  • We have the Spirit--now you do too!

    Every day is a day to celebrate as we enter the last few days of our school year. On Tuesday, it is beach day, wear your shorts, your shades and your tropical best. Then Wednesday it is time to mosey to school in Western wear. You don't have to be a cowboy to look the part. Then Thursday it is Dress Like Kibby Day, when you get here you will find that being well dressed is out of fashion. Then Friday it is Spartan spirit celebration. Break out the uniforms, t shirts and gear that identifies you as part of the squad. We love to see you in high spirits all week, Spartans

  • Conditioning Begins now

    Pinole Valley is poised to be the Wrestling capital of the District and we are looking to reload for the 2024-25 school year. One of the things we love about the sport is that it fits all types. Any size, any shape, any gender, there is a match for you, and coach Armando is the best. A true ambassador to the activity. Meanwhile we have girls volleyball getting ready for their season with conditioning in the gym Tuesday while boys basketball starts their climb back with track time today and gym time on Thursday. Look and listen for more all season long

  • Get moving this Summer

    Whether you are spending June in summer school or just exploring the East Bay, Ms. Casey and the Health Center are distruting bus passes to students who qualify through the upcoming school week. The best time to get connected is at lunch, and if you qualify, your summer travels can be made much easier and much more affordable with this pass. Sometimes students get no momthly pass, even though they qualify, because they did not take the last step to pick up their monthly pass. Make sure you don't sleep on this opportunity, otherwise you may find yourself more grounded than you choose

  • We celebrate our Languages this week

    The pathway for our Limited English learners comes through Pinole Valley this Monday May 20. Students who are being homored are the ones who are going to be redesignated as Fully English Proficient. This means that the students will no lomger call on their EL supports. What an accomplishment! It means that while the student was learning a whole new language, they were also learing the Math, Science, Art and History classes that their peers must, but in their second or third language. We will be hosting the ceremony in our outdoor quad an then breaking bread in the cafeteria. That same night, our busy campus hosts the Health Academy's end of the year banquet and our monthly PTSA meeting. See you at--everything
