Welcome Dragon Families!
I am excited to be joining you this year and am looking forward to getting to better know the SVHS community. We are quickly approaching the 2018-2019 school year and are proud to offer challenging core academic courses and a wide array of visual & performing arts and career technical education electives. We will continue with our school and district goals to provide a safe environment for all students, close achievement and opportunity gaps for students, and support high achievement for all students. We want our graduates to have opportunity and choice about their futures when they leave Sonoma Valley High School.
Our first day of school we will celebrate our 6th annual "Dragon Day". All students will have the opportunity to meet their teachers and set personal goals while learning about academic expectations and opportunities for the school year. We will welcome community and volunteer organizations to campus on Dragon Day for students to learn about opportunities and ways to be involved in their community.
We also welcome our incoming freshmen to one of our three Freshmen Teams - Fuji, Mauna Kea or Olympus. We look forward to greeting all freshmen with Link Crew, a peer support program that helps orient and transition new students to SVHS. Junior and senior Link Crew leaders meet freshmen on the first day of school and will follow up with peer mentoring activities throughout the year. Welcome freshmen and freshman families to Sonoma Valley High School!
Beginning dates for sports and cheer are on the "Back-to-School Registration Information" handout. Packets to sign up are available on the high school website, www.sonomaschools.org/SVHS or in the main office beginning August 1. Please remember that students will need a current physical to be able to participate in any athletic or cheer team.
Parents, we invite you to our campus and encourage you to play an active role in your student's education by participating in Dragon activities and community events. You are welcome to call (707) 933-4030 with inquiries, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. It's a great day to be a DRAGON!
