Letter to Seniors/Parents/Friends of Class of 2021

March 26, 2021

Dear Seniors, Parents, and Friends of the Class of 2021,

We have received the most recent update from the Marriott Syracuse Downtown. Unfortunately, the guidelines that will take effect in mid-April will still not allow for us to gather in large enough groups to accommodate our seniors in the time frame allotted. Therefore, we have decided to go forward with our “Senior Ball Under the Stars” on Friday, June 4, 2021 (with a rain date of Saturday, June 5, 2021). Our hope is that by then we can gather more of our seniors together at the same time. Plans are already underway to make this a memorable and special night for our seniors.  Details will follow soon!

Thank you to all of the parents who helped make the Shamrock Shake event possible! The seniors enjoyed their shakes and cookies.  We look forward to another event before our high school senior events kick off. The parents have planned a “Hop Into Spring with your Peeps” giveaway on Friday, April 9th at all dismissals again. Remote students, please arrive at 2:30 for your treats. (see flyer below)

Class of 2021 SlideAlso, thank you to Mr. Gambino from Action Sports Photography for offering a Senior Ball fundraiser this year with his senior yard sign sale!  Last year, we were able to purchase these signs for our seniors due to the absence of traditional senior events. This year, you will have the opportunity to buy a sign, support a local business, and help the senior class! We appreciate Mr. Gambino’s offer to give back a portion of his sales this year for the Senior Ball. Visit HERE  for more information and to place your order by APRIL 19!

Finally, there are a lot of things happening behind the scenes. Our Senior Class officers are hard at work recognizing our graduates on the Instagram page. Seniors can have their future plans shared by filling out the form HERE!  Please be sure that all docs are able to be viewed by anyone with the link. Also, if seniors would like to have their name and postgraduate plans displayed on the WGHS Marquee, please complete this Google FormThese forms are only accessible with a WG email.  

In addition, we have set up a private group on Facebook for SENIORS ONLY. This is to share pictures of themselves throughout their schooling for the senior video.  Search “West Genesee Class of 2021 Photo Share (Students Only)” and request to join. This is run by the class officers and senior advisors. If seniors do not have Facebook, please send pictures via email to rdecesare@westgensee.org.  

Graduation is right around the corner! While we are still confirming our location, the date will remain Saturday, June 19, 2021 (with a rain date of Sunday, June 20, 2021 in the event of an outdoor venue). We will communicate event details as graduation guidelines become available. 

Sincerely,

Mr. Wayne Ackles
