January 2017 Citizens of the Month
Every month, Newark City Schools honors about 28 students from grades 4 through 12 in every school as our Citizens of the Month. Students are chosen for what they do both inside and outside of the classroom.

Also every month, a different group from one of our schools performs for students and their families. This month, the Ben Franklin Elementary Chorale performed for the families. Thank you to the Newark Kiwanis Club for sponsoring this month's lunch. Congratulations to the January 2017 Citizens of the Month. Find a Facebook photo gallery of the afternoon here.
