Van DerVeer started World Read Aloud Day (WRAD) today by welcoming Rebecca Gardyn Levington for a virtual author visit! She read her book "Whatever Tomorrow Brings" and then answered some questions about her life as an author.
Thank you Patti Helwig for 25 year of service
A big thank you to the @SomervilleNJPTO for organizing a celebration of Dr. MLK Jr. Day of Service. VDV students designed placemats and wrote letters while SMS packaged personal hygiene items. Everything was donated to S.H.I.P. (Samaritan Homeless Interim Program).
VDV students are spreading kindness. The OT students are creating kindness clips to spread a message of kindness. They are secretly clipping them on a peer's backpack, jacket, paper, folder etc. to help share some random kindness around the school.
How are you feeling going into the weekend? (Seen at VDV) #allin4theville
