Welcome Rosemary '58 Classmates

This web site is for all who attended Chevy Chase Elementary School at any time with the class that would graduate in June of 1958. The website was started in January of 2015 and has already helped to organize a reunion and produce a yearbook. Read on to see our goals.

If you were with our class at Rosemary during one or more of these years, this web site is for you: 

Kindergarten 1951-52,  First grade 1952-53,  Second grade 1953-54, Third grade 1954-55, Fourth grade 1955-56, Fifth grade 1956-57 or Sixth grade 1957-58.

Rosemary Midterm Election Contest Update 11/20/2018 

Here are the results to some of the questions in the contest, and the names of the classmates who predicted correctly:

  1. How many seats will the Republicans control in the U.S. House of Representatives A. 210 or fewer. (actual 200) Winners: Patricia D. G., Jim McC.
  2. How many seats will the Democrats control in the U.S. Senate? A. 48 or fewer (actual 47) Winner: Rich M.
  3. In the House of Representatives, California has the largest representation: 53 seats. Currently 39 are Democrats and 14 are Republicans. How will the California Democrats do in Congress in the midterms? They will: A. Pick up 3 or more seats. (Actual: They picked up 6) Winners: Diane C. W., Rich M., Jim McC.
  4. Republican Senator Ted Cruz is up for reelection in Texas. He is running against Democrat Beto O'Rourke, the representative for Texas's 16th congressional district. Who will win? A. Cruz Winner: No One
  5. Democratic Senator Bill Nelson is up for reelection in Florida. He is running against Republican Rick Scott, the current governor of Florida. Who will win? A. Scott Winner: Rich M.
  6. Turnout compared to other midterms. What percent of eligible voters will vote in the midterms? 1966 had the highest turnout in the last 100 years: 48.7%. See below for more recent years. A. 45% or higher (actual was 49.3% — the highest midterm percentage participation since 1914!) Winners: Diane C. W., Patricia D. G.
  7. Predict the winner of the race for Governor of Georgia. A. Kemp Winner: No One
  8. Finish this sentence. The most surprising thing about this election will be that:
    • Immigration will be less of an issue deciding how people vote than either health insurance or the economy.
    • No matter what happens if it’s bad it won’t be Trump’s fault, but if it’s good for the R’s he will take credit.
    • Somehow Trump will take political advantage of the results, whatever they may be, and take the wind out of the Democrats' sails.
    • The international attention a mid term is getting. Nations waiting to see how the American people are reacting to the current President.
    • It doesn’t really matter which party wins. Trump is still President.

Congratulations to all the winners and thanks to everyone who participated.

Rosemary students admire the plaque that explains our gift of two cherry blossom trees to the school. l-r: Hank P., Rich M., Bonnie M. K., Diane McC. P., Tim W. and Kristen O. R. All five hundred students joined us for the dedication of the trees, which are located between the main entrance and Rosemary circle.  

 

For more photos of the reunion click on Photo Gallery. Look for more photos in the coming days as classmates post them. Hopefully someone will post photos of the class and the trees. Hint, hint!

Ms. Flint's 4th grade class gave us a giant card filled with good wishes.

Latest numbers regarding our class (8/27/2018):

200 (approximately) students were ever in our class, for at least for one grade, K-6.

  • 180 of those 200 have been identified by name, sometimes by just a first name. We estimate that there are about 20 more classmates whose names we have not yet conjured up.  Some of the unidentified faces appear in the kindergarten and first grade photos in the yearbook and at the bottom of the page. Perhaps some of these faces belong to classmates who have already been identified. We don't know. Maybe you can help.
    • 29 of those 180 are known to be or presumed to be deceased
  • 151 are presumed to be living
    • 90 (60% of the known living classmates) are members of the website. In all, 92 have joined but 2 have since passed away.
    • 61 have yet to join. Of these
      • 31 classmates we have some information for, but
      • 30 classmates we have no information for whatsoever.
    • To see who those 61 are, please go to "More info on missing classmates"

 

 

 


ALL THE YEARBOOK PHOTOS IN ONE FILE

NEW 9/19/2016: Search for classmates in the yearbook. We have put the yearbook photos on the website as one PDF, which you can search just like any other PDF file.  This is on a page restricted to classmates only. See the new link at the left, just below "photo gallery" and look through all of the photos with identifications as they were as of publication time, September 2, 2015.  If you can make any corrections or additions, please find the class photo at the bottom of this home page to make your edits.  Guesses are welcome! If we get enough participation in this effort, we will update the yearbook photos with all the corrections.

