While the school does not currently have a waiting list for its incoming freshman class, Adams said, "We do not have room to take many more. If in August, we have one extra student, we could take them, but it we have 10 extra stu- dents, we can't." He addd, "Down the road, we may be looking at capping class size." The projected larger classes do not appear to be a "one or two year aberra- tion. It seems like the numbers we are looking at should re- main consistent." Adams said an earlier mar- keting campaign has had a positive effect on student en- rollment numbers. "It let peo- ple know we were an alterna- tive." The school has also focused on "working to keep students once they they are here." Adams is hopeful that an en- rollment policy will "find a way so we don't have to turn kids away, that we can remain open to anyone who wants their child to receive a Catholic Christian education." He added, "It's exciting as a faculty that people have confi- dence and faith in what we are doing." Searching for Rex Mundi students The Rex Mundi High School Reunion Committee is searching for all students who attended the'school, to invite them to an all-class reunion June 18. All Rex Mundi Students are invited, including those who graduated and also those who were freshmen, sophomores or juniors when the school was closed in 1972. Invitations have been mailed to the last-known addresses of all Rex Mundi graduates, but the committee does not have addresses for many students who transferred to other schools be- fore graduation. Reunion activities will include a Mass at Holy Redeemer Church on Friday, June 17, a tour of IVY Tech -- the former Rex Mundi High School m on the afternoon of Saturday, June 18, and a dinner and dance at the Green Convention Center the evening of Saturday, June 18. In an effort to contact more people, the reservation deadline for the reunion has been ex- tended until June 1. If you attended Rex Mundi High School, and have not yet been contacted about the all-class reunion, please contact Glenda Ossenberg at (812) 424-5536: Or write to Rex Mundi Alumni, 3205 Autumnwood Way, Evansville IN 47715.
