    Kaitlyn Chee '23 Publishes Cookbook, Donates Proceeds

    While sheltering in place, Newark Academy freshman Kaitlyn Chee published her first cookbook, "Easy Eatings—The Book for Kids Whose Parents Don't Cook," which was recently released! All profits will be donated to the charity, "Save the Children", which is providing food to children amidst the COVID-19 outbreak. The book is available on Amazon here.
    “Each chapter is based around a country and is compiled of simple recipes, as well as stories of my travels around the world,” Kaitlyn said. “Due to the current pandemic, many of us have had more time on our hands and have brought up a new hobby of cooking.” NA’s Ethan Chee ’20, Kaitlyn's brother, took the cover photos, while Silvy Zhou ’21 created the beautiful cover design.

    Newark Academy Hosts MLK Day of Service

    While classes were canceled on Monday in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, more than 100 members of the Newark Academy community participated in Newark Academy's annual MLK Day of Service on January 20 for a "day on" rather than a "day off." The event took place from 8:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. beginning with an educational program at Newark Academy followed by service opportunities on campus and a service/education trip to Newark in keeping with this year’s community service theme aimed at reconnecting to the school’s roots in Newark.

    Prior to participating in various service projects, volunteers heard from keynote speaker Aisha Glover and engaged in an educational program to honor Martin Luther King’s influence on our country, with special emphasis on his call to be an upstander and take action, big or small, to make a positive difference.
