We remember the teachers and coaches who affected our lives.  Those who are still around are invited to attend the 55th Reunion.

And there are former teachers who are doing well! Mrs. Irma Tracy. of Social Studies. is still active in a Dance Group in Santa Clara at age 95.  Mr. Kirchgatter. who taught Math,  attends many reunions at Sequoia.  And Mrs. Jone Small Manoogian, of Girls PE, is an active artist in the area.  

And Mrs. Winburg of Social Studies died at age 99! 

Listed below are the names of those who were teachers while we were at Sequoia.  THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS.  We are attempting to find out where they are, and how they are.  Since we called them "Mr." or "Mrs." or "Miss," we don't always know their first names.  That makes it hard to find them.  If you can help us with first names, or tell us what happened to them, or where they are now, PLEASE DO.  These people mattered to us.

Here is what we know so far.  Those listed in bold are alive and well.

Mahalo to Vivian Bertrand Frazer for informing us on the death of Malcolm Mitchell, a social studies teacher many of us remember well and appreciated.  
And thanks to Dave Bogdanoff who shared the news of the death of Dorothea Kauffman, English teacher and wife of math teacher Don Kauffman.  Both had been kind mentors to many of us.
