Here is a description of the traditional Webb Dress for commencement.

 
Young Ladies:  For Baccalaureate, graduates may wear a dress other than their white graduation dress.  These dresses should be tasteful and appropriate for the occasion.  This is not a party or social event, and I hope that all young ladies will be respectful of the event in their choice of dress.  The same is true for the white graduation dress.   Additionally, there are times when the weather can be cooler, and a white button-up sweater/shrug may be needed.  Dress shoes or dress sandals are also part of the outfit.  Each female graduate will be given a Webb graduates’ necklace at graduation rehearsal which they are encouraged to wear.

 

Young Gentlemen:  Most males wear the same outfit for both ceremonies - school blazer, white dress shirt, khaki pants, proper shoes, and socks.  In addition, each graduate will be given a special graduates’ tie the day before graduation.  We would like all males to wear this tie for the graduation ceremony and the class picture.

We started collecting pictures from various schools with unique graduation dress [not cap & gown] like Webb.

Senior Survival

May 18-24, 2024

Senior Survival is a Webb tradition that began in 1977.

Along with weekend group trips throughout the year, Winter Freeze and Spring Break adventures test students’ skills. Senior Survival, a weeklong backpacking trip ending the day before graduation, is the final bonding experience for each class that makes lasting memories.

Senior Board

 

This Webb tradition began in 1940. It was established based on rules that began with Sawney. He prohibited the students from damaging the plants and trees, carving or drawing on furniture and buildings, and general vandalism. Boys still wanted to whittle on things, and that is when the idea for a Senior Board came to fruition. Beginning in 1940, they placed a table in the Senior Room, and each graduating senior was permitted to carve out their name. The year of that senior class was carved in the middle. The board was hung in the Big Room at the end of the year. Today's senior boards are not only carved but also painted as well.

Senior Blazer Day

Seniors are responsible for purchasing their blazers and attaching the patch on the left-hand side.  Some blazers will have a pocket, which is the patch's general area.  You may purchase your blazer from any shop that sells blazers or sports coats.  Please try to find a blazer that is close to the color of the fabric swatch you receive.  In the event students lose their patch, replacement patches are $5 each.  We will need the blazers at school the week of Nov 1-3  

 

Nov 6  - We will have a photographer on campus to take the senior group photo in the blazers, and we will take individual pictures of each Senior in their blazer.  

We will have a ceremony when the seniors officially receive their blazers.  Parents will be invited to the ceremony.

Dress for the ceremony and portraits:

  • White Oxford Shirt
  • Khaki Bottoms - [girls may wear pants or skirts, skirts at an appropriate length w/tights; boys please wear pants, no shorts]
  • Black or Navy tights for the girls if you wear a skirt
  • Remember to wear understated shoes [black, brown, navy, tan, or other neutral colors]
  • Gentlemen remember to be clean-shaven

All Seniors will take a Senior Blazer individual and group photo on November 6, 2023
