TRAFFIX

The TRAFFIX bus program is entering its 9th year of service, providing safeconvenient and affordable transportation for students. The program has helped reduce the number of vehicle trips during school pick-ups and drop-offs and significantly reduces the carbon footprint in Danville and San Ramon every year.

Parents are saving time and money and kids love riding the bus. This helps your student build confidence and independence while doing a great service to our community in getting cars off the road during rush hour.

For the 2018 – 2019 School Year, the SR-21 bus will serve San Ramon Valley High School.

You can look at the SR-21 route here.

 

Passes for the 2018 - 2019 school year go on sale on April 23, 2018 at 7:00 AM and will be sold on a first come, first served basis.  The price for a High School Bus Pass is $335.

The bus at San Ramon Valley High is expected to sell out.

We’ve added more Start Smart classes!

 

Wednesday, August 15th

California High School Theater

Register HERE

 

This Start Smart class is part of the San Ramon Valley’s Street Smarts program and is a partnership between CHP, Street Smarts, and the San Ramon Valley Unified School District (SRVUSD). SRVUSD students AND their parent/guardian MUST attend a CHP Start Smart class in order to be eligible for a parking permit.

Start Smart is a FREE two hour highly impactful interactive traffic safety class designed for drivers or soon to be drivers 15-19 years of age and their parents to discuss the serious laws, obligations, responsibilities, and family expectations that are part of driving a vehicle. Despite safer vehicles, better roads, and countless driving programs, the numbers of young drivers who have lost their lives due to traffic collisions have remained fairly constant. However, these deaths and injuries can be substantially reduced by eliminating high-risk behaviors.

Upon attending the class, students will receive a certificate of completion and it’s recommended that students hold on to this certificate.

Parent:

Dear SRVHS Families,

We have recently experienced a glitch in our SRVHS PTSA opt-in mailing list.  In short, across the period of a few days, many current subscribers were unintentionally unsubscribed en masse. You did nothing wrong if you received a notice from the SRVHS eNews Communication List.  We have found a solution to this issue, but it does require you to opt back in. Unfortunately, due to the nature of an "opt-in" mailing list, you must subscribe personally, regardless of whether you were unsubscribed intentionally or not.  Please click here to check your subscription, or re-subscribe if necessary.

 

We are using this particular form of communication extensively at this time of the school year since there are so many things happening on and around SRV as the school year comes to a close. SOME of the types of information you might expect to see coming from this source are as follows, but not limited to:

Graduation Information

 

Grad Night Information: as you might expect, the bulk of this info is arriving in your inboxes now! 

"Class of (2018, 19, 20, 21, 22)

"News: Parent Reps from each individual Class to inform you of information specific to your grade only.  

Academic Information

Counseling/Career Center Information

This list goes on!  

 

Please take a moment and click here to re-subscribe or double check that you are already subscribed. I apologize for the inconvenience, but we do not want you to miss out on any pertinent SRVHS updates! 

 

Go Wolves!

 

Parent Volunteers Needed to Help with Textbook Returns

Parents please use this Signup Genius link if you can help our Textbook Clerk, Linda Ficenec, with textbook returns during Finals Week.  The Textbook Office is very busy during this time and your help is greatly appreciated! Thank you!

 

https://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040a4caaac2fa02-parent1

 

Every year at this time we ask our parent community to “pay it forward” and volunteer to make grad night and graduation a memorable experience for our graduating seniors and their families. Part of what makes SRVHS so special is our community spirit and heart.  If you have had or will have a graduating senior from SRV, you know how important this is.  Keeping our kids safe on grad night is a long-standing tradition, and it’s a gift we give our kids and each other. We can’t do it without all of you.

 

Please sign up to help us make grad night safe and graduation memorable by giving the gift of your time to keep our tradition going.  Last but not least, thank you for being the most supportive and inclusive parent community.  Let’s have fun and do this together!

 

With Gratitude,

 

Shelley Clark and Lisa Hostelly,

San Ramon High Academic Boosters has launched the 2018 spring fundraising campaign.  It is our hope that strong support during this campaign will assist us in planning the school’s master schedule for the fall. 

 

Why should you donate? 

Academic Boosters is our school “Ed Fund”.  It is the only group on campus that adds extra sections or class periods to the master schedule.   This important benefit is unique to our school, because it helps us reduce class size and allows us to offer a variety of electives that are not otherwise covered by state or local funding.  Every dollar raised here, stays here at SRV.  Last year Academic Boosters were able to give me 16 extra class sections to add to the schedule.  This year they would like to fund 18 sections, but they can’t do it without your support.

 

While the bulk of the Academic Booster budget (80%) goes toward adding extra sections, the remainder of the budget supports important programs such as:  College and Career Center staffing, after school library hours, free tutoring labs, SAT/ACT test prep, individual scholarships and club grants at SRV.

 

Please help us plan for the 2018 academic year by donating now.    Our school is only as strong as the community that supports us. 

Suggested per student donation is $495.  Online donation link can be found here:

 

DONATE NOW TO SRV ED FUND or by sending a check (preferred) to:

SRVHS Academic Boosters

P.O. Box 1004 

Danville CA 94526 

 

You may email them at: srvhsab@hotmail.com  for any questions or suggestions.  They also accept corporate matching funds.  Thank you for your support.

 

CALLING ALL SENIOR PARENTS!  
GRAD NIGHT 2018, ONLY WEEKS LEFT!

 

NOW IS YOUR CHANCE TO GET INVOLVED!

Preparations for Grad Night 2018 is in full swing!  Drop by our work site at 12647 Alcosta Blvd., Bishop Ranch 15, Suite 100, San Ramon to see our progress.  There are still a few areas that we need help from you to fill.  As they say, “Many hands make light work.”  Many of these do not require a large time commitment.  We only have  weeks left to create the most memorable grad night!

Here are the areas we could use your assistance:

Outdoor Activities Area (Design):  Design the area where our kids play games and outdoor activities during the evening.  Our incredible design chairs already have some great ideas for this project.  Just need a fun loving parent to implement them.


Massage Room (Design):  Create the indoor oasis for our students to relax and get a massage after a hard day at graduation.  Again, work with our amazing design chairs to bring their design to life.


Casino (Activities):  Work with one of our most experienced parents at casino activities to create the perfect poker tournament and casino activities for our kid card sharks on their special evening. 


Food Committee (Hospitality): Lend a hand to our great food chair to help organize the food donations and logistics to give our kids a night of incredible cuisine.


Donations/Prizes (Admin): Our donation and prize chairs need help with securing and choosing prizes for the raffles, poker tournament and gift bags.  Let’s give the kids some things to take with them to remember this special evening.


Electrical/Technology (Design): Someone to interface with our AV company to make sure all things electrical are connected properly, and someone with knowledge of technology to help with the movie theater, dance room and gaming rooms

SENIORS:

Senior Exit Survey and Final Transcript: Every senior is required by the District to complete a Senior Exit Survey.  During the survey process, you will also complete your request your final transcript. The survey is found in the student’s Naviance Portal/About Me Tab/Survey link (on the left hand side). Please be sure to complete this survey asap (seniors have received several emails about this). Note: this survey is different than the brief google form sent out asking about post SRVHS plans in order to be included in the yearbook insert.

 

Remember to follow all instructions from the Colleges where you have accepted your admissions offer and plan to attend in the fall.  Some colleges might request you to take math or English placement tests, submit mid-year transcripts, etc., and all will want a year end transcript which you will request via your Senior Exit survey.  MEET ALL DOCUMENT REQUESTS AND DEADLINES!  AND KEEP UP YOUR SENIOR GRADES. 

