In memoriam...

This is the unofficial website for Boston Latin School's Class of 1980, unique in the fact that we're not one of the other classes. While it is unsanctioned by the School, the Alumnae Association, the class officers, or even the class members, the Alumnae Association's webpage for our class will probably point to this webpage as well as information on future reunions.

BLS emblem The Boston Latin School (Schola Latina Bostoniensis) is a distinguished part of the Boston Public Schools system and the oldest (English-speaking) learning institution (1635) in America. The Boston Latin School Association has its own website.

If you have pictures of the previous reunions, i.e., 5th, 10th, and 15th, and you'd like to share them with everyone, please send them to me. I'll take digital or paper pictures (I'll send back any paper pictures after I scan them in). Also! Many of you went missing at the 25th and 30th reunions and we may not have seen you since high school graduation. If you'd like to submit a current picture for your classmates, send me photograph (or electronic version) and I'll post it.

Tony Amara runs the BLS Class of 1980 Facebook page that he named Sumus Quasi Senes, loosely translated to be "we're old, kinda" (approved by Mr. Demerit).

Please check with the alumnae association at 617-450-0004 to make sure your contact information is correct. Many people had erroneous addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses on record so those people did not find out about the reunion.

Does this mean we're sharing the space with the classes of 1981 and 1982 or are we getting our own area?
