Dear Classreport Users: We are one of the premier social networking websites dating back to 2003. We are a small, family-owned and operated business with less than 15 staff, yet we freely host over a million class websites. Classreport holds a special place in the hearts of our users (See Bravos). We are funded solely through voluntary contributions. Despite our small size, we have the same costs as any other site: servers, security, software, and staff. So we are asking for your support. If everyone reading this gives $15, our fundraiser will 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 for your support. Click here to help out now.

Life and Times in 1958

After graduation from high school, life was tough when the average yearly income was just $5,087! But then when Dwight D. Eisenhower was President, a house cost only $18,640. Milk cost only 51 cents a half gallon, 10 lbs of potatoes cost 63 cents and 79 cents would bring home the bacon. Back then we could buy a loaf of bread at the grocery store for the 1958 price of 19 cents! Yes, those were the days when we listended to songs like "April Love" and "The Purple People Eater". And who could forget the enchanting melody of "Tom Dooley"? When we were glued to the television set, we watched "The Jack Benny Show", the most popular show in 1958. Remember that it was the New York Yankees over the Milwaukee Braves in the 1958 World Series?
