NORTH CALDWELL, NJ - The North Caldwell Partnership for Education (NCPE) is pleased to announce their annual fundraising gala, "Moon Over Manhattan Supper Club and Silent Auction". This elegant event will be held on Friday, March 14, in the Ballroom at University Hall at Montclair State University. The proceeds will go toward security updates at Grandview and Gould schools. The NCPE hopes to have 300 attendees and raise $40,000 through this event.

Due to budget limitations within the school district, the NCPE works closely with the administration and the North Caldwell Board of Education (NCBOE) to help fund technology and capital improvements in Grandview and Gould schools. Following the tragedy at Sandy Hook, the NCBOE hired security experts to assess security within the schools and provide enhanced security recommendations.The District has received grants to help subsidize these costs, however, the total costs for the recommended upgrades are significant.
