Grade School Reunions

Welcome to the Grade School Reunion page on the ETHS Class of 1970 Website

We have rescheduled our Class of 1970 Reunion for the weekend of September 9 - 12, 2021.  We will update this Grade School Reunion page to reflect changes as we are told about new plans.  Please keep us informed!

There are some in the class who want to roll the calendar back ever further than our High School years.  They see the years before we started at ETHS containing memories that are worth revisiting while taking advantage of the Reunion weekend as a time when many classmates from out of town will be in the Evanston area.

This page lists the grade school reunions that are being discussed as of June, 2020.  If you want to plan a tour of your grade school, the District 65 Administration office will likely put you in touch with the person most closely associated with your school so you can work out the details. Be aware the District 65 offices are currently closed with a re-open date unknown at this time.  

If you decide you want to plan a reunion of any sort (meet and greet or tour of the school), feel free to send an email to Joel Stevens at  By listing your reunion event here, you get the benefit of reaching all of our website members.
