The Class of 2019 Valedictorian Catherine Fergesan!
Cat is a great representative of the talented and innovative student body we have at Passaic Valley High School. She has accumulated her fair share of accomplishments and achievements while at PV, but the road to success does not end here. Catherine plans to study Psychology and Linguistics in college and has been accepted into Oxford, Stanford, Yale, Princeton, University of Pennsylvania, UC Berkeley, UC Los Angeles, University of Southern California, Williams College and has been waitlisted at Harvard and Columbia. We at PV are super excited to see what she does next and wish her the best of luck!

Chemagination Contest with Dr. Iobst
Chemagination is a great learning experience for students. In addition to increasing their knowledge of science and chemistry, they can improve their creative, teamwork and public speaking skills. Students are asked to imagine they are living 25 years in the future and have been invited to write a magazine article in ChemMatters. The subject of the article is: "Describe a recent breakthrough or innovation in chemistry that has improved the quality of peoples lives today." Students are also asked to design the magazine cover. It was amazing to see all the ideas students came up with, they really put a lot of thought into these presentations and introduced some excellent designs.
The two teams from PV that were carefully selected to move on to the 2019 MARM (MidAtlantic Regional Competition) Event on June 1st at the University of Maryland are..
Environment: Saving the Planet: One Rubber Bag at a Time by Elizabeth Dubov and Betul Koc
Medicine: Combating Retinal Detachment: by Raima Islam and Betul Duzgun
Congratulations & Good Luck!
