New teachers to the Clark Public School District enjoyed a tour of the town’s historic sites and other points of interest at the beginning of their employment. The tour was the vision of Ken Davidson, a retired Valley Road School teacher, Township Historian and Council Member Brian Toal and Principal Joseph Beltramba of Valley Road School.  

“The tour is a wonderful opportunity for the new teachers to learn about the supportive community they have joined.  Additionally, it shows the teachers where they can find resources to enhance the educational experience of their students,” said Beltramba.

Stops on the tour included the Township Library, Clark Municipal Building, Town Recreation Center, Robinson Plantation and other areas of the town.
