Honorary Service Award
Each year Stone Valley Middle School PTA recognizes several individuals or groups for
outstanding service to youth in our community through the Honorary Service Awards Program. Please think OUTSIDE THE BOX and nominate someone you feel has contributed to the welfare of children and youth in a significant way.
This person could be a teacher, a staff member, a parent volunteer, a Scout leader, a coach...or even an organization that you feel deserves recognition. A committee comprised of PTA members and school staff will review all nominations received and select honorees accordingly. Awards will be given at a ceremony during the final week of the school year.

It is Your Turn to work at the 8th grade Promotion Party
Stone Valley has a tradition of the 6th & 7th-grade parents chaperoning the 8th Grade Promotion Party, so that when your student is in 8th Grade, you will not need to be there. (In 8th grade this is very important to your student!)
Please let us know if you can work on Saturday June 6th from 7-10pm here in the MPR Room, or any part thereof. We appreciate you Paying it Forward and keeping the Tradition alive!

From the Principal’s office…
Dear Stone Valley Community,
I am delighted to serve as interim principal through the end of the school year. I have been a part of the SRVHS community since 1995 when we moved here from Seattle, WA. Our two girls,, Allison and Katie, attended Sycamore Elementary, Charlotte Wood, and SRVHS. Both girls have now graduated from college and employed.Allison, 28, works in San Francisco as Account Manager for Dropbox. Katie, 26, works in social work for the city of LA with the Gang Reduction and Youth Development office at City Hall. My husband, Brad and I enjoy traveling, hiking, kayaking, bicycling, snow skiing and snowshoeing around the Bay Area, and in particular the Tahoe region. I taught English in middle school before the girls were born. After moving to California, I finished my Administration Credential at St. Mary’s. I have served as middle school AP at Iron Horse and Thomas Hart Middle School in Pleasanton. Moving from Iron Horse, I served as elementary principal both at Greenbrook and Country Club. I retired in June; however I filled in at SV as AP until Mrs. Kontillas was hired in the fall. Now, as interim principal, I am very excited to share all the spring activities with our students, staff, and parents. Working with all stakeholders, I am committed to providing our students with the best educational opportunity possible. I am enjoying getting to know our students and parent groups and look forward to a productive 4th quarter, moving forward with Common Core, CAASP testing, technology, registration for next year, and all of the exciting activities that spring holds. Thank you for your support of Stone Valley. Your partnership is important to me; to all of us to ensure the success of your student. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to meeting you!
Mrs. Jenise Falk
