The second graders (pictured above) had a blast celebrating the 102nd Day of school!
On Friday, February 3rd, award winning performer David Jack came to Valley View to present the assembly BOT-The Secret World of Robots. Both the students and teachers enjoyed this high energy assembly which covered topics such as: What is a Robot? How robots are used by police, military, and NASA and Drones and how they impact our world.
On Wednesday, February 1st students celebrated Tablecloth Kindness! Valley View's 4th Grade Leadership Team came up with an idea to bring a little positive cheer while eating lunch. Students walked into the lunchroom to find their table covered with colored paper, table decorations, and a bin full of crayons and colored pencils. They were asked to either write or draw a friendly expression/message or picture directed at the next group coming in for lunch. The response was overwhelmingly positive.
Please enjoy a video from our 5th graders which teaches respect, tolerance and understanding of all cultures during the holiday season. The video above is called, Holidays Around the World.
Lauren Beiermeister, Valley View Alumna and member of Girl Scouts Troop 80080 of Northern New Jersey, recently completed the fourth level of Girl Scouts that included earning her Silver Award. To earn a Silver Award, a scout must make a contribution to better her local community. Lauren decided to promote patriotism by painting recycled pallets as American flags and asking local schools, VFWs and American Legions if they would be interested in having one to display. We are so flattered that Lauren offered to create one for Valley View! This beautiful flag pallet graces the front of our school reminding our students to respect their flag and country. Congratulations Lauren on your achievements and for giving us such a beautiful reminder of what it means to care so much about your community and country!
The students at Valley View were treated to a wonderful assembly about the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on January 20, 2017. Mr. Charles Murray came to the school with an amazing and meaningful presentation. Thank you Mr. Murray and our PTA for providing this educational opportunity to our students. Note: We are trying out Teachertube instead of Youtube for some of our videos. Some videos may take longer to go live....
The Valley View Winter concert was a big hit. The students and parents were treated to a wonderful show with singing and instruments. Thank you to Mrs. Wilczynski, Mrs. Scharf, and Mr. Ketay for doing such a wonderful job! The picture above is the 5th grade chorus performing.