 

Are you attending DVC, Las Positas or another community college?   Seniors attending community college should be connecting with that college’s admission office directly to ensure they are enrolled, have completed any necessary assessment tests or orientations,  and are registered (or have a registration date) to enroll in summer/fall classes.   Contact the colleges’ admissions departments with questions.  They are there to help you!

 

CSU Bound: CSU’s require students meet a guideline for their placement into Math and English. Some students may be exempt based on SAT/ACT scores, CAASPP scores, and/or based on SRVHS coursework.  If a CSU has indicated that you need to complete this requirement, follow up accordingly.

 

If you are on a wait list, watch your email for important updates from the college.    Many schools are notifying students about the status of their wait lists and/or requesting follow up from students.  Others are working on their enrollment numbers and may take a while to reach out to you.  Be patient, but continue to move forward with enrollment at the college where you were admitted, and submitted your “intent to register” decision. 

 

Still trying to figure out post SRVHS plans? Many schools have rolling admissions which means they are still accepting applications and have great programs in business, architecture, health sciences, engineering, dance/theater, journalism/communications, veterinary and more.  Here are two resources for finding colleges who offer later application deadlines and may still be accepting applications for fall 2018.  http://www.regionaladmissions.com/racc-partners.html  OR https://bigfuture.collegeboard.org/get-in/applying-101/late-applications    

 

Bed Bath and Beyond - Discounted Shopping night for your Dorm Needs 7/22/18!

JUNIORS

ACT/SAT Testing: If you haven’t done so already, you should consider taking the ACT or SAT in June. Sign up now at www.collegeboard.org (SAT) or www.act.org.

 

Academic Boosters will be posting a TEST PREP calendar on their web page for 2018-2019 in early June. They sponsor college education workshops, SAT and ACT mock test prep opportunities, college essay writing workshops and more throughout the year.  Stay tuned and look to sign up for practice opportunities during your senior year. 

 

College Applications 2018 -2019:  The College and Career will send information to all of our Junior’s at the end of the school year regarding the upcoming college admission process and what items you can work on, or explore, over the summer months. We’ll be clearing outdated information and will be moving the class of 2019 into the Senior position. Over the summer, the www.srvhs.net – counseling - college and career center is a good reference for college information you might be looking for.

 

Types of College Applications:  When you are reviewing a college website, be sure to take note of the type of application(s) they accept and application requirements to help you organize your application strategy.  The 3 types listed below require essays/personal statements/personal insight questions, so by getting a jump on brainstorming their topics and creating rough drafts, you can get a jump on the process over the summer.

TRAFFIX

The TRAFFIX bus program is entering its 9th year of service, providing safeconvenient and affordable transportation for students. The program has helped reduce the number of vehicle trips during school pick-ups and drop-offs and significantly reduces the carbon footprint in Danville and San Ramon every year.

Parents are saving time and money and kids love riding the bus. This helps your student build confidence and independence while doing a great service to our community in getting cars off the road during rush hour.

 

For the 2018 – 2019 School Year, the SR-21 bus will serve San Ramon Valley High School.

You can look at the SR-21 route here.

 

Passes for the 2018 - 2019 school year go on sale on April 23, 2018 at 7:00 AM and will be sold on a first come, first served basis.  The price for a High School Bus Pass is $335.

The bus at San Ramon Valley High is expected to sell out.

 

Visit http://RideTRAFFIX.com early to purchase your pass starting April 23rd!

Questions? Call 925-866-8739 or email manager@ridetraffix.com.

We’ve added more Start Smart classes!

 

Wednesday, August 15th

California High School Theater

Register HERE

 

This Start Smart class is part of the San Ramon Valley’s Street Smarts program and is a partnership between CHP, Street Smarts, and the San Ramon Valley Unified School District (SRVUSD). SRVUSD students AND their parent/guardian MUST attend a CHP Start Smart class in order to be eligible for a parking permit.

 

Start Smart is a FREE two hour highly impactful interactive traffic safety class designed for drivers or soon to be drivers 15-19 years of age and their parents to discuss the serious laws, obligations, responsibilities, and family expectations that are part of driving a vehicle. Despite safer vehicles, better roads, and countless driving programs, the numbers of young drivers who have lost their lives due to traffic collisions have remained fairly constant. However, these deaths and injuries can be substantially reduced by eliminating high-risk behaviors.

 

Upon attending the class, students will receive a certificate of completion and it’s recommended that students hold on to this certificate.

Every year at this time we ask our parent community to “pay it forward” and volunteer to make grad night and graduation a memorable experience for our graduating seniors and their families. Part of what makes SRVHS so special is our community spirit and heart.  If you have had or will have a graduating senior from SRV, you know how important this is.  Keeping our kids safe on grad night is a long-standing tradition, and it’s a gift we give our kids and each other. We can’t do it without all of you.

 

Please sign up to help us make grad night safe and graduation memorable by giving the gift of your time to keep our tradition going.  Last but not least, thank you for being the most supportive and inclusive parent community.  Let’s have fun and do this together!

 

With Gratitude,

On Friday, May 18, 2018 during lunch, SRVHS will be holding a College Athlete Luncheon for the 2017-18 school year sponsored by Athletic Boosters and Leadership.  All student-athletes who are going on to play college athletics regardless of division are invited to attend. In order to recognize all of the eligible students, I am reaching out to parents and coaches of students of the class of 2018 to gather information. Please send me an email message with your student's name, the name of the college, and the sport they will be playing by Monday, May 7th, 2018 at gochs@srvusd.net so that we may include your student in the SRVHS event. Thank you.

 

Mr. Ochs

 

We are looking for 8 adults (from any grade) to help chaperone part of the Senior Ball at the California Academy of Science's Aquarium portion of the evening from 8 - 10:30 on May 19th. Detailed Instructions given at the Academy, and food and drinks will be provided. Sign up here: www.SignUpGenius.com/go/10C0E49ABAD2CA64-2018

 

San Ramon High Academic Boosters has launched the 2018 spring fundraising campaign.  It is our hope that strong support during this campaign will assist us in planning the school’s master schedule for the fall. 

 

Why should you donate? 

Academic Boosters is our school “Ed Fund”.  It is the only group on campus that adds extra sections or class periods to the master schedule.   This important benefit is unique to our school, because it helps us reduce class size and allows us to offer a variety of electives that are not otherwise covered by state or local funding.  Every dollar raised here, stays here at SRV.  Last year Academic Boosters were able to give me 16 extra class sections to add to the schedule.  This year they would like to fund 18 sections, but they can’t do it without your support.

 

While the bulk of the Academic Booster budget (80%) goes toward adding extra sections, the remainder of the budget supports important programs such as:  College and Career Center staffing, after school library hours, free tutoring labs, SAT/ACT test prep, individual scholarships and club grants at SRV.

 

Please help us plan for the 2018 academic year by donating now.    Our school is only as strong as the community that supports us. 

Suggested per student donation is $495.  Online donation link can be found here:

 

DONATE NOW TO SRV ED FUND or by sending a check (preferred) to:

SRVHS Academic Boosters

P.O. Box 1004 

Danville CA 94526 

 

You may email them at: srvhsab@hotmail.com  for any questions or suggestions.  They also accept corporate matching funds.  Thank you for your support.

 

CALLING ALL SENIOR PARENTS!  
GRAD NIGHT 2018, ONLY WEEKS LEFT!

 

NOW IS YOUR CHANCE TO GET INVOLVED!

