July 16th - July 17th, 2020

Commencement and the Senior Dinner are treasured traditions for Gow graduates and their families. With so much uncertainty these past few months, we are thrilled to be able to come together to celebrate the accomplishments of the Class of 2020! Both the Senior Dinner (Thursday, July 16) and Commencement (Friday, July 17) will be held under a tent on Gow’s campus. Following guidelines issued by the State of New York, attendance at the Senior Dinner and Commencement will be limited to 150 people. For families able to attend Senior Dinner and Commencement, we are asking that each student bring up to four guests.  We realize that some graduates will be unable to travel to campus and look forward to including them virtually.

The celebration of the Class of 2020 will begin with a casual Thursday evening picnic on campus, followed by the Cresting Ceremony. Commencement will begin Friday morning at 10:00 a.m. and will include speeches by our graduates, which will be delivered in person or by video. We are looking forward to welcoming everyone to campus and are excited to celebrate the many accomplishments of our seniors!
