Snacks for CAASPP test days

 

We were able to raise over 2,300 servings of snacks for our sister school. Thanks to everyone that participated in the Sister Snack drive. Lorenzo Manor Elementary School Kids will get these snacks on the CAASPP test days. We received a total 36 bags of snacks.  Congratulations to Kindergarten for winning the lower league by raising five bags of snacks and also for third grade for winning the top league by raising ten bags of snacks. Winner grades will get extra free recess on Wednesday 4/24/2018 (TBD). Apart from that, he held close to 500 servings of snacks to serve to the students at Bella Vista students on the CAASPP test days.

 

SURVIVAL KITS/ EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS KITS

 

To raised funds for buying Emergency Preparedness Kits, we started a penny war. We were able to raise more than $600 from this drive. With the penny war donations from families, we were able to purchase 77 first aid. We also provided 100 small goodie bags with a mini bottle of hand sanitizer and a mini first aid kit which were donated by Walgreens.  We also provided 21 brand new backpacks that have brand new notebooks and school supplies inside for students who require support in having these types of items for school.

Sister School Program

Overview

The Sister School Program is a district-wide, PTA-sponsored program that began in 1994 as Cross County Books/Clothes. Currently, the majority of San Ramon Valley Unified District (SRVUSD) schools participate in the program. These schools will partner with schools located in Richmond, San Pablo, Antioch, Pittsburg, Concord, Hayward, and Oakland. Each participating school/PTA unit in the SRVUSD has a Sister School Representative coordinating the program.

Mission

The Sister School philanthropic program benefits the students of the San Ramon Valley Unified School District (SRVUSD) by fostering civic responsibility, enhancing community engagement, promoting volunteerism, and by teaching the joy of helping others in need. We achieve this goal by partnering each school in the SRVUSD with a partner school in a neighboring disadvantaged area of the East Bay. Through collaborative determination of need, schools in the SRVUSD conduct a minimum of two drives and fundraisers per year for items that benefit the children of their sister schools.
