our new Campus Center, all weekend events will be open to alumnae of all class years.

Save the dates of Friday, May 31 for our Reunion Luncheon and Saturday, June 1 for our on-campus Celebration and Reunion.

There are also several unique alumnae events each year, and so far in the 2018-19 school year, those have included:

  • An alumnae holiday celebration in December for alumnae and their partners, parents, and children to celebrate the season by decorating cookies and donating toys to the SF Firefighters.
  • A cocktail party with Head of School Michele Williams for alumnae to learn more about Burke's ongoing capital campaign at an alumna's private home.

Alumnae Reunion Weekend 2018
In 2018 our flagship event expanded into a two-day affair!
The Luncheon is such a beautiful event every year, thanks in large part to our incredible Luncheon Chair Aimee Fowler Carlson ’85, so last year, we expanded our celebration across two days and the additional events were met with great enthusiasm. The Estate Planning Seminar with Danielle Broude Yokell ’96 provided food for thought (and mimosas!) for alumnae across generations before our annual Alumnae Luncheon at the Metropolitan Club, and Saturday’s Reunion Picnic brought members of milestone reunion years back to Burke’s with partners, children, and parents for a student-led campus tour and a picnic on the front lawn.

Congratulations to those reunion years — 1943 (75 years); 1948 (70 years); 1953 (celebrating 65 years); 1958 (60 years); 1963 (45 years); 1968 (50 years); 1973 (45 years); 1978/1978e (40 years); 1983 (35 years); 1988 (30 years); 1993 (25 years); 1998 (20 years); and 2003 (15 years) — as well as to our 2018 Distinguished Alumna Mary Shen O’Carroll ’90, who spoke at our Friday event.

For 2019, save the dates of Friday, May 31 for our Reunion Luncheon and Saturday, June 1 for our Campus Center Opening Celebration and Reunion. All weekend events will be open to alumnae of all class years.
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.
