SPRING CONFERENCE SCHEDULE:
We want to remind you that SRVUSD changed the spring conference schedule this year to provide an opportunity for parent/teacher conferences to take place earlier during the second half of the year. Rather than holding spring conferences all in one week, the five days are spread across January 23rd, February 13th and 14th, and March 6th and 7th. TK and Kinder will be dismissed at their usual times, however Grades 1-5 will be staggered between 12:37 pm and 12:47 pm. Click here for exact dismissal times.
DANVILLE PD NOW TICKETING IN FRONT LOT:
The Danville Police Department has begun to ticket parents who are not following signage about when it is okay to park in the front school lot and when it is not. Please remember that the correct drop off for children is from the McCauley Road exit. Help keep the children safe (and avoid a ticket), by only dropping off and picking up in the back lot.
GREEN VALLEY'S "SCHOOL WIDE READ ALOUD" PROGRAM:
Every month Green Valley picks a book for its School Wide Read Aloud program (SWRA) - a unique non-curriculum initiative that was first introduced to Green Valley students, across all grades, about 10 years ago. Each chosen book touches upon an important theme, to help meet and address the social and emotional needs of students. As with any school initiative that falls outside of public funding, we rely on the financial support of the Green Valley community. Our goal is to raise $3,000 for SWRA this year.
THREE TEACHERS GET FULLY FUNDED GRANTS FROM SRVEF:
The first grant was written by Eva Kowalewicz for flexible classroom seating, the second was written by Katie Robinson for graphic novels, and the third was written by Sarah Rick for new Orff instruments. Thanks to our Learning Fund, Sarah's grant will be matched to help us buy more of these instruments to support our music program. These grants provide an excellent opportunity for our school. Congratulations to Eva, Katie, and Sarah and thank you for supporting our kids!
GREEN VALLEY WINS ANOTHER AWARD!:
Green Valley has been chosen by Educational Results Partnership (ERP) and the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE) as a 2015 California Honor Roll recipient! The California Honor Roll is part of a national effort known for its extensive and rigorous analysis of student achievement in public schools. Our school stood above other schools in the state because of our success in getting students to higher levels of achievement and beyond.
