                                          PTSA President’s Message
    Dear SRVHS Parents,

    Recently, Cheryl Glass, Ken Abrams, Chuck Perryman and Carol MacPhail and our Performing Arts students put on
    the musical, Into the Woods. It was an unforgettable night for me and my family! The talent that our student body has is
    truly remarkable. At one point, I closed my eyes and I would have thought that I was sitting in a theater in San Francisco
    or on Broadway. They were that good! The orchestra was top-notch! We still have some opportunities before the year is
    over to see and hear some amazing plays and concerts so please read the Wolf-Tones and Performing Arts sections of
    this newsletter for those dates. Try and attend one, if you can.

    The arts really are an important part of our curriculum here at SRVHS. Hopefully, with the passing of Measure C, we will
    be able to retain these quality programs. So with that, goes a heartfelt thank you to all of the parents who supported and
    more importantly voted for Measure C. Thank you also to Andrew Gardner (who literally was the Poster Boy for Measure
    C), Zach Pinkerton and Candace Andersen for all of the hours and energy they spent to make this campaign
    successful.

    We had our last PTSA Association meeting and Kelly and I want to thank all of you who have come to our meetings this
    past school year. We hope that you found them enjoyable and informative!


    Christine Wentker                    Kelly Louks

                                                Principal's Message
    Dear San Ramon Valley High School Community,

    There is great news for our school (and all schools in the District) - Measure C passed! While our budget issues are not
    solved, we are committed to continuing our pursuit of educational excellence. On that note, here are some of the great
    things that have been happening at SRVHS:

           Construction of the new Career Tech Education building is moving along with a completion date of December
      2009. Our Auto Shop will be demolished and additional parking will be in its place. The Small Gym will be torn down
      this month and construction on a new Main Gym will begin its 15 month process. Parking and traffic flow have taken a
      new turn; thank you for your patience.

                                                           Page 1
            We, along with nine other schools in the district, have the special honor of being named a "California
       Distinguished School". This is the fourth time San Ramon Valley High School has received this honor and we are very
       proud of our accomplishment.
            Students in grades 9 - 11 have finished STAR testing. Many of our upper classmen will be engaged in AP testing
       during the first two weeks of May.
            We have worked out a new schedule for next year that includes 3 days for remediation and enrichment. I will hold
       a parent forum at the end of this year and also in August to explain and answer any questions you may have. More
       information is available on our web site -- www.srvhs.org.
            SRVHS has started a Foundation! I would encourage you to visit www.srvhswolffoundation.org to gain a better
       understanding of this wonderful organization and its impact on our educational community.
            The end of the year is fast approaching. Please check the web site for all the latest information and happenings
       around campus as we move forward to June 12th.
            Last, listed below are our North Coast Section Scholastic Teams. This award is presented to the top three NCS
       Varsity Teams in each sport. They are:
                      Women's Soccer - NCS Scholastic Team Championship with a 3.71 Team GPA, 2009 NCS Soccer
          Champions
                      Men's Soccer - NCS Scholastic Team Championship with a 3.30 Team GPA
                      Women's Basketball - NCS Scholastic Team Championship with a 3.50 Team GPA
                      Men's Basketball - NCS Scholastic Team Championship with a 3.30 Team GPA

    Thank you for all of your support for San Ramon Valley High School.

    Enjoy your summer and GO WOLVES!
    Sincerely,

    Joe Ianora

    The school year is coming to a close. It is a time for endings but also a time for beginnings. Academic Boosters voted in
    a new board for 2009-2010. Please support Cynthia Moe as our new president. She has a very capable and
    enthusiastic board working with her. You will see many changes that I think will be for the good of our school. One that
    you will notice in the near future is a change in fundraising. Academic Boosters is going electronic. So please watch your
    e-mails for information on how to donate for the 2009-2010 school year. You can go to the school's website and download
    our new donation form. You can either send in a check with your donation form or pay by credit card with our new
    PayPal link. Whether you pay by credit card or by check, please send in your donation form as we need it for the
    directory. Keep in mind, if you take care of this now, you won't have to stand in line at registration. Your form will already
    be stamped!!!

