New Teen Driver Education Program to Emphasize Safety at San Ramon Valley Unified Schools 

 

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District (SRVUSD) will implement a new system for students who wish to obtain on-campus parking permits that emphasizes traffic safety. Beginning in the 2018-2019 school year, the SRVUSD in partnership with Street Smarts and the California Highway Patrol (CHP)  will sponsor free two hour CHP Start Smart classes. Students and their parent/guardian must attend one free two hour CHP Start Smart class in order to be eligible for a parking permit at all SRVUSD High Schools.  

 

The Start Smart presentations provide an opportunity for teens and their parents/guardians to discuss the serious laws, obligations, responsibilities and family expectations that are part of driving a vehicle.  The goal is to promote and create safe driving habits around SRVUSD schools.

 

The Start Smart presentations will begin in the 2017-2018 year for parking pass eligibility in the 2018-19 school year. At this class, officers from the California Highway Patrol will discuss traffic avoidance techniques, collision causing factors, driver/parent responsibilities and seatbelt usage. All SRVUSD comprehensive high schools will offer 3-4 free classes each year that are open to anyone. The class must only be taken once during a student’s high school career.

Breaking Down the Walls is coming back! This January we are excited to bring back BDTW for SRV students and staff who did not have the opportunity to participate in September. The details are below to help you understand how it works. If you would like to participate as a leader (it means Tuesday training and a Wed or Thurs participation day) or just a one day participant fill out this quick form! https://goo.gl/mxk53V

 

LEADER Training is Tuesday Jan 30: Breaking Down the Walls sends one of Learning for Living’s top motivational speakers for an afternoon training session.

 

Fifty selected student leaders through the San Ramon Valley High School will come together and be trained to help facilitate the Workshop days that will take place Wednesday and
Thursday. One of Learning for Living’s goals is the promotion of leaders at all
levels. These students will receive training in leadership, listening skills,
motivation, student support and what is required to be a positive role model.
These students will walk away from this training ready to facilitate a small
group during the workshops.

 

Participant Days are Wednesday (Jan 31) and Thursday (Feb 1) A Learning for Living staff member and the student leaders. A workshop day is an intense six-hour day of activities and inspirational interactions with up to 175 students each day and half of the trained leaders (25 students). That means 200 students will be pulled from class for the entire school day on Wednesday and a different 200 students will be pulled on Thursday.

 

We hope that students who attend a Workshop day will forever change the way they view their campus, their fellow students, and most importantly, themselves. The goal is after the completion of a Workshop day, students will better understand their presence on campus,
embracing their individuality while finding their place as a member of a great
student body. The brilliant part about Breaking Down the Walls is the students
who attend will plant the seeds of its meaning in their friends, their family,
and their community. We want respect, support and encouragement to grow and
flourish on our campus in a way never seen before. If you want to watch the

The San Ramon Valley High School Marching Wolves and Jazz Ensemble arrived early at school on Saturday – yes, Veterans’ Day – to travel to Merced for the Annual Central California Band Review.  The weather was beautiful this weekend and we had an opportunity share the competition with @ 37 other schools.   Please help me to celebrate the following honors for our students:

Marching Wolves:  2nd Place Parade Award

Drum Line: 5th Place percussion

Corrine Smith, Drum Major: 4th Place

Jazz Ensemble:  1st Place Jazz Award (we just missed a Sweepstakes award by 0.5 points….)

 

Dodgeball! Teams consist of 8 members (7 players and 1 sub) and cost is $80. Teams with the most seniors will be given priority (example 8 seniors, then 7, then 6, etc.) Once the teams are chosen, the captains meeting will be held at lunch in R16 beginning on November 30 with t-shirts being handed out to the captains. The actual tournament will be played December 4-8 at lunch in the Main Gym.

 

New Teen Driver Education Program to Emphasize Safety at San Ramon Valley Unified Schools 

 

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District (SRVUSD) will implement a new system for students who wish to obtain on-campus parking permits that emphasizes traffic safety. Beginning in the 2018-2019 school year, the SRVUSD in partnership with Street Smarts and the California Highway Patrol (CHP)  will sponsor free two hour CHP Start Smart classes. Students and their parent/guardian must attend one free two hour CHP Start Smart class in order to be eligible for a parking permit at all SRVUSD High Schools.  

