[Newark, NJ – May 13, 2016] – Newark Public Schools (NPS) is displaying student artwork in the main lobby of its Central Office headquarters as the city celebrates its 350th anniversary this month. The displays are a result of assignments students were given over the winter and spring breaks to share birthday wishes to the City of Newark or personalized videos detailing what they love most about their hometown. The district received hundreds of submissions from thousands of students.

“I am truly proud and inspired by the incredible artwork our students created to honor and celebrate the City of Newark’s 350th anniversary,” said Superintendent Christopher D. Cerf of NPS. “This is a special moment for our community and we are honored to join the larger Newark community in commemorating this important milestone. Our students’ artwork not only reflects Newark’s rich and storied history, but the bright future we believe is in store for our great city.”

Newark Celebration (NC) 350 is a year-long celebration of unique events and festivities commemorating the 350th anniversary of the city of Newark’s founding. NC 350 was the vision of the late Dr. Clement A. Price, a leading historian of the City of Newark, who worked tirelessly to ensure that citizens were able to understand the important story of Newark.
