THIS IS the official Walter Johnson H.S. Class of 1969 website. 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. The WJ Class of 1969 also has a supplemental Facebook page. Please feel free to join it as well.

50-Year Reunion 

Our 50-Year Reunion took place over the weekend of October 18-19, 2019, with activities at Tommy Joe's in Bethesda, Glen Echo Park, and the Main Event at the Bethesda "Pooks Hill" Marriott. There were also Elementary School gatherings for classmates from Alta Vista and Larchmont. One Hundred Eighty-Seven (187) people registered for the Main Event, including 141 WJ classmates and 4 teachers. Almost all were able to attend. It was a memorable milestone weekend with lots of reminiscing, reconnecting, and old-fashioned fun! Friendships were renewed and new ones made.

A special thanks to all who participated, including those who donated funds to keep the website going. A huge shout-out goes to members of the Reunion Committee who worked tirelessly to make the Reunion the huge success that it was. Thanks as well to the organizers of the elementary school gatherings.

Photos of the Reunion can be found by logging-in and clicking on the 50-Year Reunion Photo link on the sidebar. We encourage Classmates and Guests on the website to upload their good photos from the Reunion Weekend to galleries on that page.
