Reading Alumni

The last year for Reading High School  was 1980, however the High School Alumni would like to welcome our younger graduates (those that graduated from Junior High or Grade School) or anyone that attended Reading School to be a part of the Alumni.   


Please fill out the online Join the Reading Alumni form if you are interested and you will be added and informed of Alumni activities.

"Gathering of the Pride"
Past and present Lions should gather together for one night to express our thanks, and bid farewell to a great school. Any ideas are greatly appreciated...
The date for gathering has not been set, still in planning stage.  Let’s show everyone that we will always be Reading Lions!  Kinsey Jones

If you have any memories you would like to share now please enter them into the favorite memory form.  Thank you
