We are trying to locate members of the 1956 boys basketball team, 1963 boys track team, and 1972 boys basketball team as we will have framed certificates for each team member or family. Though we will not be able to recognize the 20 years of individual badminton players, we will be honoring the program as a whole and long-time coach, Mrs. Koplitz.
Please contact superintendent Jon Tienhaara with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
