The Purpose of This Website

This site was created to connect and re-connect with our classmates (even those who will not be attending the reunions and events we will host). Our goal is to make this website a scrapbook of memories for all classmates and a way to communicate upcoming events.

Our website is FREE to join! Our website is private! 

Everything you need to know about setting up a profile to gain access to the rest of our website is on this page.

If you have questions, please click on the CONTACT US link.



Privacy Notice

All contact information (address, phone number, e-mail address) that you enter into this website will be kept confidential. The host of this website is They understand the importance of your privacy. Your personal information will never be sold to other sites. It will not be shared or distributed.

Your contact information is private - Your street address, email address, and phone number cannot be seen by classmates. Each classmate has the ability to limit the visibility of his or her profile to only fellow classmates by clicking on the appropriate answer in the Profile Visibility section during profile setup. If you do not opt for privacy on this line your profile can be viewed by non members such as your friends or family, but also note your profile will be fully indexable by major search engines.

Google or other major search engines:

  • If you are signed into this website and have restricted your profile to only fellow classmates, and then use a search engine to see if the privacy options above are working, it will appear they are NOT. This is only because you are signed into the site. Sign out and check again. You will see that none of your profile information is viewable by non-members.

Private messaging within this site - You can private message (PM) any classmate by using the contact option at the top of each classmate's profile page (just look under the classmate's main photo in the upper left). This way you will be able to contact classmates through the internal messaging function without sharing your private email address, unless you choose to do so.

All class e-mail news sent from us to you via this website - For those of you with spam blocking or email filtering capabilities, please add AND to your email account "contacts" as a safe sender to ensure you receive email communications from us.



Setting Up Your Profile

To access the pages that are password protected on this site, you must join this FREE websie. You will setup a profile by providing your home address, a phone number, email address and a password.

To set up your profile: locate the MISSING CLASSMATES link and locate your name and click on it. Follow the prompts to create your profile.

Private information like your email address, home address, and phone numbers will not be visible to fellow classmates. We collect mailing addresses in the event that we need to contact you by snail mail or phone.

We encourage you to add a current picture to your profile as a master photo. It's also helpful to upload an additional "Now" photo, and a "Then" photo. Classmates will enjoy seeing how you've changed!

If your name is not listed on the CLASSMATE PROFILES webpage, but you were part of the John Marshall High School Class of 1970, click on CONTACT US with an identifying message and your name will be added.

Updates: If you change your email address, snail mail address, or phone number, please update your Contact Info so we have up-to-date information. That way you'll always be in the know about what your classmates are up to! 

Choosing A Password - Passwords do not need to be the high security style like those recommended on some websites. Choose a password that you will remember. Clicking the "Remember Me" will allow you to bypass entering the password each time you visit, but eventually the "Remember Me" function will fail (for instance when you get a new computer). Please make note of your password!

If you forget your password simply click on "Forgot Password?". If you have several email accounts, and you don't remember the one you used to setup your account, click on the Contact Us link. You will receive a response as soon as possible, so please be patient.



Missing Classmates

The wonderful part about this website is that the format came pre-setup by Class Creator. The site generates a Missing Classmates list for us, based solely on the names of people who have not yet joined and, therefore, don't have profiles. So, until you have a profile, the site will consider you a "Missing Classmate".

Also, please note: We need your help to contact EVERY classmate. If you have information about any classmate, listed or not listed, please click on the Contact Us link.



Communication With Classmates

To contact a fellow classmate, you may simply use the private messaging option at the top left of each Classmate's Profile page (located under Master Photo). This feature will allow open communication between classmates, while protecting your personal information. If you wish to share your email address or other personal information within a private message or post on your profile page, the site will not block you from doing so.



Adding Photos To Your Profile

Adding current photos is not a requirement to participate on the site, but it certainly is a nice way to get to know people again. We've had reports of classmates who were routinely running into each other without knowing it, because...well....we've all changed a little over the years! :)

Filling in the photo slots at the top of your Profile:

  • Click "Edit Profile" under MEMBER FUNCTIONS.
  • Roll your cursor over the Master Photo, Then, Now, or Yearbook photo silhouette (note you cannot upload a yearbook photo if one has already been provided)
  • Click "Select Photo" displayed in the upper right corner of photo, then click the "Upload a New Photo" button.
  • Select the desired photo from your hard drive. You will then be given an opportunity to crop the photo for a perfect fit.

Adding large "Profile Gallery Images" to your Profile:

  • Click "Edit Profile" under MEMBER FUNCTIONS.
  • Click the photo tab in the upper right corner of your Profile.
  • You will see any images previously uploaded here. Click the "Upload a New Photo" button to add more.
  • Click to select images you wish to display on your Profile. All images with a green check mark will display. Click again to not display, and the green check mark will disappear.
  • To add a caption under your images, roll over any image and select "Edit Details". Enter your caption and press Save.
  • You can adjust the display order of your photos by simply dragging and dropping them into the positions of your choosing.
