San Ramon Valley Events – February 2015

A topic of conversation that comes up for me on a regular basis is our wonderful school district. I speak with families all the time who want to move here because San Ramon Valley Unified is so highly rated, and has such a great reputation. Most of the credit for this high level of excellence goes to the wonderful teachers, and staff in the schools and the district, who work very hard to provide the best possible education for our children.

It’s important to also recognize that school districts don’t become so highly rated on their own. They need the constant support and involvement from parents and the community. Credit also needs to be given to the parents, families and community members who take the time to be involved in our children’s education.

I am very thankful to live in such a strong community, and I appreciate of all the effort and hard work that has contributed to making SRVUSD one of the best.

As always thank you for taking the time to read our newsletter, and if you have an event coming up that you would like us to include, please let us know.

The Ladies Man

Tickets: $20.00 – $28.00
SHOWS 2:00pm, 8:00pm
Village Theater
233 Front Street
Danville, CA

In Belle Epoque Paris, the recently married Dr. Hecule Molineaux tells “one, tiny, little, hardly noticeable lie” to cover an innocent but embarrassing indiscretion. From that single untruth tumbles a cascade of increasingly convoluted deceptions, misunderstandings and mistaken identities. Embracing the true essence of the chase, The Ladies Man literally spins out of control and will leave you dizzy with zany joy.
