CLARK, NJ - In honor of President’s Day, students at Valley Road School in Clark celebrated the lives of presidents and their contributions to the United States. Technology teacher Ms. Czarnecki, engaged the class in a discussion about the leadership qualities of a good president.
Students learned about the many skills one needs to lead the people of the United States. Additionally, students took virtual tours of the inside and outside of the White House. The lesson culminated in grades K - 5 classes completing “If I Were President…” projects. The focus of the assignment was to share the first thing they would do as president, the characteristics needed, the best and worst part of the job, as well as a law they would enact.
“The students’ responses were thoughtful and meaningful. They focused on making the world a better place through kindness and respect for one another. I’m really proud of the work they did and the thoughts they shared,” said Czarnecki.
