On Oct. 24, Board of Education members for the Valley Stream District 30, as well as families and loved ones, were treated to music, dancing and a show by Clear Stream Avenue students akin to a full-on Hollywood production.
The screen above the Shaw Avenue auditorium read “Valleywood” as students set the stage for a big thanks to the board. Students put on a short sketch, and second and fourth grade chorus singers performed under the direction of Stephanie Cooke. A new song, “Hooray for Valleywood,” written by Clear Stream Principal John Singleton, celebrated the unique qualities of the students’ hometown. Student Emily Arias then took center stage for a dazzling dance.
The event culminated in the premiere of “Valleywood the Movie,” in which Clear Stream students took on the roles of the district’s board members and acted out a business meeting. After the showing, each board member stood on the stage with their actor counterparts to share their mutual thanks.
The “Valleywood” production was coordinated in celebration of School Board Recognition Week, which is recognized this year from Oct. 17-21.
