Come One, Come All Reunion
Alumnae from ALL classes come together May 13–15, 2022 for one heck of a celebration
Campus hasn’t been the same without you! Which is why we are throwing a party like no other — outdoors — May 13–15, 2022.
Designed as an antidote to pandemic isolation, our Come One Come All Reunion will be a hybrid gathering of friends across decades. It’s a chance for alums in contiguous classes from the 1940s to 2021 to reunite after so long, to reminisce, and to feel the MHS magic today.
Whether or not you have pre-registered, you'll need to make it official and indicate your size to receive your Come One, Come All Reunion swag, a limited edition MEUS HONOR STAT long-sleeve tee, designed by Samantha Taxter ’22!
Another goodie: Sam T. '22 has also created this super-cool sticker, for reunion attendees only!
Designed to stay put and also be removable without leaving residue. It looks awesome on water bottles, computers, windows, and just about anywhere.
Register today and put dibs on yours!
The tents are up!
Friends and beloved teachers will reconnect out-of-doors in “decade tents” scattered around campus — your place to meet up, catch up, and take time to be together.
There will be opportunities to toast each other, to cheer on student-athletes, to sing with the Grace Notes, and for everyone to sign the Book of the School! Families are welcome.
Blue and Gold shopping will never be better, with brand-spanking-new Miss Hall’s gear, a student Maker’s Marketplace, and the 9th Grade Plant Sale, lovingly-cultivated in the Ara West Grinnell 1901 Greenhouse.
Alums unable to return to Holmes Road will be able to Zoom into reunion at key points during the weekend — a renewed sense that MHS is all of us.
In order to keep each other—and the students on campus—safe, advance registration, vaccination, and proof of negative COVID test are required.
Attendees are asked to bring:
1. Vax card — everyone planning to come to campus at any time during the weekend must register in advance and show proof of vaccination upon arrival (a photo is fine!)
2. Negative COVID test — photo or printed results of a PCR test or rapid/antigen/at-home test from the past 24 hours.
3. Extra rapid/antigen/at-home tests. Given the highly contagious, sneaky nature of new variants, everyone must rapid test each day before returning to campus.
If you have a medical exemption, please contact Lynelle Weaver at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for doing your part to keep our community healthy!

First-ever $5 Million Challenge!
To commemorate this historic coming together, we have embarked on an historic $5 Million Come One, Come All Challenge to transform girls’ lives.
A generous alum has put her hand up to offer $2,500,000 in support of her alma mater IF we can collectively raise another $2,500,000 in advance of this May 13-15 Reunion. Never before have we set such an audacious goal for empowering girls. It will take all of us stretching to unlock this amazing challenge. Every dollar counts.
Update: as of April 15, we have raised a total of $4,262,000! Just $738,000, and four weeks to go. WE CAN DO IT! We are MHS.
