Many in the community have asked for updates about Kevin Madsen, a 2017 graduate who has been fighting cancer for the past 4 years. The Madsen Family has been deeply touched by the outpouring of support from our community. Last October they found out that Kevin's cancer has spread. A tumor was found behind his bladder. Kevin is done with conventional chemo and had been waiting for a trial to open so he can have a shot. Last week, he started one at UCSF. We are very hopeful and optimistic, as is Kevin. He is strong and willing to do what it takes. If you want to stay updated on his progress or ways you can help the family use this link: https://www.youcaring.com/kevinmadsen-687135

There is a bin in the attendance office that says “Library Games” if you wish to contribute to the fun.

 

Thank you,

It provides students an opportunity to immerse themselves in space life sciences with a specific focus on omics-based bioinformatics research, the science of collecting and analyzing complex biological data such as genetic codes, and computational biology

 

SENIORS 

Seniors Considering DVC (Diablo Valley Community College): If you are a senior considering DVC in the fall and you did NOT attend their presentation on 2/7/18 at SRVHS, stop by the College and Career Center or see your counselor to learn about the steps needed to gain priority enrollment.  Orientation classes are beginning at the end of the month that lead you through the steps to gain priority registration for fall.  You need to sign up in advance for these orientation classes so don’t delay getting the information you need! 

 

And/or if you have decided to attend Las Positas Community College (LPC), remember to follow their early admissions process and apply by March 1, 2018 and follow their specific enrollment steps to gain early course registration.   Go to:  www.laspositascollege.edu/earlyadmission/applying.php for more information. 

 

Remember to submit your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) by March 2, 2018, for priority financial aid consideration at most CA public colleges, including community colleges.  Go to:  www.fafsa.ed.gov to submit your application. 

 

Once you submit your college application(s), be sure to CHECK YOUR EMAILS for communications from those colleges.  Keep in mind that many colleges do not send emails, they only post updates in your (prospective) student portal, so be sure to check that as well!

 

Sending Mid-Year Transcripts (from Mrs. Murray, Registrar/Counseling):  If you need a Midyear Transcript sent to colleges you've applied to, please see Mrs. Murray’s posting on School Loop. 

 

Sending OFFICial Test Scores   Check each campus website to learn when you need to send “official” scores and meet those deadlines.  Requirements can vary by college campus (even if some of those campuses are in the same college system, i.e. CSU).   Some use your self reported scores in their admissions evaluation, and only ask you to send your scores if you are admitted.  Knowing the practice at each college could potentially save you money.   ACT: www.act.org; SAT:  www.collegeboard.org

 

SCHOLARSHIPS:  Check Naviance - Colleges Tab – Scholarship List for how to apply for these and other scholarships posted!  Be sure to look on www.fastweb also as it is one of the largest scholarship search engines.  Many local organizations offer scholarships…including PTA, Rotary, Assistance League of Diablo Valley and more!  Don’t miss out!

Many in the community have asked for updates about Kevin Madsen, a 2017 graduate who has been fighting cancer for the past 4 years. The Madsen Family has been deeply touched by the outpouring of support from our community. Last October they found out that Kevin's cancer has spread. A tumor was found behind his bladder. Kevin is done with conventional chemo and had been waiting for a trial to open so he can have a shot. Last week, he started one at UCSF. We are very hopeful and optimistic, as is Kevin. He is strong and willing to do what it takes. If you want to stay updated on his progress or ways you can help the family use this link: https://www.youcaring.com/kevinmadsen-687135

SENIORS 

Once you submit your college application(s), be sure to check your emails for communications from those colleges.  Keep in mind that many colleges do not send emails, they only post updates in your (prospective) student portal, so be sure to check that as well!

Sending Mid-Year Transcripts (from Mrs. Murray, Registrar/Counseling):  If you need a Midyear Transcript sent to colleges you've applied to, please read and follow this procedure:

  • Do Not Request (mid-year transcripts) in Naviance. (1)  Determine which colleges want midyear (aka 7th semester) transcripts by checking your colleges’ portal accounts. Note: All Common App (CA) colleges request a Midyear Transcript.  (2) In Naviance, go to “Colleges I’m Applying To” and print out your list of colleges. (3) Highlight or Circle the college(s) that need a Midyear Transcript.  (4) Hand the printout to the Mrs. Murray and she will send your midyear transcript accordingly.  See Mrs. Murray in Counseling with questions.  

 

Sending Test Scores   Check each campus website to learn when you need to send “official” scores.  Some use your self reported scores in their admissions evaluation, and only ask you to send your scores if you are admitted.  Knowing the practice at each college could potentially save you money.

  • College Board (SAT and/or SAT Subject Tests):  UC:  Sending scores to one UC will be available for all UC’s to view.  No need to send to each campus. CSU (CalState)  Send to  “3594” (not a particular campus) and all 23 campuses will be able to download them.  All other colleges: Send directly to each college from www.collegeboard.org
  • ACT test scores:  UC: Sending scores to one UC will be available for all UC’s to view.  No need to send to each campus. CSU:  You need to send score(s) to each campus.  All other colleges: Send directly to each college from www.act.org.

