Throughout the weekend, activities will include open classes, gallery show, student-led school tours, back to school faculty sessions, school athletic contests, arts performance and more…

This is a very special weekend: Not only it is our 50th but on Saturday night, the school is planning to host a large party with dancing on campus open to all alumni, when we will honor Willy and Pam MacMullen for their years of service to Taft.

Taft’s Reunion Weekend is among the school’s strongest traditions and this party will be a great way to connect alumni through shared experiences across generations and celebrate Willy and Pam.


Call the Advancement Office at 800-959-8238 or email Christine Afiouni, Director of Alumni Relations at cafiouni@taftschool.org.
