    Students in Mrs. Handschuch’s Preschool PM Class recently utilized their problem solving and critical thinking skills to participate in a team STEM challenge to construct a spider web. After listening to the story of The Very Busy Spider by Eric Carle, teams were provided with various unconventional materials to construct their spider webs. Teams used iPads to view and research different spider webs. Students collaborated with peers on design and construction challenges . The children also presented and discussed their projects to the class.

    October marks the season for the Energy Hog at Valley View.  The Energy Hog is a dastardly, energy-wasting villain that student superheroes work to defeat throughout the school year. The Energy Hog Assembly introduces the Hog, and provides a fun and memorable way to engage the whole school in energy efficiency. Our very own Mr. Spector became a Hog Buster for the assembly, and taught the students how they can save energy and bust Energy Hogs.

    Thanks to our wonderful PTA, the children were treated to an amazing assembly on October 13 called Hip Hop Now with DJ Reggie.  The message of the show supported the schools character education and bullying policies.  The kids had a great time dancing in the gym while learning an important message.

    Miss Profeta’s class dicussed fire safety during the week of October 11th.  Miss Profeta invited a local fireman into her classroom to talk more about Fire Safety and how firemen stay safe. Miss Profeta, Mrs. Golini and Mrs. Warfield’s classes came together to talk with the fireman. The students asked him very important and interesting questions. The students absolutely loved it! The fireman allowed the students to try on his jacket and look at his gear up close. The students made him thank you cards as well! They had so much fun!

  • Congratulations to our 5th graders for participating in the Exercise US program on September 28. The concept behind the Exercise US program is to motivate children to become physically fit and healthy by making fitness fun. Children will enjoy the concept of participating in 10 continuous hours of fitness from coast to coast. Schools or organizations that sign up will partake in 15 minutes of exercise at their location. When their 15 minute time allotment is over, they have completed their portion of the program. At that moment, in a new location, the next exercise session will begin, which could potentially be in a different state. The program will begin at 8:00 a.m. eastern time, and finish at 3:00 p.m. pacific time.  Valley View was honored to have Dr. Rovtar come to the school and exercise along with the children.  The program was organized by Mr. Saunders, our PE Teacher.  Great job kids!

  • Important Dear Parents and Guardians....We just concluded a very successful planned A.L.I.C.E. (Alert- Lockdown-Inform -Counter-Evacuate) drill under the supervision of the Montville Township Police Department.  This is a drill that prepares the staff and students to respond during an emergency in the event that an intruder gains access to the building.  As you may know our teachers, students, and parents (at PTA meetings) received training and information given to us by the Police Department.  Teachers also reviewed procedures with the children this week in anticipation of this planned A. L. I. C. E. drill.  Additional information regarding Crisis Management is located on our Home Page.  If you or your children have questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.  Our goal is to provide a safe and nurturing environment to our children.  Sincerely,  Dr. Patricia Kennedy, Principal

    Dear Parents and Guardians,  Despite the rain, Valley View students and families were off to a great start this morning!  Lots of smiling faces, huge hugs, and photo ops were observed as the children entered the building to meet their teachers.  It is a joy to have our students back to begin another exciting adventure in learning.  We thank our parents and guardians for all that you have done to prepare your youngsters for this important day.  A special thank you to the PTA Executive Board and PTA volunteers for assisting in escorting students to their classes.  Thank you also to Mrs. Susnosky for the beautiful welcome back banners; to Mrs. Handler and Mrs. O’Brien for updating the Valley View sign; to Mrs. Steciuk for the adorable Thelma Kramer showcase and Mr. Baum for touching up our “Panda Pride.”  Additionally, kudos to Mr. Spector, Mr. Saunders, and Dr. Frye for Valley View’s video initiative, “Embracing Diversity.” This program was recently recognized as a Promising Practice by  Character.org and noted on our beautiful Character Ed banner.  On behalf of the staff of Valley View, we wish you a fantastic 2017-2018!  Dr. Patricia Kennedy, Principal

    Last year, the Valley View specialist teachers worked with the 5th grade students on creating a character education book.  We decided to leave the book on our web site again this year for those of you who may not have read it. The name of the book is called MISS FOX AND I.....A contest was held in the 5th grade where they had to create a storyboard, and the winning story was then transformed into a book with the 5th grade Art Club creating all the illustrations.  It was a great experience for all the children involved.  We are proud to share with you our finished product.  Please enjoy Miss Fox and I by CLICKING HERE.
