After learning about the events that took place on September 11th, 2001, students in Ms. Olivia Gerlitz’s 5th grade class at Valley Road School in Clark created original poems. The fifth graders used their creativity to honor those that we lost that day and the heroes that so bravely severed our country. “Students truly used the poems to express their feelings. Their messages were heartfelt and moving.” said Ms. Gerlitz. She has taken their poems and created a book to share with their families.
