You won't want to miss it!
In 1972, Portland Public Schools high schools each graduated a Class of '72. At that time, fourteen area high schools existed, yet today, five of those schools, Adams, Jackson, Marshall, Monroe, and Washington, are no longer.

To create a truly inclusive and memorable 50th High School Reunion experience for all, we welcome you to "Tonight We're Gonna Party Like it's 1972!," a special event to honor all 1972 graduates of PPS high schools.

Please join us on August 5th, 2022, at the Oregon Convention Center for a fun-filled evening celebrating lifelong friends and Ol' School memories!

We'll gather together to dance to the soundtrack of '72 and enjoy fantastic food provided by world-class chef Allan Wambaa.

The night will also feature an In-Memorial Tribute, raffles, trivia games, and photos as memoirs of this wonderful time in our lives.
