  • Resources in regards to recent shooting:

    Dear Parents and Guardians, 
    We are posting information and attachments below from Maureen Brogan, the coordinator of the Statewide Traumatic Loss Coalition of New Jersey. We hope you find this helpful in dealing with the recent traumatic events in Las Vegas.
    Joe Beltramba
    Message From Maureen Brogan:

    Many of you, myself included woke up to a beautiful crisp autumn like morning, a morning that just makes you feel good to be alive.  You may have turned on the news to check to see if this weather would continue.  It is at this point, you may have heard of the shooting last night where a gunman took the lives of 50 people and injured at least 200, apparently the most deadly shooting in US history. On Sunday, October 1st, a gunman opened fire on concert goers at the Route 91 Country Music Festival on the Las Vegas Strip according to CNN news. 

     Attached please find resources on how to talk to children and some resources for trusted adults. The Traumatic Loss Coalition  websites also include information which may be helpful but keys things to remember are:

    • Start to Conversation  (ask your child what they have heard )
    • Make sure you have accurate information
    • Encourage children to ask questions from a trusted adult
    • Limit media exposure
    • Be a positive role model

    Thank you for being the helpers in this world.  Thank you for helping to support or young people in these challenging times.

    Be well,


    Maureen A. Brogan, LPC, DRCC

    Statewide Traumatic Loss Coalition Coordinator

American Legion’s NJ Educator of the Year


Mr. Beltramba, Principal of Valley Road School,  was recently recognized as the American Legion’s NJ Educator of the Year.  Mr. Beltramba was nominated by the American Legion’s local post.  According to the American Legion, the award is given to educators based on their “leadership and participation in promoting American Legion Americanism programs, civic responsibility, flag etiquette, and patriotism. Accomplishments of the educator must be over and above their assigned duties.”    Mr. Beltramba stated, “I am honored to be recognized by those that we honor. As with most awards, this would not be possible without all that the staff and students do to celebrate our veterans. So, I thank Valley Road students and staff for making our school and our town a special place for our veterans.”   The award is designed to “increase the awareness of dedication and work that educators do in supporting the American Legion programs.

Designing Courses with Optibots


Mrs. Petela's class had a blast designing courses for little Optibots. They are mini robots with optical biosensors. The class was told the types of lines that the bots preferred and they were off and running. They worked in groups and designed their own tracks and tested them over and over again making many adjustments along the way. Jake Richards stated, “It was so cool making mistakes and then fixing them to make it work”.  An aha moment! Mrs. Petela told them that is what scientists do all the time!

Muscles and Metals

 Valley Road School’s third annual Muscles and Metals event was a huge success. Clark Police Department, Fire Department and Rescue Squad all volunteered their time to give students a peek at the vehicles that protect and serve their community. Students were treated to face painting, Kona Ice and a run on the Ninja Warrior Course.  A great time was had by all.
