Baccalaureate and Commencement 2018

It was a whirlwind week at Waynflete, but the final events have come to a close and all of a sudden, hallways feel oddly quiet. We had two wonderful ceremonies for our graduating seniors—Baccalaureate and Commencement. Click below to see photos from the events, and stay tuned—we will post speech excerpts, readings, and more!

Senior Slideshow!

A few days before Commencement, Waynflete seniors and their advisors gather for a special celebratory dinner. Each senior is honored with a “Senior Minute”—a short ode to that student and their time at Waynflete. To cap off the evening we play a slideshow featuring photos of the students as they grew up.

Senior Project Presentations

Every spring, seniors leave campus in early May and spend four weeks pursuing a subject of personal interest. This Senior Project month is a fondly remembered time that opens students’ eyes to new interests as they prepare to enter college.

We asked seniors to share their presentations with us so we could share them with you! Click here to view the project presentation schedule. Any project that has a link is available to view. Check back soon—more will be added in the weeks ahead.

Seventh-grade students hosted a Probability Carnival in the gym this week for the rest of the middle school.

After learning about probability in their math classes, seventh-graders applied  their knowledge to create games-of-chance for their peers. It was a wonderful way to start the day before each grade headed out on their class picnics.
