Wichita Southeast High School Principal Lori Doyle and staff are inviting you back to your stomping grounds on Saturday, March 5th 2016! As most may be aware, this is the final year students and staff will be in the original Southeast building. But, fear not, proud Buffaloes, we want to celebrate the great students, teachers, staff members, and administrators who’ve roamed these halls. 

Built in 1957, Southeast is one of the oldest schools in Wichita. Almost 60-years of memories and legacies lie within these school walls from your old science room to the gym. As your present staff, we want to relive those moments and carry those traditions on because as we know, a buffalo may wander on its own, but eventually a buffalo rejoins it herd. 

Southeast is hosting a 5k+ run and open house to allow alumni, current and former staff, district employees, and community members an opportunity to roam the halls one last time on Saturday, March 5.

The Open House will be from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. The 5k+ and Fun Run is to celebrate the life of Coach Carl Taylor, who passed away in January 2015. The Fun Run will begin at 8 a.m. and the 5k+ will begin at 9 a.m. Each hallway in the school will reflect a different decade the school has been around, from the 1950’s to present, and be decorated with pictures, trophies and uniforms. There will be food, photo booth, family games and opportunities for friends to gather and share memories. 

For more information, to register for the run, to volunteer and/or share memories, visit: www.southeast5k.com.

Be sure to check up on the website up until the time of the race and festival. We will display the foods, activities, and items that can be purchased from all organizations at Southeast High School. 

From Southeast High School to all alumni, we want to say THANK YOU! We are so proud to be called Golden Buffaloes and hold true in syaing we are the best of the best because of the traditions you started and we continue. We look forward to meeting all alumni, hearing stories, and enjoying a day of celebration.
