    On May 22 Mrs. Warfield’s and Mrs. Faranda's students created a Living Wax Museum at Valley View. Students worked diligently over the last few weeks to research and explore the lives and important contributions to society of Steven Spielberg, Elvis Presley, Derek Jeter, Albert Einstein, Dr. Seuss, Walt Disney, Bill Gates, Abe Lincoln, Houdini, and Martin Brodure. Students dressed up as their persons and created a Google Slide presentation, individual videos and a museum exhibit that included “personal artifacts” to teach their peers, parents and younger students about these relevant Americans.

    Working together the specialists (Art, Music, Media, Physical Education) created a unit of study on Impressionism. This demonstrated to the students a comprehensive study of Impressionism from different areas of study.  The students engaged in many different activities to learn about Impressionism.  Above, you can see artwork completed by the third grader's in Physical Education class where the children had relay races drawing Van Gogh's The Starry Night.

    In mid-May, the students in Mrs. Caravello and Ms. Streep's 4th grade class just concluded a science unit about outer space by celebrating the arrival of aliens to Earth! The students researched a planet and then created an alien that could adapt to that planet. They made Interplanetary Space Commission passport posters which displayed information about the alien and their home planet. On our alien day, we held a museum walk, where the students recorded information that they learned about each other's planets.

  • Police Dear Parents and Guardians,  You may have noticed that recently a police officer has been in front of our building greeting the children.  Do not be alarmed…nothing is wrong.  This practice is part of the Montville Township Police Department’s Community Relations.  The goal is to have our students see officers as reliable adults they can feel comfortable with and reach out to when needed.  They are currently rotating to each of our schools.  We are happy to have members of the Police Department on campus.  Thank you and have a great day.  Dr. Patricia Kennedy, Principal

    Nick Liao is the President of the Montville Township High School Earth Club. The junior is also a Valley View Elementary School alumni.  On Wednesday, April 22, Liao and ten other members of the MTHS Earth Club came to Valley View to celebrate Earth Day. The eleven high school students have been working all year to create an interactive, educational, event to teach elementary students about conservation.  “The club has been mostly about service,” Liao said of the MTHS Earth Club. He explained that the club’s members often clean-up parks or help with Adopt-A-Road type events.  But in October, a bigger idea came to Liao.  “I wanted to implement creative ways for others to be involved,” Liao added.  So on Earth Day, the MTHS Earth Club launched a hands-on Earth Day conservation program for sixty-two Valley View fifth graders.  Thank you to the Earth Club members, Mr. Danilack (Valley View 5th grade teacher), and Mr. Rolfe (High School Earth Club supervisor) for making Earth Day at Valley View very special.

  • Great Job A note from Mr. Spector....The final dollar amount is in for this year's Math-a-thon and it has been another outstanding effort. This year $9,842 was collected for the St. Jude Research Hospital.  A sincere debt of gratitude to all participating children and families. Our goal of $5,000 was easily reached, but the fundraiser is about more than a dollar amount. Children were passionate about becoming involved and making a difference. Several children volunteered their "prize" back to the hospital. Those that did, did on their own volition. It is a remarkable example of compassion and empathy. If your child did the Math-a-thon and didn't receive recognition please call the school or email me at keith.spector@montville.net  Once again, thank you so much for helping out in this collective battle to eliminate childhood cancers. I'm already planning next year's kick-off assembly with great anticipation.
