PTA Sister School:

 

Comcast selected our sister school, Sun Terrace, to receive the benefits of their Comcast Cares Day.

This means that on April 21st a lot of Comcast employees and other community volunteers will come to the school and do projects that the school would like/need. This would include things such as painting stencils on our blacktop, painting murals on our walls, painting picnic tables, landscaping, general clean-up, building benches, assembling small furniture items, and much more.  Comcast provides all the materials needed.  They provide a light breakfast & lunch, and t-shirts while supplies last. In addition to the work they do, Comcast also offers a "grant" based on the number of volunteers that show up.  Last year they gave the schools $18 per volunteer (any age, any amount of time).  Sun Terrace can spend the grant money how they see fit.

 

Sign-in starts at 8:15, work starts around 9:00, lunch is served around 1:00, and they hope to be finished by 3:00.  Volunteers do not have to stay all day.  The earlier someone shows up, the better selection of projects they get.  

 

Normally, Comcast selects the school months in advance since there is so much planning involved.  The school that was originally chosen fell through, and we were selected just a few weeks ago, so this is all very rushed.  This is Comcast's 16th year doing this, and is their biggest 1-day nation-wide community service event.

 

To sign up, Los Cerros families, students and staff members can RSVP here, https://goo.gl/forms/LUTqWAquyip2Hsbt2.

COMMUNITY EVENTS 

 

San Ramon Valley High School Athletic Boosters is seeking board candidates for a few positions.  We are looking for candidates for Treasurer, Director of Corporate Matching and Director of Communications.  Each of these positions require attendance at our monthly Athletic Boosters meeting plus 2 to 3 hours of work outside the meetings per month.

 

Athletics at SRVHS are almost entirely self-funded and monies raised by Athletic Boosters are critical to the functioning of all 22 men’s and women’s sports teams at the school.  Participating on the Athletic Boosters Board is a great way to get involved and make an impact for 1,000+ student-athletes at San Ramon Valley High School.  If you have an interest in any of these positions, please contact me at jkromrell@gmail.com.

 

Thank you,

 

Jeff Romrell

President, SRVHS Athletic Boosters
