Grade School Reunions/History

Welcome to the Grade School Reunion/History page.

Did you ever wonder what happened to your school after you left? In 2002, The Evanston Round Table included a detailed look back on what was going on in District 65 in the 60's and 70's. Click HERE to read the article.

Now is a chance for you and your elementary school classmates to revisit your grade school history! Several groups are planning events that will take place while many of our classmates will be in the Evanston area for the Reunion.

Contact the District 65 Administration Office or the school to arrange a tour. If you decide you want to plan a reunion of any sort (meet and greet, ZOOM gathering, or a 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.
