10 Year Reunion E-vite:

Hey folks-

Believe it or not, it's been 10 years since you graduated high school. In an effort to take the edge off of the relief (or shock) this realization may bring, the Class of 1996 Stuy Reunion Committee has worked hard to organize an evening full of celebration, nostalgia and alcohol. Featuring:

• A variety of passed hors d’oeuvres
• 3 hours of open bar (including some top shelf drinks)
• Raffle prizes for early attendees
• Select school memorabilia for purchase
• Pre-event visit to the school*
• Music/song requests

This evite is an informal way to get a headcount of the people who plan to attend. You should have received the office invitation in the mail. You must send in your payment for the event in order to be officially registered.

OR you can register online NOW by clicking on the following link:

*The Stuy96 Reunion Committee would also like to invite everyone to drop by and visit our beloved Stuyvesant HS at 345 Chambers Street:

Date: Saturday, 11/25/06
Time: Before the reunion, 3pm-7pm.
Setting: Informal, Walk Through on your own with an ID sticker to be supplied by the Reunion Committee.

The Community Center at Stuyvesant HS has generously allowed the Committee to host a table at the front door where you can pick up Stuy Reunion ID stickers during the specified time. Please be advised that we are being given permission by the Battery Park City Conservancy to visit the school and their security will be in attendance.

The Class of 1996 Reunion Committee looks forward to seeing everyone and their guests at the event! Please forward this evite to other members of the Class of 1996 who may not be included in this guestlist or simply send their email addresses to and they will added to the guestlist.


This is the most recent list from of paid Class of '96 paid alumni for the 10 Year Reunion. Please click on the Invite link to pay for the event if you haven't already done so.  Thanks!

66% of the respondants believe it should have an open bar with extras and finger foods.

Following the cost issue which will be closely watched had 42% of the responders saying $60 could be livable price, but we'll do our best to figure something there or lower.

Check out the details here:

The Committee expects to put take the final numbers by early January to help create a plan during the Spring 2006. Weigh in your thoughts as soon as you can. Our Stuy96 Reunion Committee is currently brainstorming ideas and wanted to learn how we can make next year’s event fun and unforgettable. We’d greatly appreciate if you could take time to fill out this brief survey in the link if you have yet to do it:





Yes, some of the data are required fields. All of it would be helpful for both short term and long term planning though! Just imagine, a nice celebration for the 345 Chambers St.'s 10th Brithday in the Fall!

The following is a link to the Stuy Spectator article written by sophomore Jenny Lin about our reunion. Thanks Jenny!

Stuy96 5th Year Reunion Pictures


Hey everyone,

Hope everyone is doing well! We hope you all continued to party on after the awesome reunion on Saturday at the South St. Seaport, Pier 17. We bet you all still can't believe that our 5th Year Reunion is over. You can all review the pictures and action on our class website as taken by the student photographer:


or click on the main picture above

We want to thank each and every one of you who showed up and helped make it a special night. We hope that you all got a chance to share stories with old friends about what you've been up to the past few years. We're glad that around 225+ (we're still doing the math :)...) of you came from far as California, New Orleans, even Wyoming and as close as we'll say Staten Island. Together we all made memories and helped for the greater cause of charity. We currently have helped raise thousands of dollars for a scholarship for a Stuyvesant senior who had lost a father in the World Trade Center and is now without parentless. We hope that this is a start for a new beginning for the student and for all future alumni.

It has been a long year of planning and figuring out how to celebrate our five long years after Stuyvesant, but we all made this gathering a fun reality. If you have any comments please post them on the message board located just to the left of the main picture on or e-mail us at

And we hope to possibly do it again soon, since we're almost positive we didn't hear everyone's story. Thanks again for all your support and look for another reunion in the near future (any suggestions?) and of course a grand celebration in 2004 celebrating Stuyvesant's 100th Birthday! Stay tuned for the Stuy Spectator article and an updated details about our reunion in the next e-mail.

If there are any lingering issues please e-mail us at or call us at (212) 894-3748 x9916
and if you have any news to bring up please
post them on the same message board as mentioned above:

Greetings everyone,

We bet you all can't believe that time has dwindled down to almost a month until our scheduled reunion! We thank you for all of your patience regarding the planning of our 5th Year Celebration. The Reunion Committee is continuing to work hard to find a new location with new criteria after being displaced from the World Financial Center.

We apologize that we have not gotten back to every e-mail and/ or phone call received. It's been hard to keep track of it all working between the Alumni Association and our regular daily jobs, as most of you can understand. We can tell you a couple of new notes that we do know about the reunion based on several of your suggestions over the past few months. The reunion will be held Saturday night, November 24, 2001 as opposed to the original Friday date of 11/23. Also, the price of this reunion will cost less due to the fact there is so little time to relocate and to recover costs from the previous planning. For those of you that have already paid, (you can check the the website at: for the most recent guest list that was received about a week ago.) we will return the cost difference, either at the reunion or at a later date. So continue to stay tuned via e-mail or website and save the date in November! We hope to choose a location by early next week. We will try to send an e-mail and a new postcard out. We greatly appreciate your support and understanding.

Please feel free to post your comments on the website:

Thanks again! Good Luck and Be Well!
