An Alumni Website

St. Norbert's Alumni Group

This web site is lovingly sponsored by the St. Norbert's Alumni Group comprised of the contributors of content seen on these pages. Its mission is to promote the fond recollection of those bucolic (or bulimic) days in the classrooms, halls and grounds of this institution.

Inclusion to this special group of friends and grads is attained simply by donating pictures, recollections . . . basically any memorabilia of the kind that already grace this site.

Congratulations to Chris (Bielak) Lamar for her charter membership. She was the individual that submitted the first group of pictures becoming the inspiration that launched this web site. She was followed by others since that historic final day of August, 2001, when the St. Norberts Web Site was given life. And the Patron Saint of St. Norbert's class pictures is Sharon (Totzke) Gawthrop, who submitted the largest collection so far of grade school classes, including such surprises as "the Cheerleaders" (who remembers St. Norberts having cheerleaders?!), the Service Squad, the Safety Patrol, and some faculty photos. Thank you Sharon! May you inspire many, many more to scour their minds and closets for mementos and photos of this honorable past. And most recently heaps of appreciation for Kathy Foley Schemers who delivered to our door a ton of things, like Senior Class pictures, that now grace these hallowed halls. Check 'em out!

Please be assured we would love to expand this list by at least at few dozen. Even more! Send what you can and watch the SNAG grow! Send anything in electronic format to And if you have things that need scanning, email us for the street address.