Our Yearbook cover by Carden Holland. The framed original was presented to the school at our 2015 reunion.


 

2015 REUNION

Read the Story in Washington Post about our reunion. See all the reunion photos in "Photo Gallery"


GOALS:

  1. Find everyone who was ever in our class and encourage them to join the website. 100 classmates by June, 2018.
  2. Find out who has passed on and post memorial information about them.
  3. Identify by name every face in all our photos.
  4. Get Mrs. Phillips' class photo -- the one photo we still don't have.
  5. Have a social event in the DC area each year.
  6. Keep this website growing and active through September of 2018, after which we will have to renew the license with classcreator. If we want to keep it free of advertisements, it will be expensive. Otherwise, the charge is nominal.

Progress as of October 4, 2018

  1. We have contact information for more than 100 classmates. Of the 93 that have joined the website, three have since passed away. The 100 members goal was not reached by June of 2018  but it still remains a goal.  We have not welcomed a new classmate for about a year. 
  2. To date we have confirmed the passings of 29 classmates. See "In Memory." Please write a comment if you are moved to do so.
  3. We have made a single PDF of all the yearbook class photos, with the identifications at the time of publication. This file will allow you to search for any classmate and blow up the photos to a larger size to make identification easier.  Corrections and additions can be entered by clicking on the appropriate class toward the bottom of the home page. 
  4. Still no progress in getting Mrs. Phillips' class photo. Go to Mrs. Phillips' photo page below to see who we think was in her class. Someone out there has this photo! Now we're beginning to think that for some reason, this photo was not distributed to students and it wasn't retaken.
  5. We had a reunion attended by 27 classmates and 14 spouses in September of 2015. There was a mini-reunion on Feb 24 and 25, 2017 attended by 12 classmates and 5 spouses. We had a micro-reunion on April 10, 2016.  Many people continue to have small get togethers as a result of being reunited through the website and reunions. Classmates have found other connections through this website, such as learning that they have mutual friends or interests. We had a 60th anniversary reunion in September of 2018. For all the details see the special page devoted to it.
  6. The website will continue but starting in the second week of October, 2018, we will go back to having advertisements because we do not have the money to pay for the ad-free option.   

ALL THE LINKS TO THE YEARBOOK PHOTOS ARE ON THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE. Please find yourself in the photos and help us to make corrections and new identifications.



Did you know that:
  • You can post and read comments on the In Memory page?
  • You can post general comments on the Forum page?
  • We are still identifying classmates in the class photos and then posting corrections and additions to what was published in the yearbook? See the bottom of this page and the Revisions, Additions to Yearbook page.
  • You can send a message to any member on the website? "Send a private message to ___" It is not as quick as email but the message will be waiting for them in their message center.
  • There is useful information on the First Time Visitors page?


WE ARE STILL MAKING IDENTIFICATIONS IN THE PHOTOS.

PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AND HELP IF YOU CAN.



CLASS PHOTOS

YEARBOOK CORRECTIONS: If you believe you have found a mistake in identifying a classmate in the yearbook, or have a new identification to make, please share this information by clicking on the appropriate class at the bottom of this page and writing your comment. Want to see which pages have changes from what was printed? Go to Revisions, Additions to Yearbook

Note: These photos and identifications come straight from the yearbook, which went to press in early September of 2015. Please feel free to enter comments, additions or revisions so that we may get things right, even after publication.  There remain about 75 faces to identify, mainly from the early grades.

PLEASE READ THIS ABOUT EMAILS FROM Class Creator: "We do not publish a list of email addresses in the system. If [members] want to contact someone, they may do so via the Message Center. They can ask directly for the person's email address and if that person wants to share, they will. Otherwise, the email address is kept private. I would NOT have members publish their email address openly on pages of the site. They are opening themselves up to be added to spam mail lists. That should be kept private." -- Scott Mastenbrook, Class Creator
