Help Send Our Teachers to Summer School!

Donate to the Reiss Fund today!
For over 50 years, the Reiss Fund has generously awarded scholarships to our teachers allowing them to further their studies over the summer in an area of interest, exploration or enrichment. The learning from these incredible experiences comes back to our children’s classrooms, enriching the learning that goes on and elevating the enthusiasm with which it is delivered.
Just this past summer, Holmes teachers Erin Brown attended Teacher’s College Institute to build stronger reading instruction skills and Kelly Soisson attended a six week program on mindfulness, learning techniques to help students manage stress, stay focused and develop positive states of mind.
A total of 17 teachers throughout the district took classes in sciences, the arts and music and literacy thanks to your generosity.
Our ability to offer this extraordinary scholarship program to our teachers sets our district apart in Fairfield County. Our ability to continue to support our teachers through Reiss Fund grants depends on you.
Please make a secure online donation today at, where you can also print out a mail-in a donation form to send in with your check.
Please join us in supporting the Reiss Fund.
