Sister School Program

San Ramon Valley Council of PTAs

 

  • Sister School is a district-wide program sponsored by the San Ramon Valley Council of PTAs.  Iron Horse Middle School is partnered with Riverside Elementary in Richmond.

 

  • This philanthropic program benefits the students of the San Ramon Valley Unified School District by fostering civic responsibility, enhancing community engagement, promoting volunteerism, and by teaching the joy of helping others in need.

 

  • This goal is accomplished by partnering each school in the SRVUSD with a partner school in a neighboring disadvantaged area of the East Bay.  Through collaborative determination of need, schools in the SRVUSD conduct a minimum of one to two drives and/or fundraisers per year for items that benefit the children of their partner schools.

 

The Iron Horse community, through its leadership from the Student Leadership Class and PTA, try to provide a bit of sunshine in children's lives.  Our students and families generously donate funds and time to provide Thanksgiving meals for these families, bring them warm coats and sweaters, or sit down and read with them while sharing milk and cookies.  This community outreach program shows these families that we care and our students and families know that they're making a difference.

 

Thank you very much for your generous donations and time!
