Valley View’s Mock Trial club was recently notified that it had won an award in this year's statewide contest. The club creates and writes an original trial based on legal issues that interest the group. The completed trial is sent to the New Jersey State Bar Foundation’s Law Fair contest; a contest designed to generate interest in legal careers. Our club received the Honorable Mention award for our trial, The Case of the Downed Drone. The club will travel to New Brunswick in May to perform the trial at the New Jersey State Bar Foundation’s Headquarters. We are so proud of the hard work of these students!
On Friday, March 17, Award winning composer Brent Daniels returned to Valley View to perform his Music Technology Assembly. He uses a digital sampling keyboard, high energy music, and audience participation. Brent stresses to the students the importance of education, study habits and positive decision making are for success in life and any career. Thank you once again to our wonderful PTA for sponsoring this event.
Congratuations to our very own Mr. Kamara Johnson, who became an American citizen in March. We are so proud of you!
Please watch our video (above) about Valley View's involvement with St. Jude Children's Medical Research Center. Valley View is very proud to have such a powerful relationship with this organization. Over the years, Valley View has raised over $122,000 for this wonderful cause. We hope you enjoy the presentation by our 5th graders.
March 2 was Read Across America Day. Valley View students literally had their heads in their books! At 2PM, the entire student body sat in the hallways of the school and read for 15 minutes.
The second graders (pictured above) had a blast celebrating the 102nd Day of school!