    Your donations to Academic Boosters are not only tax-deductible, but 100% goes to classroom size reduction. In
    this era of major budget cuts by the state, your donation has never been more important. Please keep in mind, our
    students' education is our first priority. You can even pay in installments if that fits your budget better.

    In closing, it has been an honor to serve as president of Academic Boosters for these last two years. It's nice to pass the
    baton to such a capable board!

    Please plan on getting involved in Academic Boosters next fall!

Congratulations to the teachers and students who treated us to this marvelous production.

You to all the parents who volunteered to help make these events successful.

END OF YEAR AWARDS CEREMONIES

9th - 11th GRADES:
The Undergraduate and Academic Letter Awards Ceremony is Thursday, May 14, from 6pm to 7pm in the
Performing Arts Center. Please RSVP when you receive your invitation.

SENIORS: Senior and Academic Letter Awards Ceremony will be Tuesday, June 2nd at 6pm at Creekside
Community Church in Alamo. Please RSVP when you receive your invitation.

SAVE THIS DATE - October 15, 2009:
Our district's College Night will be held at Monte Vista High School. We'll have reps from over 100 colleges and
universities throughout our state and the US and speakers on pertinent issues.


JUNIORS

Testing: June is the last testing opportunity to take the SAT or ACT for this school year. Deadlines are immediate and
late fees will apply. Seniors may also want to retake tests in the fall starting in October. Use the summer to study or take a
prep class if you feel you need to. We have information on prep classes here in the College & Career Center as well as a
sheet with other options to expensive prep classes. We also have many test practice books for your use. No need to buy
one, when you can come in and check one out!

"COLLEGES THAT CHANGE LIVES", another great group of school representatives touring together, will be coming to
the Bay Area on Monday, August 3rd at the Marin Center in San Rafael. Visit www.CTCL.com and click on the CTCL
events for details and directions. The program begins with a panel discussion designed to encourage students to make
the college search process a well-informed journey that leads to the best possible outcome: finding the right college fit for
them. A college fair follows. Most of the colleges that are represented have student populations of less than 2,000.

COLLEGE PROCESS FOR JUNIORS: Our seniors tell us EACH YEAR that they wish they had started sooner on the
college process. From now on, your goal is to determine which "post high school institutions" meet your criteria. This can
include vocational and trade schools, community colleges, 4 year colleges and universities, or the military. Come to the
Career Center for assistance, we're here to work with you and provide insights as to how career center materials can
make these decisions easier for you. Also - plan on attending college visits when school reps come in the fall. Explore
your options! Reading the bulletin for updates in the College/Career Center is important if you want to know what is
happening!

When you have a few colleges in mind, plan to visit them over the summer. We have a "College Searching for
Juniors" packet available for you to take with you. The college you choose will be your home for the next few years. What
works for your best friend may not be right for you. The most important consideration is: "Where will I fit in and be
successful while getting a great education?"

The fall of your senior year will be extremely busy. You will be filling out college applications, applying for scholarships,
getting letters of recommendation, writing essays, taking SAT or ACT tests while continuing to keep up with your regular
classes and get good grades. Whew! Stay organized and keep on top of it all to meet your deadlines!

SENIORS

Congratulations go to those who have received scholarships from the college they will attend or from another
organization or group. The Senior Awards Ceremony is coming up on June 2nd. Come by the C/C Center immediately
to give us your name and the full details by filling out our awards form so you will receive recognition. Please bring a
copy of the scholarship award letter you have received, or bring in the original and we'll copy the letter for you. Mark your
calendar, Senior Awards Night - June 2nd at 6:00 p.m. at Creekside Community Church in Alamo. Those seniors being
recognized will receive an invitation by mail to attend with their parents. We need to know who you are as soon as
possible!

