Dear Classreport users:
We are one of the premiere social networking websites dating back to 2003.
We are a small, family owned and operated business with less than 15 staff but freely host over a
million class websites. Classreport holds a special place in the hearts of our users:
We are funded solely through your voluntary contributions. Despite our small size we have the same
costs as any other site: servers, security, software, and staff. So now we ask for your support.
If everyone reading this gave $15, our fundraiser would be over in one day. If Classreport is useful
to you, take one minute to keep it online and ad-free for another year. Thank you.

70th Birthday Bash pictures are viewable...!
The slide show program wouldn't let me place all pictures into one album, therefore I had to split them into two presentations; Album 1 above and Album 2 below.
Click anywhere within the picture frame or text. Once in, click on "Slideshow" to advance pictures after 4 second delay. You can change the speed by clicking the down arrow and selecting the speed you want.
To get back to our website home page, click the "back arrow" several times until you're in.
6/8/2013 A message from Lynn Pollard Stevens on turning 70. Yikes...!
Now, it's 2013, and I've turned 70 !!! For a low-key celebration, my two "kids" took me on a 3-day cruise out of Long Beach. We kayaked off Catalina Island and rode horses in Ensenada, Mexi
. . .
After graduation from WHS I went to Northern Arizona University where I received my BS in Business Adminsistration and Economics. I spent two years in the Army in Fairbanks Alaska as an air radar controller and instructor in the Army Education Center. After the Army I moved to Chicago and received both my MS in Education and Doctorate of Education from Northern Illinois University.
My work life consisted of 32 years as teacher and school administrator at Oak Park and River Forest High School (Oak Park, IL), Adjunct Professor of Education at DePaul University (Chicago), and author of three textbooks, Consumer Economics, Consumers in the Economy and Mathematics of Money, published by South Western Publishing Co. In addition I conducted professional development workshops in 32 states, Japan and Europe.
In my personal life, I married in 1971 to my wife Elizabeth. We have one daughter Joy and now three beautiful grandchildren, Luke (4), David Hayden (2), and Lily (1). My wife and I peacefully separated after my retirement in 2000. We remain good friends. Also after retirement, I studied Spanish (again) for three years and have served as a spanish translator for Medical Missions International, a short term medical projects in Chile, Paraguay, Peru, Costa Rica and Mexico.
As for hobbies and interests, I have travelled to more than 90 countries, and in my spare time I have invested in real estate in the Chicago area, renovated the former pleasure palace (our current home in Batavia) of Big Bill Thompson, the assassinated mayor of Chicago( 1928), converted the Bellview Place (asylum and residence of Mary Todd Lincoln) into a 30 unit townhouse development and most recently renovated my home in Costa Rica into spanish style hacienda.