 

The Start Smart presentations provide an opportunity for teens and their parents/guardians to discuss the serious laws, obligations, responsibilities and family expectations that are part of driving a vehicle.  The goal is to promote and create safe driving habits around SRVUSD schools.

 

The Start Smart presentations will begin in the 2017-2018 year for parking pass eligibility in the 2018-19 school year.

Breaking Down the Walls is coming back! This January we are excited to bring back BDTW for SRV students and staff who did not have the opportunity to participate in September. The details are below to help you understand how it works. If you would like to participate as a leader (it means Tuesday training and a Wed or Thurs participation day) or just a one day participant fill out this quick form! https://goo.gl/mxk53V

 

LEADER Training is Tuesday Jan 30: Breaking Down the Walls sends one of Learning for Living’s top motivational speakers for an afternoon training session. Fifty selected student leaders through the San Ramon Valley High School will come together and be trained to help facilitate the Workshop days that will take place Wednesday and Thursday. One of Learning for Living’s goals is the promotion of leaders at all levels. These students will receive training in leadership, listening skills, motivation, student support and what is required to be a positive role model. These students will walk away from this training ready to facilitate a small group during the workshops. Participations Days are Wednesday (Jan 31) and Thursday (Feb 1) A Learning for Living staff member and the student leaders. A workshop day is an intense six-hour day of activities and inspirational interactions with up to 175 students each day and half of the trained leaders (25 students). That means 200 students will be pulled from class for the entire school day on Wednesday and a different 200 students will be pulled on Thursday. We hope that students who attend a Workshop day will forever change the way they view their campus, their fellow students, and most importantly, themselves. The goal is after the completion of a Workshop day, students will better understand their presence on campus, embracing their individuality while finding their place as a member of a great student body. The brilliant part about Breaking Down the Walls is the students who attend will plant the seeds of its meaning in their friends, their family, and their community. We want respect, support and encouragement to grow and flourish on our campus in a way never seen before.

New Teen Driver Education Program to Emphasize Safety at San Ramon Valley Unified Schools

 

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District (SRVUSD) will implement a new system for students who wish to obtain on-campus parking permits that emphasizes traffic safety. Beginning in the 2018-2019 school year, the SRVUSD in partnership with Street Smarts and the California Highway Patrol (CHP)  will sponsor free two hour CHP Start Smart classes. Students and their parent/guardian must attend one free two hour CHP Start Smart class in order to be eligible for a parking permit at all SRVUSD High Schools.  

 

The Start Smart presentations provide an opportunity for teens and their parents/guardians to discuss the serious laws, obligations, responsibilities and family expectations that are part of driving a vehicle.  The goal is to promote and create safe driving habits around SRVUSD schools.

 

The Start Smart presentations will begin in the 2017-2018 year for parking pass eligibility in the 2018-19 school year. At this class, officers from the California Highway Patrol will discuss traffic avoidance techniques, collision causing factors, driver/parent responsibilities and seatbelt usage. All SRVUSD comprehensive high schools will offer 3-4 free classes each year that are open to anyone. The class must only be taken once during a student’s high school career.

Breaking Down the Walls is coming back! This January we are excited to bring back BDTW for SRV students and staff who did not have the opportunity to participate in September. The details are below to help you understand how it works. If you would like to participate as a leader (it means Tuesday training and a Wed or Thurs participation day) or just a one day participant fill out this quick form! https://goo.gl/mxk53V

LEADER Training is Tuesday Jan 30: Breaking Down the Walls sends one of Learning for Living’s top motivational speakers for an afternoon training session. Fifty selected student leaders through the San Ramon Valley High School will come together and be trained to help facilitate the Workshop days that will take place Wednesday and Thursday. One of Learning for Living’s goals is the promotion of leaders at all levels. These students will receive training in leadership, listening skills, motivation, student support and what is required to be a positive role model. These students will walk away from this training ready to facilitate a small group during the workshops. Participations Days are Wednesday (Jan 31) and Thursday (Feb 1) A Learning for Living staff member and the student leaders. A workshop day is an intense six-hour day of activities and inspirational interactions with up to 175 students each day and half of the trained leaders (25 students). That means 200 students will be pulled from class for the entire school day on Wednesday and a different 200 students will be pulled on Thursday. We hope that students who attend a Workshop day will forever change the way they view their campus, their fellow students, and most importantly, themselves. The goal is after the completion of a Workshop day, students will better understand their presence on campus, embracing their individuality while finding their place as a member of a great student body. The brilliant part about Breaking Down the Walls is the students who attend will plant the seeds of its meaning in their friends, their family, and their community. We want respect, support and encouragement to grow and flourish on our campus in a way never seen before.

