Alumnae Weekend & Reunions
Alumnae Weekend is a time to return to campus to celebrate Westridge ties and lifelong friendships with classmates and fellow alumnae.
It includes classes and campus tours for alumnae, a Friday night on-campus reception for alumnae and guests, faculty, and staff, and a dedicated program and award ceremony on Saturday.
The 50th reunion class is invited to attend a mix of Lower, Middle and Upper School classes on Friday morning, and have tea with their 4th grade pen pals in the afternoon.
Saturday morning begins with coffee and conversation, followed by an alumna speaker in the historic Braun Music Center, class photos for milestone reunion years and the Alumnae Luncheon honoring our Mary Lowther Ranney Distinguished Alumna Award recipient and Distinguished Young Alumna Award recipient. A campus tour is available following the luncheon. The luncheon is free for the 50th reunion class and above, and the program includes student speakers and a performance by the Westridge Madrigals.
Members of the Madeline Society, who have chosen to include Westridge in their will or estate plans, are invited to join our Head of School for coffee and conversation, along with alumnae celebrating 70+ years since graduating. The weekend typically coincides with the Westridge spring musical, giving alumnae the opportunity to attend a top-notch performance with Upper School students onstage and behind the scenes in the Performing Arts Center.
Class reunions are celebrated at Alumnae Weekend each year starting at the five-year mark, on up through 75 years and sometimes more! Class representatives or reunion organizers work with the Alumnae Office for a class gathering that often takes place at a home or local restaurant.

Alumnae Weekend: March 12-13, 2021
Due to COVID-19 restrictions potentially increasing in the month(s) to come, Alumnae Weekend 2021 will be celebrated online on March 12 and 13. However, because there is no expiration date on your reunion year, in person class reunions and gatherings will be postponed until summer or fall. The ability for alumnae from around the world to gather is much greater online than in person, so save the dates for March 12-13 online celebrations and activities, including recognition for the following:
- Mary Lowther Ranney Distinguished Alumna Award
- Distinguished Young Alumna Award
- Elizabeth Edmundson Herrick Bowl (honoring the class with the highest percentage of participation in giving to the Westridge Annual Fund)
- Nancy H. Owen Trophy (awarded to the class making the largest dollar contribution to the Westridge Annual Fund)
- Reunion classes ending in 1 and 6
- Ceramics teacher Juanita Jimenez, retiring in June 2021 after 50 remarkable years at Westridge
