COMING EVENTS:

PALY'S CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION

 Paly's year-long Centennial Celebration will be commencing in March celebrating the campus’ move from Channing Avenue to its present location.  The Alumni Association invites you to join their site at www.palyalumni.net to keep abreast of the activities taking place on campus throughout the year.  As with our site, it is free to join.  You will need to fill out a profile as you did for our site, and you can include as much or little information as you wish.  You're encouraged to join as there is a lot of interesting historical information on the site. Who knows, you may even see your name and picture among the historical relics. : ) 

 I apologize for the inattention to our own class' site during this past year as I was tagged to develop the new Alumni and Friends of Palo Alto High School site with 70 years of classes and over 40,000 on the roster.  Originally I thought I was only going to be building out the site, but I seem to have inherited the job of Site Administrator as well which has kept me busy. Fortunately, things have slowed since its launch in September.

CAMPUS UPDATE

"The high school experience is the mother lode of group memories. It's the imprint and paradigm because that's where our roots are; it was the site of our coming of age and where adult life started, where we found our first role models and maybe our first love."  Dick Henning

Advice is like snow--the softer it falls, the longer it dwells upon, and the deeper it sinks into the mind.                            Robert Taylor Coleridge

 

"We all took different paths....
But every dirt road we’ve walked will lead us back to the friends that know us best.
The ones that will help you up and slap the dust off  without being asked".
~ T. Warner

 

"It is indeed ironic that we spend our school days yearning to graduate and our remaining days waxing nostalgic about our school days." - Isabel Waxman
