Spring Valley High School in Minnesota – Class of 1980

Hi SVHS Class of 1980,

I’m sending out a message to all of the Spring Valley HS Class of 1980 to join us on our secure Class Creator website at this link:

Spring Valley High School Class of 1980

This will help us keep in touch for class reunions and other events.  Its a good way to connect people that don’t really want to get on Facebook.

Please leave comments if you like – I moderate the messages and won’t publish if you don’t want me too.

Here’s some pictures from the last reunion – one of our last chances to chat with Cheryl Oftedahl-Keehn before her sudden death on August 19th, 2015.

  1. Hi. My name is Deb (Wheeler) Dornack and I was in your 1980 class in Spring Valley until we moved to La Crescent in 1974. Rhonda House was my neighbor and best friend. I’m trying to connect with her if anyone has any information please send me an email. Thank you!

    • Hi Debra – Good to hear from you. I’ve been missing Rhonda too. I saw her once after graduation from High School and College sometime in 1984 but not since. I hope someone knows where she is. If I hear anything I’ll let you know. If you want to correspond I have a private email just let me know if you want me to send it to you. I hope all is going well with you.

    • Hi Deb! It has been many years but I just came across this site of Melissa’s and saw your post. My name is Mary (McGill) Moen and I have many wonderful childhood memories of you and Rhonda! I spoke with Rhonda two reunions ago hoping that she would be able to join us at the reunion. She is a principal with the Cuba City, Wi school system. Beyond that I do not have her contact info but am sure you could reach out to her via the school site. Her mom still lives in Spring Valley and I believe in the same house with son, Roger. I believe both her younger sisters live either in Spring Valley or Stewartville, MN. I hope you are able to reconnect with Rhonda! Would love to hear from you, as well! Wishing you only the best, Mary
