The East Harlem School hosts a series of events each year to raise vital funds and to foster the culture that is core to the School's mission and curriculum.
The East Harlem School's Fall Benefit is an inspirational evening that features a silent and live auction, cocktails and dinner, and wonderful performances by our talented students. The evening, emceed by selected 7th and 8th graders, raises critical funds and is essential for the School's survival.
On November 17th, 2016, The East Harlem School honored Julia & Rusty Shepard with the Exodus House Award. The event was emceed by our very own 8th graders and featured student performances throughout the evening. The night was a huge success in both its vibrant programming and the support it generated for the School. The 2016 benefit had the most successful live auction in EHS history! We are grateful to all our friends and supporters who celebrated with us, and we hope to see you again next fall.
Spring Poetry Slam
