Community Parking
Danville Square (Trader Joe's center) has requested that parents refrain from dropping off and/or picking up students in the shopping center parking lot and that students refrain from parking at the center during school hours.

Make-A-Wish
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:

PTSA Legislative Advocacy
Nassar Mirzai 

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!

Welcome to SRV homecoming season! This is a great time for the sophomore class to come together, meet friends and bond while building an incredible homecoming float for the annual parade on October 12th. This year's homecoming theme is "Home of the Champions".  The sophomore theme is "Home Depot", with a "building our future" angle.  The kids are eager to bring their theme to reality, but they need lots of help and manpower!  

HOCO parade is just a week away!  The float is coming together but we need your help!  Parents - come to the site PLEASE!!! We need parents there during the build hours so kids can work.  No experience needed. If you can't stay the whole time - that's okay! We will take whatever you can give.  

We have a truck for the float!! Thank you to Sebring Transportation and the Taufer Family!  

We still need a convertible car for our class - if you can help us, please reply and let us know.  Old, new - whatever you have...

Here is the build schedule for the rest of the time - please come out and help. Build Site - 354 Love Lane, the Donaldson house!  Thank you to the Donaldson family!!