Preparations for Grad Night 2018 is in full swing!  Drop by our work site at 12647 Alcosta Blvd., Bishop Ranch 15, Suite 100, San Ramon to see our progress.  There are still a few areas that we need help from you to fill.  As they say, “Many hands make light work.”  Many of these do not require a large time commitment.  We only have  weeks left to create the most memorable grad night!

Here are the areas we could use your assistance:

Outdoor Activities Area (Design):  Design the area where our kids play games and outdoor activities during the evening.  Our incredible design chairs already have some great ideas for this project.  Just need a fun loving parent to implement them.


Massage Room (Design):  Create the indoor oasis for our students to relax and get a massage after a hard day at graduation.  Again, work with our amazing design chairs to bring their design to life.


Casino (Activities):  Work with one of our most experienced parents at casino activities to create the perfect poker tournament and casino activities for our kid card sharks on their special evening. 


Food Committee (Hospitality): Lend a hand to our great food chair to help organize the food donations and logistics to give our kids a night of incredible cuisine.


Donations/Prizes (Admin): Our donation and prize chairs need help with securing and choosing prizes for the raffles, poker tournament and gift bags.  Let’s give the kids some things to take with them to remember this special evening.


Electrical/Technology (Design): Someone to interface with our AV company to make sure all things electrical are connected properly, and someone with knowledge of technology to help with the movie theater, dance room and gaming rooms

SENIORS 

Scholarships : More posted on Naviance (Colleges Tab) 

  1. Francis T. Harris Scholarship (for Charlotte Wood Alum) –$1000, due 5/14/18 

Senior Exit Survey and Final Transcript: Every senior is required by the District to complete a Senior Exit Survey by the District. This is also where you will request your final transcript. This survey is found in the student’s Naviance Portal/About Me Tab/Survey link (on the left hand side). Please be sure to complete this survey asap (seniors have received several emails about this). Note: this survey is different than the brief google form sent out asking about post SRVHS plans in order to be included in the yearbook insert.

 

Remember to follow all instructions from the Colleges where you have accepted your admissions offer and plan to attend in the fall.  Some colleges might request you to take math or English placement tests, submit mid-year transcripts, etc., and all will want a year end transcript which you will request via your Senior Exit survey.  MEET ALL DOCUMENT REQUESTS AND DEADLINES!  AND KEEP UP YOUR SENIOR GRADES.  SENIOR GRADES DO MATTER!

 

Are you attending DVC or another community college? Seniors attending community college should be connecting with that college’s admission office directly to ensure they are enrolled, have completed any necessary placement classes and are registered (or have a registration date) to enroll in summer/fall classes.   Contact the colleges’ Admissions departments with questions.  They are there to help you!

 

CSU Bound: CSU’s require students meet a guideline for their placement into Math and English. Some students may be exempt based on SAT/ACT scores, CAASPP scores, and/or based on SRVHS coursework.  If a CSU has indicated that you need to complete this requirement, follow up accordingly.

 

Wait Lists:  Some colleges use wait lists as part of their enrollment strategy.  If you remain on a wait list, be sure to check your portals and emails from those colleges.  If you are offered a space at your wait listed

college,  and you accept their offer of admission, you must  withdraw your enrollment commitment to the college where you committed.  

 

Still trying to figure out post SRVHS plans? Many schools have rolling admissions which means they are still accepting applications and have great programs in business, architecture, health sciences, engineering, dance/theater, journalism/communications, veterinary and more.  See posting on school loop from Salve Regina U in Rhode Island, AND U of Arizona, plus here is a link to a list of other out of state schools still accepting applications:  http://www.regionaladmissions.com/racc-partners.html .  An additional list may be found on College Board’s website at:  https://bigfuture.collegeboard.org/get-in/applying-101/late-applications    

 

JUNIORS

ACT/SAT Testing: If you haven’t done so already, you should consider taking the ACT or SAT in June. Sign up now at www.collegeboard.org (SAT) or www.act.org.

 

Academic Boosters will be posting a TEST PREP calendar on their web page for 2018-2019 in early June. They sponsor college education workshops, SAT and ACT mock test prep opportunities, college essay writing workshops and more throughout the year.  Stay tuned and look to sign up for practice opportunities during your senior year.

 

College Applications 2018 -2019:  The College and Career will send information to all of our Junior’s at the end of the school year regarding the upcoming college admission process and what items you can work on, or explore, over the summer months. We’ll be clearing outdated information and will be moving the class of 2019 into the Senior position. Over the summer, the www.srvhs.net – counseling - college and career center is a good reference for college information you might be looking for.

TRAFFIX

The TRAFFIX bus program is entering its 9th year of service, providing safeconvenient and affordable transportation for students. The program has helped reduce the number of vehicle trips during school pick-ups and drop-offs and significantly reduces the carbon footprint in Danville and San Ramon every year.

 

Parents are saving time and money and kids love riding the bus. This helps your student build confidence and independence while doing a great service to our community in getting cars off the road during rush hour.

 

For the 2018 – 2019 School Year, the SR-21 bus will serve San Ramon Valley High School.

You can look at the SR-21 route here.

 

Passes for the 2018 - 2019 school year go on sale on April 23, 2018 at 7:00 AM and will be sold on a first come, first served basis.  The price for a High School Bus Pass is $335.

The bus at San Ramon Valley High is expected to sell out.

Visit http://RideTRAFFIX.com early to purchase your pass starting April 23rd!

Questions? Call 925-866-8739 or email manager@ridetraffix.com.

This Start Smart class is part of the San Ramon Valley’s Street Smarts program and is a partnership between CHP, Street Smarts, and the San Ramon Valley Unified School District (SRVUSD). SRVUSD students AND their parent/guardian MUST attend a CHP Start Smart class in order to be eligible for a parking permit.

 

Start Smart is a FREE two hour highly impactful interactive traffic safety class designed for drivers or soon to be drivers 15-19 years of age and their parents to discuss the serious laws, obligations, responsibilities, and family expectations that are part of driving a vehicle. Despite safer vehicles, better roads, and countless driving programs, the numbers of young drivers who have lost their lives due to traffic collisions have remained fairly constant. However, these deaths and injuries can be substantially reduced by eliminating high-risk behaviors.

 

Upon attending the class, students will receive a certificate of completion and it’s recommended that students hold on to this certificate.

Parent:

 

Every year at this time we ask our parent community to “pay it forward” and volunteer to make grad night and graduation a memorable experience for our graduating seniors and their families. Part of what makes SRVHS so special is our community spirit and heart.  If you have had or will have a graduating senior from SRV, you know how important this is.  Keeping our kids safe on grad night is a long-standing tradition, and it’s a gift we give our kids and each other. We can’t do it without all of you.

 

Please sign up to help us make grad night safe and graduation memorable by giving the gift of your time to keep our tradition going.  Last but not least, thank you for being the most supportive and inclusive parent community.  Let’s have fun and do this together!

 

With Gratitude,

 

Shelley Clark and Lisa Hostelly,

On Friday, May 18, 2018 during lunch, SRVHS will be holding a College Athlete Luncheon for the 2017-18 school year sponsored by Athletic Boosters and Leadership.  All student-athletes who are going on to play college athletics regardless of division are invited to attend. In order to recognize all of the eligible students, I am reaching out to parents and coaches of students of the class of 2018 to gather information. Please send me an email message with your student's name, the name of the college, and the sport they will be playing by Monday, May 7th, 2018 at gochs@srvusd.net so that we may include your student in the SRVHS event. Thank you.

