Montlake School almuni group
- Greetings from a 1962 graduate of Montlake Elementary School. I was
in Montlake recently visiting old friends when we discussed the idea
of creating a forum, similar to this one, for alumni of Montlake
School. At this point, we're just encouraging former students to sign
up and get reconnected, but I think we're hoping that sometime in the
future (perhaps Spring/Summer 2002) there will be enough interest to
have a neighborhood reunion.
At 50 years old, and having been in elementary education for 24
years, I am slowly realizing what a unique experience we had in
Montlake, both in the school and in the community. As I gradually re-
establish contact with others from Montlake, I'm discovering that
they feel the same way. When I compare my experience with my peers
who grew up in suburbia, I see they don't have the same feelings
about their neighborhood that I do.
If you know anyone who might be interested in joining the email
distribution list, please have them visit the site at:
or they can subscribe by sending an email message to:
Although I am currently the only member listed, I have verbal
commitment from Allan Seidenverg (Montlake class of 60) and Mark
Seidenverg (63) to join soon. Please help spread the news.
