Hello dear friends, family, colleagues and acquaintances. We have created this fundraiser to raise money to send Foss to an amazing school in Manhattan called Standing Tall (ST).

We believe that ST provides an ideal learning environment for Foss that is heads and shoulders above any of the other schools for children with multiple disabilities in the NYC area. At ST, Foss would be accompanied to school every day by Vicki, his beloved and trusted teacher's assistant and babysitter.

The highly trained, dedicated staff at ST work intimately with families to develop an individualized plan to ensure that each student is challenged, understood, safe, and engaged in the learning process.

We need to pay the first year's tuition and seek reimbursement (through a legal process) from the Dept of Ed. Our fundraiser includes the tuition amount and the anticipated legal fees. Once we secure that reimbursement, we would use it for the following year's tuition, get reimbursed again, and so on. As such, our appeal to you happens only once.

Please help our family to become a part of the ST community. If you're interested in learning more about the school, please visit http://www.standingtall.org/services.html

Thank you!!! Molly, Larry, Henry and Foss