New Teen Driver Education Program to Emphasize Safety at San Ramon Valley Unified Schools 

 

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District (SRVUSD) will implement a new system for students who wish to obtain on-campus parking permits that emphasizes traffic safety. Beginning in the 2018-2019 school year, the SRVUSD in partnership with Street Smarts and the California Highway Patrol (CHP)  will sponsor free two hour CHP Start Smart classes. Students and their parent/guardian must attend one free two hour CHP Start Smart class in order to be eligible for a parking permit at all SRVUSD High Schools.  

 

The Start Smart presentations provide an opportunity for teens and their parents/guardians to discuss the serious laws, obligations, responsibilities and family expectations that are part of driving a vehicle.  The goal is to promote and create safe driving habits around SRVUSD schools.

 

The Start Smart presentations will begin in the 2017-2018 year for parking pass eligibility in the 2018-19 school year. At this class, officers from the California Highway Patrol will discuss traffic avoidance techniques, collision causing factors, driver/parent responsibilities and seatbelt usage. All SRVUSD comprehensive high schools will offer 3-4 free classes each year that are open to anyone. The class must only be taken once during a student’s high school career.

Sports:

Congrats SRV Women's Volleyball for moving on to the second round of NCS Championship!  They beat Santa Rosa 3-0.  Their next match will be played on Saturday, November 4th at 7 p.m. at Cal High.  Go Wolves! 

 

League with member schools affected

Assisting League Schools

Coastal Mountain Conference (CMC)

WACC and HDNL schools

North Bay League (NBL)

EBAL, DAL and BVAL schools

Sonoma County League (SCL)

MVAL and BAC schools

Napa area (Justin-Siena, Napa, Vintage and American Canyon schools)

TCAL and MCAL schools

 

This effort is seeking assistance from your communities, not from your school/league funds.  While the suggested amount is $25, any amount is accepted, which also includes checks made out to North Coast Section, CIF.  All funds will go directly to the affected leagues and each commissioner will work with the affected school principal to determine the needs, and the school principal will distribute the cards/cash. In addition, if families would rather contribute in a different way, I have suggested two funds in the letter where 100% of the funds go to the affected families. 

Our NCS member school families are hurting, and it is my hope that we can raise a significant amount to relieve some of the stress and strain of this disaster.

SENIORS 

The UC application opened  11/1 for seniors to submit by 11/30.  Take your time and enter your coursework accurately (i.e. use your transcript as your reference; don’t guess).  Be sure to answer the Personal Insight questions and use your responses to enlighten the application reader regarding who you are.  Your application will show what you have done both in and out of the classroom, but your personal side comes through in these responses!  

Application link:  https://admissions.universityofcalifornia.edu/applicant/login.htm

UC Application Information:  http://admission.universityofcalifornia.edu/how-to-apply/apply-online

 

College Application Working Session:  If you need assistance with your college applications, be sure to attend our last College Application Working Session on  11/16 during Access period in the College & Career Center.  Bring your chrome book and application materials (i.e. transcript, etc.) with you to these sessions and we will assist you as you work on your applications and/or be available to assist as needed.    Sign up on Naviance!

 

California State University (CSU) application opened 10/1/17 and the completed applications to all CSU’s should be submitted by 11/30 - Go to www.calstate.edu/apply to complete your application.  If you took Algebra 1, Geometry or Foreign Language in middle school, be sure you follow the instructions on this link from the Cal State Apply website help section to enter those courses:  https://help.liaisonedu.com/Cal_State_Apply_Applicant_Help_Center/Filling_Out_Your_Cal_State_Apply_Application/Cal_State_Apply_Academic_History/2_High_School_Coursework#7th_and_8th_Grade_Coursework

 

College Essays/Personal Insight Questions.  Be sure you answer the questions and add value to your application in your responses.  Share information about yourself that an admission reader may not glean purely from the application itself.   Tips from the UCSB rep visit on 10/12 re:  Personal insight questions:  “These are not essays; treat them like interviews.  Your responses round out your application; they are looking for content and expect students to be using “I” a lot as they are talking about themselves!”.   We are happy to review your essays/personal insight questions responses, but request a 72 hour response time on these.  Please make sure that your essays/responses include the question you are responding to, and have your name and the submission date on them when you drop them off.   You can place your ‘draft’ essays in our “in box”, if we are out when you drop by.

