CLARK – Students in Jennifer Clere’s Class at Valley Road School in Clark enjoyed Apple Day recently. The children read a chapter book about Johnny Appleseed and at the conclusion of the story, the children sampled many different apple foods provided by their families. They learned how Johnny Appleseed helped apple trees to spread throughout the country. He was also helpful to new settlers. They also learned the curious fact that Mr. Appleseed at times wore a metal pot on his head.
