  • School Update from the Superintendent

    Friday, July 10, 2020
    Good afternoon,
    Hope your summer is going well. As you are most likely aware, Governor Murphy and the Department of Education, on June 26, released guidelines regarding the physical reopening of schools in September. We, as a school district, in conjunction with input from such groups as our Parent Teacher Associations (PTAs) and Faculty Councils, are in the process of developing a plan and policies for this reopening. This process will continue over the next few weeks with the goal of communicating the plan to our various stakeholders during the first week of August. In the meantime, please email with any input that you might want to share regarding our reopening.
    Your patience and understanding, as always, are greatly appreciated. Enjoy the weekend ahead.

Third Grade Students Celebrate the Lunar New Year with presentation by Panda Express in Clark!


Students in third grade at Valley Road School celebrated the Lunar New Year with a presentation by Panda Express in Clark.  They were introduced to the history of Chinese New Year, including the story that explains the animals of the zodiac.  The third graders also learned about traditional and modern practices associated with the holiday, including red envelopes and the symbolism of certain foods.  Panda Express gave each student a bookmark and  a "chork" (a combination of chopsticks and a fork).  This program provided the students with a deeper understanding of this important Asian celebration

Balance Scales

Students in Mrs. Petela’s class worked with mini pumpkins donated to the class by Lila Stebbins and her grandma. The students made predictions about weight as well used weights to balance their pumpkins on actual balance scales.


Kindergarten Applefest

Valley Road School Kindergarten students hosted Applefest; a holiday community service tradition that has been celebrated for many years at the school. 

This event encourages the entire school to get involved in the spirit of giving. The Kindergarten classes each bring in an apple – themed craft item and trade them to older students in grades 1-5.  The craft item is exchanged for cans or boxes of food. All of the food collected from the Kindergarten children was donated to our local town food bank where many families will be able to enjoy a full Thanksgiving dinner. This tradition brings joy to all of the children involved while creating a nice family project where parents and families are involved together. The students donated over 700 food items to deserving families!
