    Welcome to the SPFHS Alumni Association's Website
     
     
    SPFHS class of 2020: We congratulate you on a job well done, done from your heart.  Good luck on pursuing your worthy and valuable dreams!
     
    Congratulations 2020 SPFHS Alumni Association scholarship recipients Gabriel Donatelli and Emma Hastrup!  Read SPFHS Alumni Association President, Laura Swidersky's article about all of their great activities and goals.  Please click here for the article.
     
    SPFHS Alumni Association President, Laura Swidersky, has the following messages: 1) The Alumni Association is experiencing difficulty due to a lack of volunteers.  2) The Brick Walk is still active.
    Please email us if you'd like to volunteer.  Please purchase a brick here.  All brick purchases go to support our future Alumni Association scholarships.
     
    Please click here to view the May/June, 2020 Alumni Association newsletter.  We thank Carolyn Quinn '79 for stepping up to edit this one edition of the newsletter for us!  Thank you, Carolyn!  Great job!
     
    With Memorial Day having just passed, we would like to pause and thank all SPFHS graduates, and the wider community, for their many types of service.  So many have gone above and beyond to make life better for us.  As the saying goes, 'all gave some, some gave all'.  Thank you.  We honor your faithful contributions.
     
    Would YOU, or someone you know, like to be our next newsletter editor?  Carolyn Quinn has said she is unable to continue as editor.  We are seeking a permanent editor to edit all future editions for us.  Many SPFHS graduates, from all class years, from the late 1930's and the 40's, all the way up to today's graduates, look forward to the newsletter, and value their connection to this great place, SPFHS.  The only way we can have a newsletter going forward into the future is if an SPFHS alumni volunteers to take on this much-appreciated volunteer position.  A chance to use your creativity.  So many alumni will be most thankful to you.  Interested?  Would you like more info?  Please email spfhsalumni@aol.com and we will put you in touch with Marie Leppert '44, a former newsletter editor for a long period of time.  Thank you!
     
     
     In Loving Memory of Mr. David Multer, SPFHS class of 1970, and History teacher at SPFHS for over 40 years, who was inducted posthumously into the SPFHS Alumni Hall of Fame in December, 2019.
    Please click here to read the Fanscotian/ TAP Into SPF article with memories of Mr. Multer, and then, please email your memories of Mr. Multer to us at spfhsalumni@aol.com,
    and we will post your memories here!  Click here to read memories that alumni have submitted to us.
     
    Update: Dear SPFHS Alumni: Thank you so much for taking the time to visit this website.  Please consider making this website more interesting, by considering what you can contribute to this website and/or the next Alumni Association newsletter.  Please let us know what you've been up to in your life, share a memory, share a creative article, or share anything that you'd like other alumni to read!  It doesn't have to be profound or major.  The more alumni that contribute, the more dynamic and thought provoking the newsletter and this website will become.  Please also let us know if you'd like to volunteer to help the Alumni Association: we currently have only a few volunteers, attempting to do all the work themselves.  Any amount of help would be appreciated, whether assisting in a small way, or taking on a major leadership role.  Please also send us an email if you would like to recieve occasional emails from us (sent bcc) including any future Alumni Association newsletters.  Please spread the word to your SPFHS friends and classmates. Thank you, and please let us hear from you!
    Please email spfhsalumni@aol.com
