Calling all CHS 65, family and friends -- Wow! Have we got news for you about the September 13, 2017 -- CHS 65 Welcomes the 70’s. Please RSVP Joanna Uchida Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her 253-631-0360.
CHS 65 Welcomes the 70’s – We’re 70 and want to celebrate it and invite as many classmates, family and friends as possible. Please help us contact and encourage fellow classmates, family and friends to attend a special night you won’t want to miss. What’s so special? Honoring & helping others.
Honors the Past – We invited 2 teachers (Messrs. Payseno & Phelan) who will be honored as representing our CHS 65 teachers/administrators. Instead of class instruction, they will share a few words with us. We will take a group picture and create a CHS65 Welcomes the 70's memory gift. The more the merrier as it will be a very special occasion.
We have invited members from Ken Visintin’s family (brother Ray & 96 yr. old dad) to attend our gathering. CHS 65 will present a $200 check to the CHSAA (Cleveland High School Alumni Association) of which a portion will go to the Cleveland High Memorial Forest in honor of Ken.
Cleveland High Memorial Forest – ‘A feeling of pride’: Cleveland High School war memorial — a forest in Issaquah — is rededicated. click here for the Seattle Times article.

Helps the Future – We invite all CHS 65 classmates, family & friends to pledge/donate any amount ($1, $5, $25, $100 or whatever you can) for future CHS students. You can honor someone & designate it for anything – eg. CHS Forest, Band Uniforms, Scholarships, etc. Also, feel free to contact CHSAA directly. We’ll have donation forms at the September 13th event for you to make a pledge or donate that night. A CHSAA rep will be there to explain it and answer any questions you may have. Our goal is to raise $1000 or more at the September 13th Eagle Gathering. As you know CHS is one of the poorer school areas in Seattle. CHS was designated a STEM school (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math) a few years ago. CHS'sr graduation rate went from 50% to 89% “Back from the brink: Cleveland High says the secret is STEM”. click here for the complete article.
