The ReesSpecht Life Program

The ReesSpecht Life Program is dedicated to cultivating kindness and teaching children (and adults) how important community, kindness and respect are. Their goal is to try to make the world a better place - one piece at a time.

The students were amazing---we were so proud of each and every student! Each and every student received a kindness card so that they can help spread kindness throughout our community and beyond!

Relay For Life Meeting 12/3/15 @ 7:30PM Schreiber HS Cafeteria 

This June will mark our 15th annual Relay For Life in Port Washington! In 2015, over 1,000 Port residents joined together to raise over $126,000. We are the number 1 fundraising Relay in Nassau County in 2015-a title we are very proud of!

Relay For Life is the signature event of the American Cancer Society that allows communities to celebrate cancer survivors, remember those we have lost, and fight back against this disease. It is a walk a thon in which people form teams to fundraise and join together to help create a day where there is less cancer and more birthdays.

We have a group of adults that plan many aspects of the Relay For Life. We meet once a month to review ideas and set plans. Each year we seek to invite new members who are interested in fighting back against cancer here in Port. We would like to invite any adults or community members interested in joining our planning committee or learning more about Relay to our General Interest Meeting on December 3rd at 7pm in the Cafeteria of the High School. We look forward to a nice evening to present Relay and the opportunities that we have to fight back against cancer together. We hope to see you there! For more information, please contact Megan Stewart at

We also hope you will save the date for our 2016 Relay For Life Kick Off taking place on January 13th (snow date January 14) at 7pm in the Cafeteria of the High School - All parents, families, students, community members, and business owners are invited! Thank you!
