DISTINGUISHED ALUMNI NOMINATIONS - Remember to get your nominations in. December 31 is the last day for the nominations for the 2016 selection. The 2015 inductee is Douglas Lauffenburger from the Class '71.

VISITORS TO MAINE WEST - We welcome visitors to Maine West as long as you have set an appointment ahead of time! If you wish to see a teacher, counselor or administrator, please make arrangements in advance by emailing or calling to schedule an appointment. When you arrive to Maine West, we will contact that person to come and greet you at the door.  Without an appointment during school hours, you may not be allowed to enter the building.

Thanks for your cooperation!

LEGENDs FOR SALE - Last August we discovered boxes of extra LEGENDs and started selling them last September. For the past year we only allowed you to purchase your senior yearbook. We are now opening the sales to ALL FOUR YEARS. The proceeds of the sales go to the LEGEND office budget and the budget for the new Warrior Room (R-202). Visit the LEGEND SALE.

The school has designated R-202, one of the meeting rooms, as the Warrior Room. This room will be a school museum. They've purchased a couple of glass display cases to hold things from each decade and framed things for the walls. The school is requesting all alumni who have memorabilia they no longer wish to store and have historical interest (Letter Sweaters, trophies, books, pictures, buttons, etc) consider sending it (or them) to the school. The school will not be returning things to you, this is a permanent donation. The school hopes to have much more than it can display so that they can rotate the displays every year.

We have many alumni who've authored books. We have set up a new page under the Alumni&Teacher Info/Authors, to be used to show their books and where to purchase them.

The third batch Engraved Bricks are in. Check out the Brick Project to see some of the samples. Go to the Alumni&Teacher Info/Things to Buy to get an order form.

We are accepting Business Cards. If you would like to advertise your business send in a card and we'll get it on the site. Go to Alumni Info/Business Cards.

All reunion committees should check in with us for any assistance, a copy of the current class list, as well as info posting.