Speaking of scholarships -- There are still some scholarship opportunities with May deadlines! Check out the list on the
school web-page at www.srvhs.org. On the left hand side, click on "Scholarships Available in the Career Center",
determine those that fit, and come by the Career Center to pick up an application.

Our Map is Up! We like to track our senior's college choices! Come by the Career Center and notify us by making a
pennant for your final college choice so we can keep track of our graduating seniors and where they will attend. Share
your good news!

If you have college view-books, catalogues or other material on colleges that were gathered during the process that
you no longer need, PLEASE drop them all by the C/C Center any time. Do not throw them away, these donations are
welcome! The college that was not right for you may be perfect for someone else!


ALL STUDENTS AND PARENTS

Remember the College/Career Center is here to help you. During the school year we are open every day from 8:00 a.m.
to 4:00 p.m. We will be closed during the summer. Please call ahead to let us know when you'll be coming in so we can
serve you best. Students and parents are always welcome! You can reach us at 552-3007.

    A sincere thank you to Dreyer's Ice Cream for donating ice cream for our Junior Class selling period last week. The
    juniors raised funds to support junior class activities by selling root beer floats during lunch.

    Grad Night 2009 - for this year's graduating seniors: As most of you are aware, the Junior class parents are
    responsible for working the 8pm to 11pm shift for 2009 Grad Night on June 12th. The Senior Class needs many, many
    parents to chaperone, so please sign up to volunteer. It's a lot of fun, we get the good shift this year, and remember -
    parents from the other grades will return the favor for us when our students are seniors attending Grad Night. We
    encourage you to work the area that you might be interested in working on for our 2010 Grad Night. This will give you a
    better idea of what to expect for next year. Please contact the 2009 Volunteer chair, Nicole Gee ngee4fun@hotmail.com
    to sign up.



    Grad Night 2010 -- for OUR graduating seniors: Grad Night TAKEDOWN. Our Junior class is responsible for taking
    down Grad Night 2009 and putting it in storage on Saturday, June 13th. If this job is handled well and our supplies are
    stored in an organized way, it will make our 2010 construction process that much easier. We need volunteers to help with
    this takedown. We'd like to run three shifts from 7am - 10am, 10am - 1pm and 1pm - 4pm, so you don't have to devote
    your entire day. Snacks will be provided. PLEASE help if you can! We need flatbed trucks as well as able bodied
    volunteers. We could use as many parents as possible, especially our dads --- this is a time when we could really use
    your help. If you are available please email Adrienne Yarnold at ayarnold@sbcglobal.net and include your name, phone
    number and shift preference. Thank you!

    Grad Night 2010 -- for OUR graduating seniors: Choosing a THEME. Planning for Grad Night 2010 starts now! One of
    the first decisions that need to be made and one that will influence the entire project is selecting a theme for the Grad
    Night party. Because we have to make a few grad night decisions before school starts in the fall, we'd like to get your
    theme ideas before the school year ends so that we can choose a theme over the summer. If you have any ideas you'd
    like to put forward for consideration, please send them via email to ozjodie@comcast.net.

    Please consider the criteria below that help to decide a successful theme.

          should be visually interesting, lend itself to creative decoration and have a variety of "sub-themes" for decoration
     options.
          should have broad appeal and familiarity to both boys & girls and a wide variety of students.
          should be appropriate for a safe and sober night for graduates.
  In addition, please consider giving some thought to how your suggested theme might be implemented and give us some
  ideas such as a catchy title, the façade or entry, a description of possible room decorations, and theme-related activities.

    The 2010 Grad Night Steering Committee will meet over the summer to review ideas and select a theme. The theme will
    be announced at the Grad Night Kick- off meeting following Back-to-School Night in September, 2009 (date TBA).

The Sophomore Cruise was a great success. We lucked out with perfect weather and the event was a lot of fun for all of
the kids who attended. Thanks so much to Angela Ciccone and Peggy Cole for all of their hard work on this event.

We will be selling ice cream at lunch time for our spring selling period during the week of May 11th. Make sure to
purchase some ice cream and help out the class of 2011 while watching the Greek Games next week!
