Volunteer Opportunity:  The Danville Library has a volunteer opportunity for teenagers to be a part of their Teen Advisory Board.  Creative, energetic teen volunteers will play an active role in developing teen programs, expanding the young adult collection, and improving teen services at the Danville Library.  Our new Teen Zone was a direct result of the efforts of a previous Teen Advisory Board.  Applicants must be able to attend monthly board meetings (typically the fourth Tuesday of the month 4:00-5:00 pm) October 2019 through June 2020 and volunteer to assist with at least one library program.  Applications are due on September 20.  Pick up a copy of the application in the College and Career Center or download it from School Loop. 

Need help with NAVIANCE?    Send an email to Mrs. Schratz at jschratz@srvusd.net or Mrs. Woerner at swoerner@srvusd.net or via School Loop Mail with your name (student) and your concern.  We will help you get logged in. 

COMMUNICATIONS.  We utilize this Wolf Pack Weekly newsletter and our C&CC web pages to keep parents informed of College and Career Center activities, and Naviance and School Loop to inform students.  Please stay “in the know” by checking our postings. 

The best way to reach C&CC advisors is via email, but if you leave a voice message, we will return your call as soon as we can.  925.552.3007.   We apologize if we are delayed in getting back to you, as our fall is packed with college events and student meetings, but we WILL respond!
