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 December 2019, we hosted our second annual Alumnae Holiday Celebration for alumnae and their partners, parents, and children in the new Campus Center. Guests enjoyed hot chocolate and festive music to celebrate the season while decorating cookies and donating toys to the SF Firefighters Toy Drive.

On January 23, we hosted our second expanded Alumni Cocktail Party with the alumni associations of Town School for Boys, Cathedral School for Boys, and The Hamlin School at Harper & Rye in Russian Hill. See a few photos from the celebratory evening here

Due to circumstances far outside of our control, our third annual Alumnae Mentorship Network Panel took place virtually for the first time on June 3. While the format was different than years past, it was still a truly inspiring evening, once again featuring a terrific panel of incredible alumnae speakers. Alumnae of all ages had the opportunity to learn, be inspired, and make connections. We also invited Burke's 7th and 8th graders and current Burke's parents to join us, further showcasing the breadth and depth of knowledge of Burke's alumnae community. Enjoy the entire virtual panel discussion here!

Unfortunately, our annual Alumnae Reunion, scheduled for June 2020, was canceled due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to coming back together next year and will be celebrating milestone reunions for classes ending in '5, '0, '6, and '1 in 2021. 

And just as we do each year, at the conclusion of the 2019-20 school year, we invited six recent graduates and lead alumnae volunteers to help us host our annual Burke's & Beyond, a panel discussion with eighth graders about what lies ahead of them. This event also had to take class online, but it was an engaging conversation with '15 and '16 graduates and a warm welcome for Burke's Class of 2020 into the Alumnae Association!

Alumnae Reunion Weekend 2019
We enjoyed another beautiful luncheon event, thanks in large part to our incredible Luncheon Chair Aimee Fowler Carlson ’85. The Alumnae Luncheon at the Metropolitan Club kicked off with an Estate Planning Seminar with Danielle Broude Yokell ’96 providing food for thought (and mimosas!) for alumnae across generations. Attendees had the pleasure of hearing from our 2019 Distinguished Alumna Ebony Frelix ’91, the EVP and Chief Philanthropy Officer at Salesforce.org. On Saturday, alumnae and their families came back to campus to explore the new state-of-the-art Campus Center, go on student-led campus tours, and attend Faculty Seminars with Ms. Swope, Madame Wagner, Mr. Fleishhacker and Ms. Howland.
