CLARK, NJ – Valley Road School held their virtual promotion ceremony on Tuesday.   Principal Joseph Beltramba kicked off the event with a message of hope and strength and reminded students to keep their eyes on the future.   A future, he said, that would be so bright they have to wear shades, as he slipped on a pair of sunglasses.

The event included a drop in appearance by Superintendent Ed Grande, various awards, a look at each graduate and messages from staff and faculty. 

Grande sent his congratulations to students, parents and staff again later in the day in his daily broadcast to the district and then added, “we are certainly looking forward to the great things that lie ahead for these incoming sixth-graders at CHK.”
The ceremony is available to view here.
