To all Stagg Alumni—This is our annual fund-raising appeal. Everything that we can do to support current Stagg students is dependent on your response. As students settle into the routine of the school year, the Alumni Association has already received applications from teachers for funds to enrich student learning. We hope you will consider joining us in their support. Please take time to write a check, or go online and contribute. And pass the word along to your classmates.
We have been fortunate to have received strong support from a core group of alumni, particularly in the class of 1965, who contribute every year. A growing number of reunion classes have made contributions, and Chase Chevrolet has been a steadfast supporter. After six years, we have a solid base on which to build.
However, if we are to grow our support for campus programs, we must enlarge the number of our active supporters. If you have given in the past, please stick with us, and give again. If you missed last year, please come back—we lost about 20 of you last year. And if you have promised to send a check but not followed through, please do so now. To put it in the bluntest possible terms, we need more of our alumni to respond to this appeal. Last year was the first since we began in which contributions declined. We need to do better for Stagg.
Through the generosity of the family and friends of Gary Wong, ’75, the Alumni Association is administering a fund dedicated to Stagg’s band program. After a year of planning, a new program is beginning this fall in which UOP instrumental students will give lessons and sectionals at Stagg to our students. We have funding for two years, and hope the program will continue through additional gifts. Please contact me if you would like a fuller description.
Thank you very much for your support. We are making a difference in the lives of today’s Stagg students.

The Alumni Association was created in 2010 to:
- Help connect our alumni to each other and to Stagg High School.
- Promote Stagg High School in the community.
- Support the Stagg community as it educates the next generation of Stagg students.
Join us! We are working to have all Stagg alumni sign up so that we have good class and contact information. No information will be shared with anyone outside the Association. Your class can use our resources to reach you with information about your reunion and other class activities. We will keep you informed about important events at Stagg and offer opportunities for you to support our efforts. Email firstname.lastname@example.org, or sign up on the website.
Help us! In the last four years we have funded roughly $20,000 in programs. With your help, we will do much more. We have
- Subsidized Advanced Placement exam fees;
- Funded a new amplifier for the theater;
- Purchased two guitarrons for Stagg’s mariachi band; arranged for donated repair of Stagg’s string instruments by a professional luthier.
- Helped to fund field trips for biology, Yearbook, Stagg Line, language department programs, student clubs and organizations.
- Financed speakers on campus.
- Funded the inauguration of an exciting “Music Olympiad” event, now in its third year, and a model for music education in our area.
- Purchased computers, solar boat and prosthetic arm supplies for Stagg’s MESA team (3rd in Calif. this year, has won first in U.S. twice).
Please give generously! Every cent you give goes to support Stagg High School and its students. Stagg needs you!
