Student Council and NJROTC recognized as emerging leaders in our community

After receiving nominations from Principal Craig Mussi, two of our student groups have been recognized by Councilwoman Thelda Williams as emerging community leaders in District 1.

The Moon Valley Student Council, led by Ashley Burns and Jenna Serafini and Student Body President Justine Cardenas, has taken on many community service projects.  They have branched out by hosting blood drives, cleaned up our community through the Adopt-A-Street program and recycling efforts for our campus, and are volunteering at local elementary schools.  Our Student Council is currently working on a community service based project for the spring which involves every club at our school.  So be on the lookout for the wonderful efforts of these students.

Our NJROTC unit also received recognition under the Command of Patrick MacLean and Paul Barnett.  Moon Valley Cadets have volunteered at the Special Olympics each October, cleaned up the campus, Cactus Park and also participated in Adopt-A-Street.  They have traveled to Lake Pleasant and other state parks to complete repairs and clean up, assisted with school activities and athletic events, and even play an integral part in our school Emergency Response Plan.  In the last two years, NJROTC has devoted over 10,000 hours of community service time as they continue to be a positive force both at Moon Valley and in our community.
