  • Transitions--This week all but the front office is going to be off-limits as the construction kicks into high gear.  The folk working on the interim campus are also going to be moving items boxed up in June to our new home in time for August.  We are making the decisions about what comes with us, what is going to be placed in storage and what we leave behind.  Tough choices!  But with it, a chance to start anew too.  Like our students, we are deciding whether to continue with established protocols or take advantage of the new year to begin a different approach.  Not a bad lesson for adults either; how hard it is to change habits, to try a novel approach or even to tweak an old method and see if it can be improved.  We are using the last of our time on the old campus to run copies and gather material for our walk through registration.  Spirits are high as all of us look around and imagine how we can do things better.  We want you, the community to be a part of that dialogue as well.  So when you see us in early August, let us know what you see--"this is how we've always done it" is something that we know we are going to leave behind!

It's summer time! The office will be open from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. every day. But walk carefully, there's construction going on!

 Inside Pinole Valley--Mid Summer Edition
  • We are still open for business.  The office staff is here from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m..
  • Master schedule at work!  We are working to build a schedule that allows us to hit the ground running in August.  A last few moves before we're ready to publish.
  • Moving day is on its way.  We anticipate the movers taking classroom material that has been boxed up to the new campus during the next fortnight.
  • Get ready for the Road to Sparta!  We have named some of our new routes and roads through the Interim campus.  We are celebrating our name and heritage.  We think you'll be tickled too.
  • Ready for walk through?  We are going to need some volunteers for our walk through registration.  Let Principal Kibby Kleiman know if you can assist us on August 6 or 7.
  • We are looking for home(s) for an Exchange student.  Pinole Valley is happy to host, but our world travelers would need a place to call home.  Let the principal know if you would be willing to make this year, an international one.
  • High profile--we want to be part of the community now more than ever.  If you know of a city event, and that our students can assist or take part it, we want to be a part of it.  We look forward to being a community resource in 2014-2015.  We are hosting a candidates night.  Maybe we can host you, too!
