2021 Commencement Announcement

Dear Alumni, Parents, and Friends,


On behalf of Olney Friends School, we would like to invite you to virtually attend the 183rd Commencement Exercises at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, June 5, 2021. This is a wonderful time to reunite with alumni and friends as we celebrate the Class of 2021. Due to the ongoing global pandemic, Olney Friends School will be holding all commencement and alumni activities virtually through various platforms such as Zoom, Facebook, and YouTube. Only students and faculty will be permitted on campus. Please note that commencement activities and details are subject to change.

All Alumni are invited to the Alumni Association's Annual Meeting that will be held virtually at 7:30 PM Friday, June 4 by video conference. After the traditional roll call, the 50-Year Class of 1971 will welcome the Class of 2021 into the Association.

In the hopes of keeping as many traditions as possible, the Silent Auction will take place online this year. We welcome donations for this charitable-giving opportunity!
To donate a gift to the Auction, contact Vicki at 740-425-3655 or vicki@olneyfriends.org. Other traditional events being planned include a bonfire and an “Olney Eats” cooking tutorial (in place of supper).

Class Reunions will also be happening virtually in the two weeks following commencement. Alumni Relations faculty have scheduled Zoom meetings for class years ending in 1 and 6. For information on connecting to your virtual reunion, check your email inbox, contact alumni@olneyfriends.org, or phone Anne Marie (ext 210) or Shea (ext 253).

In the hopes of keeping as many traditions as possible, the Silent Auction will take place online this year. Bidding opens at 4:00 PM EDT Friday, June 4, at https://olneyfriendsschool.betterworld.org/auctions/commencement.

Details and links for participating in these virtual events will be sent as needed and in a timely fashion. We look forward to seeing you (virtually) this year!
