Citizens of the Month, April 2015
Every month, Newark City Schools honors about 28 students from grades 4 through 12 in every school as our Citizens of the Month.

This month, Hillview Elementary second grade students performed their spring musical, "Arf!" Thank you to Newark Lions for sponsoring this month's lunch. Congratulations to the April 2015 Citizens of the Month. You can find a Facebook photo gallery at this link.
