ANNOUNCEMENTS

We want to stay in touch with you! Over time, it is easy to forget that our class has a very active site here, and it's especially easy to forget about it if you happen to change your primary e-mail address and announcements that are sent out by the site no longer reach you.

We have several of our fellow class members whose e-mail addresses are apparently no longer valid, and we want to stay in touch with them. We are not posting their names here, as this front page is public. Anything you can do to help us maintain communication will be greatly appreciated.

Also, review our "Missing Classmates" list to help us re-connect with them. Any bit of information towards that end will be very helpful. Several of us have worked on this list over the years and continue to do so today.

We invite you to use the "Contact Us" tab in the left column here on the front page if you're having any difficulty with log-ins. If you have forgotten your password, there is a "Forgot Password" link just below the log-in button at the upper right which allows you to reset your password. If that doesn't work, reach out to us to assist you.

Thanks again to all of you who stay in touch, who send birthday greetings to our fellow class members, and to those who keep us informed of life changes for yourself or others. You serve a vital role in keeping this site dynamic and valuable to our great AHHS Class of 63!

A Brief History: The first Alamo Heights High School was opened in 1909. It was a two-room frame building in front of the site of the present Cambridge Elementary School building. In 1912, a new school on the same location contained eight rooms and an auditorium. In 1922, the first high school building was finished and was under supervision of the County Superintendent of Schools. The first graduating class from the high school, in May of 1925, had sixteen graduates. In 1928, the elementary and junior schools were built on the same site. In 1937, a 21-acre tract of land at Broadway and E. Castano was purchased; a new high school would be erected on that land. Soon, the football stadium and tennis courts were on the new grounds. Plans were started before 1941, but they were laid aside. Preliminary drawings of the school began in 1942; many meetings and inspection trips to other schools followed. On April 4, 1948, the bond issue passed by a vote of 3 to 1. Teachers submitted plans for their rooms and the facilities that they would need. A study of the educational needs of the community was made. Construction of the gymnasium began in January of 1949; work on the school started in June of 1949. The homemaking cottage was started in September. The school building was completed and opened for public use in September of 1950. During the late winter of 1956, construction was started on the north wing of the main building, vocal, music and speech rooms, and the auxiliary gymnasium. These facilities were ready for use at the beginning of the next school year. Extensive remodeling of the central wing to increase and improve the science and foreign language laboratories, an addition to the library, and the construction of the south wing were started during the summer of 1960 and were completed early in the spring of 1961. The demonstration-lecture room of the cottage was added during the summer of 1963. An extension to the north wing, additional dressing facilities for physical education, and stadium improvements were completed during the 1964-65 school year. New lights were placed on the football field in 1968, and the natatorium and air conditioning of all classroom buildings were completed during the 1969-70 school year. In 1989, 1998, 2000, 2005 and 2010 Alamo Heights patrons approved bond elections to provide improvements and additions to the high school and all district buildings.
