GRADUATION CORDS

It was great to see so many seniors during cap and gown pick-up on May 7. Please double check that you received the correct cords in your bag.
Contact Jenny Condell at jenny.condell@weldre4.org with any discrepancies.

● Cum Laude (Maroon Cord): Graduating with Honor Scholars define Cum Laude as “with honor.” Honoring students with a 3.5 -3.79 GPA as Cum Laude.
● Magna Cum Laude (Gold Cord): Graduating with Great Honor. Scholars define Magna Cum Laude meaning “with high honor.” Honoring students with a 3.8 – 4.09 GPA as Magna Cum Laude.
● Summa Cum Laude (Maroon and Gold Cords): Graduating with Highest Honor. Scholars define Summa Cum Laude as “with highest honor.” Honoring students with a 4.1+ GPA as Summa Cum Laude.
● National Honor Society (Blue/Gold): Honoring members of National Honor Society.

Thank you for patience and understanding during these unprecedented times. We will get through this together...we are Windsor Strong!

Graduation Information





Dear Families of Windsor High School’s Class of 2020:

We have more information to share with you today about how graduation will proceed for our seniors. In May, we will conduct a mobile procession for the senior class that will involve picking up caps and gowns, honor cords, medallions, and diploma covers as well as taking a professional graduation photo with the Wizard statue at the front of our building. Our high school staff will be present at the procession to share their well-wishes and cheer our seniors on from a safe distance. We will share the date and logistics of the procession once the plan has been approved by the Weld County Department of Public Health and Environment.

Additionally, we are proceeding with a formal virtual graduation on May 24th to include speeches, photos of every senior, and reading the name of every graduate. Diplomas and a commemorative program keepsake will be mailed to students following the event. 

We had hoped to hold a graduation reception in the summer to honor the Class of 2020 and their families. However, during a conference call last week Governor Polis told superintendents across the state to expect large gatherings, like traditional graduations, not to be permitted until sometime later this fall. We will look for creative options to publicly honor the Class of 2020 when large gatherings are once again safe.

Over the past few weeks, we have heard from many of you. It’s clear that our seniors are loved and supported. The resounding desire by everyone to ensure that we celebrate this milestone in their lives was evident from the many ideas that you shared with us. Thank you! We will also be mailing out National Honor Society and Academic Lettering awards, along with a video message recognizing students. 

While it won’t be traditional or close to perfect, I can promise you that the Class of 2020 graduation ceremony will be as unique and special as each of our graduates. A graduation to remember! Thank you for your continued support. We are...Windsor Strong.
