Frequently Asked Questions

There are many ways to contribute to Reunion, whether you live in St. Louis or elsewhere! Here are a few ideas:

  • Promote Reunion among your classmates
  • Volunteer to come to school prior to May 6 and help curate the photo archives for your era
  • Underwrite an element of Reunion Weekend (Bubble Bus, Food, Teacher Tickets, etc.) by clicking the "Register Now!" above and then "Support Reunion" in the Menu for a complete list of options. This can be done as an individual, business, or by the "Class of..."

If you have other ideas, please contact Director of Alumni Relations Laura Lotz '95 at 314.415.1271 or laura.lotz@whitfieldschool.org.

The Family Friendly picnic on Saturday is free. Food will be available for purchase from food trucks on site, or you may bring your own picnic. We do kindly ask that you register so that we may provide the best possible experience for our attendees.

The Reunion Celebration for All Alumni (21+) on Saturday evening is $20 per person for tickets purchased prior to May 13. Tickets will be $30 at the door. 

The cost to attend the Individual Class Gatherings on Friday evening, if any, will be communicated separately by your Class Captain(s).

Yes, there are opportunities to support Reunion and the Alumni Program in general, that include underwriting aspects of Reunion Weekend. Individuals, businesses, or entire classes may contribute to underwriting an item or event. Whitfield hopes to raise $20,000 to help underwrite Reunion Weekend so we may continue to keep ticket prices low! Contribute through the "Support Reunion Weekend" links above!

Great question! While we will miss you at Reunion Weekend, there is another opportunity to celebrate the Whitfield community! Our Green & White Gala will be held at the Four Seasons St. Louis this year. The Gala will honor the legacies of retiring Head of School John Delautre and long-time faculty member Sheila McCarthy for their years of service and tremendous contributions to the Whitfield community. This is a wonderful opportunity to get a group of fellow alumni and friends together to celebrate! For more information, please click here.

If your class does not have Class Captains listed (above), this means that we do not yet have volunteers from your class to help in this capacity. If you are interested in helping or know of a classmate who might be interested, please contact Director of Alumni Relations Laura Lotz '95 at 314.415.1271 or laura.lotz@whitfieldschool.org. We would love your help!

I am so glad you asked! There are three main roles of a Class Captain:

  • Promote upcoming events and opportunities among your classmates. This can be done via social media, text, email, etc.--whatever works for you and your classmates!
  • Help the school collect updated contact information for classmates. Do you know someone moved? Did someone share that they don't receive the alumni newsletter? Let us know so that we can connect alumni to the school. 
  • Share suggestions with us about how we can continue to build the alumni program!

All events will be held on Whitfield's campus EXCEPT for Friday night's Individual Class Gatherings. Specific locations for the events are listed under the details above. For those who have not been back to campus in a while, we will share a map with you as we near the events.

Our goal is for each class to have 2-3 Class Captains. Some classes have had more people interested in this leadership role than others. If there is one person listed, it means that we currently have one volunteer from your class to help in this capacity. If you are interested in helping or know of a classmate who might be interested, please contact Director of Alumni Relations Laura Lotz '95 at 314.415.1271 or laura.lotz@whitfieldschool.org. We would love your help!