 

Mr. Ochs

 

We are looking for 8 adults (from any grade) to help chaperone part of the Senior Ball at the California Academy of Science's Aquarium portion of the evening from 8 - 10:30 on May 19th. Detailed Instructions given at the Academy, and food and drinks will be provided. Sign up here: www.SignUpGenius.com/go/10C0E49ABAD2CA64-2018

 

San Ramon High Academic Boosters has launched the 2018 spring fundraising campaign.  It is our hope that strong support during this campaign will assist us in planning the school’s master schedule for the fall. 

 

Why should you donate? 

Academic Boosters is our school “Ed Fund”.  It is the only group on campus that adds extra sections or class periods to the master schedule.   This important benefit is unique to our school, because it helps us reduce class size and allows us to offer a variety of electives that are not otherwise covered by state or local funding.  Every dollar raised here, stays here at SRV.  Last year Academic Boosters were able to give me 16 extra class sections to add to the schedule.  This year they would like to fund 18 sections, but they can’t do it without your support.

 

While the bulk of the Academic Booster budget (80%) goes toward adding extra sections, the remainder of the budget supports important programs such as:  College and Career Center staffing, after school library hours, free tutoring labs, SAT/ACT test prep, individual scholarships and club grants at SRV.

 

Please help us plan for the 2018 academic year by donating now.    Our school is only as strong as the community that supports us. 

Suggested per student donation is $495.  Online donation link can be found here:

 

DONATE NOW TO SRV ED FUND or by sending a check (preferred) to:

SRVHS Academic Boosters

P.O. Box 1004 

Danville CA 94526 

 

You may email them at: srvhsab@hotmail.com  for any questions or suggestions.  They also accept corporate matching funds.  Thank you for your support.

 

CALLING ALL SENIOR PARENTS!  
GRAD NIGHT 2018, ONLY WEEKS LEFT!

 

NOW IS YOUR CHANCE TO GET INVOLVED!

Preparations for Grad Night 2018 is in full swing!  Drop by our work site at 12647 Alcosta Blvd., Bishop Ranch 15, Suite 100, San Ramon to see our progress.  There are still a few areas that we need help from you to fill.  As they say, “Many hands make light work.”  Many of these do not require a large time commitment.  We only have  weeks left to create the most memorable grad night!

Here are the areas we could use your assistance:

Outdoor Activities Area (Design):  Design the area where our kids play games and outdoor activities during the evening.  Our incredible design chairs already have some great ideas for this project.  Just need a fun loving parent to implement them.


Massage Room (Design):  Create the indoor oasis for our students to relax and get a massage after a hard day at graduation.  Again, work with our amazing design chairs to bring their design to life.


Casino (Activities):  Work with one of our most experienced parents at casino activities to create the perfect poker tournament and casino activities for our kid card sharks on their special evening. 


Food Committee (Hospitality): Lend a hand to our great food chair to help organize the food donations and logistics to give our kids a night of incredible cuisine.


Donations/Prizes (Admin): Our donation and prize chairs need help with securing and choosing prizes for the raffles, poker tournament and gift bags.  Let’s give the kids some things to take with them to remember this special evening.


Electrical/Technology (Design): Someone to interface with our AV company to make sure all things electrical are connected properly, and someone with knowledge of technology to help with the movie theater, dance room and gaming rooms

May 12th Diablo Valley College Viking SEA Day at DVC’s Pleasant Hill campus. Seniors: this event is for high school seniors that have applied to DVC for the summer or fall semester, and have yet to complete the steps to enroll (online orientation, assessment, Counseling-095).  The day offers the opportunity to complete the steps, and to actually register for summer and/or fall classes. Registration for this event is required, as we will be preparing a checklist for each student that will note what items have been completed, as well as those to take care of on that Saturday.  If a student has not registered for the upcoming terms, then that is the only step they will be able to complete on the 12th, as the application processing takes several hours (upload from Open CCC to our system, username/portal access is generated, etc.).   RSVP link to the 5/12 event registration page is http://www.dvc.edu/enrollment/welcome/sea-day.html (also posted on school loop news).   Students must RSVP by 5/8 or earlier.

 

New DVC Assessment Tool : MMAP (Multiple Measures Assessment Plan) Now Available Online! Graduating Seniors intending to enroll at DVC will need to complete their Spring 2018 and Summer 2018 applications to DVC as well as the online orientation. The next step is to complete an assessment, and the attached information will assist you to complete it on line using the MMAP online feature. If, after completing the multiple measures, you still wish to take the traditional assessments (Math and/or English) to adjust your placement, you may make an appointment at the DVC website at http://www.dvc.edu/enrollment/assessment/index.html#

 

May 13 – 17th Exploring College Options is a special recruitment program sponsored by the undergraduate admissions offices of five of the country's leading universities: Duke U., Georgetown, Harvard, U Penn and Stanford.   At each event, representatives from the five universities will conduct brief slide presentations about their institution and answer your questions about the sometimes-mystifying world of competitive college admissions. For a complete list of presentation locations, dates and times AND to RSVP go to: http://www.exploringcollegeoptions.org/

 

Please remember to do your Senior Exit Survey!  Within that survey, you will be updating your Naviance account with admission and commitment decisions.  This information helps build our database of college application history for future students (think “scattergrams” and “acceptance history” that aided you in your search!)   Also, as soon as you make your college decision, please stop by the College and Career Center to add your  on our map in the College and Career Center! 

 

CSU Bound: CSU’s require students meet a guideline for their placement into Math and English. Some students may be exempt based on SAT/ACT scores, CAASPP scores, and/or based on SRVHS coursework.  If a CSU has indicated that you need to complete this requirement, follow up accordingly.

 

Wait Lists:  Some colleges use wait lists as part of their enrollment strategy.  If you are on a wait list, be sure to check your portals and emails from those colleges.  If you are offered a space at your wait listed

college,  and you accept their offer of admission, you must  withdraw your commitment to college where you committed to enroll on May 1. Still trying to figure out post SRVHS plans? Many schools have rolling admissions which means they are still accepting applications and have great programs in business, architecture, health sciences, engineering, dance/theater, journalism/communications, veterinary and more.  See posting on school loop from Salve Regina U in Rhode Island, plus here is a link to a list of out of state schools still accepting applications:  http://www.regionaladmissions.com/racc-partners.html  and another list may be found on College Board’s website at:  https://bigfuture.collegeboard.org/get-in/applying-101/late-applications    

 

JUNIORS

College Information Evening (follow up from May 2):  The power point presentation from the May 2nd College Information Evening is posted on the Counseling home page on the school website.  Here you will find a lot of great information about the college application process, that will be very beneficial for students planning to attend community college or 4 year colleges/universities in fall 2019. 

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.  See C & CC website for more information regarding reporting test scores to colleges.  For more testing information and to register go to  SAT www.collegeboard.org; ACT:  www.act.org

TRAFFIX

The TRAFFIX bus program is entering its 9th year of service, providing safeconvenient and affordable transportation for students. The program has helped reduce the number of vehicle trips during school pick-ups and drop-offs and significantly reduces the carbon footprint in Danville and San Ramon every year.

 

Parents are saving time and money and kids love riding the bus. This helps your student build confidence and independence while doing a great service to our community in getting cars off the road during rush hour.

For the 2018 – 2019 School Year, the SR-21 bus will serve San Ramon Valley High School.

You can look at the SR-21 route here.

 

Passes for the 2018 - 2019 school year go on sale on April 23, 2018 at 7:00 AM and will be sold on a first come, first served basis.  The price for a High School Bus Pass is $335.

The bus at San Ramon Valley High is expected to sell out.

