Night With the Stars

Honoring Our Shining Stars

On May 7, 2018, the San Ramon Valley Education Foundation celebrated a Shining Star from each San Ramon Valley Education Foundation Affiliate at the Blackhawk Museums. During the evening we also honored our 2017-18 Teachers of the Year for SRVUSD and Classified Employee of the Year. In addition to recognizing exceptional people, we shared the important role of the Foundations at our schools as well as the new and exciting things that are happening at SRVEF.

It was a fun night where parents, teachers, administrators, community members and our steadfast supporters networked, all while learning more about our organization and how we are Investing in a World Class Educational Experience.

Please mark your calendars for Monday, April 29, 2019 to honor our Shining Stars for 2018/19.
