UPDATE ON THE North High Viking Site:


All Items in Blue are either Web Links or Email Links



We have so many classmates from North High, but only a small amount has registered on the website.  Everyone has commented on their enthusiasm of having such a connection to old classmates.  Please spread the word to everyone to register before our connections are lost.  It has been a long road to set this website up and all the people that help keep it going are excited about it, but we need your help also.  Please send us any information, updates, obituaries and fun things your class is doing to stay connected.

If you would like to put an event (for any and all classes) in the Monthly Newsletter, please send it to Margie Ritter (Moore) 1967, Monthly News Administrator, at E-mail Margie.  MaryLou Hayward 1966, Monthly News editor, at E-mail MaryLou before the end of the month. We would like to have one website so all the classes can share their events and not miss out spending time with their classmates. Your event also will be posted on the Announncement Page. Please check this page often.


Our sincere condolences to family and friends of the following Vikings. They have been added to the Memorial page where you can also obtain more information.