This Start Smart class is part of the San Ramon Valley’s Street Smarts program and is a partnership between CHP, Street Smarts, and the San Ramon Valley Unified School District (SRVUSD). SRVUSD students AND their parent/guardian MUST attend a CHP Start Smart class in order to be eligible for a parking permit.

 

Start Smart is a FREE two hour highly impactful interactive traffic safety class designed for drivers or soon to be drivers 15-19 years of age and their parents to discuss the serious laws, obligations, responsibilities, and family expectations that are part of driving a vehicle. Despite safer vehicles, better roads, and countless driving programs, the numbers of young drivers who have lost their lives due to traffic collisions have remained fairly constant. However, these deaths and injuries can be substantially reduced by eliminating high-risk behaviors.

Upon attending the class, students will receive a certificate of completion and it’s recommended that students hold on to this certificate.

Parent:

 

Every year at this time we ask our parent community to “pay it forward” and volunteer to make grad night and graduation a memorable experience for our graduating seniors and their families. Part of what makes SRVHS so special is our community spirit and heart.  If you have had or will have a graduating senior from SRV, you know how important this is.  Keeping our kids safe on grad night is a long-standing tradition, and it’s a gift we give our kids and each other. We can’t do it without all of you.

 

Please sign up to help us make grad night safe and graduation memorable by giving the gift of your time to keep our tradition going.  Last but not least, thank you for being the most supportive and inclusive parent community.  Let’s have fun and do this together!

 

With Gratitude,

On Friday, May 18, 2018 during lunch, SRVHS will be holding a College Athlete Luncheon for the 2017-18 school year sponsored by Athletic Boosters and Leadership.  All student-athletes who are going on to play college athletics regardless of division are invited to attend. In order to recognize all of the eligible students, I am reaching out to parents and coaches of students of the class of 2018 to gather information. Please send me an email message with your student's name, the name of the college, and the sport they will be playing by Monday, May 7th, 2018 at gochs@srvusd.net so that we may include your student in the SRVHS event. Thank you.

 

Mr. Ochs

 

We are looking for 8 adults (from any grade) to help chaperone part of the Senior Ball at the California Academy of Science's Aquarium portion of the evening from 8 - 10:30 on May 19th.

San Ramon High Academic Boosters has launched the 2018 spring fundraising campaign.  It is our hope that strong support during this campaign will assist us in planning the school’s master schedule for the fall. 

 

Why should you donate? 

Academic Boosters is our school “Ed Fund”.  It is the only group on campus that adds extra sections or class periods to the master schedule.   This important benefit is unique to our school, because it helps us reduce class size and allows us to offer a variety of electives that are not otherwise covered by state or local funding.  Every dollar raised here, stays here at SRV.  Last year Academic Boosters were able to give me 16 extra class sections to add to the schedule.  This year they would like to fund 18 sections, but they can’t do it without your support.

 

While the bulk of the Academic Booster budget (80%) goes toward adding extra sections, the remainder of the budget supports important programs such as:  College and Career Center staffing, after school library hours, free tutoring labs, SAT/ACT test prep, individual scholarships and club grants at SRV.

 

Please help us plan for the 2018 academic year by donating now.    Our school is only as strong as the community that supports us. 

Suggested per student donation is $495.  Online donation link can be found here:

 

DONATE NOW TO SRV ED FUND or by sending a check (preferred) to:

SRVHS Academic Boosters

P.O. Box 1004 

Danville CA 94526 

 

You may email them at: srvhsab@hotmail.com  for any questions or suggestions.  They also accept corporate matching funds.  Thank you for your support.

 

CALLING ALL SENIOR PARENTS!  
GRAD NIGHT 2018, ONLY WEEKS LEFT!

 

NOW IS YOUR CHANCE TO GET INVOLVED!

Preparations for Grad Night 2018 is in full swing!  Drop by our work site at 12647 Alcosta Blvd., Bishop Ranch 15, Suite 100, San Ramon to see our progress.  There are still a few areas that we need help from you to fill.  As they say, “Many hands make light work.”  Many of these do not require a large time commitment.  We only have  weeks left to create the most memorable grad night!

Here are the areas we could use your assistance:

Outdoor Activities Area (Design):  Design the area where our kids play games and outdoor activities during the evening.  Our incredible design chairs already have some great ideas for this project.  Just need a fun loving parent to implement them.


Massage Room (Design):  Create the indoor oasis for our students to relax and get a massage after a hard day at graduation.  Again, work with our amazing design chairs to bring their design to life.


Casino (Activities):  Work with one of our most experienced parents at casino activities to create the perfect poker tournament and casino activities for our kid card sharks on their special evening. 


Food Committee (Hospitality): Lend a hand to our great food chair to help organize the food donations and logistics to give our kids a night of incredible cuisine.


Donations/Prizes (Admin): Our donation and prize chairs need help with securing and choosing prizes for the raffles, poker tournament and gift bags.  Let’s give the kids some things to take with them to remember this special evening.


Electrical/Technology (Design): Someone to interface with our AV company to make sure all things electrical are connected properly, and someone with knowledge of technology to help with the movie theater, dance room and gaming rooms

TRAFFIX

The TRAFFIX bus program is entering its 9th year of service, providing safeconvenient and affordable transportation for students. The program has helped reduce the number of vehicle trips during school pick-ups and drop-offs and significantly reduces the carbon footprint in Danville and San Ramon every year.

Parents are saving time and money and kids love riding the bus. This helps your student build confidence and independence while doing a great service to our community in getting cars off the road during rush hour.

For the 2018 – 2019 School Year, the SR-21 bus will serve San Ramon Valley High School.

You can look at the SR-21 route here.

 

Passes for the 2018 - 2019 school year go on sale on April 23, 2018 at 7:00 AM and will be sold on a first come, first served basis.  The price for a High School Bus Pass is $335.

The bus at San Ramon Valley High is expected to sell out.

This Start Smart class is part of the San Ramon Valley’s Street Smarts program and is a partnership between CHP, Street Smarts, and the San Ramon Valley Unified School District (SRVUSD). SRVUSD students AND their parent/guardian MUST attend a CHP Start Smart class in order to be eligible for a parking permit.

Start Smart is a FREE two hour highly impactful interactive traffic safety class designed for drivers or soon to be drivers 15-19 years of age and their parents to discuss the serious laws, obligations, responsibilities, and family expectations that are part of driving a vehicle. Despite safer vehicles, better roads, and countless driving programs, the numbers of young drivers who have lost their lives due to traffic collisions have remained fairly constant. However, these deaths and injuries can be substantially reduced by eliminating high-risk behaviors.

Upon attending the class, students will receive a certificate of completion and it’s recommended that students hold on to this certificate.

San Ramon High Academic Boosters has launched the 2018 spring fundraising campaign.  It is our hope that strong support during this campaign will assist us in planning the school’s master schedule for the fall.

 

Why should you donate? 

Academic Boosters is our school “Ed Fund”.  It is the only group on campus that adds extra sections or class periods to the master schedule.   This important benefit is unique to our school, because it helps us reduce class size and allows us to offer a variety of electives that are not otherwise covered by state or local funding.  Every dollar raised here, stays here at SRV.  Last year Academic Boosters were able to give me 16 extra class sections to add to the schedule.  This year they would like to fund 18 sections, but they can’t do it without your support.

 

While the bulk of the Academic Booster budget (80%) goes toward adding extra sections, the remainder of the budget supports important programs such as:  College and Career Center staffing, after school library hours, free tutoring labs, SAT/ACT test prep, individual scholarships and club grants at SRV.