If you are already missing having some fun, spirited dress up days- don’t fear! Red Ribbon Week is next week! Here are some fun activities and themes for the upcoming week:

Monday (October 23) Wear red to school to kick off Red Ribbon Week. Red Ribbon Week is dedicated to Special Agent Camarena, who gave his life while investigating drug cartels in Mexico. Today we continue to bring awareness and prevention to the dangers of drugs and alcohol. Join Americans all over the country supporting this cause and showing your opposition to drugs.

 

Tuesday (October 24) Wear Hawaiian themed outfits to Lei off Drugs!

 

Wednesday (October 25) Wear your pajamas to school to Put Drugs to Sleep! We will be offering an optional ACCESS assembly in the Main Gym. Jeff Davis will be speaking about, “Why are drugs like Halloween?”  If we as a community hope to successfully address the issue of teen drug abuse, we have to understand why teens turn to drugs.  It is the same reason why they dress up on Halloween, but with potentially more serious consequences.  Speaking from the experience of his own family, SRVHS teacher Jeff Davis will try to give students a way to talk more openly about the problems they face so we can help them to stop running away from themselves and to stop running toward self-injuring behavior

 

Thursday (October 26) Wear your favorite sports jersey to promote being on a Drug Free Team! We will have cotton candy and popcorn in the quad for those who dress up, along with some games.

 

Friday (October 27) Wear Green and Gold to show spirit for the big Monte Vista game tonight! Beat MV and Beat Drugs!

Parent and Community Education on Monday, October 23, 2017 at 7:00 in the California High School TheatreSuicide Prevention Presentation by Contra Costa Crisis Center 

The mental health of our students is a top priority in the San Ramon Valley Unified School District. According to the California Department of Education, 20 percent of the State’s kindergarten through 12th grade students struggle with mental health issues that impact their relationships at home, in school and in the community. Sometimes these feelings lead to students silently contemplating suicide.

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District has been a leader in providing suicide prevention education in our schools. These efforts have been reinforced with the passage of  Assembly Bill 2246: Pupil Suicide Prevention Policies. For more information, visit the Contra Costa Crisis Center website.

College Application Working Sessions are scheduled for 10/26, 11/9, and 11/16 during Access period in the College & Career Center.  Do you need time to work on college applications? Bring your chrome book and application materials (i.e. transcript, etc.) with you to these sessions and we will assist you as you work on your applications and/or be available to assist as needed.    We will also review ‘polished drafts’ of your college essays and personal insight question responses throughout the fall but request a 72 hour response time on these.  Please make sure that your essays/responses include the question you are responding to, and have your name and the submission date on them when you drop them off.   You can place your ‘draft’ essays in our “in box” if we are out when you drop by.

 

California State University (CSU) application opened 10/1/17 - Go to www.calstate.edu/apply to begin your application.  If you took Algebra 1, Geometry or Foreign Language in middle school, be sure you follow the instructions on this link from the Cal State Apply website help section to enter those courses:  https://help.liaisonedu.com/Cal_State_Apply_Applicant_Help_Center/Filling_Out_Your_Cal_State_Apply_Application/Cal_State_Apply_Academic_History/2_High_School_Coursework#7th_and_8th_Grade_Coursework

 

College Essays/Personal Insight Questions.  Be sure you answer the questions and add value to your application in your responses.  Share information about yourself that an admission reader may not glean purely from the application itself.   Tips from the UCSB rep visit on 10/12 re:  Personal insight questions:  “These are not essays; treat them like interviews.  Your responses round out your application; they are looking for content and expect students to be using “I” a lot as they are talking about themselves!”. 