 

Scholarships:  Be sure to check Naviance often.  We are posting new scholarships daily!  In addition, be sure to check out college websites, www.fastweb.com, and this site provided by the US Department of Labor site:  https://www.careeronestop.org/toolkit/training/find-scholarships.aspx?mc_cid=057d692882&mc_eid=ca9d9306fa

 

 JUNIORS

ACT & SAT testing:  All registrations for the official ACT or SAT are done on the testing websites not at the high schools. Each site offers free online test prep.  Be sure to designate colleges to receive your scores when you sign up for/or take the test.  This service is free for up to 4 campuses, per test date.  For more info. and to register go to  SAT www.collegeboard.org; ACT:  www.act.org

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

SENIORS 

Once you submit your college application(s), be sure to check your emails for communications from those colleges.  Many will reach out and let you know they have received and are processing your application.  This is also where you will learn if they are missing any required documentation.  IF a college sends you log in information to initiate a (prospective) student portal, BE SURE TO DO SO!  Many colleges do not send emails, they only post updates in your (prospective) student portal!  

 

Sending Mid-Year Transcripts (from Mrs. Murray, Registrar/Counseling):  If you need a Midyear Transcript sent to colleges you've applied to, please read and follow this procedure:

  • Do Not Request (mid-year transcripts) in Naviance. (1) Determine which colleges want midyear (aka 7th semester) transcripts by checking your colleges’ portal accounts. Note: All Common App (CA) colleges request a Midyear Transcript.  (2) In Naviance, go to “Colleges I’m Applying To” and print out your list of colleges. (3) Highlight or Circle the college(s) that need a Midyear Transcript.  (4) Hand the printout to the Mrs. Murray and she will send your midyear transcript accordingly.  See Mrs. Murray in Counseling with questions.  

 

Sending Test Scores   Check each campus website to learn when you need to send “official” scores.  Some use your self reported scores in their admissions evaluation, and only ask you to send your scores if you are admitted.  Knowing the practice at each college could potentially save you money.

  • College Board (SAT and/or SAT Subject Tests):  UC:  Sending scores to one UC will be available for all UC’s to view.  No need to send to each campus. CSU (CalState)  Send to  “3594” (not a particular campus) and all 23 campuses will be able to download them.  All other colleges: Send directly to each college from www.collegeboard.org
  • ACT test scores:  UC: Sending scores to one UC will be available for all UC’s to view.  No need to send to each campus. CSU:  You need to send score(s) to each campus.  All other colleges: Send directly to each college from www.act.org.

Besides, www.fastweb.com, here is another great national scholarship database site that is from the US Department of Labor:  https://www.careeronestop.org/toolkit/training/find-scholarships.aspx?mc_cid=057d692882&mc_eid=ca9d9306fa

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

Besides, www.fastweb.com, here is another great national scholarship database site that is from the US Department of Labor:  https://www.careeronestop.org/toolkit/training/find-scholarships.aspx?mc_cid=057d692882&mc_eid=ca9d9306fa

 

Counselor Letters of Recommendation:  If you are submitting college applications after the first of the year, and require a counselor letter, your counselor needs at least 3 weeks ‘working’ notice to write your letter.  (Note:  The counselor packet is found in the doc library on the home page of Naviance).

 

Once you submit your college application(s), be sure to check your emails for communications from those colleges.  Many will reach out and let you know they have received and are processing your application.  This is also where you will learn if they are missing any required documentation.  IF a college sends you log in information to initiate a (prospective) student portal, BE SURE TO DO SO!  Many colleges do not send emails, they only post updates in your (prospective) student portal!  

 

Sending Mid-Year Transcripts (from Mrs. Murray, Registrar/Counseling):  If you need a Midyear Transcript sent to colleges you've applied to, please read and follow this procedure:

  • Do Not Request (mid-year transcripts) in Naviance. (1)  Determine which colleges want midyear (aka 7th semester) transcripts by checking your colleges’ portal accounts. Note: All Common App (CA) colleges request a Midyear Transcript.  (2) In Naviance, go to “Colleges I’m Applying To” and print out your list of colleges. (3) Highlight or Circle the college(s) that need a Midyear Transcript.  (4) Hand the printout to the Mrs. Murray and she will send your midyear transcript accordingly.  Midyear Transcripts will not be available to send until mid-January.  Questions?  See Mrs. Murray in Counseling or email her via school loop.

DEADLINES FOR PRIORITY FINANCIAL AID CONSIDERATION!

 

Sending Test Scores  Be sure to check each campus website to learn when you need to send “official” scores!  Some use your self reported scores in their admissions evaluation, and only ask you to send your scores if you are admitted!   Knowing the practice at each college could potentially save you some money.

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

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.

 

Click here to find class dates at SRVUSD schools.  Register here. Reservations are required.

