CLARK — High school cheerleaders collected clothing and stuffed animals for the Salvation Army this weekend, while fifth graders are learning math and chemistry concepts.
On Saturday, Sept. 21, the Arthur L. Johnson High School varsity cheerleaders hosted a clothing drive to benefit the Salvation Army. The Clark-based cheerleading team collected new and used clothing, stuffed animals, and other soft goods to donate. Starting in the morning and continuing throughout the day, the 39-member cheerleading team took one hour shifts to help collect the donated goods. Head coach, Lindsey Lerner, and assistant coaches, Cristina Faro and Suzanne Hamilton, are incredibly proud of all the volunteering their cheerleaders have put forth in the spirit of helping others.

In Kelly Williamson’s fifth grade class at Valley Road Elementary School in Clark, students are studying place value in order to prepare for learning more difficult multiplication. To review place value, the students participated in an activity using expanded notation. Each student got a piece of the paper candy corn that either had the number in word form, expanded notation, or standard notation. The students walked around the room and tried to find the peers who had the same number as them in another form. Once the students found their two matches, they placed the candy corn together. The students shared their candy corns with the class. In the photograph above, students (from left) Thano Kofos and Madison Pardo display the candy corn that they put together.

Students in Bryan Lowe’s fifth grade class at Valley Road School in Clark created a life size model of the element Beryllium in order to better understand atoms. Students held positive signs representing protons, negative signs representing electrons and neutral signs for neutrons while arranged in an elemental structure. Other classmates then commented on characteristics of elements, using these students as a visual model. In the photograph above, students pose for their picture as atomic particles while Lowe holds the chemical symbol for Beryllium. (Photo courtesy of Clark Public Schools)
