Parents cannot clear these cuts. This is a safety policy that is strictly enforced and is outlined in the student handbook.

WHAT'S UP IN THE WOLF DEN?
Club Fair Coming Soon
Clubs are a huge part of the SRV community, and we encourage all students to participate and get involved! Clubs are a great way to meet new people with similar interests, have fun with your friends and make an impact during your time at San Ramon!
Do you want to renew or start a SRV Club?
The Club Fair is coming up on Fri., Sept. 14th!
If you are interested in starting or renewing a club, here are some dates you need to know:
- Tues. Aug. 28th at lunch: mandatory president meeting in R16 for new and old clubs. We will be going over a lot of information here!
- Thurs., Aug 30th: The Club Constitution (new clubs only) and Google Form (link below) are due. Please turn in the Constitution to R16!
Below are the forms you need to complete in order to obtain club status at SRV (new or returning).

If we do not have both the Google form AND Constitution, you will not be able to manage a club for the 2018-19 school year.

New to SRVHS: Make-A-Wish
This year the students of San Ramon Valley High School came together with a 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. By December if we have reached our goal to sponsor our wish kid, we would (if the wish kid shall choose to attend) hold the reveal of their wish, along with showing them what SRV spirit looks like at the rally. In regards to the $10,000 needed by December, we have a page in which you can donate directly to (bottom of email), as well as some events, and fundraisers in which we will be pairing with local business that will take place in the early 2018-2019 school year. 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).

Thank you to all who supported Academic Boosters during registration and our spring fundraising mailer.
This year we committed to funding 18 EXTRA classes. Two more classes than last year!
We have not been able to fund 18 classes since 2009! Every student benefits from smaller class sizes and elective choices. YOU make that happen here at SRV! YOU are funding the gap between State funding allocated to our school and the cost of providing the opportunities we want our children to experience at SRVHS. Thank you!
Despite our success, we only had 50% of registered families donate.
We can do better!
The strength of our funding determines the scale of services we can provide and sets the foundation for what we can commit to funding in future years.
If you have not had a chance to support Academic Boosters, you may still do so on by going to Future Fund and clicking the "View Store" button which will lead you to the Academic Boosters storefront:
Donate in Installments
We have monthly installment plans for ANY amount you are able to donate.
Every dollar raised at SRV stays at SRV!
If your company matches your donation,
be sure to supply a record of your Academic Booster donation to your company benefits administrator.
Print your receipt from Future Fund (see above for link) and click "View Receipt." Provide them with our
Tax ID#: 68-0398728
and mailing address:
SRVHS Academic Boosters, P.O. Box 1004, Danville CA 94526
Your support is a very direct and immediate way to benefit the academic opportunities of your student in their classroom every day.

Be sure your student takes advantage of SEPTEMBER’S FULL SCHEDULE at SRV of ACT/SAT mock tests and test-prep seminars advertised in the SRV College and Career Center and on SchoolLoop! Another service brought to you by Academic Boosters (link below)!

Do you like to type and keep digital files organized? Have you been wanting to get more involved at school but haven't found the right volunteer job? This might be your opportunity.

Dear Parents and Students of the Class of 2019,
Congratulations on being a Senior! The year comes with many exciting celebrations and events. With the District changes in the calendar, senior year activities are a little more challenging to schedule since April and May are very busy times of the year. SRV Student Leadership and the Senior Class Officers wanted to keep everyone aware of what the Spring events will look like. Last year we spent time after the year was over reviewing the schedule with the students of 2018 to get their input. Overall they enjoyed the May schedule, but parents found it a bit more challenging.
This year we have the following challenges:
- AP Tests do not start until May 6th
- Memorial Day falls the Monday of Finals week
- We tried to move the 2019 Senior Ball to April but only Friday nights were available. We have had our Senior Ball contract set for 3 years.
New Change: Seniors have had an interest to try the
(DVHS and MV have been doing the trip the last few years) With this add we have decided to drop Discovery Kingdom, as interest and enrollment has decreased over the last few years. The Disneyland trip is not run through the school but through USA Travel, but we do work on the logistics with the company and provide all the chaperones.
Senior Year at a Glance:
- 9/7 Hurricane Harbor (owned by Six Flags- formerly Waterworld)
- 5/11-5/12 Disneyland Grad Trip Celebration (optional) sign ups through USA Travel. Trip Info and Inclusions: Deluxe motor coach transportation to and from school; Admission to Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure; After party meal
- 5/18 Senior Ball at the Academy of Science in SF (optional)
- 5/19 Baccalaureate (inspirational service, free, optional) for all members and families of the Class of 2019 at Community Presbyerian in Danville.
- 5/20-24 Greek Games during school at lunch (optional); sign ups in April.
- 5/31 Graduation 6:00pm, SRV Football Field.
- 5/31 Grad Night, PTSA Sponsored Event
