The Final Roar 

Senior Drive-Thru & PTSA Reception

Tuesday, May 14, 2024

 Begins at Summerfield Entrance & ends at the East Cafeteria

 Drive-Thru: 5:30 pm - 6:00 pm            PTSA Reception: 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


Drive Thru

  • It begins at 5:30 PM at the Summerfield West entrance to the main campus. The Drive Thru route can be seen in the link below and it is only taking place on the WPHS Main Campus.
  • Students are encouraged to wear their cap-n-gown and sit in the front passenger seat of their vehicle. Please have someone else drive who can focus on the road, drive under 5 MPH, and stay an appropriate distance from the vehicle directly ahead.  We want our seniors to be able to enjoy the experience. 
  • We encourage you to decorate your vehicle.
  • Staff, family members, feeder elementary and middle school teachers, and other students are all encouraged to line up on both sides of the route and cheer for our graduates.
  • All spectators should plan to arrive by 5:15 PM.  We will also be closing off the Berwick Street, Green Street, Lindale Street (Baldwin Park), and Woodcrest/Strathaven entrances once the Drive Thru begins.  See the spectator parking areas designated on the map. 
  • Spectators should also plan to stay until 6:00 PM to help cheer for all of our graduates.  Spectator vehicles will not be able to leave the designated parking areas once the Drive Thru begins. 
  • Seniors– if you are participating, please do not arrive before 5:30 PM.  This is not like a parade regarding pre-setup – meaning that we will not be lining all Senior cars up before it begins.  We want to try and not clog the neighboring streets before 5:30 PM.  Some may want to plan to arrive closer to 5:40 or 5:50. We don’t want to separate friends who want to participate together, but here is a suggested alpha schedule in an attempt to be good neighbors and not clog up the streets around our campus.  The suggested alpha schedule is A-H at 5:30 PM, I-R at 5:40, and S-Z 5:50 PM.  Thank you for not arriving before 5:30 PM.  Conversely, for those few who plan to walk or ride a bike, we really would like you to be at the beginning of the Drive Thru, and not mixed in with all of the vehicles, so please arrive a few minutes before 5:30 PM.
  • All students, along with others in the vehicle, should be wearing a seat belt.  Flatbeds, similar to floats in a parade, and multiple students sitting in the back of a pick-up truck will not be allowed to participate in the Senior Drive Thru.  Students, and other passengers in the vehicle, must stay inside their vehicles at all times during the Drive Thru.
  • Seniors will exit the campus at the Woodcrest/Strathaven gate after their Drive Thru and then proceed back to the Summerfield entrance where we will direct them to park for the PTSA Reception.  We will start parking cars in B lot, then C lot and A lot if necessary. to an external site.


Senior Reception – sponsored by PTSA

  • PTSA welcomes all seniors and their families to join us for Winter Park High School's Final Roar event! PTSA is excited to host a reception in the cafeteria and courtyard from 6:00 to 7:30 PM, following the Sr. Drive Thru. We look forward to celebrating our seniors as they walk through the wildcat and are greeted by Willie! There will be yummy treats, a DJ, and photo opportunities to capture some of the last memories made at WPHS.  Parents and friends are welcome to join in on the fun and congratulate our seniors as they take their Final Roar!
  • PTSA donation bins will be available so if you’ve got any Winter Park spirit wear,    homecoming or prom dresses or other clothing donations, please bring them and  drop them in the bin for another WPHS student to enjoy!


We look forward to seeing everyone on May 14th!  Thank you for your support and GO WILDCATS!
