About the MDHS Reunion

As you may or may not know, we are going to be celebrating a Reunion at MDHS on May 22nd - 24th, 2009, (the weekend after May 24th) to recognize 55 Years at the Church Street site, 150 Years of Educating Markham and the End of an Era as the 89 Church Street building is going to be torn down and replaced.

The next incarnation of Markham District will be built on the football field, east of the present building, and the construction has begun.

I am inviting and encouraging all of you to put the dates on your calendar and plan on being in Markham for that weekend to take part in this once-in-a-lifetime event!
