Tenement Elementary School
Class Of 1981

Welcome to the Tenement Elementary High Class Of 1981 web site.

This network are a new class of websites that empower people to come together and make things happen.

It doesn't matter who you were, just join as who you are!

Everybody got older, started getting married, and moving on with life in their own direction, but the spirit and the memory of the good old times can never be forgotten.

Now TES Group is here as a tribute to the good times, the good friends we still have and those we have lost along the way, the new ones we'll make, and some great cheers to bring it all together.

We're excited we will see each other again!

 


 

 
 
It's normal to experience the class reunion jitters. Don't let insecurities force you to miss what could be the time of your life.  Try these suggestions to improve your comfort level:
 
  1. Take an afternoon or evening to jot down all of your positive school memories, look over photos of old friends and listen to music from your school years.

  2. Make a mental list of all that you have accomplished and how you have grown through the years.

  3. Get in touch with at least two former classmates. Reminiscing with old pals will help you to get in the reunion spirit.

  4. Ask to help with the reunion planning. There's always room for one more planning committee member, and it will help awaken your enthusiasm for the event.

  5. Arrive in your hometown one day early if you don't live there. Spend quality time visiting your favorite spots, driving around your old neighborhood and dwelling on nostalgia.

  6. Look your best. Rather than crash dieting, stepping up your health and fitness program several months prior to the reunion will ensure that you look and feel your best.

    Hey!  Remember that everyone had insecurities and issues in school. Approach the reunion as an opportunity for reconciliation, understanding and fun!

 


 NO EXCUSES!

If you are NOT coming to the reunion, you need a REALLY good excuse and a note from your Mom! The following reasons have been tried and are UNACCEPTABLE:

Excuse #1: I've gained a lot of weight!
Rebuttal: Look around!! I doubt any of us could get back into our jeans from high school any more.
 

Excuse #2: I'm a different person than I was in high school.
Rebuttal: Lucky for you, we ALL are. Let's face it: we could only have improved.

Excuse #3: I don't look as good as I'd like. I (choose one or more) am bald, have wrinkles, saddlebags, grey hair and no one will recognize me.
Rebuttal: Guess what! You won't recognize anyone else, either. Our whole class looks like a "before" photo in a plastic surgery ad (just kidding).

Excuse #4: I'm not successful. I'm not (choose one or more) a lawyer, a doctor or rich.
Rebuttal: You'll be pleasantly surprised to find how much everyone has matured. We may be plump and wrinkled (see Excuse #3, above) but we're not stupid. Money is not success. (Read the daily quotes on the homepage). You have found success when you are happy doing what you're doing!

Excuse #5: I was not in a popular clique in school. Rebuttal: Now that we're older and smarter, those cliques have dissolved just like the superficialities they were based on. The only cliques you'll notice at the reunion will be the sound of your joints as you walk around.

Excuse #6: It seems like all the classmates drink alcohol at the reunion.
Rebuttal: Not all of us drink - plain and simple. Some of us only have a few drinks at the reunion to relax - because we're nervous - but if you don't want to drink alcohol there'll be plenty of other drinks available.

 


Tips and Warnings:

  • Ask attendees to send alumni histories with their RSVPs. Create an inexpensive memory album with a then-and-now for each student.
  • Set RSVP and payment deadlines well in advance.
  • Make name tags for all attendees. You can include a senior photo on the name tag if it is not cost-prohibitive.
  • Prepare a slide show or video compilation for the main event. Ask attendees to send their own clips for inclusion, and return all clips at the event.
  • Decorate the center of tables with balloons in your school colors, stuffed mascot toys and relics from your school era.
