Tuesday night student representatives from SRVUSD’s four comprehensive high school Associated Student Bodies (ASB) and Gender Sexuality Alliances (GSA) came to the school board meeting to request that our Board of Education re-designate one multi-stall restroom at each high school campus to an all gender restroom as a pilot. Our Board approved implementation of this pilot which will begin on Tuesday, May 29, 2018. At Monte Vista, we will reassign the 400 Wing restrooms as our all-gender restroom.  

 

The all gender restroom pilot will last for one full semester and will be evaluated at the end of the Fall 2018 semester. We will report our evaluation of the pilot to the Board in January 2019. The implementation plan includes increased supervision for all high school restrooms to ensure safety for all students utilizing the re-designated restrooms.

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Thanks.

 

Dr. Kevin Ahern

Principal, Monte Vista High School

The flags at Monte Vista are at half mast today in honor of Peace Officers Memorial Day.  President John F. Kennedy declared the first Peace Officers Memorial Day on May 15, 1962, as a tribute to peace officers and in honor of peace officers who, through their courageous deeds, lost their lives or became disabled in the line of duty. This day has been observed in our country annually ever since.

 

On this day, and every day, it is fitting to honor those peace officers who gave their lives to protect ours, and to thank the law enforcement officers who serve for their dedication and service to our communities.

 

In accordance with Flag Code section 7(m), the United States flag is to be displayed at half-staff for the entire day in honor of Peace Officers Memorial Day, Tuesday, May 15, 2018. By a joint resolution approved October 1, 1962, as amended (76 Stat. 676), and by Public Law 103-322, as amended (36 U.S.C. 136-137), the President has been authorized and requested to designate May 15 of each year as "Peace Officers Memorial Day" and the week in which it falls as "Police Week."

Monte Vista High School needs your donations this week to fund class sections for the 2018-19 school year.   This special request is necessary because the donations have not been received to fund 18 class sections for 2018-19.  The funding shortfall will impact our program and students.   Let’s team together and meet this challenge! 

 

Will this impact your student?   More class sections in our master schedule means less students in each class and a better learning environment for all.  Principal Ahern and the Academic Boosters direct your donations to pay for class sections that meet the specific needs of MVHS students. A class section costs $23,000 for one class taught during one period for one year. 

 

Why is there a May 20th deadline for an August school year?  MV hires teachers for the 2018-19 school year based on the donations received by May 20, 2018.  The district requires a funding commitment for the additional sections.

 

What is the donation?  $395- Tax Deductible and about $1 per day.  Parents continued support is critical for Monte Vista to continue to offer a strong well rounded education for our kids.    
 

How do I donate?  Online CLICK HERE  or by check mailed to MVAB, 3131 Stone Valley Road, Danville, CA 94526  Academic Boosters is a 501(c)3 Organization - Tax ID 68-0260241

 

Thank you for your support!

This is the last class before the parking passes are distributed to Seniors in early August.  

 

 

START SMART CLASSES are required for a parking permit for 2018-19 school year.  There is one class just added that will help you meet the requirement if you have not yet attended.  No need to sign up since it is sold out.  Just get there early and sign for the waitlist.  

  • Wednesday, May 9th , 6:30 – 9pm Village Theatre, Danville, 

 

NOTE from Dolores Pita, SRV Street Smarts Coordinator:  

When the doors open at 6:30 pm on Wednesday, 5/9, we will start the list. I would recommend for students and parents to arrive early.

 

Although admission is not guaranteed, we do try to add as many people as possible. At the last two classes iwe cleared the waitlists and still had 75 open seats. However, since this is the last class this year, we anticipate it to be full.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions.

 

Thanks!

If you are a writer, artist, or photographer, and you would like your work to be published in the 2018 edition of Catharsis, send your it to mvlitmag17@gmail.com! The deadline is May 5th, and the finished book will be on sale from May/June and throughout the next school year.

 

If you would like to purchase last year's literary magazine, they are $8. A request can be sent to the same email. Purchasing a literary magazine will fund printing litmags for this year!

 

Submission Directions:

 

We accept any genre of writing - fiction, nonfiction, prose, poetry, essay, etc. Send your writing in a Word document or share using Google Docs. We're always looking for more writing, so tell your friends!

Digital art and photography can also be shared using Google Drive.

If you would like to submit art that is not already digital, take a high-quality photo and share it with mvlitmag17@gmail.com on Google Drive - sending pictures as an attachment on an email will degrade the resolution. 

--->Most smartphone-quality photos are great! Make sure to take photos with good, even lighting, as well as from an angle parallel to your work. The benches outside of the Art 3 room are a great place to place your work for photography, just make sure to adjust the white balance afterwards! :)) (It's a lot easier than you think!)

 

You can submit multiple pieces and pieces of both art and writing. We prefer work that you have previously done, this year or any year. Please send us any questions you may have. Thank you!
