  • 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!

Educators of the Year

   

Valley Road School is filled with amazing educators!  Congratulations to Mr. Brian Lowe and Ms. Nicole Arpino for receiving the Governor’s Educator of the Year Award! We are so lucky to have such exceptional school professionals in our building.

VRS Second Graders Become Engineers

  

Students in Mrs. Pinto’s second grade class became engineers last week through STEAM challenges. Each morning Mrs. Pinto’s students are given an engineering challenge that is
themed to the month. Through February’s theme of being “kindness superheroes”, students used index cards to create model bridges for animals to safely cross highways and other
dangerous areas. They could use as many index cards as they wanted but were given no other supplies. Through teamwork and experimentation, each group was able to safely cross their animals and their superhero cut outs. This activity allowed students to learn about the impact of humans on the environment as well as weight and balance.

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.
