I hope your visit brings back pleasant memories of your years at:

Beaumont, Texas

The purpose of this web site is to serve as a centralized information resource.
Here you will find old friends, catch up on what's new about class reunions, activities
and help to keep us informed of what you've been doing since leaving FHS.

I want to pledge honor to
French High School
'neath the pines so green and cool,
Where my heart is yearning,
for the place of learning
And the school I love so well.
I want to keep its banners flying
Over standards so high and true,
and be proud of the Orange and White,
For it's

Onward to victory French High
We're here to see you through!
Voices and spirits rising
You know that we're for you!
French High School keep on fighting
Keep fighting never sway!
Orange! White! Buffs! Fight!
We're for you all the way!
Yeaaaa Orange! Yeaaaa White!
Yeaaa Buffs, fight, fight, fight!
Orange, White, Buffs, Fight!
We're for you all the way!

    We went to French eager for new experiences. - We wanted to be a part,
    to be with friends, and have a good time.
    We did those things through many activities.
    We paraded in the streets - We built bonfires - We decorated the halls
    We cheered at pep rallies - We went to the games
    We danced - We cheered - We cried
    And we experienced life....

    At this time, these are the only yearbooks I have.
    If you would like to see your senior year scanned,
    and on the website, please email me
    Scanning the year books does not...harm the books.
    So if I could borrow yours, that would be awesome! :-)

    Friends and family please sign the guestbook.

    You were a big part of our past!
    The FHS website is a place where other
    Beaumont Alumni could say hi and
    where parents can be apart of FHS again too!
    I encourage all visitors to sign this guestbook!
    ( even FHS alumni) just to say hi again!
