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

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. 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!


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. If you want to watch the video version:
