2020 continues to be a very challenging year. The Redwood campus is empty as all classes are distance learning and all sports activities have been cancelled. The fires and smoke raging in California have polluted the air and forced everyone to stay inside. Racist and antisemitic acts have recently targeted Redwood and other Marin high school campuses. Concerns about the economy and school funding are everpresent. But there are many reasons to be hopeful! The creativity and dedication of teachers and students at Redwood continues. The Alumni Association is doing all it can to keep classmates connected, recognize distinguished alumni and support the quality education we all received at Redwood.

SUPPORT MEASURE M PARCEL TAX RENEWAL
The Alumni Association is encouraging you, your family and friends who live in the Tam District to
VOTE YES on M ... it will renew local parcel tax funding at the current rate for an additional 9 years (until 2029). The tax raises about $16.8 million per year for the schools and it represents 17% of the Tamalpias Union HS District budget. 

* Please note that Measure M funds cannot be used for administrator salaries, or for issues such as the potential name change of Sir Francis Drake High (temporarily known as Sir Francis Drake High or HS 1327).

Renewing Measure M will:

  • Maintain excellent applied technology, engineering and computer programming courses
  • Maintain Advanced Placement course offerings
  • Preserve athletics, arts and music electives
  • Protect robust science curriculum, including biomedical science, physiology, and environmental science courses
  • Attract and retain highly qualified and diverse teachers

Keep the Tamalpais Union High School District among the best by renewing local funding without increasing taxes. Please vote YES.

CANCELLATIONS AND CHANGES FOR 2020-2021 

The Corona Virus restrictions have caused the Alumni Association to reassess our plans for the 2020-2021 school year. The safety and health of our alumni is of prime importance. As of September 1, 2020:

  • We have cancelled the Athletic Hall of Fame Banquet which we had originally postponed to October 3, 2020. Monies were refunded or donated to the Redwood Scholarship Fund for 2021.
  • We have decided not to schedule the 2021 Avenue of Giants Speaker Day and Banquet , usually held in March for both the 2020 and 2021 inductees. A new date will probably take place in winter of 2022.
  • Nominations and selections of the 2021 Athletic Hall of Fame and Avenue of Giants will still take place in October, the deadline for new nominations is October 1, 2020. www.redwoodalumni.org for details.
  • Reunions for 2020 are either being cancelled or postponed. Please contact your class for details. There is certainly no reason why 2021 reunion classes can't get started in planning!
  • Reunions for 2021... Classes of '61. '71. '81, '91, '01 and '11 should start thinking about plans for fall of 2021! Contact us for help!

IN MEMORY OF MILLIE HACKWORTH REDWOOD SCIENCE TEACHER 1996-2016

We are very sad to share the news of the sudden passing of Millie Hackworth Milstead, beloved chemistry teacher at Redwood from 1996-2016 and at Drake until her death on Saturday. Millie had suffered from cardiac arrest early June 11, 2020 and could not recover. She leaves behind her husband Rod Milstead, also a teacher at Drake, and three children Tyler, Sydney, and Alden who will all be students at Drake in the fall. Her positive outlook, energy and creativity made her an outstanding teacher and colleague. She will be missed by so many.

A Go Fund Me site has been established for the family: MILLIE

And a Memories Page where you can leave memories of your connection to Millie: MEMORIES
