Learning Community Charter School

Learning Community Charter School
Community Outreach
LCCS recognizes that intellectual development goes hand-in-hand with emotional, social and moral development.  Because of this, a social curriculum is employed which utilizes the educator as role model and classroom as moral community. Students are taught to uphold our school's CIRCLE values: Community, Independence,Respect, Courage, Leadership, and Effort. We support each student in the development of personal responsibility, empathy, self-confidence, self-esteem, cooperation, honesty, perseverance, consideration for others, and respect for the environment--all necessary for real world success. 
Each grade engages in various community service opportunities that align with their units of study.  For example, Kindergarten students host a lemonade stand to raise money for the endangered pandas while fifth grade students lead a local voter registration drive.
Once a year, LCCS also hosts a school-wide penny drive to raise money and awareness for a charitable organization.  In 2006, LCCS students raised money to benefit Roots of Peace, an international organization that aims to remove land mines from war-torn regions, return land to agriculture, and build playgrounds for children.  In 2007, they raised money for The Sharing Place, a local food bank serving Jersey City families, and collected donations of baby supplies for The Hudson Cradle, a local organization that takes care of infants in need.
Eighth grade students participate in community service internships, volunteering their time with local organizations such as the Liberty Science Center, the Jersey City medical center, City Hall, Garden Preschool, Waterfront Montessori, the River School, the Jersey City Public Library, and the Hamilton Park Health Care Center.
