Athletic Boosters
Jeff Romrell, President


SRV Athletic Boosters Funding for SRV Sports is at a 10  Year Low!  
SRV Athletic Boosters needs your help to close the gap to fund SRV Sports so that our kids can continue to have superior coaching, equipment, and facilities. The SRV Athletic Boosters organization is the largest contributor to the SRV Athletic Dept. Budget for the 24 sports teams. This year, SRV Athletic Boosters has raised only $30,000 out of a targeted $70,000 that we give to the SRV Athletic Dept... that's a $40K gap.
 
Please use the link below to contribute any amount. Thank you!

PTSA Health & Wellness

As we enter into college application season, we thought we would share with you a new white paper published  by challenge success on what a "good" college really is. In summary, challenge success found that college students are more successful after college when they have gone to a school that is a good fit for them. "A good fit is a college where a student will be engaged - in class and out - by what the college has to offer. With over 4,500 colleges in the United States, there are many schools from which to choose. We encourage students and families to look beyond rankings in the college search process, and instead to seek a school where students can participate fully in academic, civic, and social life in order to thrive both during the college years and beyond."

GRAD NIGHT TICKETS
Hey Senior Wolves! Now that we are into the swing of things, don't forget to purchase your Grad Night ticket. Many of your friends have already done so and they've taken advantage of the lower price.

GRAD NIGHT BUILD SITE
Our PTSA Grad Night 2019 Committee is searching for a warehouse/office space/build site. Ideally, the space would be 5000-8000 sq ft, and have electricity and plumbing. We will need access to this build site from January/February - May 31st, 2019. This donation would likely qualify as a write-off because PTSA is a 501(c)3 non-profit. If you have any suggestions that we can follow up with, please contact Carrie Shapiro at  ca_shap@yahoo.com


GRAD NIGHT COMMITTEE
Planning for Grad Night 2019 is well underway, and we are having a great time so far! We need a few more enthusiastic SRV class of 2019 parents because... if we all do a little, no one does a lot.

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:  http://site.wish.org/goto/SRVHSWishWeek18
