HOW TO SEND A PRIVATE MESSAGE:  Even if you don't know another classmate's email address or phone number, you can send them a Private Message that is NOT shared with other classmates and is NOT posted on our Class Website.  Just sign in to our khs1967.org website, click on "Classmate Profiles" in the black horizontal Menu bar, then click on the name of the classmate you want to contact.  Below their photos but above their birthday and other profile information, click the "Send (Name) a private message" link.  Fill in the Subject of your message, such as: "Message from (Your Name)", and type your private message, then click the blue "Send Private Message" box.  If you want to share your own email address or phone number, you'll need to include it in your Private Message.
