Eastwick College's job-focused majors are a natural choice for many of our students. Check out their High School Shared Time program. It could be an option for your at-risk or classified students. Contact Caroline Paskas for more information or to schedule a visit: ( 201-494-5012)

If you were unable to do so at the meeting, please donate a gift card from a grocery store, Target, Walgreens, CVS or any other major retailer to help these Bergen County students who lost their homes in the recent apartment fire.
