Class Reunions 2023

Whatever stage of life, it's good to reconnect with people who are part of your story. We support five-year reunion gatherings by hosting a picnic Friday evening, breakfast Saturday morning, and lunch options to purchase on Saturday where groups can reserve tables to gather informally. We also help class coordinators communicate with classmates, provide space free of charge in the school, and share ideas for gatherings.

Details about reunions for classes ending in 3 and 8 during Homecoming 2023 will be added below as we receive them.

If you have questions or would like to help with your class reunion, contact or phone 540-236-6025. Erin Kennedy Hess is ready to help!

*Registration will open August 1. Your registration is especially helpful as we prepare food for the Homecoming Picnic, Friday at 5 p.m., and Homecoming Breakfast, Saturday at 8:30 a.m.
