Welcome to the South St. Paul High School
Class Of 1963 Web Site.



If you haven't had the fun of seeing our very own yearbook on the Web, check this out:

Would you have ever imagined something amazing like this back in 1963?  I see they're having a "sale" and the regular price of $99.99 is 20% off plus free shipping for a limited time!  Wowee! If you don't have your own copy handy, take a stroll down memory! Still boggles the mind, doesn't it?

Hometown Change?

There could be some big changes coming to the way our hometown looks and feels. This story was in the Minneapolis Star Tribune on February 6, 2014:

The corner of 10th Avenue S. and Southview Boulevard in South St. Paul, home of the former "Bunny's." The city is conducting a planning study of the Southview-Marie area.


Through the Years...

Geri Shank Lynch and Butch Robinson have been friends for a long time. They walked to school holding hands on the first day of kindergarten and 63 years later they held hands (in full view of their spouses) at the reunion. Some connections last forever. - Thanks for sharing!

All known classmate addresses have now been added to this site.  If your address is showing under "Classmate Profiles"  it is because you added it yourself and opted to let us see it. If you are new to the site, please check "Edit Profile" to see whether we have your address listed correctly. 


This site was meant to be a repository for classmates' records and will be our one-stop source for future reunion planning. But YOU have the option of allowing others to see only what you want them to see.


Go to "Edit Profile" (on the left hand margin) and scroll to the bottom of your profile. Check the box that hides your address and any other information you wish to be private. To verify this, on the Home Page, select "Classmate Profiles" up on the top border. Then select your name to see what everyone else sees.

If you have questions about privacy, feel free to use the "Contact Us" option or email me at


We did NOT see Dick & Jane
We did NOT see Spot run.
Proof positive that we were not  "Dick & Jane" readers. We may have been in a very small, select group of kids of that era who did not learn to read from Dick & Jane books.  It would be interesting to know why, and for how long, the SSP School District chose to go with the
"Alice & Jerry" series.


♦Message Forum♦

Please feel free to use the Message Forum for any comments you wish to express about ANYTHING! It is a space for open communication with former classmates and may be considered our "chat room." Other than posting something on your Profile, it is the only way to record your visit to the site. It would be very helpful to us to gauge how many members are viewing the site so by all means, leave a message.  Hopefully, we can get a fun conversation going, but if nothing else, just say "Hi!" Love to hear from you.
