Back to School Fundraising Parties

The Fundraising Committee invites you to join us for an evening of good cheer to support The Back to School Fund. Mingle with other parents and supporters of the school over drinks and light fare, as we aim to raise $50,000 for programs and materials that will enrich our children's learning experience. 

We are holding four parties, each at a lovely home in downtown Jersey City, from 6:00-9:00pm on Saturday evenings this fall, so please select the evening that suits you best:

New School - New Location

The Ethical Community Charter School is delighted to announce that in fall 2009, the school opened its doors at 95 Broadway in Jersey City! The former home of Mt. Carmel School in the Marion section of JC, 95 Broadway is located by West Side Avenue, just west of Journal Square. The building, constructed in 1954, is in excellent, nearly move-in condition and boasts a full size gymnasium, with a proscenium stage at one end and a recently installed projection system. The building has twelve large, sunny classrooms, as well as ample office space. The basement level has a sizable cafeteria and a full kitchen. In short, it is a wonderful facility with many desirable amenities.