 

Scholarships:  Comcast is looking to recognize a senior for “LEADERSHIP AND ACHIEVEMENT” and their award could be up to $1000.  SRVHS may nominate one senior to apply.  The pre-application for Comcast is due by Oct. 23 in the College and Career Center.  See details and download the pre-applications from Naviance.

We also need help with the teardown process of the float.  This will happen during half time or end of the homecoming game and the float will be adjacent to the football field.  The more help we have, the quicker it will go! Thanks for your help!

SENIOR PARENTS

We are already hard at work planning Grad Night 2018.  Below is a list of the areas where we still need parents to step up if we’re going to make this happen.  Please, please consider signing on to one of these positions.  While we need “worker bees”, without parents assigned to specific areas, it will be impossible to get it all covered.  Building will not begin until January or February, but planning starts now! If there is something you are interested in and need more info, just contact me. Click on this link to sign up http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0a48a5a82f4-srvhs1

The Wild Bunch will be giving a portion of every floral sale from Homecoming back to SRV! Check out the attached order form for more information.

 

The Teen Advocacy Health and Wellness Club is starting a campaign called the "I'm Makeup Free" Day. During this day, all individuals who wear makeup on a daily basis come to school with a fresh, pure face to acknowledge the fact that makeup is an amazing product; however, natural beauty is just as beautiful and expressive. Students are not obliged to do so though. But, it would mean the world to the Health and Wellness Club if you could all support their campaign as well as rock your natural beauty! If you are planning on supporting this campaign, it's taking place this Friday 9/29 and will continue every month on the 29th! If you would like to join the club, they meet every Thursday in I3 (Mrs. Braden's Room) during lunch! Don't Forget! Friday come to school with no makeup to rock your natural glam!

 

New 12th Man Spirit T-shirts are now available for only $5 in R16!

Float Kick-Off Planning Meeting Wed. Oct. 4th 6-9pm -  Pugh Residence 42 Gentle Creek Place, Danville

This meeting is for students and parents.  We need parents to help the kids with the construction of the float. Most work will be done week of Oct. 8th from 5-8pm.  Nicole Shay will discuss the vision for the float and how we can make it come to life!  Please come to the meeting to hear about the details if you'd like to help!

 

Homecoming Float 
Thank you to all the families that donated to homecoming at registration this year.  With your generosity, we have the money for the kids to build an amazing float.  The only additional items we would like for the build are scrap plywood or paint that you have laying around.  Please contact Nicole Shay @ nicoleshay@live.com, if you have supplies to drop off or if you are able to help with the build.

 

Float Teardown after Homecoming Game

We also need help with the teardown process of the float.  This will happen during half time or end of the homecoming game and the float will be adjacent to the football field.  The more help we have, the quicker it will go! Thanks for your help! 

 

SENIOR PARENTS

We are already hard at work planning Grad Night 2018.  Below is a list of the areas where we still need parents to step up if we’re going to make this happen.  Please, please consider signing on to one of these positions.  While we need “worker bees”, without parents assigned to specific areas, it will be impossible to get it all covered.  Building will not begin until January or February, but planning starts now! If there is something you are interested in and need more info, just contact me. Click on this link to sign up http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0a48a5a82f4-srvhs1

HOMECOMING WEEK: Seven Seas High School (The Suite Life on Deck)

 

----------------------------------------------------------

 

 WEEKLY BULLETIN 9/22/17

 

Transition in Administration:

Mrs. Ramos graciously said goodbye to SRV this past Wednesday, September 20th, when she accepted a position as an Assistant Principal at Iron Horse Middle School. Justin White will be replacing her as SRV’s new Assistant Principal covering students with the last name beginning with Os-Z.

Justin has been an Assistant Principal at Gale Ranch Middle School for the past 4 years.  Justin comes highly recommended from his current Principal and many District Officials.  Justin will take over Dearborn’s responsibilities when he begins.  Listed below is Justin’s biography.

 

My name is Justin White and I am excited to be joining the San Ramon Valley High School team in my role as Assistant Principal.  I am coming to you from my current role as Assistant Principal at Gale Ranch Middle School where I spent four amazing years.

I obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Kinesiology from Chico State and my Master’s degree in Education from Stanislaus State.   I taught Special Education, Kinesiology, Physical Education and was an Athletic Director during my first seven years in education.  I have been fortunate to be able to serve in a variety of administrative roles over the past several years in three different school districts such as Program Specialist for Special Education, Child Welfare and Attendance Liaison, Learning Director and Assistant Principal at both the middle and high school levels.