 

Please help us plan for the 2018 academic year by donating now.    Our school is only as strong as the community that supports us. 

Suggested per student donation is $495.  Online donation link can be found here:

 

DONATE NOW TO SRV ED FUND or by sending a check (preferred) to:

SRVHS Academic Boosters

P.O. Box 1004

You may email them at: srvhsab@hotmail.com  for any questions or suggestions.  They also accept corporate matching funds.  Thank you for your support.

Outdoor Activities Area (Design):  Design the area where our kids play games and outdoor activities during the evening.  Our incredible design chairs already have some great ideas for this project.  Just need a fun loving parent to implement them.


Massage Room (Design):  Create the indoor oasis for our students to relax and get a massage after a hard day at graduation.  Again, work with our amazing design chairs to bring their design to life.


Casino (Activities):  Work with one of our most experienced parents at casino activities to create the perfect poker tournament and casino activities for our kid card sharks on their special evening. 


Food Committee (Hospitality): Lend a hand to our great food chair to help organize the food donations and logistics to give our kids a night of incredible cuisine.


Donations/Prizes (Admin): Our donation and prize chairs need help with securing and choosing prizes for the raffles, poker tournament and gift bags.  Let’s give the kids some things to take with them to remember this special evening.


Electrical/Technology (Design): Someone to interface with our AV company to make sure all things electrical are connected properly, and someone with knowledge of technology to help with the movie theater, dance room and gaming rooms

Dear Parents,

 

Are you cleaning out your closets?  Please consider the library!

We are looking for gently used, family appropriate games for our space to encourage student decompression.

 

For example, we’d love these types of games: Checkers, Chess, Jenga, Apples to Apples, etc.

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

 

Thank you,

Jessica Ringwood, Teacher-Librarian

Seniors: Still trying to figure out post SRVHS plans? Many out of state schools have rolling admissions which means they are still accepting applications and have great programs in business, architecture, health sciences, engineering, dance/theater, journalism/communications, veterinary and more: A few schools include: Arizona State, Boise State, Colorado State, Michigan State, Mississippi State, Oregon State, Texas Tech U, U of Alabama, U of Arizona, U of Idaho, U of Kansas, U of Missouri, U of Nevada-Reno, U of Tennessee, Ole Miss, and U of Kentucky. Check out their websites or come see us in C&CC to discuss.

 

April 30 – May 3rd – Las Positas College FastPass Event: Seniors interested in attending Las Positas who still need to register – see flyer in school loop news feed with specific dates/times or go to www.laspositascollege.edu .  LPC is offering FastPass registration (application, orientation, testing, course registration and more for students who have not yet completed the process for summer/fall admissions).  Different days/times are available, first come, first served.

 

May 12th Diablo Valley College Viking SEA Day at DVC’s Pleasant Hill campus. Seniors: this event is for high school seniors that have applied to DVC for the summer or fall semester, and have yet to complete the steps to enroll (online orientation, assessment, Counseling-095).  The day offers the opportunity to complete the steps, and to actually register for summer and/or fall classes. Registration for this event is required, as we will be preparing a checklist for each student that will note what items have been completed, as well as those to take care of on that Saturday.  If a student has not registered for the upcoming terms, then that is the only step they will be able to complete on the 12th, as the application processing takes several hours (upload from Open CCC to our system, username/portal access is generated, etc.).

Four Year Decisions

  • Financial Aid Award letters will arrive soon after acceptance letters. If you completed the FAFSA, this information will show you the total Cost of Attendance (COA) and outline how the University suggests you may pay for it (scholarship, grants, student or parent loans, work study, etc.). You will have the option to accept or decline each of the line items presented.  For questions call the college financial aid office directly, they are your best resource for understanding the nuances of financial aid.
  • May 1st is National Commitment Day. You must commit to a college no later than May 1st and each college may have a different ‘time stamp’ for when this must be completed (ie west coast/east coast?). You may only “commit” to one college, but you may remain on multiple wait lists! 
  • Let colleges know if you will NOT be attending and thank them. Some colleges have a link you can click on to decline. For others, you can simply email their admissions department and let them know.

 

Please update your Naviance Portals with admission and commitment decisions: As you receive college notifications, please update your Colleges I’m Applying to List with admission and decision status.

 

CSU Bound: CSU’s require students meet a guideline for their placement into Math and English. Some students may be exempt based on SAT/ACT scores, CAASPP scores, and/or based on SRVHS coursework.  If a CSU has indicated that you need to complete this requirement, follow up accordingly.

 

Wait Lists:  Some colleges use wait lists as part of their enrollment strategy.  Know that you should accept an offer of admission to another college by May 1st and then if you are offered a space at your wait listed college, you may then withdraw your commitment to the first college and deposit at your waitlist school.

Parent:

 

On Friday, May 18, 2018 during lunch, SRVHS will be holding a College Athlete Luncheon for the 2017-18 school year sponsored by Athletic Boosters and Leadership.  All student-athletes who are going on to play college athletics regardless of division are invited to attend. In order to recognize all of the eligible students, I am reaching out to parents and coaches of students of the class of 2018 to gather information. Please send me an email message with your student's name, the name of the college, and the sport they will be playing by Monday, May 7th, 2018 at gochs@srvusd.net so that we may include your student in the SRVHS event. Thank you.

 

Mr. Ochs

 

San Ramon High Academic Boosters has launched the 2018 spring fundraising campaign.  It is our hope that strong support during this campaign will assist us in planning the school’s master schedule for the fall.

 

Why should you donate? 

Academic Boosters is our school “Ed Fund”.  It is the only group on campus that adds extra sections or class periods to the master schedule.   This important benefit is unique to our school, because it helps us reduce class size and allows us to offer a variety of electives that are not otherwise covered by state or local funding.  Every dollar raised here, stays here at SRV.  Last year Academic Boosters were able to give me 16 extra class sections to add to the schedule.  This year they would like to fund 18 sections, but they can’t do it without your support.

 

While the bulk of the Academic Booster budget (80%) goes toward adding extra sections, the remainder of the budget supports important programs such as:  College and Career Center staffing, after school library hours, free tutoring labs, SAT/ACT test prep, individual scholarships and club grants at SRV.

 

Please help us plan for the 2018 academic year by donating now.    Our school is only as strong as the community that supports us. 

Suggested per student donation is $495.  Online donation link can be found here:

 

DONATE NOW TO SRV ED FUND or by sending a check (preferred) to:

SRVHS Academic Boosters

P.O. Box 1004 

Danville CA 94526 

 

You may email them at: srvhsab@hotmail.com  for any questions or suggestions.  They also accept corporate matching funds.  Thank you for your support.

 

CALLING ALL SENIOR PARENTS!  
GRAD NIGHT 2018, ONLY WEEKS LEFT!

 

NOW IS YOUR CHANCE TO GET INVOLVED!

Preparations for Grad Night 2018 is in full swing!  Drop by our work site at 12647 Alcosta Blvd., Bishop Ranch 15, Suite 100, San Ramon to see our progress.  There are still a few areas that we need help from you to fill.  As they say, “Many hands make light work.”  Many of these do not require a large time commitment.  We only have weeks left to create the most memorable grad night!

Here are the areas we could use your assistance:

Outdoor Activities Area (Design):  Design the area where our kids play games and outdoor activities during the evening.  Our incredible design chairs already have some great ideas for this project.  Just need a fun loving parent to implement them.


Massage Room (Design):  Create the indoor oasis for our students to relax and get a massage after a hard day at graduation.  Again, work with our amazing design chairs to bring their design to life.


