  • Spartans go to Elementary School

    Our WE Science team goes to local elementary schools to show how cool science is. And they do this, by doing hands on experiments. It gives the little ones a chance to work with the big kid they are going to become while at the same time, allowing our high school students to step into the role of a teacher. Students from Pinole Valley are bringing the best of the hands on work they createcd to dazzle, inspire and instruct our younger scientists to be, to come over and be part of WE when they arrive at Pinole Valley

  • Survey Says it's Time to Plan

    Where should the money go? What you decide so often is related to what you make your priority. Pinole Valley is looking for some student input (and we sent a link out for parent surveys) and we meet with our Instructional Leadership Team for some staff input with the goal being that all of these voices together will result in a more equitable and supportive school. And once the budget is in place, we will need your help on our School Site Council to help guide, adjust and ultimately maximize our budget so that everyone has a voice and a vote in how we use our resources best

  • Senior Moments

    The perfect season is hoping for a perfect finish. The Spartans are 5-0 in TCAL and looking to extend. Wednesday is more special than usual, as we host Senior Day at the ballpark. Join us for the ceremony and the joy as big Blue takes on rival El Cerrito beginning at 4:00 on the home field. We anticipate many more big baseball games this Spring but we have this one where the focus will be exclusively on the class of 2024 as they hope to turn that experience into more wins and more memories. See you at the park

  • Picture This

    The K-Pop club is making you the star. Wednesday during the Collaboration hour and then again at lunch, the crew will be out there with a photo booth and you and your friends have time to create images that will last a lifetime. So bring cash (cash only!) and a fun attitude and you can make this Wednesday into the picture day with style! And if you aim old school, get your hands on a Polaroid at the low price of $3. Did we mention cash only?

  • Baseball goes for a Perfect Six

    Great start of the season, and you will not want to miss out on this Friday, when the Spartans host St. Patricks here at the home field. The bats will in full effect Wednesday as big Blue hung a 17 run offense attack on the Bruins. Meanwhile the girls softball team hopes to even its series against Albany and that starts at the same time. So wherever you are, we will have Spartans on the basepaths and making noise

  • Try being a Comet

    We hosted our first concurrent enrollment day on Tuesday and will invite interested students to round two on April 16, but in the meantime, it is time for Spartans to sign up for Comet Day which happens later this month. Students who get to go will spend the day on the Contra Costa College campus and see what it is like to be part of a dynamic community college experience. We have a Friday deadline so don't miss out on your chance to find out what Comet Life is all about

  • Senior Day and So Much More

    Wednesday is the day you don't want to miss. If you are anywhere in town or on the road, it is not likely for you to miss. Let's start with Seniors first. If you come out to Contra Costa College pool at 4:30 you will see the Aqua Spartans taking their victory laps as they compete for one of the last times at the home pool. Then hustle back to school for the Badminton team hosting Hercules high and then we clear the gym for senior night and boys volleyball. All that and softball home vs. Albany in a big TCAL battle, baseball going for its fifth in a row league wise at St. Patricks, and golf. Are you in shape? The only way to lose is to not show up