 

A core belief of mine is that making meaningful connections with each other, students and our community is what builds the solid foundation for the important work that we do.  I look forward to bringing my experience to San Ramon Valley High School and I am excited to work with students, staff and the community that make SRVHS such a great school. 

I currently reside in Danville, CA with my wife, Terra, 6 year old son Jackson and our Weimaraner Harlow.  I spend my spare time hiking with my family in the Marin Headlands and love to golf whenever I can. 

 

Please join me in giving Justin a warm “OHANA” welcome!

 

Don't miss the IMPROV show in the PAC 9/21 and 9/22 at 7PM-only $5!

 

School Picture Make Up Day is this Monday September 25th. Here is the link with information to order school pictures.  http://www.s1portal.com/srvhs.html

 

Homecoming Dance Tickets Sales:             

The Homecoming Dance will be held in both SRV gyms on Saturday, October 14th from 7:00-10:00PM. You do not need a date to attend. The dance is semi-formal, there will be food, games and a huge dance!  The capacity is limited, so buy your tickets early before we sell out!

 

Tickets start at $30 with ASB sticker and $40 for non ASB, beginning Monday September 25th on the SRV web store. Prices will increase starting on Wednesday October 4th to $35 w/ASB and $45 without/ASB. Cash sales begin on Monday, October 2nd. See Mrs. Bellamy at LUNCH ONLY in the attendance office. Please remember that you may only buy one ticket per ID card. If you're planning to purchase your SRV date's ticket, you need to have their ID number to purchase their ticket.

 

Again, you do not need a date to attend.  Sorry, there will be NO GUEST PASSES, as we only have space for SRV students to attend. After October 6th, if tickets are still available the ticket price will increase to $45 w/ASB and $50w/out.  Please remember that you may only buy one ticket per ID card. The Wild Bunch will be giving a portion of every floral sale from Homecoming back to SRV! Check out the attached order form for more information.

We already have plenty of backpacks but are still in need of any of the following items if you would like to donate to this great cause: (new items only please): Hair Brush, Adult Size Fuzzy Socks, toothbrush/toothpaste, deodorant, disposable razors, acne face wash,  hair bands, travel size hair gel, quart size ziplock bags.

The annual district College Fair is on Wed., Oct, 25 @ Monte Vista this year.  The event is from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. and all students and families are invited. No preregistration is necessary. 

IMPORTANT STUDENT INFORMATION:

Hello SRVHS families,

 

This year, we are offering the PSAT on Saturday, October 14th. Juniors have priority registration August 25th through September 1st. Sophomores and freshmen can begin registering September 2nd.  Registration for all grades closes Friday, September 21st, at 3:30 p.m. There will be 300 seats available.  

 

The PSAT is modeled after the official SAT. This will allow students to be better prepared for the actual SAT, as the type of questions, as well as directions, are in an equivalent format. Students will be able to analyze their results, and assess areas they need to improve upon prior to the official exam. The PSAT also gives your student the option to receive information from colleges through the Student Search Service and 11th graders who take the PSAT become eligible for the National Merit Scholarship Program. Taking the PSAT is the ONLY WAY YOUR STUDENT WILL BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE NATIONAL MERIT SCHOLARSHIP.

 

The cost of the exam is $35 (nonrefundable) and the test will be given at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday October 14th in the Commons and the D Hall. You can register on our Web Store’s homepage at: https://sanramon.revtrak.net/PSAT and can also download a free study guide.

Our 10K, 5K Timed, 5K Fun Run Walk and Mini Run are the primary fund-raising activities for the San Ramon Valley Education Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports and promotes education in our community in partnership with the San Ramon Valley Unified School District.

 

Together with our 34 affiliates, we raise more than 7 million dollars a year to support our underfunded schools.

 

Are you registered for the Run?

Tier 2 includes

  2. Students who want their own locker

Students can leave their signed Locker Agreement in the drop box on the counter in the Counseling Department.  Locker Assignments can be picked up from the same location 2 business days later.  Lockers are available on a first come first served basis until we run out.

