SRVUSD Parents July TO DO List:
Think the start of the school year is a long way off? Not so, we only have about 5 weeks left until school starts and only 2 weeks before the Annual Update begins.
You can make the Annual Update process go much smoother if you take care of the following housekeeping items in July:
- Update your VOLUNTEER information! Are you a new parent to SRVUSD or has your child promoted to a new school? If so, and you want to volunteer, you will need to register or update your information in our online Volunteer Management System. For more information and instructions, visit http://www.srvusd.net/volunteers.
The Twin Creeks School office will reopen to the public August 10th. Please see the district flyer below for summer enrollment information.

SRVUSD Annual Update Fall 2015
Each fall, San Ramon Valley Unified parents are asked to complete an online “Annual Update” to verify household and emergency contact information and complete the annual release acknowledgement and permission requirements.
For the 2015-2016 school year, to assist the online program in running smoothly, the parent portal will open on a different day in August for each high school and its feeder middle and elementary schools. Please note: parents do not need to fill out the annual update on the day that the portal opens. Parents will have until the first day of school, Tuesday, August 25, 2015, to fill out the information.
Parents will receive a message in their Parent Portal with a link to begin the Annual Update process on the following dates:
Thursday, August 6: California High School, Iron Horse Middle School, Pine Valley Middle School, Golden View Elementary, Twin Creeks Elementary, Bollinger Canyon Elementary, Montevideo Elementary, Walt Disney Elementary, Neil Armstrong Elementary and Country Club Elementary
Reflections 2015... get a jump on the fun!
Are you looking for something fun and educational for your kids to do over the summer. Have you heard of Reflections? It is a national, annual, PTA arts recognition program. There are 6 categories: Visual Arts, Photography, Music, Literature, Dance, & Film. Get started over the summer and submit your piece in September 2015.
Remember to get inspired by the theme. The theme for 2015-16 is: Let Your Imagination Fly.
Students may now submit 3D entries under the Visual Arts category! Under 3D, materials such as ceramics, sculpture, jewelry, fiber arts, etc. are eligible. There are certain conditions under which students must follow for the 3D submission, such as the entry must be portable, and students must include three photos of their 3D artwork of three different angles with their entry form.
There will no longer be a thickness restriction to the 2D artwork. This means that students now could create and submit their 2D artwork on a traditional stretched canvas on wood.
Please contact: Milly Foley for any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
