Photos From Valley Road School

CLARK – Students at Valley Road School in Clark have been learning about Halloween Safety and the role of community helpers, combining art and writing skills, and investigating the mysterious disappearance of an early English colony.


At Valley Road Elementary in Clark, Miss Kelly Williamson’s fifth graders and Mrs. Nicole Reagan’s second graders studied Halloween safety tips. The two classes collaborated on a project to design Halloween Safety posters to display throughout the school. In the picture above, Brooke Hilton (left) and Ricky Sabarese (right) share their Halloween safety poster.


Students in Miss Emma’s second grade class in Valley Road School in Clark are learning about community helpers, such as police officers, firefighters, teachers, doctors, and nurses, and the role they play in each community. The students have explored various community helpers, relating it to their hometown. In an effort to compile a list of community helpers, the students have created a Community Helper Booklet in which they draw and label community helpers and write a sentence explaining each community helper’s role in the community. In this photo, from left to right, Ava DeMarco and Tania Oliveira show their Community Helper Booklets.


The students in Bryan Lowe’s fifth grade class at Valley Road School engaged in a cross-curricular writing and art activity. Students drew portraits of their classmates and wrote positive, descriptive sentences beneath. Pictured (bottom left) Zachary Katz begins his sketching of Sophia Rodrigues after writing about her great enthusiastic attitude in class. Another student (Zeke Tosun) poses for his portrait.


At Valley Road Elementary School in Clark, Kelly Williamson’s fifth grade class investigated the mystery of Roanoke, an English colony in what is now North Carolina that was lost in the late 16th Century. Williamson read the students a book about Roanoke that explained five possible theories of what may have happened. The students then worked with partners to decide which theory they believed was the best explanation. In this picture, Alyssa Grandal (left) and Andrew Popp (right) are working together to use the clues to decipher what really happened to the Roanoke Colony.
