What's New

Since the website is getting fairly large, we thought it would be a good idea to note the changes in a central location, hence, this page. Check here for new or changed material. Note that we will not be adding an entry here when either the Guestbook or Announcements page is updated.

  • Today marks the end of Portage Jr. High (Elementary) School. The final tour was held this evening. However, Tom Scott has taken tons of excellent photographs and posted 80+ on the I Went to Portage Junior High (Barberton, Ohio) page on Facebook. If you're interested, nostalgic, or just curious, check it out. https://www.facebook.com/groups/354442117615/ (Copy and paste the url.)

  • Thanks to Linda Boettin-Fritz, we've been able to finally get a complete list of student's names for Mrs. Anderson's and Mrs. McMillan's classes (in Elementary/Oakdale). Anyone else out there with an old class pic with names? Please let us know.

  • There are a couple of additions to the Veterans page (in Class of 1964) that you might find interesting.

December 26, 2011
  • On the Jr. High Class picture pages, I've added a list of names of the students with the row and column in which their picture appears. This should make it easier for someone searching for a particular person.

December 21, 2011
  • I replaced the Jr. High School Class photos with larger versions. If anyone has an original of the Highland photo in fairly good condition, please contact us, as we can scan it and I'll use it instead. Also, if anyone wants a copy of one of these files to have printed, let us know and we'll send it to you. The versions on the site do not look that great when printed.

    If you have any snapshots from your Junior High days, please contact us and we'll put them up too!

  • We've added another new link (Oldies Television) to the Fun Stuff page which takes you to a site with numerous old TV shows and video clips of early rock and roll groups.
