Each year, families of the senior class have an opportunity to make a gift to Waynflete in celebration of their child’s journey to graduation.
Parents, grandparents, and extended family members find that the Senior Gift is a wonderful way to show gratitude for the lifelong gift of a Waynflete education.
The Senior Gift encourages new and increased support of the School through our Waynflete Fund. When you give to the Waynflete Fund, you are strengthening educational programs, the curriculum, and extracurricular activities. You are investing directly in the Waynflete experience and honoring the great work of exceptional teachers.
Our hope is that each senior family will make a gift before June 30.
A message from our 2022 Senior Gift Co-Chairs Gillian Schair ’90 and Seth Rigoletti, P ’19, ’22
When we were asked to chair the Senior Gift Committee for the Class of 2022, it brought up a mix of gratitude and nostalgia. Gratitude for a community that places a high value on the student-teacher relationship and nostalgia for the many stages we’ve experienced as parents, alumni, and faculty. Eli began his career as a Waynflete student 13 years ago, but our journey with the school goes all the way back to 1979, when Gillian was a first-grader.
Waynflete celebrates and teaches to the unique value in every individual. This is the secret behind the school’s success. It’s why we decided to send both our kids here, and why Seth enjoyed teaching here for so many years. The staff and teachers at Waynflete look for the light in each student. We experienced this with our oldest child, Milo, and we’ve seen it with Eli. This is a school that encourages teachers to see students for who they are, and to share with them a path to learning that includes both joy and rigor.
We look forward to leading this important effort, and to celebrating our common connections as senior class families together.
