EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS KITS
Our Sister School needed emergency toilet kits to facilitate school lockdowns. To raise funds for buying Emergency Preparedness Kits, we did a Penny War in December 2019. BV students actively participated in this program and we were able to raise more than $700 from this drive. With the penny war donations from families, we were able to purchase emergency toilet kits for the school. Principal John Shimko of Lorenzo Manor Elementary expressed his gratitude to the students, staff, and families of Bella Vista. Go Trailblazers!!!
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.
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.
