Excellence in Christian Education since 1944

Racine Lutheran alumni become leaders—in their careers, churches and communities. More than 4,200 students have graduated from RLHS and have served, or are serving, in a wide and diverse number of fields. We are celebrating our 75th year of service to students, families, and congregations. We have three quarters of a century of experience, which provides a rich legacy for the future.

We always enjoy hearing from you, we are constantly proud of you, and we praise God for your interest in and support of your alma mater. Whether you are a recent graduate or you have been an alumnus for decades now, the Alumni Facebook page hopes to keep you informed about news and events that are important to you.

Reunions

2018 Reunions

Whether you are planning a simple family picnic or a formal event, your best chance for success is early planning.  Here are some suggestions of things to consider:

DETERMINING DATE

Look for dates that may draw more classmates to your reunion such as Homecoming Weekend in September, the Alumni Basketball Tournament in November, or the Grand Gala in February. Also, be aware of dates, such as holiday weekends, that may impact your classmate’s availability.

IDEAS FROM PAST CLASS REUNIONS

  • Arrange a buffet dinner with DJ and dancing
  • Organize a backyard or local park barbeque that may or may not include children
  • Coordinate an informal event at a local restaurant or bar
  • Include an activity to tie in with the event – afternoon golf outing before the dinner
  • Tour the school or attend a high school sporting event – RLHS has memorabilia from most years that can be displayed during the tour or used at your event

FINDING YOUR CLASSMATES

To access your class information on file, contact Krista Long, Development and Alumni Relations, at klong@RacineLutheran.org or 262.637.6538. Other ways to gather contact data could include: using social media or the internet to search for those you cannot find, perusing the local phone book because classmates’ parents may still live in the area, or asking other classmates for contact information of their best friends in the class. Make sure to update your roster as you locate classmates. Ask for their full names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses. To make future reunion planning easier, email a copy of your updated class roster to the school at the above email address.
