As we enter the last week of April, only a few more weeks remain in your Stevenson career! While the last year has been unusual to say the least, we hope to provide you with a send-off that includes many of our traditional events, albeit with some necessary safety modifications. There will be lots more detail coming soon, so keep checking your email. Our celebration of your senior class begins this week with events tomorrow, April 28, and Friday, April 30.
Nathan Krissoff ’99 Award
On Wednesday (tomorrow), Seniors enrolled in campus instruction can attend our first live assembly of the year, as we present the Nathan Krissoff ’99 Award during a Seniors-only assembly in Wandke Amphitheater at 10:00 a.m. PST. We will record the assembly for those unable to attend, and for the rest of the community, and post it to Pirate Pages.
Senior Luncheon at Sunset
Each year, the Pirate Parent Club hosts a luncheon for the senior class, attended by all seniors and a selection of teachers, identified by you and your peers, who have most influenced the experience of the class. We are delighted to be able to honor this tradition with an in-person event on Friday, adapted so that those in distant time zones can still participate. Please plan on attending the Class of 2021 for a dinner on campus starting at 6:45 p.m. PST. You have received a Paperless Post invitation for this event with all the details.
We are planning many of the usual events for graduation week, and anticipate being able to hold these events in person on campus. With current COVID-19 restrictions limiting the capacity for gatherings, we can welcome no more than 300 people for any one event. This is significantly fewer than we usually host for graduation, so unfortunately we have to cap the number of guests per family. We are sending a survey to your families this week to confirm your in-person or remote attendance and the number of guest invitations they need (which will be capped at two guests per family, with potential exemptions for further invitations in exceptional circumstances, depending on numbers). We will send out more details as we firm up plans for graduation week, but graduation will be live-streamed for students and families unable to attend.
It has been wonderful seeing so many of you back on campus, and I’m sorry that we won’t be able to have the whole class physically together as we celebrate the class of 2021, but we will do our very best to include you regardless of where you are in the world as we recognize both your class’s extraordinary achievements and your remarkable resilience!
