Palo Alto High School
Class Of 1972

Welcome to our own Paly Class Of 1972 web site!

"When we're connected to others, we become better people."
-- Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture

"Growing apart doesn't change the fact that for a long time we grew side by side; our roots will always be tangled. I'm glad for that." -- Ally Condie

Check out the new tab to your left in the yellow sidebar:
Paly Authors!


πŸ’šOur 50 Year Reunion was a success! Thanks to the committee who helped make it a memorable weekend.
If you attended, it was great seeing you!
If you missed it, we missed YOU! Stay tuned for future events!

Please post photos taken at any of the events on the
Our Photo Galleries 

Also - the poem and letter that were read are in the link "Thoughtful Words"
in the yellow sidebar.


Help us find our missing classmates!

We only have a little more than half of our classmates on this page!

If you know the email address of a missing classmate, you can enter their email address in the space to the right of this screen, and it will send them an invite to join the website.

This will be an ongoing process:  if you have Class of '72 alums on your email contact list or on your Facebook friends list, PLEASE share this website with them.  Or send their contact info to me at  the "Contact Us" link.  We will want to contact as many as we can for our next event!

Have you changed your mailing and/or email address?

Please keep your contact info current by clicking on "Edit Contact Info" on your left.  Otherwise this website will receive a "bounced" message and we would have no way to contact you for future get-togethers or announcements.  Don't forget to SAVE the changes at the bottom of that screen.



We have a Flickr site where all reunion photos and videos can be uploaded:
Contact Bennett Hall for information via the Message Center (or email him). You will be able to download photos from there as well, and if you sign on to Flickr, you will be able to add comments.

Photos can be loaded on this site as well under "Our Photo Gallery" in the bar to your left
