Initiatives and Partners
The South Park High School Alumni Association directs its energies towards a number of initiatives intended to enrich the quality of education for current students at South Park High School and to celebrate the bonds and memories of those who have walked its halls in the past.
The following is a list of a few of the initiatives the association carries out to achieve these goals:
Reunions: The alumni association sponsors milestone reunions which are open to all alumni from every class every 5 to 10 years (75th, 80th, 90th, 100th anniversary of the school etc.)
We can also help individual class reunions by providing class list printouts, mailing labels, copies, envelopes and discount bulk mailing rates (qualifiying amounts necessary). Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need more information.
Scholarships: The scholarship fund awards one $800 scholarship to a deserving senior each June. To make a donation to the scholarship fund you can send your donation to: SPHSAA Scholarship Fund, 150 Southside Parkway, Buffalo, NY 14220.
Brick Patio: The Alumni Association in conjunction with the South Park Yearbook, “The Dial,” sponsors the “Courtyard Brick Patio Project”. This endeavor includes the sale of engraved bricks which adorn the courtyard of the school. The terra cotta bricks measures 7” X 4” X 2” and cost $50.00. Each can be customized with up to three lines of print (15 charters each line). The type is available in either Block or Script lettering. Individual, class or memorial bricks can be ordered by clicking on the "courtyard bricks" button on the Alumni Main Page.
Spirit fund: The Alumni Association sponsors a “Spirit Fund” which benefits the current students who are doing the right thing. These monies can offset/finance a variety of events, materials or expenses for students. 100% of these monies goes directly to benefit students. If you would like to support this fund you can send a monetary donation to: South Park High School, Spirit Fund, 150 Southside Parkway, Buffalo, NY 14220.
Yearbooks: The Alumni Association, along with the yearbook “The Dial,” sell old yearbooks for $25.00. If we have surplus copies of the yearbook you are looking for, we will gladly sell the extra copies.
