ED Fund launches the EASY button!
Kicks off 2013/14 CSR campaign
We all wish we had an EASY button.....now YOU do! At the Ed Fund we call it the “DONATE” button.
With the launch of our EASY button, we kick off our 2013/14 Class Size Reduction Campaign (CSR). Our Goal is to fund 12 sections of Academic Core and Grade Level Math classes. To achieve this goal we need to raise $185K dollars.
Why Donate to CSR?
One of the biggest impacts you can have on a child’s education is to lower the student teacher ratio and that is exactly what your your tax-deductible donations do! Without your donations we simply would not have these resources as middle school is the only part of the CA public education system that does not receive additional financial support for class size reduction. WE NEED YOU!
For the past 20 years, parent donations have enhanced the quality of education at SVMS through CSR. Last year your donations enabled us to fund 13 sections across all grades resulting in about 5-7 fewer students per teacher. These smaller classes encourage more student participation, provide more one-on-one learning opportunities and assist in a smooth, successful transition into middle school.
How much can I give? (as much as you want!)
●Suggested Donation - $595/ per child
●Circle of Pride - $850/per child
●Presidential Pride - $1,500/ per child
●**King of the Pride - $15,000 - NEW THIS YEAR (fund an entire section - corporate donation)
We truly appreciate your generous donations. If you would like more information or to talk personally to me about Ed Fund and our CSR Campaign please feel free to give me a call. (925) 787.9585

2013/2014 School Year - 7th Grade Students We Need Proof of Tdap!
All students entering, advancing or transferring into 7th grade will need proof of an adolescent whooping cough booster immunization (called “Tdap”) for school in the fall. This requirement applies to all public and private schools. The new requirement was signed into law in 2010.
In 2010, California experienced its worst outbreak of pertussis in more than half a century, with more than 9,000 confirmed cases and 10 infant deaths. The new immunization requirement is intended to help reduce the spread of whooping cough among California’s youth. Most children are fully protected prior to entering kindergarten because of the DTaP vaccine, a vaccine made for younger children. However, protection to these diseases wears off and preteens and teens may be at risk for catching this dangerous disease without a booster.
The Tdap requirement affects all incoming 7th grade students in California, so it’s important to avoid the back-to-school rush and to get our children vaccinated now. Tell other parents with children in the 6th grade about the requirement and encourage them to schedule the shot early, before summer.
Remember, in addition to the Tdap booster, there are several important vaccines recommended for preteens and teens including the meningococcal vaccine, a second chickenpox shot (if they never had chickenpox disease), and the HPV vaccine series. Everyone older than six months old is recommended to receive a seasonal flu vaccine.
The California Department of Public Health and the California Department of Education have been working collaboratively on this important measure. Information on the new Tdap requirement, including information on where to get free or low cost vaccines, forms, and FAQs are available at www.ShotsForSchool.org.
