LETTER TO ALL ALUMNI

February 2021

Hello Paly Vikes Alumni,

First, let’s hope for a better 2021 for the whole world!! For us, we hope Paly Alumni reunions and other activities can resume in the fall. Until then, take time to enjoy your wonderful website. As of now, Palo Alto High School will not hold regular classes this school year. I know this is very hard on the students because my two Paly grandchildren (one, a senior) have told me regularly how much they are missing actual school.  For this school year, Staff is developing alternate small safe gatherings and a graduation of some sort. Plans change daily so best to check the Paly.net website or Palo Alto Weekly online.

Except for reunions, Paly Alumni is open and WE NEED YOUR HELP with donations to support the following projects.

$1000 for Website Software: Skilled volunteers maintain your palyalumni.net website. Be sure to explore your website and check regularly for updates and additions. Discover the Paly Journalism Archives, take a tour of Paly and visit with friends.


$2,000
for Scholarships: The Alumni Board has again approved two scholarships of $1000 each for qualifying graduating seniors.



$3,000/yr. for the PALY JOURNALISM DIGITAL ARCHIVE  SITE accessible through the alum website. Check out and/or download past publications including yearbooks and Campaniles from way back to the present. A valuable resource. Without funding, the Journalism Archive Project will be completely  removed.  

 

 

 

           

 

$10,000 for 10 new picnic/work tables on campus. Paly Admin has requested more of the heavy metal tables with attached benches so students can work safely outdoors.

 

 

 

All donations are tax deductible.

You can easily donate to our nonprofit. To the right on the Homepage of the palyalumni.net website you'll see boxes where you can click on "Donate" for the item of your choice.  Or select the Menu item, “Donate” at the upper-right on the Homepage and it will take you to the Donation Page to donate by check or credit card*. *PLEASE NOTE: A 5.9% processing fee will be applied to all credit card transactions reducing the total amount of your gift.  Please allow for the difference when making your donation, or if you prefer, mail a check. You will need to join our website in order to donate via credit card.  If you have not joined the site, we invite you to do so. (see First-Time Visitor Instructions on the Home Page). Our site is free and very secure.

Please make checks payable to:
Alumni and Friends of Palo Alto High School
mail to:
Alumni and Friends of Palo Alto High School  
50 Embarcadero Road, Palo Alto CA 94301

Please note on your check the project of choice for your donation, i.e. "Scholarships", "Alumni Assoc.", etc. 

We thank you for your ongoing support of Paly and the Alumni. Additional donations for the projects outlined above will be much appreciated by Paly students, staff and Alumni.

Go Vikings!!

Sincerely,

Edith Kirk Miller '63, Alum Chair, and the Paly Alumni Board
