Dear Scotts Valley Schools Supporter:
As the beginning of the school year approaches, we believe we have much to be thankful for here in Scotts Valley. In spite of continued budget reductions, our students are thriving, as evidenced by the amazing test scores we saw this spring. With generous donations from our community and through our various fundraisers, the Scotts Valley Educational Foundation has been able to give back over $280,000 to our schools the past 2 years! Our Endowment Fund has grown to more than XXXXXXX, and we continue to make annual contributions so that it will continue to grow. To help us continue to raise enough money to fund these very critical needs and programs, we need your ongoing support.
During 2012-2013, SVEF donated over $183,000 to support crucial programs and services:
· $44,000 to provide counseling services at all four schools
· $55,000 kept the libraries open at each school
· $30,000 to support technology needs on each campus
· $21,000 built an adaptive playground for our pre-K students
· $32,000 funded a part-time GLAD coach to train ALL our teachers
For the upcoming school year 2013-2014 we are donating over $100,000 to support crucial programs and services: allowing the libraries at each school to remain open and continue our Counseling services for Math and Literacy.
Please consider making your tax-deductible donation today. We also need volunteers to help support our various fundraisers, The Christmas Tree Lot, Community Partners Program and Mountain Charlie Challenge.
And last but not least, if you would be interested in learning more about Board positions, volunteering a short portion of your time on special projects or if you’d like to support our great events – The Christmas Tree Lot, Community Partner Program or the Mountain Charlie Challenge.

The Scotts Valley Educational Foundation is honored to announced the Lynn Beebe College Counseling Grant, providing selected Scotts Valley High School students with financial assistance to obtain professional counseling and guidance as they plan for acceptance into college.
Lynn was a long-time and much loved SVUSD staff member. Her years of service to the students here included teaching, counseling, athletic coaching as well as athletic director. In her latter years she embarked on a new career as an independent, private college counselor. After her death in early 2012, SVEF collected donations in her honor and worked with her parents Jack and Jan Beebe to establish the grant and place it into an endowment fund. Lynn took great pride in connecting with students and helping them navigate the path to a successful future, and the endowment will ensure the grant’s perpetuity, keeping alive Lynn’s passion and dedication to students.
Applications for the Lynn Beebe College Counseling Grant will be available to SVHS students starting in March 2013, with the first recipients announced in May. Continued donations will enable an increased number of SVHS students to be served.
