Dear The Dalles Wahtonka 1965 Classmate:

We’ve made a long journey since we graduated from high school and once more in our lives we are considered “seniors.”As a class back in 1965 we left a gift to our respective schools.  For The Dalles, it was a needed drinking fountain for the parched throats of those playing on the tennis courts behind the school.  At Wahtonka, combined efforts with previous classes to purchase a professionally designed school crest were arranged.Looking back most of us can appreciate the benefits we gained from our high school experiences.  Your joint planning committee thinks it time to again repay our alma mater.  We have investigated the school’s needs and found a wanting for mobile electronic devices.  To quote current The Dalles Wahtonka Principal, Steve Jupe:

 The continued escalation in cost of textbooks while dealing with shrinking budgets can be predicted to cause our school to choose other media for educational transmission in the very near future.  A promising alternative that could either supplement or possibly supplant part of future textbook demand is portable educational technology. 

A goal for the purchase of these electronic devices for the school has been set and hope to fulfill during the 2012-13 school year.

We suggest donations of $19.65 or more from each member of the class to raise these funds.  You may designate your donation as a remembrance for a special classmate, faculty or community member—living or deceased–that you wish to honor.   Please consider making more than one donation for multiple honorees.

It is our desire to honor your donation by listing your name and remembrance, if desired, on our website.   In addition we will send, at your request, a donation recognition letter to you for each honoree.
