Lauren Beiermeister, Valley View Alumna and member of Girl Scouts Troop 80080 of Northern New Jersey, recently completed the fourth level of Girl Scouts that included earning her Silver Award. To earn a Silver Award, a scout must make a contribution to better her local community. Lauren decided to promote patriotism by painting recycled pallets as American flags and asking local schools, VFWs and American Legions if they would be interested in having one to display. We are so flattered that Lauren offered to create one for Valley View! This beautiful flag pallet graces the front of our school reminding our students to respect their flag and country. Congratulations Lauren on your achievements and for giving us such a beautiful reminder of what it means to care so much about your community and country!
The students at Valley View were treated to a wonderful assembly about the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on January 20, 2017.
