18 April, 2015 – Spring Alumni Picnic


It was a small turnout but lots of fun!
Check out the 2015 Spring Alumni Picnic page for more pictures.

Several alumni have express regret at not being able to attend a Saturday picnic as they have to work so we’re considering having the Fall Picnic on a Sunday.  Check out the Project MORE Facebook page to weigh in on our poll (coming soon.)

Sad news to start the New Year.  Tom Anderson reports that Clyde Tidwell has gone to that big alternative school in the sky.  While Clyde didn’t teach at MORE,  many alumni from the 70’s and 80’s remember him fondly as the heart and soul of Cherry Field (Senior High Accommodations.)  Here’s a link to  Tom’s pictures of Clyde on the TUSD Alternative ED Alumni website. http://www.alternativeedalumni.com/clyde/

Requiescat in pace.

Thanks to all who participated in our Alumni Picnic survey.  The survey is now closed and we’ll be posting the results shortly.

(Edited) Cort Russell (’98) sent us a few pics from the 1998 graduation and newspaper articles from 1997, 98 and 99 Tucson Citizens.  Check them out at  http://projectmorealumni.com/1998-graduation-pictures/  and http://projectmorealumni.com/tucson-citizen-articles-1997-99-from-cort-russell-98/

Wayne Esquivel (’92) wrote with additional info about Chris McFarland’s date of death and we’ve added it to the Absent Friends page.  Requiescat in pace. On a happier note, Wayne has three kids, still plays the guitar (as do two of his kids) and has been teaching elementary school for the last 12 years :-)

If you want to share your story, send an email and we’ll post it !

Happy Holidays!