Danville Square (Trader Joe's center) and Garden Creek Townhomes have requested that parents/student refrain from dropping off/ picking up and parking in these locations during school hours.  Those in violation may be subject to tow.  Thank you in advance for your cooperation!

 

WOLVES Water Bottles will be selling for $20 outside the Commons during Back to School Night!  All proceeds go to benefit Grad Night 2018.

 

Del Amigo Parking

There will no longer be access to drive thru or drop off students in the Del Amigo parking lot due to their Transition programs. The programs have bus transportation for their students, and additional parking and traffic will congest their small lot making it impossible the buses to drop off. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

Calling all volunteers and potential volunteers! Please sign up and get cleared to volunteer, chaperone or drive. Current volunteers must keep valid insurance and driver’s license on file with Be A Mentor (www.beamentor.org). New to SRVHS? Be sure to add our school to your list of volunteering locations. Contact Trish Theobald at ttheobald@srvusd.net with any questions.

 NAVIANCE:  Please remind your students to check their Naviance portal frequently for scheduled COLLEGE VISITS, as they will sign up to participate via their Naviance Portal.  TIP for students re:  Colleges I am Thinking About…If you have colleges on this list in your Naviance portal, you will receive an email if a rep from that college signs up to visit SRVHS.  So, build your lists and be informed!  .  For Naviance questions, please email us and we will do what we can to assist.  

 SENIORS:  See our postings on the College and Career Center pages of the school’s website for tips on starting/continuing your college research and applications. 

  • Your counselors will be coming into your English classes in a couple of weeks to review the college application process with you.  Be thinking of your questions!
  • Remember to sign up for College Visits on Naviance (College page) and print the confirmation page/pass.  Ask your teacher for signature approval to miss class at the time of the visit (if it is not a lunch time visit) and bring your signed page to the visit.  If it is a lunch time visit, no signature is necessary, but please sign up and print and bring the confirmation page with you to the visit. 

 

The PSAT will be administered at SRVHS on Sat., October 14th and space is limited.  PSAT registration is OPEN now for Juniors and will be open to other students as of Sept. 2nd! Access the registration link from the SRVHS website home page (left side).  The PSAT is a preliminary test to introduce junior students to the SAT test and the score does not get reported to colleges.  PSAT results can be a valuable tool in helping juniors prepare for the official SAT.   High scoring students may potentially qualify for scholarships through the National Merit Scholarship Corporation.   Go to: https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/psat-nmsqt-psat-10/inside-the-test to learn about what is on the test and to: https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/psat-nmsqt-psat-10/scholarships-and-recognition to learn about the potential scholarship opportunities for 11th grade students. 

 College Visits to SRVHS.  We are scheduling college visits daily, and all are posted on the COLLEGES page of the students’ Naviance portal.   The UCLA visit that is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 5th at 11 a.m. has been moved to the LIBRARY to be able to host more students.  Pre-registration is required and is limited to 70 attendees.  Be sure to sign up on your Colleges page and print the confirmation page to be signed by your 3rd period teacher.  Bring this signed page to the visit to be admitted.   (Note:  UCLA will also be at the College Night event on Oct. 25 at Monte Vista, so you may also talk to the rep there.) This sign up procedure will be the same for all college visits!  You MUST have pre-registered for all visits! 

Other upcoming College Visits to SRVHS include:  UCLA, Georgia Tech, Vanderbilt, Franklin U of Switzerland, U of TN, U of St. Andrews, U of the Pacific, Boston College, Dominican U, Hawaii Pacific, U of Tampa and many, many more… Sign up on Naviance to attend!   New visits are added daily!!

 Regional College Visits.  Many colleges cannot visit every high school, so often hold regional visits in a single Bay Area location (i.e. a hotel).  If there is a particular college you wish to learn about, and they are not coming to SRVHS or you cannot miss class to attend their visit, be sure to search the college’s website for regional events.  Many colleges host them in SF, Berkeley, San Jose, Santa Clara, etc.  Students and parents may sign up on their specific websites.  

 Chapman University is hosting Prospective Student Admissions Interviews in Walnut Creek on Oct. 7 and 8.  Pre-registration is necessary and interviews are open to graduating seniors only.  Go to:   https://www.chapman.edu/admission/undergraduate/high-school-visits.aspx
