Welcome to the Great Neck North/South High Class Of 1960 Web Site
MINI-REUNION - LOS ANGELES - OCTOBER 2017
Dear Classmates: March 29, 2017
A few of our classmates have expressed interest in having an off-year reunion in
Los Angeles the weekend of October 13-15. The initial thoughts are that there
would be a casual Friday night dinner, a Saturday beach picnic and an evening
dinner out. Our plan is to keep the costs down, the fun up, and ensure plenty of
quality visiting time.
Are you interested? We can’t move ahead until we hear from you to tally the
level of interest with a good preliminary headcount. So, please respond by
checking the appropriate boxes below.
YES…….. HOW MANY…….
MAYBE…….. HOW MANY?........
We’re asking that you respond quickly, no later than Friday, April 7.
Please send your response to NancyEllen5110@sbcglobal.net
Best to you all,
Host Committee in formation - Keith Fleer, Abbey (Schiff) Achs, Nan Bronstein
Lewis E. Love
Memorial Science Education Award
At its 50th Reunion, the Class of 1963 (North) announced its
intention to establish an award in memory of Lewis Love, whom many
class members consider to be the best teacher they ever had, as its
class gift to the Great Neck Public Schools. A small committee worked
to make the award a reality.
Through 2016, we raised ~$60,000 (~half of which was donated by our
Class of 1960 members) that will fund an Award of up to $10,000 annually,
for at least 6 years, for projects that will advance science education in the
Great Neck Public Schools. Any tenured teacher in the Great Neck Public
Schools will be eligible to apply for the award - s/he need not be a science
teacher. We wanted to establish a system for granting the award that will
continue beyond our personal abilities to manage it, so we have established
a rotating committee of teachers and students who will judge the applications
We continue to seek additional donations. With your help and the help of
the many other people who were touched by Mr. Love's magic in both the
North and South schools, we can extend the duration of the Love Award,
a meaningful tribute to an extraordinary teacher.
We are asking you to do two things: make a generous contribution to
the Lewis E. Love Memorial Science Education Award, and forward
this appeal and the donation form and FAQs to as many Great Neck
alumni as you can. (Click on "Love FAQs & Donation Form" on
the left hand side of this page).
You will see on the donation form that all donations must be made by
check to the Great Neck Public Schools and must be accompanied by the
form so that the School District can keep track of and send
acknowledgements to donors. As the check will be made out to the Great
Neck Public Schools, donations to the award are tax-deductible to the
extent of the law.If you have any questions that are not answered by
the attached form or FAQs, please feel free to contact any member of
the fundraising committee.
