Elementary? No

Middle School? No

High School? Yes

University? I keep in touch with those I am close to. We had 2000 students in some lectures. I wouldn’t even recognize most of them.

I doubt enough people would show up to anything for my elementary school or jr high (different grades than middle school here).  When I was a kid my elementary school did invite people for the 25th anniversary and intended it to be a reunion, they had clusters for people from different years but they were fairly empty.  It was mainly the current students, their parents, teachers, and a few retired teachers/transferred teachers who showed up.

I did go to my high school one and had fun.

I would like to go to a reunion for the academic club I was involved with in university.  Or in the future, get together with people from my group in grad studies.

Elementary and middle school reunions would make no sense to me, because usually the people you went to elementary school and middle school with you also went to high school with and thus would be at your high school reunion.

Not a fan of reunions in general though. Anyone I liked enough I kept in touch with on my own.

No to them all. If I want to keep in touch with you I would already be doing it I find reunions to be just a brag fest.

Reunions became obsolete with the invention of Facebook.

I likely wouldn’t go to any of them. I keep on touch with the people I want to keep in touch with and don’t really have a desire to see my other classmates.

My high school reunion is in a few weeks and so far like 30 out of 200 are going. I am not one of them. I still associate with those that I care about. I don’t need to waste a Saturday reminiscing with the slackers who have done nothing with their lives. 

If you’ve lived in the same place most of your life like I have, all of the same people would attend an elementary, middle school and high school reunion so it wouldn’t make any sense to have these. As for college, I still have a relationship with the few that I cared to keep in touch with so no, I wouldn’t attend a reunion if they had one.

While I agree that it isn’t really necessary with Facebook in the picture, I went to my high school reunion a couple of years ago and it was SO fun! I just wish more people would have shown up! I will definitely be going to the next one. Do they do them for the 15 year mark?

hahahaha NO! I wont even go to my high school ones….(haven’t been out 10 years and my class has held 4 of them including 1 the weekend after we graduated!) I keep in touch with who I want and the rest I personally don’t care to see but then I had a ROUGH go in high school….I was bullied (I wasn’t size 2, I got good grades, I didn’t get drunk or do drugs like everyone else in my class, and I didn’t screw every member of the football team so I was the “fat nerd” that I had my own group of friends and the rest of the people I went to high school with I personally don’t care if I ever see again, plus some of these people STILL after 8 YEARS enjoy trying to bully people via facebook and try and do it on the rare occasion I do see them in person and enjoy teaching their kids to be a******s like them, I know that because my niece and nephews go to school with their kids and their parents encourage it) I am from a small town where money rules everything and it is literally the a**hole capital of the area….

so nope wouldn’t want em don’t care….I talk to those I want to keep in contact with the rest can kiss it while they are stuck in a crap town trying to live off mommy and daddies money and name and make the world around them miserable….out of my 50 person class I would say approximately 1/3 never left and never will about another 1/3 left and came back because no one cares outside of your hometown who your mom and dad are….

I would actually be MORE interestedin an elementary school reunion. Where I grew up there were tons and tons of schools feeding the high school so I didn’t actually know a big percentage of the people in my graduating class personally because it was so large. Elementary school reunion would be more pared down to people I actually had a personal relationship with.

But I doubt anyone would go to an elementary school reunion haha

I hate everyone I went to hs with, which is just about everyone I went to es and ms with too. They try to friend me on fb like, oh NOW u want to be friends. Nope, I will judge u by the way u acted when u were 13 for the rest of our lives. No reunions for me.
