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 are now being sold for $35 w/ASB and $45 without/ASB. 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.

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.

 

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!

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

 

 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!

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.

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

 

For more information on the PSAT, please go to: https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/psat-nmsqt-psat-10

A few upcoming events we wanted to make the community aware of, check out the flyers for these great fundraising events for SRV!

Collection Drive for Foster Kids (Ages 12-18yrs): Did you know that most foster kids have to use a black plastic garbage bag to carry their few personal belongings from place to place?  The SRVHS Pledge to Humanity Club is organizing a collection drive so that foster kids can receive their very own bag filled with critical items they need.  These special bags (called “Comfort Cases”) include NEW items which we will be collecting during the months of August & September in the school office (look for PTH bin). Our club will assemble these comfort cases and deliver them to local foster kids. We would love ANY of the following donations (new items only please): small duffel or backpack, pajamas, small blanket (40x60’ or smaller), stuffed animal, coloring book, pens & pencils, book toothbrush/toothpaste*, shampoo & conditioner*, lotion*, soap*, deodorant*, (*travel sizes are acceptable). Donations can also be left in school office or at 451 Bolla Place Alamo on the front doorstep.