Casino (Activities):  Work with one of our most experienced parents at casino activities to create the perfect poker tournament and casino activities for our kid card sharks on their special evening. 


Food Committee (Hospitality): Lend a hand to our great food chair to help organize the food donations and logistics to give our kids a night of incredible cuisine.


Donations/Prizes (Admin): Our donation and prize chairs need help with securing and choosing prizes for the raffles, poker tournament and gift bags.  Let’s give the kids some things to take with them to remember this special evening.


Electrical/Technology (Design): Someone to interface with our AV company to make sure all things electrical are connected properly, and someone with knowledge of technology to help with the movie theater, dance room and gaming rooms

SENIORS 

There are many colleges still accepting applications.  Some private and/or out of state schools remain open until spots are filled and they don’t face impaction as many CA schools do. Confirm deadlines on the college website but if you are still considering options go to: https://bigfuture.collegeboard.org/get-in/applying-101/late-applications for a list of colleges by application due dates.

 

Community Collegeapply now: If you are considering DVC, Las Positas or other community college the time to apply is now. Log on to their website and begin the enrollment process. 

 

Four Year Decisions

  • Do the math!  Financial Aid Award letters will arrive soon after acceptance letters (or will post on your portal). If you completed the FAFSA, this information will show you the total Cost of Attendance (COA) and outline how the University suggests you may pay for it (scholarship, grants, student or parent loans, work study, etc.). You will have the option to accept or decline each of the line items presented.  For questions on this, stop by the College and Career Center after break and we can provide guidance and/or call the college financial aid office directly.
  • *May 1st is National Commitment Day. You must commit to a college no later than May 1st and each college may have a different ‘time stamp’ for when this must be completed (ie west coast/east coast?). Check your college for specific time regulations.  You may only “commit” to one college!  But, you may remain on multiple wait lists! 
  • Let  colleges know if you will NOT be attending and thank them. Some colleges have a link you can click on to decline. For others, you can simply email their admissions department and let them know.
  • Once you have committed to your college, sign up immediately for housing (send a $ deposit if required) and orientation day.
  • Check your college portal to learn if you need to do any subject level assessment testing (this is most typically for Math and English,  if needed at all). 

 

Please Update your Naviance Portals with admission and commitment decisions: As you receive college notifications, please update your Colleges I’m Applying to List with admission status. It is helpful for us to know how things are going and to follow admission trends for our SRVHS students. Juniors are currently building their lists and it is helpful to know what is happening with our Seniors.

 

CSU Bound: CSU’s require students meet a guideline for their placement into Math and English. Some students may be exempt based on SAT/ACT scores, CAASPP scores, and/or based on SRVHS coursework.  If a CSU has indicated that you need to complete this requirement, be sure to follow up accordingly and completing testing by the deadlines posted.

 

Wait Lists:  Some colleges use wait lists as part of their enrollment strategy.  Know that you should accept an offer of admission to another college by May 1, and then if you are offered a space at your wait listed college, you may then withdraw your commitment to the first college (but you will most likely lose your enrollment deposit and need to submit another to the new college choice).  Typically you will not hear regarding your wait list status until AFTER May 1*, so don’t hold out in accepting another college’s offer by May 1.  

 

Seniors:  Bed Bath and Beyond - Discounted Shopping night for your Dorm Needs 7/22/18!

The Hacienda Crossings location Bed Bath and Beyond special shopping event for students shopping for College will be July 22nd, from 4-7 pm.  Download a flyer from School Loop (or pick one up in the C & CC) for details.

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

“Angst” Film: TWO Screenings hosted by SRVHS PTSA & Challenge Success

Due to high demand and community interest, we will show ANGST on TWO NIGHTS: Tuesday, April 10th and Wednesday, April 11th.  Please confirm your seat using this Sign-up Genius:  http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0a4da8ab23a1ff2-srvhs

 

"Angst: Raising Awareness Around Anxiety" is a documentary that was created to start community conversations about ANXIETY and provide tools, resources, and hope to those who struggle with the effects of ANXIETY. Immediately following the film screening, we will have a group discussion facilitated by SRVHS Principal, Jason Krolikowski and SRVHS PTSA Executive VP, Shelley Clark.  For more details about the movie, please visit AngstMovie.com.

San Ramon High Academic Boosters has launched the 2018 spring fundraising campaign.  It is our hope that strong support during this campaign will assist us in planning the school’s master schedule for the fall. 

 

Why should you donate? 

Academic Boosters is our school “Ed Fund”.  It is the only group on campus that adds extra sections or class periods to the master schedule.   This important benefit is unique to our school, because it helps us reduce class size and allows us to offer a variety of electives that are not otherwise covered by state or local funding.  Every dollar raised here, stays here at SRV.  Last year Academic Boosters were able to give me 16 extra class sections to add to the schedule.  This year they would like to fund 18 sections, but they can’t do it without your support.

 

While the bulk of the Academic Booster budget (80%) goes toward adding extra sections, the remainder of the budget supports important programs such as:  College and Career Center staffing, after school library hours, free tutoring labs, SAT/ACT test prep, individual scholarships and club grants at SRV.

 

Please help us plan for the 2018 academic year by donating now.    Our school is only as strong as the community that supports us. 

Suggested per student donation is $495.  Online donation link can be found here:

 

DONATE NOW TO SRV ED FUND or by sending a check (preferred) to:

SRVHS Academic Boosters

P.O. Box 1004 

Danville CA 94526 

 

You may email them at: srvhsab@hotmail.com  for any questions or suggestions.  They also accept corporate matching funds.  Thank you for your support.

 

CALLING ALL SENIOR PARENTS!  
GRAD NIGHT 2018, ONLY 9 WEEKS LEFT!

 

NOW IS YOUR CHANCE TO GET INVOLVED!

Preparations for Grad Night 2018 is in full swing!  Drop by our work site at 12647 Alcosta Blvd., Bishop Ranch 15, Suite 100, San Ramon to see our progress.  There are still a few areas that we need help from you to fill.  As they say, “Many hands make light work.”  Many of these do not require a large time commitment.  We only have weeks left to create the most memorable grad night!

Here are the areas we could use your assistance:

Outdoor Activities Area (Design):  Design the area where our kids play games and outdoor activities during the evening.  Our incredible design chairs already have some great ideas for this project.  Just need a fun loving parent to implement them.


Massage Room (Design):  Create the indoor oasis for our students to relax and get a massage after a hard day at graduation.  Again, work with our amazing design chairs to bring their design to life.


Casino (Activities):  Work with one of our most experienced parents at casino activities to create the perfect poker tournament and casino activities for our kid card sharks on their special evening. 


Food Committee (Hospitality): Lend a hand to our great food chair to help organize the food donations and logistics to give our kids a night of incredible cuisine.


Donations/Prizes (Admin): Our donation and prize chairs need help with securing and choosing prizes for the raffles, poker tournament and gift bags.  Let’s give the kids some things to take with them to remember this special evening.


Electrical/Technology (Design): Someone to interface with our AV company to make sure all things electrical are connected properly, and someone with knowledge of technology to help with the movie theater, dance room and gaming rooms

Community College – apply now: If you are considering DVC, Las Positas or other community college the time to apply is now. Log on to their website and begin the enrollment process. We also have information in the College/Career Center.

