CLARK, NJ – The Clark Board of Education held a “Showcase of Success” to highlight student and teacher achievements at its meeting held Tuesday night in the Arthur L. Johnson High School auditorium.

Students who achieved perfect scaled scores of 300 on sections of the 2014 NJASK test were recognized by the board. Valley Road Elementary School principal Joe Beltramba, Frank K. Hehnly Elementary School principal Shirley Bergin and Carl H. Kumpf Middle School principal Jennifer Feeley made the presentations to over 100 district students for their exceptional performance on the test, primarily in the fields of mathematics and science. Click for a list of honorees.

Feeley made a special mention of two students, Erika Fabrizzio and Erin Heaning, for their achievement of a perfect score on the NJASK-7 Language Arts portion of the test.  This accomplishment, she said, was particularly difficult to achieve. A single eighth-grader, Leah Cherukara, scored a perfect score on the NJASK-8 Science assessment.

ALJ principal Richard Delmonaco called up Christopher Demaio and Thomas Jobson.  The two high-school students scored a perfect 300 on the New Jersey Biology Competency Test.

“These results are a true testament not only to the children themselves, obviously, but to you as parents, our teachers, our administrators and our whole school community that puts all the good work in to making sure we get the results that we do,” Interim Superintendent of Schools Edward Grande said.

The evening highlight was a performance of “The Wizard of Clark” by Kumpf students Jessica King (Dorothy), Erika Fabrizzio (Tin Man), Hannah Vargas (Scarecrow) and Gabby Smith (Lion).  Kumpf teachers Nicole Drasin and Cheryl Fabrizzio had developed the witty, Kumpf-centric adaptation of “The Wizard of Oz” for presentation at the Schools to Watch recognition luncheon held at Kean University last year.

Also recognized was Kumpf’s Sixth Grade “Team of Excellence.”  Led by Christine Casale-Broski and Krista Chapman, the team of sixth grade teachers had recently been recognized at the New Jersey Association of Middle Level Educators conference for their creative and collaborative work. 

Casale-Broski was also recognized for being named the New Jersey “Middle Level Educator of the Year.”
