Dear Friends,

We are excited to celebrate the Reece School at our annual benefit on Friday, May 29, 2020 and support the growth of our school through our annual raffle, online auction, and live eventIn order for all of this to be a success, we need your help!

The Parents Association’s fundraising season is in full swing as we raise much needed funds to help sustain and add to the programs at Reece. Please consider donating a gift certificate or goods or services to this important effort.

Here’s a little bit about our school…

Founded by Ellen S. Reece in 1948, the Reece School is one of the oldest non-profit private special education elementary schools located in and serving New York City school districts. Reece currently provides a nurturing, therapeutic educational environment for 130 children grades K-8 grades who have emotional, social, behavioral, sensory, and learning challenges. The mission of Reece is to develop each child’s academic and social skills, self-esteem, abilities, talents, accomplishments, and a love of learning to ensure their success in the greater community and future educational settings.

Funding from the New York City Department of Education for the Reece School only helps to provide the basics of education for our students. The Reece School’s goal is to make sure all students have the opportunity to take their education to the next level and benefit from therapeutic, eye-opening, and character-building enrichment activities that they will carry with them into their future.

We are raising funds to ensure all students attend these on-site and off-site programs: 

  • Professional Development and workshop/conferences for faculty
  • Class field trips around NYC
  • Science/garden program supplemental summer resources
  • Reece Middle School organizational planners to help students with their executive functioning and organizational skills
  • Welcome BBQ in September and Graduation/Moving on ceremony in June for all families

… and we want to help support so much more! We really hope you will consider donating to our school’s auction and raffle to help us provide funding for these important programs.

Please feel free to download the form below to send in your donation by Friday,     April 17th  or you can contact us to make other arrangements. Do not hesitate to email Erika at if you have any questions.

We look forward to hearing from you!

With appreciation,
