Have a great summer Valley View. Thank you to all our families for a wonderful school year. To all our exiting 5th graders, we wish you the best of luck next year in your new school. To all our incoming students next year, welcome to our community. Please enjoy our Summer video above!
In late June, the PowerSave Club gave a presentation to Dr. Kennedy about the research they did on Valley View's energy usage. This year they audited every classroom for lighting use, temperature level and appliance use. Based on their audits they made energy saving suggestions to Dr. Kennedy. Today the club members will share their presentation with the fourth-grade classes. Dr. Kennedy thought maybe the club should be on the website for their efforts to help make Valley View greener.

On May 17th The 2nd Annual Perennial Math Team Championships were hosted live across the US with the participants answering questions in game show style format virtually. With computer cameras and microphones, competitors could see other competitors around the country at the same time! The test format was game show style, where there was one question at a time for all teams and the team that answered correctly first got to pick the category next. Categories included computation, logic, algebra, ratio, and other topics. The Montville Team pictured above liked logic and ratios best. For each question, the first team to correctly answer a question got 5 points. All other teams to answer correctly got 4 points if they answered in the first minute after the question was posted, 2 points if they answered within 2 minutes and 1 point if they answered within 3 minutes. The Montville Team consisted of 5th graders Joshua Estrin (William Mason School), Curtis Wang (William Mason), Nicholas Ferrone (William Mason) and 5th grader, Scipio Han (Valley View) and 4th grader, Logan Fitzpatrick (Valley View). The Montville Team ranked first amongst 21 other teams! Congratulations to all!!!!
