Burke Sports Resume as Life Begins Return to Normal

Burke athletics resumed this spring for students in grades 8 through 12 after the COVID-19 pandemic caused a pause that lasted more than a year. After receiving approval from the DC State Athletic Association and the Mayor's office, the Potomac Valley Athletic Conference resumed operations in mid-March.

Student Government

Burke's student-elected leadership organizes and runs the weekly all-school assemblies. Student government members also work together on a variety of projects – ranging from organizing fundraisers to collaborating with administrators on school policies.

The Student Government operates under rules outlined in the student-written Burke Student Constitution.
