A tremendous thank you to the parents and family members who attended Parents Weekend 2018. The faculty and staff enjoyed having you on campus for classroom visits, athletic events, information sessions and more. More than 350 parents came for the weekend activities, representing eight countries including Canada, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, Thailand and the United Kingdom, as well as nine states (Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Oregon and Utah).
Parents Weekend highlights include the Thursday night reception at Elvira's restaurant, hosted by the Affiliates of Webb. Friday day included breakfast and lunch in Price Dining Hall, classroom visits and information sessions on financial aid and the spring/summer travel opportunities. On Friday evening, parents and faculty gathered for the annual Affiliates Benefit on the lower field. This fun-filled casual evening included delicious food and drinks from local restaurants, silent and live auctions, and a live band. Saturday morning started with a breakfast by advisory group and finished with panels for freshmen/sophomore parents and junior/senior parents.
Looking ahead...Parents Weekend 2019 is scheduled for October 4-5, 2019. Save the Date!
Amara Berry ’12 truly embodies what it means to think boldly, mindfully and creatively. In October 2017, she was invited to give a Tedx Talk in Providence, Rhode Island, where she spoke on the legacy of her grandparents, how their work inspired her and the incredible work she is doing with our youth through The Sparkle Program.
We are pleased and excited to announce the appointment of Jennifer Liu as Webb’s Director of Parent Relations and Special Events effective November 1. In this position, Liu will oversee our parent relations program, which serves more than 750 current parents worldwide and an active volunteer network through our Affiliates parent organization.
An opportunity to pick the brain of award-winning author John Scalzi '87, is not one you want to miss. Discussing topics ranging from what exactly defines a burrito to what projects he currently has in production, there's never a dull moment with Scalzi.
For Webb sports fans who can’t attend a game, or if you’d like to follow along with the live stats and scores from our athletic contests, most of our home games will be covered live with video and play-by-play at The NFHS Network.
To learn more about working in independent schools and meet with school representatives about open positions, please join Webb and 30 other participants on Saturday, February 23 from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm at Harvard-Westlake School in Studio City.
