"If art is to nourish the roots of our culture, society must set the artist free to follow his vision wherever it takes him... We must never forget that art is not a form of propaganda; it is a form of truth." ~ John F. Kennedy

PTSA Priorities Committee
Julie Petroni

During the August and September 2018 PTSA meetings we asked attendees to submit anonymous questions and/or concerns related to SRVHS for review and response by Principal Krolikowski and the PTSA Committee. Here are the responses:

Q: Can the community access the "SRVUSD Guest Wifi" to use our own devices when on campus? No one seems to know a sign-in or it does not work.
A: Unfortunately, there are very few devices allowed on the guest wifi at a time. If it is a community known password then no one will be able to use the wifi. The guest password is for presentations by individuals invited by the site.

Q: How are we supporting our teachers?   Do they have what they need for their classrooms?  Books, supplies (PE Equipment) etc...
Do we reach out to ask them what they need?  Survey monkey?
Don't forget the "T" in PTSA!!!
A: Our teachers have all of the supplies they need to run their class.  There are many pathways for teachers to receive financial support for any academic or curricular support.  We have:   PTSA Grants, SRV Ed Fund Grant, and School Site Council Funds.  SRVHS is extremely grateful for all support and donations.

Q: Glad to have Mr. K back!  YEAH!!! How are academic changes being communicated on a department level? (i.e. - changes in staff in Math dept., how are dept. changes going)?
A: Our focus has been the upcoming WASC report (visit in November) which has allowed us to perform a "self-study" and identify areas of strength and for growth. Our values and initiatives can be located in this document:

An ongoing process for SRVHS is Response to Intervention (RTI). This model of collaboration among teachers by department and specific course, will allow us to focus on 4 driving questions:

1.     What do we expect our students to learn? (Goals/Expectations)
2.     How will we know they are learning? (Assessment)
3.     How will we respond when they don't learn? (Intervention)
4.     How will we respond if they already know it? (For advanced)

SRVHS teachers are building essential learnings for each course, developing pacing sequences, and common assessment to guide instructional practices.

Q: Is there a climate committee on campus? Are parents involved?
A: Yes, primarily teaching staff driven through climate committee.  SRVHS is working with SRVUSD to develop a climate committee that includes and values parent voice.  More information will be coming soon. The school seeks and encourages input from the community regarding climate at our school.  SRV partners with the PTSA to provide parents any opportunity to be heard.
Listed below are the upcoming PTSA meetings:
  • Friday, October 12 - 9am to 11am
  • Friday, November 9 - 9am to 11am

This year, the students of San Ramon Valley High School came together with the goal of raising money to support Make-A-Wish Bay Area, in order to put on a 'Wish Week' at SRV and sponsor a wish. Wish Week is a one-week-long event where we partner with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to sponsor a child with a life-threatening medical condition. As a school, we will hold several events throughout the week in order to raise money to grant wishes.

This year, we aim to hold Wish Week February 5-9, 2019, wrapping up the week with a rally. In order to sponsor a wish we must raise $10,000 by December of 2018. If we reach our goal to sponsor our wish kid, we'll host the reveal of their wish, and show them what SRV spirit looks like at the rally.

Regarding the $10,000 needed by December, there's a link below where you can donate directly. We'll also have some events and fundraisers in early 2019 during which we will be pairing with local businesses. Any and all donations are highly appreciated, and we cannot wait for the word to spread throughout the community about this life-changing event. Be sure to check out SRV Media, who is helping grant a wish. Be sure to stay tuned via Instagram ( @srvhswolfpack) and Twitter ( @WERSR). Donate here:

Assembly Bill 2878, sponsored by California State PTA and co-authored by Assemblymember Rocky Chavez and Assemblymember Kevin McCarty, has been signed into law by Governor Brown. Signed September 28, 2018, this legislation will add research-based family engagement guidance and practice into the California Education Code. It will provide schools, districts and parents access to research-based best practices for family engagement and involvement. Research demonstrates that when schools practice authentic family engagement, absenteeism is reduced, dropout rates decrease and student achievement and graduation rates go up.

The Rich Tradition of SRVHS Graduation Party:
Support the time honored tradition of Grad Night at SRVHS! Grad Night is a senior class all-night, "safe and sober" graduation party that follows the graduation ceremony. The special event is complete with games, music, dancing, crafts, food, prizes and lots of fun. The theme changes every year so Grad Night is unique for each graduating class. Organized by the senior class parents, areas of the school campus are literally transformed to suit the theme of the night. Volunteer parents work hard to make this evening spectacular and it's only made possible because of all the people who donate their time. We need all the help we can get. Planning begins a year in advance and work continues right up until Grad Night...culminating into a positive send off for our SRV Seniors!

Please consider joining the 2019 Grad Night Committee! Grad Night 2019 planning starts NOW! Please take a look at the sign-up genius link below, and find a spot, grab a few friends, and join on the fun!