Four Year Decisions

  • Do the math!  Financial Aid Award letters will arrive soon after acceptance letters (or will post on your portal). If you completed the FAFSA, this information will show you the total Cost of Attendance (COA) and outline how the University suggests you may pay for it (scholarship, grants, student or parent loans, work study, etc.). You will have the option to accept or decline each of the line items presented.  For questions on this, stop by the College and Career Center after break and we can provide guidance.
  • May 1st is National Commitment Day. You must commit to a college no later than May 1st and each college may have a different ‘time stamp’ for when this must be completed (ie west coast/east coast?). Check your college for specific time regulations.
  • Let  colleges know if you will NOT be attending and thank them. Some colleges have a link you can click on to decline. For others, you can simply email their admissions department and let them know.
  • Once you have committed to your college, sign up immediately for housing (send a $ deposit if required) and register for orientation day.
  • Check your college portal to learn if you need to do any subject level assessment testing (this is most typically for Math and English,  if needed at all). 

 

Please Update your Naviance Portals with admission and commitment decisions: As you receive college notifications, please update your Colleges I’m Applying to List with admission status. It is helpful for us to know how things are going and to follow admission trends for our SRVHS students. Juniors are currently building their lists and it is helpful to know what is happening with our Seniors.

 

CSU Bound: CSU’s require students meet a guideline for their placement into Math and English. Some students may be exempt based on SAT/ACT scores, CAASPP scores, and/or based on SRVHS coursework.  If a CSU has indicated that you need to complete this requirement, be sure to follow up accordingly and completing testing by the deadlines posted.

BACKPACK AND SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE FOR LOCAL KIDS IN NEED (MARCH-APRIL): 
Did you know that there are tons of foster kids and kids in need right in our own school district?  Last year the school district was in desperate need of backpacks and school supplies and the PTH Club along with the generous support of our SRV families came to the rescue! This year we’d like to collect in advance so that the district is not faced with a shortage this fall.  Please consider donating of the following items on or before April 30th to the Pledge To Humanity bins in the school office.


Supplies Needed: New or gently used backpacks (washed with no holes), binder paper, binders, calculators, USB sticks to save data, pens, pencils. There is a need for ONE working laptop, if you have a working laptop that you want to donate, please contact 
beth@pledgetohumanity.org  (pls don’t leave laptops in the office).

 

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

Parent:

San Ramon High Academic Boosters has launched the 2018 spring fundraising campaign.  It is our hope that strong support during this campaign will assist us in planning the school’s master schedule for the fall. 

 

Why should you donate? 

Academic Boosters is our school “Ed Fund”.  It is the only group on campus that adds extra sections or class periods to the master schedule.   This important benefit is unique to our school, because it helps us reduce class size and allows us to offer a variety of electives that are not otherwise covered by state or local funding.  Every dollar raised here, stays here at SRV.  Last year Academic Boosters were able to give me 16 extra class sections to add to the schedule.  This year they would like to fund 18 sections, but they can’t do it without your support.

 

While the bulk of the Academic Booster budget (80%) goes toward adding extra sections, the remainder of the budget supports important programs such as:  College and Career Center staffing, after school library hours, free tutoring labs, SAT/ACT test prep, individual scholarships and club grants at SRV.

 

Please help us plan for the 2018 academic year by donating now.    Our school is only as strong as the community that supports us. 

Suggested per student donation is $495.  Online donation link can be found here:

 

DONATE NOW TO SRV ED FUND

or by sending a check (preferred) to:

SRVHS Academic Boosters

P.O. Box 1004 

Danville CA 94526 

 

You may email them at: srvhsab@hotmail.com  for any questions or suggestions.  They also accept corporate matching funds.  Thank you for your support.  

 

CALLING ALL SENIOR PARENTS!  
GRAD NIGHT 2018, ONLY 9 WEEKS LEFT!

 

NOW IS YOUR CHANCE TO GET INVOLVED!

Preparations for Grad Night 2018 is in full swing!  Drop by our work site at 12647 Alcosta Blvd., Bishop Ranch 15, Suite 100, San Ramon to see our progress.  There are still a few areas that we need help from you to fill.  As they say, “Many hands make light work.”  Many of these do not require a large time commitment.  We only have nine weeks left to create the most memorable grad night!

Here are the areas we could use your assistance:

Outdoor Activities Area (Design):  Design the area where our kids play games and outdoor activities during the evening.  Our incredible design chairs already have some great ideas for this project.  Just need a fun loving parent to implement them.


Massage Room (Design):  Create the indoor oasis for our students to relax and get a massage after a hard day at graduation.  Again, work with our amazing design chairs to bring their design to life.


Casino (Activities):  Work with one of our most experienced parents at casino activities to create the perfect poker tournament and casino activities for our kid card sharks on their special evening. 


Food Committee (Hospitality): Lend a hand to our great food chair to help organize the food donations and logistics to give our kids a night of incredible cuisine.


Donations/Prizes (Admin): Our donation and prize chairs need help with securing and choosing prizes for the raffles, poker tournament and gift bags.  Let’s give the kids some things to take with them to remember this special evening.


Electrical/Technology (Design): Someone to interface with our AV company to make sure all things electrical are connected properly, and someone with knowledge of technology to help with the movie theater, dance room and gaming rooms

Dear Parents,

 

Are you cleaning out your closets?  Please consider the library!

We are looking for gently used, family appropriate games for our space to encourage student decompression.

 

For example, we’d love these types of games: Checkers, Chess, Jenga, Apples to Apples, etc.

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

 

Thank you,

Jessica Ringwood, Teacher-Librarian

Be sure to visit the dining halls, department buildings, career centers, student support centers, dorms (if possible), plus the local town, in addition to talking to current students during your visit.  And, you might want to take some notes after, so you remember your campus highlights.  Enjoy your college search journey of exploration—we look forward to hearing about it!

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

BACKPACK AND SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE FOR LOCAL KIDS IN NEED (MARCH-APRIL): 
Did you know that there are tons of foster kids and kids in need right in our own school district?  Last year the school district was in desperate need of backpacks and school supplies and the PTH Club along with the generous support of our SRV families came to the rescue! This year we’d like to collect in advance so that the district is not faced with a shortage this fall.  Please consider donating of the following items on or before April 30th to the Pledge To Humanity bins in the school office.


Supplies Needed: New or gently used backpacks (washed with no holes), binder paper, binders, calculators, USB sticks to save data, pens, pencils. There is a need for ONE working laptop, if you have a working laptop that you want to donate, please contact 
beth@pledgetohumanity.org  (pls don’t leave laptops in the office).

 

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

Parent and Community Education Night: Helping Your Student Manage Stress

Open to all SRVUSD Parents/Guardians

Thursday, March 15, 2018 at 7 p.m.

Monte Vista High School Theatre

 

Teen stress is an important health issue. The early teen years are often marked by physical, cognitive, and emotional changes. Teens are also dealing with changing relationships, demands at school, pressure to succeed in life, college concerns, family tensions, and crammed schedules. Many are not prepared to handle high levels of stress and over time this can lead to depression and anxiety.

 

Presentations by Discovery Counseling Center and Contra Costa Crisis Center.

They talk to many of our students on a regular basis and are in touch with the many demands our students are facing.

 

Learn practical tips for parents in helping to support our students and build resiliency.

 

Athletic Boosters has two board positions coming open - Treasurer and Director of Corporate Matching. If you are interested in either of these positions, please contact Jeff Romrell at jkromrell@gmail.com.

 

Dear Parents,

 

Are you cleaning out your closets?  Please consider the library!

We are looking for gently used, family appropriate games for our space to encourage student decompression.

 

For example, we’d love these types of games: Checkers, Chess, Jenga, Apples to Apples, etc.

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

 

Thank you,

Jessica Ringwood, Teacher-Librarian
