Monte Vista Alumni Potluck Picnic
Location: NTC Park at Liberty Station
Details: The Monte Vista Class of '67 is sponsoring a picnic that will be held on Sunday, October 8, 2023 at NTC Park at Liberty Station.
We would like to extend an invitation to other alumni of Monte Vista, especially those from the classes of 1962 through 1970 who attended Monte Vista when we went there.

We will be located near the corner of Womble Rd. and Cushing Rd at Liberty Station. Things will start at 10:00AM and go till 5:00 PM.
Look for our Popups and banners and other Monarchs.

It will be a POTLUCK affair, so bring your lawn chairs and a dish to share. We will provide water but if you have a preferred beverage, you can bring your own.

We encourage you to bring family members and make this an event to remember. Pass the word around to anyone that you think might be interested. We would like to make this an annual event so that our classmates can all reconnect.

Spring Valley's Monte Vista High School Class of 1967 Fiftieth Reunion!
Location: Hooley's Irish Pub
Details: Hello Monarchs! THIS IS LONG BUT INCLUDES ALL THE DETAILS OF HOW/WHERE TO RSVP, etc. VISIT OUR FACEBOOK PAGE: "Monte Vista 1967 50th REUNION Spring Valley, CA" AND do not RSVP on this site but RSVP to Judy Potter at

Well believe it or not....have we REALLY been out of high school for 50 years?!! Doesn't seem possible! We are making plans for our Reunion which will take place on Saturday, October 14, 2017. It will take place at Hooley's Irish Pub in Rancho San Diego with festivities beginning at 3pm until whenever!

Consensus told us that all most people want to do is just visit, laugh, talk, take photos and plain catch up! We have the room for as long as we need it which gives everyone plenty of time to be together. The first drink is on us, plus there will be lots of appetizers. If you decide to have dinner later, Hooley's has a great menu where you could go into the restaurant and purchase dinner if you desire.

We are asking for $25 per person at the door, or if you'd like to pay in advance the price would be $20 per person with a check made out to Monte Vista Reunion to be sent to address below. Whether you pay in advance or at the door, please RSVP with your name and the name of anyone else you are bringing with you as soon as possible. We need to get an approximate count and need the names for badges. Very important!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact any one of us on the committee. Our email addresses are listed below. We are looking so forward to seeing so many of our classmates and wanted to make sure and get the info out early enough so that those that live out of town would have plenty of time to make plans. (Probably a good idea for all planning to attend to RSVP to Judy Potter Scharnow rather than have all three gals receiving RSVP's. Of course the best way to RSVP is to send your check for $20 per person and a quick note as to how many will be in your party)
Hopefully most of our graduates will receive an email or see this post on this reunion website. If you know of someone that did not receive it, please help us spread the word and have them contact us.
Thank you,
Your Monte Vista Reunion Committee

Details: OK all you Senior Citizens, Whether you have good, bad or no memories of your years as a Mighty Monarch, we want to see you all at our 40 Year Reunion. At this age, it doesn’t really matter who did what to whom, or if you didn’t feel connected. Just think of it as an opportunity to network, a chance to make new friends, (even though they’re old ones), a wonderful occasion to spend a relaxing evening at an incredible venue, eating, talking and enjoying the beautiful San Diego skyline. An opportunity most would die to have, and we’re so lucky because we grew up here. Please participate, and in doing so, you may discover your soul will be nourished in a way you could not have imagined, because the older we get the wiser we get. Isn’t that what it’s all about? We look forward to re-connecting with you all soon. LXX is still Rex!

Details: Hello Monte Vista Class of 1989! If you can believe it, nearly 20 years have passed since we last walked the hallways of Monte Vista High School. Our 20-year reunion is around the corner and we want to see the entire graduating class! Plenty has happened in these past 20 years and we want to hear all about it. This June, head to San Diego for a visit with old friends and to see your classmates in person! Saturday, June 27, 2009 from 7 PM to Midnight Holiday Inn on the Bay ~ Porthole Room 1355 N. Harbor Dr. San Diego, CA 92101 California Casual Attire ~ No Host Cash Bar We’ve teamed up with Reunion-Specialists to make this a really fun night. You can help by simply doing the following: • Register: Visit to confirm your whereabouts, request songs for the reunion, and write your biography for inclusion in the memory book. Even if you’re unable to attend, please visit the site because your classmates want to know where you are and what the last twenty years have meant to you. • Reserve: Once you’re registered, you can make your reservation online at The sooner you can make your reservation, the cheaper your reunion tickets will be! We’ve worked hard to get the right price for you, so please take advantage of that. • Reach Out: We’ve found many classmates already, but if you know the whereabouts of anyone on the missing classmates list, please have them visit or call (760) 721-0525. Additionally, please tell the classmates you keep in contact with to visit the website as it would be a shame for any classmate to be left out of the festivities! • Memorial: If you have any information, about any alum that has passed away, please contact the reunion committee, as we would like to honor their memory. • Memory Board: We’d like to create a fun display of old photos, school newspapers, and other memorabilia from our high school years. If you have anything you can lend to the reunion committee, please contact us. We’ll be sure to label all items and return them to you after the reunion. • DVD Slideshow: We would like to make a DVD slideshow. We are looking for someone from the class who would put this together for the reunion. Please contact a committee member if you are interested if helping with the slideshow. Details on how and where to send the photos will be posted on the website. • Relax: We’ll take care of the rest … just keep your eyes on for more information on the reunion festivities. So, instead of wondering, “What ever happened to…?”, come to the reunion and check it out for yourself! Join us in an exciting night of sharing life stories, rekindling old friendships, and creating new memories. Remember, the reunion won’t be the same without you and those who expect to see you will be disappointed if you don’t attend. So mark your calendars and plan to be there! We look forward to seeing all of you at our 20-year reunion, Saturday, June 27, 2009, 7pm – Midnight, at Holiday Inn on the Bay in beautiful San Diego!
