In honor of breast cancer awareness month in October, our Wildcat football team is asking fans to wear pink and help them Rumble for a Cure at their last home game of the season, Friday, October 14. To help support this important cause, we will also “go pink” at every school in the district on Thursday, October 13 (since we do not have school that Friday). If you are interested in placing an order, please click the following link or ask your school for the order form: Rumble for a Cure order form. Proceeds from the merchandise sale will go to the Licking County Health Department’s Screening and Survivor Support for Breast Cancer.

After-School programs across Ohio could lose funding in the future. No new 21st Century Grants will be awarded for next year as of right now. Please read this story from the Columbus Dispatch about the issue. At Newark City Schools, we have After School programs (funded through these grants) at six of our schools, serving 280 students and their families. Our Wilson and Heritage Middle School grants expire this year, and will not be able to be renewed. Our elementary programs (Carson, Ben Franklin, McGuffey and Cherry Valley) have one more year in their grants, but will expire after the 2017-18 school year. These programs help students with life skills, and give them a safe place to stay after school. They get homework help, learn some basic cooking skills and participate in many other activities. If you would like to help by contacting legislators and the Ohio Department of Education, please click here for more information.

Newark City Schools will offer student lunches for no charge for the remainder of the first semester. The data upload issue that caused the district to offer no-cost meals during the first two weeks of school has been fixed. However, after evaluating the first two weeks of school, district officials determined that it can offer student lunches for no charge through December 16.
Lunch menus for the 2022-23 school year are now available. Please click the below links to find the menus:Elementary SchoolsMiddle SchoolsNewark High School
