Welcome to the ETHS Class of 1970 Website Home Page

REUNION UPDATE: Just a reminder that our Reunion has been rescheduled to the weekend of September 3rd, 2022.

The next Reunion Committee meeting will be held on Monday, September 13th, at 7:00pm CST.  However, that does not mean that the Committee isn't going to be busy over the next few months! 

Several of the grade schools have had virtual mini-reunions. We know that Oakton, Lincolnwood, and Dawes have met up on Zoom, and it was so much fun that they have had (or are planning) follow-up meetings.  Timber Ridge, Walker, and College Hill are joining forces for a meeting soon, as is Willard.  We will update the website and help spread the word.

Since this has been a lot of fun, we are working on plans to expand the experience to include activity groups from high school.  YAMO? Cheerleaders? Soccer? Aquettes? Would you like to attend a virtual gathering and relive some of the memories of our high school days?  More details will be sent out about this in the near future.  Don't worry - it's virtual!  No one expects you to repeat those physically demanding moves, although there might be some singing involved!

Which brings us to another possible way to reconnect with your classmates!  We know that we can't all meet up in Evanston this year, but if anyone is inclined to organize a smaller in-person get together in your area, we can help get the word out.  Let us know the time, date and location, and we can send out an email blast.  There is a link on the right "Where We Live" that might help you find some local classmates.

Finally, speaking of email blasts, we will be continuing to send our Musical Countdown emails on the first Sunday of the month for now.  Consider it a gentle reminder to check into our website, maybe see who has filled out or updated their profile, and see what other exciting things your Renunion Committee has been up to!


This is our official class website. It is the way that we communicate our plans to you, our classmates. There is information in other places on social media, but we update this site to reflect the most current information.

If you haven't checked out the tabs on the left of this page, please do. There is a great deal of information included there. Want to buy a hat? Hear the ETHS Fight Song? Learn more about your classmates? RSVP for the Reunion?  It's all there, and more!

Please look over the list of Missing Classmates and see if you can encourage your friends to join us and fill out their profile.  After that, take a look at the profiles of people that have already signed up, and reach out to some of your high school friends and leave them a message.  During these difficult times, it's good to be connected!

The Grade School Reunion/History tab has been updated.  There is a link to an article from The Evanston Round Table, "A History of Foster School and Desegregation in School District 65". The article is from 2002, but seems relevant today. It examines the ways District 65 changed throughout the 60's and 70's, during and just after our years there.  There is also information about the mini-reunions that are being planned. Oakton, Dawes, Willard and Lincolnwood Schools are planning Zoom gatherings.

The FUN! Committee is continuing to count down the June 1970 hits that will take you right up to Reunion Weekend.  But wait, there's more! Roger Badesch has created a Countdown Video Playlist where you can see and hear what you were singing and dancing to your senior year at ETHS.  Click the Musical Countdown tab on the left and you'll find the YouTube link.  (That is SO cool!)
