Dear Dragon Community,

Parents and students will have the opportunity to meet our teachers, explore all our elective offerings and our Engineering and Agriculture Pathways. We hope you also take advantage of our workshops offered throughout the evening. In addition, if your student is interested in Drama, Music or Dance, there will be performances and brief presentations inside the theater. We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday, January 22nd.

No student is turned away. No peanuts. Healthy, low sugar, no chips. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9fUG3pLiH6hVzROZkhkN3dXMjhIeS0xQ2tLLUlyRjFHVXNV/view

Hello SVHS Parents!
The Class of 2020 Officers are responsible for planning all activities that occur during Senior Week, June 1-5 to celebrate the accomplishments of the Senior students. The Class Officers Kaylie Barrera and Kiley Cook, along with their fellow classmates are excited to begin planning, but are unfortunately running into the issue of low funds. The Seniors are planning fundraisers this semester such as a Dine and Donate, carwash, and selling calendars, but also highly depend on generous donations as Senior Week altogether usually costs between $15,000 to $20,000. This money will help our class go to Six Flags, Sebastiani Theater, the Senior BBQ, securing our Senior Breakfast location, busing fees, and to pay for our Senior shirts as mementos. The more money we gain from donations, the less your student has to pay for their Senior Week tickets. Seniors are kindly asking if any Dragon families would like to donate any amount to help our class have our last week at SVHS be fun and stress-free as we look forward to graduation!
Checks can be made out to “Class of 2020” and can be turned into Jo at Student Activities Office in the Administration Building, mailed to 20000 Broadway, Sonoma, CA 95476, OR follow this link Donate to Senior Week to directly pay by credit card! Thank you so much, the Seniors greatly appreciate all SVHS families.
