  • Upper Campus getting Going

    We are hoping that November is going to be opening month for our upper campus. The return of that space is going to give our students more opportunities to stretch out and be active at lunch. The basketball courts and the tennis courts and the larger pad will allow us not only more places to play but give our tennis squad a home court for the first time in decades. The ladies sure have earned it with a 4-3 win over DeAnza led by singles stars, Yvette Bennet and Shelby Burrows. Laila Ignacio and doubles team Sienna Sheridan and Emily King helped to clinch it for the Spartans

  • Book Club celebrates new Title

    A searing look at a true life story, the 57 is a story of an episode that occurred on the Oakland AC Transit bus that rocked the nation. Writer Dashka Slater, who came to Pinole Valley to speak two years back tells the story of identity and misunderstanding. The book is the first selection of our 2021-22 book club and we invite you to take part this Friday at lunch time in the library. Book Club is just one of the features of our library that has a great "book tasting" happening right now with English class and tutoring after school Tuesdays through Thursdays as well. Hoping you stop by and check it (and a book!) out

  • Mastering High School twice today!

    There are two meetings today for our Mastering High School crew. The first is our regularly scheduled meeting at lunch time and our second happens immediately after school. The former is ideal for our underclassmen and the p.m. It’s Mastering High School again! With a special meeting after school at 3:40pm in addition to our lunch meeting. We will be looking at 4 PIQ questions from the California University college applications. We will talk about what and how you should write for each PIQ and help guide students on the topics they should write about. The workshop is targeted towards Seniors and juniors but is VERY urgent for seniors to attend.

  • Spartan Students help Keep the City Sparkling

    The Interact Club does a lot of work for the school, this past weekend, they did a lot of work for the community, doing the Coastal Cleanup and making Pinole just a bit tidier. The youth branch of the Rotary Club is the school's premier service club and showed up to the annual civic event to make the city look its best. We look forward to more service and more fun in the months ahead. For now, thanks for the time and service, Interact!
