    Mrs. Ford’s and Mrs. Grusczynski’s classes jointly participated in the NASCAR aerodynamics "3 Ds of Speed" Challenge, sponsored by Scholastic. Students made race cars and watched videos demonstrating principles of aerodynamics. “Pit crews" consisted of at least one student from each class. Teachers were impressed by their spirit of cooperation and creativity in designing their cars. Two sets of races were held to measure distance with and without drag components. It was as fun way to learn physics and to release stress from the PARCC testing!

  • test Dear Parents and Guardians, just a note to let you know that our first day of PARCC Testing went exceptionally well!  Our teachers were fully trained and our students were prepared and ready to login and demonstrate their understandings.  Each of our schools had a member or two from the Technology Department in house to handle any glitches.  Please know that we were delighted that there were only a few and these were easily remedied.  Today we completed Unit 1 of the Language Arts and will do Unit 2 on Thursday and Unit 3 on Friday.  Unit 1 of Math will be administered on Monday and Unit 2 on Tuesday.  Makeups will follow as needed.  Although this is a new endeavor and as with all new endeavors, caused some concerns and anxiety, our students seemed to enjoy the experience.  They are so digitally in tune!  We praised them for working so hard and noted that they met this challenge taking a giant step into their futures.  Thank you for giving them a good breakfast to fuel their efforts, getting them to school on time, and for sharing such terrific children with us.   Hugs, Dr. K

    The studetnts in Mrs. Caravello and Mrs. Streep's 4th grade class had an "OREO" publishing party in March to celebrate their completed opinion writing. We used the acronym OREO to teach this style of writing. This stands for Opinion-Reasons-Evidence/Examples-Opinion(again). The students enjoyed 6 different kinds of oreos while listening to each other's writing.

    This February , Brendan from Mad Science visited Valley View to present Spin, Pop, Boom! Spin, Pop, Boom is an introduction to chemistry and physics that presents a variety of principles including momentum, centripetal force and sound producing chemical reactions.

  • Media At Valley View School the students in grades Pre-K-2nd grade will be starting the annual Reading Incentive Program in Media with Mrs. Jemas. This year our theme is "Smile About Reading." Each child must read or have read to them any books they choose that are age appropriate and on their reading level. The students will record their books on a reading log and volunteers will stamp a small smiley face on a big smiley face on the classroom door for every book read. The class that has read the most books will win an ice cream party!! We are encouraging everyone to start "Smiling" about all those great books they are going to read. The contest starts February 2nd and ends March 1st. Thank you for encouraging our children to read!
