We welcome  Jean Twenge, Ph.D, professor of Psychology at San Diego State University and author of iGen: Why Today's Super-Connected Kids Are Growing Up Less Rebellious, More Tolerant, Less Happy--and Completely Unprepared for Adulthood (and What That Means for the Rest of Us). She will share her extensive research on the generation that follows (and perhaps slightly overlaps) the Millennials. They are coined iGens and they don't remember a time before the Internet and grew up with smartphones and social media. Jean will give us insight and perspective on understanding the truth vs. myths of generational changes and the culture that produced them. Come join us for Jean's presentation and book signing!

Sister School Toy Drive

THANK YOU!

Thank you to the DVHS community for showing your compassion by bringing in gifts for the students of our sister school, Futures Elementary, this holiday season. With your generous donation we were able to collect approximately 324 toys. Thank you to our DVHS PTSA Sister School Program Chair, Jenny Chang, for coordinating the entire effort. 

 

A special thank you goes out to DVHS Interact club, Leadership team and CSF for helping PTSA promote and help with the collection process! DVHS understands that giving is better than receiving.

Legislative Advocacy Update

High School Voter Registration

California State celebrated High School Voter Education during the last two weeks of April. To encourage and support local students and schools, Contra Costa County has created a free, mobile texting tool just for high school students. Using this program, Contra Costa County students 16 and up can preregister and those 18 and older can register to vote.

DIRECTIONS:
1-Text your school name to: 2Vote (28683)
2- Receive a reply text with a link to quick, easy voter registration tools.

Additional election-related resources specifically for younger voters (mock elections on youth-oriented topics, poll worker opportunities, HS voter registration drive ideas) can be found on the California Secretary of State website. 

NEW TEEN DRIVER EDUCATION PROGRAM AT SRVUSD SCHOOLS


New Teen Driver Education Program to Emphasize Safety at San Ramon Valley Unified Schools

SRVUSD will implement a new system for students who wish to obtain on-campus parking permits that emphasizes traffic safety. Beginning in the 2018-2019 school year, the SRVUSD in partnership with Street Smarts and the California Highway Patrol (CHP)  will sponsor free two hour CHP Start Smart classes. Students and their parent/guardian must attend one free two hour CHP Start Smart class in order to be eligible for a parking permit at all SRVUSD High Schools.

 

The Start Smart presentations provide an opportunity for teens and their parents/guardians to discuss the serious laws, obligations, responsibilities and family expectations that are part of driving a vehicle.  The goal is to promote and create safe driving habits around SRVUSD schools.

 

The Start Smart presentations will begin in the 2017-2018 year for parking pass eligibility in the 2018-19 school year. At this class, officers from the California Highway Patrol will discuss traffic avoidance techniques, collision causing factors, driver/parent responsibilities and seatbelt usage. All SRVUSD comprehensive high schools will offer 3-4 free classes each year that are open to anyone. The class must only be taken once during a student’s high school career.
