CLARK — Sophomores at Arthur Johnson High School learned about New Jersey’s Graduated Driver License program this week, while Valley Road School students raised money for Clark’s volunteer Emergency Squad and third graders at Hehnly School dove into reading.
Students in Laura Bundy’s third period Driver’s Education class at Arthur L Johnson High School in Clark just learned about the Graduated Driver’s License program, which is designed to reduce the number of driving fatalities among teen and first-time divers and their passengers. The three step route grants a permit at age 16 to those who obtain a parent or guardian’s signature, pass vision and written tests, drive supervised and pass the road test. The next step is the Probationary License at age 17. The last step is the Basic License at age 18. In the picture above from right to left, are sophomores Greg Van Natten and Julia Kaplun.
Students at Valley Road School in Clark recently participated in a “Hats On Day” to honor the Clark Volunteer Emergency Squad. Students wore hats to school and had the opportunity to donate one dollar to the squad. Mrs. Haney and Mrs. Lombardi, Valley Road teachers, organized the drive, which has become an annual event. Erin Coyle, a former Valley Road student and current EMT with the Clark squad, accepted the check.

Students in Christine Cemelli’s third grade class at Frank K. Hehnly School in Clark dive into books during silent reading. The students are rewarded for great behavior with opportunities for free reading. The students can choose to read either with partners or independently in a comfortable spot anywhere in the classroom. Cemelli states, “The students love to free read and look forward to it every day. Being rewarded with reading makes students view reading as a true treat!” Picture above are Camille Cortazzo, Rylie Weber, and Jessica Sot.
At Valley Road Elementary in Clark, Kelly Williamson’s fifth grade class is studying homophones. The students read a book titled Dear Deer that explained the definition of homophones and gave examples of them. Then the students had to create their own posters. In the picture above, (from left) Emmalie Pikula, Miah Faustino, Matthew Kleczynski, and Haley Knorowski work together to create a poster about homophones.