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

SENIORS 

Counselor Letters of Recommendation:  If you are submitting college applications after the first of the year, and require a counselor letter, your counselor needs at least 3 weeks ‘working’ notice to write your letter.  (Note:  The counselor packet is found in the doc library on the home page of Naviance). Keep in mind that counselors are also on winter break in late December and this vacation time does not count in the 3 weeks ‘working’ notice needed.  Be sure to get your packets to them ASAP if you haven’t already.

 

Once you submit your college application(s), be sure to check your emails for communications from those colleges.  Many will reach out and let you know they have received and are processing your application.  This is also where you will learn if they are missing any required documentation.  IF a college sends you log in information to initiate a (prospective) student portal, BE SURE TO DO SO!!  Many colleges do not send emails…they only post updates in your (prospective) student portal!  Be informed!

 

Sending Mid-Year Transcripts (from Mrs. Murray, Registrar):  If you need a Midyear Transcript sent to colleges you've applied to, please read and follow this procedure, i.e. Do Not Request (mid-year transcripts) in Naviance):  (1)  Determine which colleges want Midyear (aka 7th semester) Transcripts by checking your colleges’ portal accounts. [Note: All Common App (CA) colleges request a Midyear Transcript.]  (2) In Naviance, go to “Colleges I’m Applying To” and print out your list of colleges. (3) Highlight or Circle the college(s) that need a Midyear Transcript.  (4) Hand the printout to the Registrar in Counseling and she will send your Midyear Transcript accordingly.  Note:  Midyear Transcripts will not be available to send until mid-January.  Questions?  See Mrs. Murray. 

 

FAFSA – OPEN NOW  - Free Application Federal Student Aid: The FAFSA is now open for seniors entering college fall of 2018.  https://fafsa.ed.gov/   Some colleges may ask students to also submit a form called a “CSS Profile” in order to be considered for need based aid.  Download this form from:  https://cssprofile.collegeboard.org/

 

Seniors! Some CSU’s have extended their application deadlines beyond Nov. 30th per the Cal State Apply website.  Go to:  https://www2.calstate.edu/apply/Pages/application-dates-deadlines.aspx to learn more.  For example, Cal State Monterey Bay's Fall 2018 application deadline has been extended to December 15, 2017.  Be sure to click on the “See Notice” link to learn which programs are still accepting applications.  Then, go to https://www2.calstate.edu/apply to apply to any of the open campuses/programs.  If you have questions or concerns, please contact the admissions office at each university.

 

Sending Test Scores

(Be sure to check each campus website to learn when you need to send “official” scores!  Some use your self reported scores in their admissions evaluation, and only ask you to send your scores if you are admitted!   (Knowing the practice at each college could potentially save  you some $$ as you pay a fee to send your test scores to colleges!)

 

  • College Board (SAT and/or SAT Subject Tests):  UC:  Sending scores to one UC will be available for all UC’s to view.  No need to send to each campus. CSU (CalState)  Send to  “3594” (not a particular campus) and all 23 campuses will be able to download them.  All other colleges: Send directly to each college from www.collegeboard.org

 

  • ACT test scores:  UC: Sending scores to one UC will be available for all UC’s to view.  No need to send to each campus. CSU:  You need to send score(s) to each campus.  All other colleges: Send directly to each college from www.act.org.

 

CSU e-learning Math Course for  seniors who’s CAASP EAP status is "Standard Met: Conditionally Ready for Mathematics college-level coursework" (for students applying to a CSU): This course is intended for senior students who are not in a math class senior year; but would like to improve their readiness for college level math courses while still in high school.  Cost is $20.  See more information and register at:  https://www.csumathsuccess.org/elearning or see the School Loop posting. 

 

Scholarships:  Scholarships are added regularly in Naviance.  Seniors:  Check your Naviance accounts for the latest scholarship list!   Some recently posted scholarships to consider include: 

  • 3 need based scholarships being offered through Assistance League of Diablo Valley. One scholarship is for high school students attending a 2 or 4 year college program, one scholarship is specifically for foster youth and the third is called Spotlight on You and is for students attending a 2 year or vocation/technology school

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. 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.

WEEKLY BULLETIN 11/9/17

 

SENIORS:  If you haven’t ordered your cap/gown and graduation announcements yet, you can only order these online at Jostens.com (or) by mailing your order directly to Jostens.  The final deadline to place your grad order is TOMORROW, Friday, November 10th.

November 13– 17 SRV will be observing Transgender Awareness Week. This is an opportunity for our school to raise awareness and visibility of transgender and gender nonconforming people, and address the issues the community faces. Respecting a person’s identity is often the most important thing that you can do. With visibility comes understanding. We invite you to be an ally to the Transgender community.

 

Dodgeball Sign-ups will be on Tuesday November 14 at lunch in the Quad! 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.) There will be room for approximately 20 total teams. Once the teams are chosen, the captains meeting will be held at lunch in R16 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! 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.

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.

It would be awesome if you could donate any of those items or socks! All items can be brought to the attendance office, or R16. For more information about the Salute's 6th Annual Day of Giving Thanks click on http://salutemarinabay.com/day-of-giving-thanks-2017

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.

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.

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!

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.
