Walter Johnson High School
Class of 1969
Welcome to the official Walter Johnson H.S. Class of 1969 website. The website served as Reunion Central for the hugely successful 40 Year Reunion that was held on the weekend of October 17, 2009. It continues to serve as a place where classmates can reconnect, stay in touch, and share both memories and new experiences. In a small way, it also documents our time at WJ, and in junior high and elementary school, in Bethesda, Maryland.
Launched in late December, 2008, 356 (58%) classmates already have joined this free and non-commercial site. And, the Class of 1969 Spartan Community keeps growing. Please help us locate others and encourage those who have not yet joined to do so. People have clearly enjoyed reading the profiles, viewing the current photos, using the internal email system, and the memories that the website content bring back.
Over 260 people attended the 40th Reunion, including 200 classmates. A 40th Reunion Page has been added to the website with photos from the great weekend. Plus, there are some "new" class photos taken at the Reunion on the Elementary School Page.
The website will remain active until the next reunion in 5 years and we hope to improve it with even more new features. There may be an informal "mini-reunion" in the not too distant future - so stay tuned!
If you haven't already joined the website, please do so. All you need to do is click on your name on the classmate profile list (on the left sidebar), and update your contact and profile information (it can be as brief or detailed as you want). Also, please be sure to adjust your email settings, if necessary to ensure that communications from the website are not treated as spam. All personal information will be password protected and none of the information will be used for commercial purposes.
A word about the music on the site - To listen to the music while you navigate around the website, there is a music player at the bottom of this Home Page with a Pop-Out feature that allows you to listen to the tunes while you navigate around the website. To do that, you will need to first click on the Pop-Out Player button at the bottom of this page. A new window with a player will pop out. Hit the "play" button and minimize the window. Or, if you use tabs, click on the Class website tab. That should put you back on the home page and from there you can go on to other pages on the site from the sidebar. You can also scroll down the playlist or use the shuffle control on the player. If you don't want to listen to the music on a particular page, just put the music player on pause and go the page you want.
Enjoy the Website!
