  • Artist of the Day: Serenity Redondo

    Serenity's portfolio design depicts a broken heart being put back together by two butterflies. The text reveals the artist's inner dialogue; affirmations she will read every time she opens her portfolio to store her artwork. "You are not too broken to be healed." The path to healing is not linear and emotions ebb and flow. The artist's message is a hopeful one , having the wisdom to know she has everything she needs within her. The organic shapes of the vine, butterflies, and flowers contrast well with the geometric shapes of the lettering. Notice the smooth blending in the transitions between colors. Good art makes you feel and relate with what is being communicated.

  • Engineering Academy hosts Civil Engineer

    As part of our vision to make the connections between school and community come to life, Pinole Valley was honored to welcome Thomas Shastid, a civil engineer to the campus to speak to our sophomores and juniors enrolled in our Principals of Engineering course. The students have been doing entry level work as teammates toward projects, which meant that their questions toward the pro, were better informed and more applicable than they would have been even weeks before. We encourage our students to get out into the world and invite the world to come to our campus to see what it is we are doing to prepare our students. When the "real world" makes a visit, we make our school a more relevant and "real" place for them too.

  • Spartan Football is on a roll

    Pinole Valley is getting ready for the Tri County Athletic League portion of the schedule by starting to fire on all cylinders. The Varsity completed a sweep of rival Alhambra High School Friday night by taking the lead late and holding on to turn back the Bulldogs by a score of 35-19. James Gordon was player of the game, putting up big numbers on both offense and defense. Big Blue enjoyed a happy home evening with band, choir, dance and color guard making the new field a happy place for the sellout crowd. The next week is a bye for the Spartans, by the time we are back on the field, it will be a Saturday tilt October 8 against Salesian. PV returns home for two in a row hosting El Cerrito on homecoming and then DeAnza the week after for senior night. Time to get ready for games that count toward a playoff run for Pinole Valley

  • A Little Live Rocks the Quad

    The Pinole Valley rock experience hit the quad Friday at lunch time playing a great set that had people grooving to the sounds and sights of Adam Liddicoat and Kazuma Minton. This marks the third time, the duo has played on stage and we enjoyed the mix of original songs and some covers. The energy at lunch is a happy one with kids going to their clubs, enjoying movies in the library or hanging out enjoying the sounds of A Little Live once again.

  • Spartan Sports continue epic Fall

    It's been the rise of Pinole Valley this Fall. Girls tennis is off to the best season start in a decade with a 3-0 record after turning back Vallejo High 7-0 on Thursday. The girls have two non-league opponents this next week and then return to the TCAL foes to try to wrap up the first flag in that sport in years. The volleyball girls are 7-1 as they head into a busy week, the ladies are going to be home Tuesday, and would love to see you there. Cross Country season starts this Thursday and the boys above are already scoring personal bests. Football plays Alhambra tonight in a double header while water polo doubled up Dougherty Valley in a scrimmage and is back in the pool at CCC this upcoming Tuesday

  • Artist of the Day: Kaleo Lopez

    Students were asked to demonstrate 1 point perspective using their name as part of the design. They also experimented with several colored pencil techniques. Kaleo's mix of warm and cool colors creates contrast and allows your eye to weave in and out of his name. He creates a variety of values using 1 colored pencil, applying colored pencil with a lot of pressure creates a paint-like effect (burnishing).

  • Artist of the Day: Barbara Jaime

    Barbara created a cloth barrier between the viewer and the subject. Additionally, there is emphasis on the color, which conveys emotion and gives a feeling of being underwater. We feature each of our Artists of the Day on the morning announcements and share that with the school and the community. Some of this year's art may go on our year end calendar. Look for it! It's the images that will look sharp.

  • Senior Boat Cruise time

    For this boat to float, we need everyone to get their tickets soon. The senior boat cruise is a tradition that only happens if we can sell enough tickets to set the boat afloat. Come to the cashier's office after today and put down your payment to reseve your spot. The dress code is semi formal and the cruise is a lovely one that travels the bay and under the bridge. Join us if you can, class of 23 for a night you won't forget.
