Happy New Year!
Niwot class of 1979. Your reunion committee is putting together a reunion package like no other for our 40 year reunion in 2019. This reunion will be built on the best part of past reunions and and several new and innovative elements that I am sure you will love! It is so awesome that it will take the next three years to develop! We need to find all of our 79er classmates and have them check in to the niwot79.com web sight. More to come in the following weeks, so mark your calendars, sit back and plan for the party of party's!
This year will mark the 40th anniversary of the first class to attend all 4 years.
Niwot High School is situated about halfway between the cities of Boulder and Longmont in the small unincorporated town of Niwot. First opened in 1972, Niwot High School has been a part of the Niwot community for over 30 years.
The school's original construction was delayed, so for the first semester of the 1972–73 school year, students attended classes at the Longmont High School building after regular hours. Finally, on December 22, 1972, Niwot High was finished. The first class of students was given the honor to choose the schools colors, mascot, and motto. The colors were Kelly Green and Silver, the mascot was the Cougar (named "Carrie"), and the motto was "Our Pride is Our Life". There were no seniors in the first year, because the district did not want to remove current seniors from their home schools to finish their final year in a new school. Thus, the class of 1974 was the first graduating class, and the class of 1976 was the first to have been at Niwot for all three years. The football and baseball team won the conference championship their second year.
The school has had several additions since it was originally constructed; the new commons, auditorium, large gym, and a large portion of the lower wing were added after the school was originally built.
