Steel Valley SADD would like to congratulate Benjamin Novotny, Chelsea Bulger, Brenna Kern, Veronica Brocato, Joe Nguyen, and Breanne Francis. These 6 students have been chosen to be this year's 2022 NJM's Just Drive Teen Influencers. As Teen Influencers these 6 students will focus on making an impact on their peers to make good decisions while driving. The focus of this year's program will take a look at bad weather driving, safe driving, impairment behind the wheel, seat belts, and more. This project is being student led by one of our own, Benjamin Novotny. SV SADD is excited to see the work these students complete together!
It is so scary how distracted driving affects everyone.

Park Elementary has been ranked #9 on Niche’s list of Standout Elementary Schools in Pennsylvania: https://www.niche.com/k12/search/niche-standout-elementary-schools/s/pennsylvania/.

Things got off to a great start today when Joanna Abel came in for a meet-and-greet with the first grade students. She visited each classroom and got everyone excited for the Balance and Motion science unit they're about to start. The first graders can't wait until Ms. Abel comes back next week!!!

Steel Valley SADD attended the Statewide Conference on November 1, 2021 at 7 Springs Resort. Fifteen Students had the opportunity to listen to speakers such as Matt Bellace, psychologist, who talked about the effects of drugs and alcohol on the body and speaker Scott Pangnast, who shared his experiences with mental health. At the conference, Ben Novotony was once again honored for his service to SADD with the presidential award. Steel Valley SADD was also awarded the 2021 Activity of the Year for their online video series called Personal Perspectives. These videos created by the SADD officers are short interviews with students, teachers, community members and more where the audience can see their perspective on the harmful effects of drugs and alcohol. Steel Valley SADD is excited for their next Conference!
Students learn a number of strategies that help them master basic math facts and improve fluency with numbers. Last week, second graders were introduced to the Make Ten strategy. Manipulatives helped them make sense of what this strategy is all about. Great work second graders!
