HELP GREEN VALLEY WIN $10,000 THIS WEDNESDAY - FRIDAY!:
Green Valley has a chance to win a whooping $10,000 this Wednesday through Friday (Sept. 28-30) from the San Ramon Valley Education Foundation. But we need your help!!! The top 3 schools in the district with the highest % increase in runner registrations for The Run for Education during this time will receive the following grants: 1. $10,000 2. $5,000 3. $2,500. Not able to make Race Day in person? Support Green Valley with Virtual Runner enrollment for your family instead. All Virtual Runners will be counted as part of this competition! Right now we only have 29 registrants (5% of our enrollment), so we have a great shot at winning some money from this competition. What are you waiting for? Register on Wednesday!
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. And we want to do this via the upcoming, and ever popular, SRVEF Run for Education - which gives money to those schools directly affiliated with its runners. So please consider registering you and your family for the run, on behalf of Green Valley. You can even be a "virtual runner" if the 5k fun run/walk is not your thing.
BRING YOUR BOX TOPS TO THE SCHOOL OFFICE:
Help Green Valley earn money via the household products that you already buy. Each Box Top is worth 10 cents and our goal is to collect 2,500 this year. The money raised will be used to purchase new and exciting P.E. and recess equipment. For a list of participating products, click here. All Box Tops are due to the school office by October 14th.
ONLINE AUCTION FOR EDUCATION:
The annual San Ramon Rotary Online Auction for Education is the largest funder of the San Ramon Valley Education Foundation’s educator grants. Last year the auction raised over $80,000 towards grants that funded innovative programs and technology for SRVUSD students. This year's auction opens on October 4th at 10 am and closes on October 14th at 10 pm. Everyone who bids will be entered to win one of the following prizes: a 60" TV (courtesy of San Ramon Rotary's Auction for Education), a $500 shopping card to Target (courtesy of Crow Canyon Orthodontics), a class party for up to 30 kids from Rockin Jump Dublin. Click here to place your bid. The drawing will be held on race day. Visit www.sanramonrotary.org for more information.
ALL STUDENTS MUST COMPLETE ONLINE REGISTRATION!:
All child(ren) must be registered for the 2016-2017 school year. To go to Green Valley's online registration website, click here. Note the San Ramon Valley Unified School District also requires you to complete an annual update for your child BEFORE September 30th. This can be accessed through the Parent Portal in Infinite Campus. If you have questions, please email our Green Valley PTA Registration Coordinator.
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!
