CLARK — Students in Clark Public Schools worked on a variety of projects this week. First and third graders at Hehnly School made “Pinwheels for Peace,” while Valley Road kindergartners learned about the letter “M” and Kumpf seventh graders were studying the idea of theme. ALJ students have been playing speedball in their physical education classes.
Students in Ms. Guarino’s third grade class and Mrs. Freidman’s first grade class at Frank K. Hehnly Elementary School in Clark teamed up to promote peace in our community. They were asked to draw and write their personal meaning of peace on a pinwheel for the International Day of Peace on Sept. 21. The entire school’s pinwheels will be placed outside to give the community a visual statement of the hope for a kinder world.

Students in Jackie Grigoli’s kindergarten class at Valley Road School in Clark learned about the letter M this week. To bring this lesson to life, students made life size representations of themselves out of paper. They then MARCHED around the school. This was dubbed the “March with Me” to celebrate the letter M.

Suzanne Hamilton’s 7th grade classes at Carl H. Kumpf Middle School in Clark have been learning about the idea of theme. After taking some notes and holding a class discussion about theme, the students were broken up into “theme groups.” Each group was assigned a Disney movie and they were required to make a running list of themes that might apply to that movie. Pictured above, Cailee Kirk, Natalie Ferreira, Allyson Renda, Julian Faustino, and Hannah Brogan work together to make a graffiti wall of different themes for movies such as Finding Nemo, Monsters Inc., and The Lion King.

In Mr. Bain’s fourth period class physical education class at Arthur L. Johnson High School in Clark, students learned to play speedball. They compete in teams of five, playing for five minutes at a time and the action never stops. The students still have one week let of speedball before moving onto another intense activity, ultimate frisbee.
