Official Sammamish High School
Class of '61 Website

This site has been created and is managed by fellow classmates at zero cost to you. It exists to promote, celebrate and reconnect with all members of our class of 1961.

Once you join the site, you'll find announcements about activities of fellow classmates, up-to-date reunion information (when a reunion is being planned), plenty of memories from our high school days, and a great way to see what's become of everyone and reconnect with old friends.

This site isn't about
waistlines, hairlines, or credit lines.
It's about lifelines.
It's about reconnecting with our friends
from some of the best years of our lives!
