The Windward School Grade 8 Graduation will take place on Sunday, June 12, 2022 at 2 p.m. on Garry Field. The joint ceremony for all Manhattan and Westchester eighth-grade students will be located at 40 West Red Oak Lane, White Plains, NY 10604. A reception will be held in the courtyard following the ceremony.

Arrival Time
We suggest that graduates and their families plan to arrive by 1:15 p.m. This allows for time to take a group photo of all the graduates and ready the students for the exciting afternoon that awaits them.

Dress for the students is as follows: dress slacks, dress shirt, tie, jacket, festive dresses, skirts, dress shoes, low heels, wedges, or flats. Please keep in mind that students will be processing and walking on the field during the ceremony.

There is no limit on the number of guests per graduating student.

Inclement Weather
In the event of inclement weather, graduation will be held indoors with limited seating in the gymnasium. Additional seating will be provided in the building for live stream viewing.

Photography & Videography
Professional photographers and videographers will be on site to capture the ceremony. All graduating students will take a class photo before the ceremony begins, so please arrive promptly. As students depart the stage after receiving their diplomas, a photographer will take portrait photos of each graduate with their diploma before the students return to their seat. Windward will share the images and recordings following the event.
