Dear SVMS Athletic Parents,
After school sports are very important to the growth and development of many students. Lessons learned from participating in school athletics are priceless! These include learning new skills, discipline, camaraderie, school spirit and a sense of belonging.
Scotts Valley Middle School relies solely on parent support for after school sports. It costs approximately $100.00 per athlete to run each team. Your $100.00 donation pays for CCAL tournament and referee fees, coaches’ stipends, equipment, uniforms and their maintenance, and other costs.
We value our students and their activities and we know that your time in inclusive. Instead of multiple fundraising efforts, we ask that you simply donate your tax deductible funds to help support your child in our award winning athletic program. If using a check, please write it out to SVMS and indicate your child's sport in the memo section.
It takes a village!
Thank you so much!
