Student play a reminder of how to treat others

What if normal was weird? That was the question asked by Valley View fifth graders during a recent school assembly.  Mr. Derksen’s class put on a fabulous play written by one of the parents and led by student teacher Brad Ingersoll.  The performers showed the entire school what it would feel like to be different, inspiring the kids to remember, “We’re all the same where it matters… on the inside.” 

Mr. Ingersoll stated that he was forced outside of his comfort zone for this project, yet felt the kids did an amazing job. School principal Bob Siegel spoke before and after the skit, reminding students of their social contract and requirement to treat others as they want to be treated themselves.  Overall it was a good reminder that it is our differences that make us special. Good job Mr. Derksen’s class.
