Seniors, your colleges will request your high school transcript. If you are planning on attending Cabrillo this will not be necessary to mail your transcript directly to the Cabrillo College registrar, but rather bring your copy of your transcript in hand, to your Cabrillo College counselor meeting.
- Complete Transcript Request Form
- Cost: $5.00 per transcript
- Name and address of where transcript is to be mailed
SENIORS: KEEP A POST HIGH SCHOOL FILE
It is VERY important for students to start building their college file box. Keep all future enrollment papers, make copies of everything and keep them safe, keep extra (unopened/sealed) transcripts for future use (you will need at least 4 sealed high school transcripts on hand over the next 6 years), make copies of your High School Diploma (don't loose this important document. Many employers, organizations and private colleges ask for a copy) save all financial aid correspondence. Once you begin acquiring college transcripts, keep these in your file box. There is a cost for replacements. It is wise for parents to have a duplicate file box if the student is moving away. Boxes tend to get lost in big moves! These are materials that you will need easy access to, from the time you graduate from high school, register for college, or until you become fully employed.
If your student will not be returning to CRHS for the 2015-16 school year, start now filling out your transcript request form, noting where you wish for your teen's transcript should be mailed to. Request two copies. One for your records and one sealed to the next school.
- Aquacultures Classroom Portfolio Award
Over 140 students enrolled in AP classes have participated in their end of year AP exam in Environmental Science, Calculus AB, English Literature, Spanish Language & Culture, Physics and US History over the last five days. Next week, we'll have another set of exam takers demonstrating their knowledge and ability to apply their studies in Biology, English Language & Composition, US Government and French Language & Culture. If they earn a score of "3 or Higher," students are able to earn college level credit at their universities.

SLV ATHLETICS NEED YOUR HELP!
Did you know that nearly 1 out every 8 students in the charter participates in at least one athletic program? Did you know that SLV is the only district in Santa Cruz County that is a NO PAY TO PLAY for sports due to the Booster and District Office support and cooperation?
Charter students are currently participating on almost every sport team offered in the district.
Soccer, Cross-Country, Track, Swimming, Diving, Water-Polo, Golf, Volleyball, Baseball, Softball, and Football.
How does SLV School District pay for sports?
The District Office, Athletic Boosters and Individual Team Sports ASB accounts pay for the SLV High School athletic program.
What do the Boosters pay for?
Sports Facility Repair and Improvements
Bingo is the Athletic Boosters’ main source of revenue. It raises approximately $10,000 a month that goes to both our Boosters’ general
fund and to individual sports. Bingo is played every Monday night of the year in the Portuguese Hall which is located in Santa Cruz between Costco and Harvey West Park. Bingo raises money for sports in two ways. The first is through a dedicated core team of parents that
volunteer one Monday each month to run bingo. They generate money for the Boosters general fund. The second way is by giving money directly to a sport. Every sport gets assigned bingo night(s). Four parents from that sport are asked to work bingo for one night. The Boosters then deposits $500.00 into that sport’s ASB account for each bingo night worked.
SUPPORT YOUR COACH BY VOLUNTEERING WHEN ASKED TO WORK BINGO. THIS IS HOW YOU CAN SUPPORT YOUR TEAM PLAYER(S)!
***WANTED*** Our Bingo core team needs parents! (commitment: one Monday evening a month). Also needed, one to three people to take over the operation of Bingo. Currently most of our core team and operational manager are parents whose children have graduated. Remember, Bingo raises the most money for SLVHS sports.
Our parents and community members do so much to support our students, and I urge you to help out if you have been "meaning to" but have not quite yet jumped into something. Thanks for your help!
DEAR PARENTS OF 2015 GRADUATING SENIORS:
The Grad Night Committee has been hard at work fundraising in order to make June 12th a night our kids won't forget, but we need your help with two of our main sources of funding:
It's time to buy your child's bid to attend Grad Night! Send in a check for $75 made payable to Grad Night 2015, give it to Jeannette Lange in the SLV Counseling Office. Please don't delay paying for your child's ticket to Grad Night: we depend on ticket sales in order to pay deposits on entertainment for the event and we don't want to start cutting items from our budget due to lack of funds.

Grad Night 2015
Promoting a "Safe & Sober" Graduation Celebration
The SLV "Grad Night Class of 2015" Committee is fundraising for this year's Grad Night. Nationwide, the Senior Prom and graduation nights have the highest fatality rates of any night for teenagers. This is why the parents and community in the San Lorenzo Valley have continued for nearly 30 years, put on a "Safe and Sober" Grad Night celebration for the graduating senior.
It isn't enough to just put on a Grad Night. We take pride in providing a thrilling, unique event which transforms the SLV campus into a world of carnival rides, casinos, and other entertainments. The success of this event has enabled us to maintain a 90% attendance rate, keeping graduates safe while having a great time.
Any business or person who donates to any of our events will have their name or business listed on a large sign that will be out up at every fundraising event and Grad Night itself, thanking them for supporting our youth. This will give you maximum exposure for your business.
