    The students enjoyed another fantastic cultural arts assembly courtesy of the PTA!  On April 2, Brent Daniels visited Valley View to present the Music Technology Assembly.  Brent is an award-winning composer, producer, sound designer and recording artist who uses the latest in music technology to sculpt sound and create music. Using a digital sampling keyboard workstation, master-level musicianship, and a blend of audience participation, high energy music, information and humor, Brent created an exciting, one-of-a-kind performance that captured the imaginations of the students.  The assembly showed the students the important relationship between the technology they have in their classrooms and the creation of the music and sounds they hear on their iPods and on TV, in movies and video games.

    Some members of Valley View Sunshine decided to "paint their way to an early Spring" by participating in a night out at Pinot's Palette in Montclair. Teachers selected a painting they would all like to try and the consensus was that hydrangeas and watering cans would help all to think sunny thoughts as they shared their artistic abilities.

    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!

    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.
