ANNOUNCEMENTS

TICKET SALES FOR THE REUNION DINNER-DANCE WILL CLOSE AT MIDNIGHT ON FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20TH...

Suddenly,
          a song brings it all back.
The band at the beach.
The gold on the radio.
Even the melody, minus the words,
     on the Muzak.
Just familiar enough
     to wake your memories
     and walk you back to the place,
          and the face,
     and the night it became your song.

Which song does it for you?  You needn't name names (unless you want to), but at least share the memory here: https://tinyurl.com/y47wb658.  The log in is the date of our dinner/dance 10/5/2019 and the Event Code (case sensitive) is: Forestview.

TWO EVENTS ARE FULL

Due to space limitations, we've had to close further reservations for the Friday night pizza party at Georgio's and the Saturday morning tour of FVHS.  We're sorry, but at the same time pleased, at the great response to these events.  We will create a waiting list (instructions below) should we have any cancellations and just like the initial sales, they will be first come, first served.

Pizza Party:

Should you wish to be added to this list, please email me at: mayfare15@aol.com.  On the subject line enter: Pizza, put in the number of people and the first and last name of each guest; no money will be collected until we have a reserved spot for you. Should space open we will contact you.

School Tour:

Should you wish to be added to this list, please email me at: mayfare15@aol.com.  On the subject line enter: School, put in the number of people and the first and last name of each guest; no money is charged for this event.  Should space open we will contact you.

We have lots of space left for the main event but really encourage you to purchase your tickets as soon as you can.  So many decisions depend on the number of attendees from how many classmates per table to how many tables and the layout, to decorations (based on how many tables, you seeing a theme here?), to number of wait staff, etc.  The earlier you buy your tickets, the less stress on your organizers (remember, we're classmates too, insane classmates, but still...).  

So remember our motto, "Take Pity on Your Committee".

50th Reunion Reservations are open!

Please see the three tabs to the left: FVHS Class of "69 50th Reunion, Hotel Reservation Link for 50th and Help a Classmate to Attend.  In those three tabs you will find all the information you need to register, make reservations and buy tickets for our big 50th reunion.  A couple of the events are space-limited and we hate for anyone to miss out so buy your tickets or make your reservations as early as possible.

And we ask that you share this far and wide; we need to find more of our classmates! 

  

The History of Forest View High School 

When the first high school building was built in 1922 for Arlington Heights to accommodate its' 101 high school kids, thoughts did not comprehend the immense future growth the town would have. By the late 1950s, the high school-aged population had grown to well over 2000 students. Plans were soon made to build a new high school to relieve the pressure on the many-times expanded Arlington High School. In 1962 Forest View High School was created.  Forest View High School served the community for nearly 25 years. It was in the mid 1980s that talks of now-decreasing enrollment led to the closure of Forest View High School in 1986. Kids who attended Forest View High School in 1986 were given the choice of attending Elk Grove, Prospect, or Rolling Meadows high schools.  

 
The Forest View High School building was put to excellent use and today is home to five entities: 
    1.  Offices for District 214,
    2.  Community Education offices,
    3.  Newcomer H.S. (for H.S. students new to America),
    4.  Vangard H.S. (Spec.Needs not identified as Special Ed),
    5.  Forest View Alternative School (Special Ed students).
