The Wakefield Class of 1960 began to celebrate reunions starting in 1970 when they celebrated their 10th. Since then they have held reunions in 1980, 1985, 1990, 1995, 2000, 2005, and 2010, the last being our 50th reunion. We have pictures of our last four. If you have pictures from previous reunions please let us know. We would like to scan them and mount them on our website for everyone to enjoy. In the meantime, look back on these reunions:
If you want to know where anyone lived in the Fall of 1959, here is a copy of the directory. There is a short addition at the end of the file which gives the information for the students who spent part of their time at the Wakefield Annex, also known as Dolly Madison. Click on the image to go to the directory.
For a little fanciful nonsense, go to the Prophecy.
We have collected some things long buried away in boxes. If you have anything you would like to see here, send it on. Click on the picture to see what we have collected. You will not recognize this picture, but it is Hoover Field in 1932, located at the end of the 14th street bridge where Shirley Highway now stands. The George Washington Parkway was in place.
The Wakefield High School building that opened its doors in 1953, 60 years ago, has been torn down and has become a playing field.
Below is a view of the Dinwiddie Street entrance with the brick facing and windows removed. For some additional pictures of the new and old Wakefield click the following link to The Wakefield Education Foundation page:
The new, replacement building opened it's doors in the fall of 2013. To honor our school's past and future, the Wakefield Education Foundation sponsored a number of events on Friday the 17th, and Saturday the 18th of May 2013. Many former students attended the events, including several from the class of 1960. To view a synopsis of the events, click on the anniversary logo below.
