#114 - Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District


The Livermore Valley Joint Unified School Districtís Board of Education which includes Board President Stewart Gary and Board Trustees Bill Dunlop, Chuck Rogge, and Anne White accompanied by Superintendent of Schools Kelly Bowers, Assistant Superintendent Mike Martinez, and Executive Director of Fiscal Services Susan Kinder. Joining the Board and Superintendent are students and parents from Rancho Las Positas Elementary School.

On Wednesday, September 16, the Governorís Fitness Challenge named Rancho Las Positas Elementary School, Californiaís Elementary School of the Year. Rancho was represented in Sacramento by its entire fourth and fifth grade student body, teachers, office staff, principal and running club coordinators. Rancho school accepted the honor but chose not to accept the award of $100,000 in fitness equipment. Instead Rancho opted to give it away to another deserving school community less fortunate than its own. Rancho School is proud to honor its students and staff for their hard work but equally as proud to acknowledge the giving and caring spirit that makes up the school community.

Recognition of the Rancho community is a shining example of all the remarkable accomplishments seen throughout the entire District.
