Whats New?

Welcome to SVMS

My name is Farah Galvez Theissen. I am honored to serve as your PTA President for the 2018/2019 school year. I have one child in the Scotts Valley Unified School District. His name is Wesley and he will be a 7th grader this year. My husband and I own a small business in town, located right next door to the district office, Globus New Media LLC. I am looking forward to working with the current PTA board members/chairpersons, Teachers, Staff, and the SVMS Community towards a successful school

I hope to meet you at the “BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT” September 6th, 2018. Below are some helpful hints to help make the year run smoothly.

This year is going to be a “challenge” on our SVMS campus. Construction is in full swing. That is both the bad news and the good news. Because of the construction, we will be having WEB and Reg. days at the Scotts Valley Community Center located at 360 Kings Village Rd in Scotts Valley.

Just shop like you normally do. When it comes time to checkout, instead of pulling out your credit card, pull out the Benefit app and purchase a digital gift card that you redeem instantly.

FAQs What is a COLOR RUN?

A Color Run is a fun run where participants run on a track as they are showered with color powder, making a fun, colorful event. What is the color powder made of? PurColour Celebration Powder is environmentally friendly and cornstarch based. No ecological hazards are associated with this product. It can be easily washed or blown from event areas.

What should students wear? Color Powder can stain cloths and the skin. Typical machine washing, with stain remover, removes the stains. Students may wear their PE clothes (It’s a Friday so they will bring them home to wash) or bring other clothes to wear specifically for the run. Students will not be allowed to wear their run clothes throughout the day.


How can parents participate? Parent volunteers will be needed to help pass out color and monitor runners. Please email:


What are we raising money for? We are raising money for two new color LED marquees. One will be placed on the side of the new gym, and one will be down at the corner of Bean Creek/SV Drive.


What about corporate matching? When making a donation on the FirstGiving site, it is possible to initiate a corporate match if your workplace participates.
