The Week @ Webb - Theme Week Edition

Scott Nichols
The Week @ Webb is a unique look into the activities both on and off Webb's campus. This past week was our annual class spirit event called Theme Week. Each grade level dresses up in the announced theme for four days to gain points for their respective class. At the end of the week, each of the classes performs a skit that will also count towards their overall point total. It's a hilarious week for students and faculty alike, so I hope you enjoy some of the standout costumes and images I collected in this gallery.

  • Class of 2019

    Members of the Class of 2019 faced tremendous competition this year as they applied to colleges and universities across the country and around the world. While each felt the stress of the selective admission process, our seniors proved once again that good character coupled with a dedication to your studies really pays off.
     
    In 2019 we saw 100 percent of the graduating class admitted to a selective four-year college or university—90 percent will attend a college ranked in the top 10 percent in the nation. On average each of our students applied to eight colleges and was admitted to four or more of them.
     
    We congratulate members of the Class of 2019 for their amazing college choices and wish them well on the adventures ahead!
