Having experienced the transition from 5th grade to 6th grade for the two years in a row with both of my
daughters, I would like to pass along some tips for your soon-to-be 6th grader!

    •   Teach them how to use a combination lock over the summer
    •   Be sure to mark down the WEB (Welcome EveryBody) days; August 20 (A-L) and August 21 (M-Z).
        WEB days are a great opportunity for them to see how the campus operates. Also, they have an
        opportunity to buy a “binder reminder” on WEB days, so send them with money and their registration
        packets. When they get their class schedules in August, take them up to the middle school and show
        them where they will be going from room to room. This will familiarize them with the campus as well.
    •   Teach them how to use the pay phone on campus.
    •   Teach them how to use the water vending machine.
    •   If possible, review keyboarding skills over the summer. There are some good software programs that
        teach keyboarding skills; ask your child’s 5th grade teacher for a recommendation.
    •   “Summer Math Skills Sharpeners” are a wonderful way to keep up math over the summer. A student
        who has just completed 5th grade should use a fifth-grade review book. However, consult your child’s
        math teacher for the appropriate math level. To review Tri-C Publications products, visit their website
        at or call them at 888-595-6595.
    •   Remind your child once school starts that they need to bring their gym clothes home for washing every
    •   Watch for the Dolphin Newsletter, which will be mailed in late August.
    •   You can get a GREAT campus overview by reading the beginning section of your child’s binder
        reminder. This includes school starting & finishing times, as well as break times.
    •   Mark your calendars now for Wednesday, September 3rd, as our first day of school (full day).
    •   Remember that SVMS Registration packets will be available at the SVMS office August 11-15 – mark
        your calendars now.
    •   RELAX – Middle School Years are a great experience at SVMS

Just as the monthly treats have been eagerly anticipated and enjoyed with delight by our wonderful
SVMS faculty and staff, what a “Monthly Treat” it has been for Jackie Heald, Rosanna Wright,
Kathryn Vroomen and myself to chair this committee! As we move on to SVHS with Brieanna,
Samantha and Sarah (Elizabeth and Shauna are already there), we wish to thank ALL the wonderful
parents who helped provide goodies over this past year catering to our whims and themes, and also to
the staff for acting as guinea pigs for our sometimes creative offerings! In the future we will often
be reminded of times spent with GOOD FOOD, GOOD FRIENDS and GOOD COMPANY!

                               Way to go SVMS 6th graders!
Kudos to all those who represented SVMS so well at the International Games. Your outstanding
performance, once again, demonstrates your dedication and commitment to athletics and your school.
Thank you to Lark Pifferini and Emily Martin for their direction and coaching. Special congratulations
to Laura Balch and Dylan Tansy for earning the Outstanding Female/Male Athlete Recognition!! You
are awesome !

                 So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen……
        It is that time – we are in the final days of our five years serving as the Scotts Valley
Middle School Volunteer Coordinators. They have been fun and exciting years for us, getting to
know the students, staff and parents. Both of us have thoroughly enjoyed planning, coordinating, and
trouble-shooting events, big and small, that have taken place over our time here.
        We truly have appreciated the donations of time, money and energy from all the parents
that have enabled us to be so successful. Our successes are your successes - with all of us working
together, each taking a little part of the big picture, it has allowed wonderful “things” to happen.
Sometimes we have had to call upon many of you on really short notice and you have come through
time after time – Thank you!
        Thank you too, to the faculty and staff for working so cooperatively with us. Always sharing
their thoughts and ideas, Principal Lonhart and her predecessor, Mr. Chris McGriff, channeled our
energy and enthusiasm in the right direction always working with us. Scotts Valley Middle School has
encouraged our children to learn and grow and take a few chances in a safe environment thus
allowing them to spread their wings. As they move on to high school and their next stage in life, a
piece of our hearts will always remain with all of you.

8th GRADE COMMENCEMENT                                 FINAL UPDATE:
Here are some important dates:

June 10th: Great America Trip
June 11th: Commencement Rehearsal and Lunch 8:30-2:30 Siltanen Park
June 12th: 8th Grade Awards Assembly, 1:00, SVMS front lawn
June 13th: Commencement Ceremony 3:00 Vine Hill Amphitheater
A video of the ceremony will be available to purchase through Crystal Clear Video (details will be provided in your
invitation) we will also be having professional photos taken by Geoff Ward of Quick Pix at the ceremony and dance.
They will be available to purchase on their website:
June 13th: Commencement Party/Dance 8:00-11:00 pm SVMS Pavilion.
We have a really fun Party/Dance planned for the kids. Please encourage your child to attend (they don’t have to
dance)! Adults are very welcome to come see the Pavilion decorations after June 6th (contact one of us for times).
The Pavilion will also be open for adults to view approximately one hour before the dance, so plan to come check it
out but remember if you come early, the theme needs to be kept a secret and no 8th grade parents allowed after
June 14th: (morning) Party/Dance Clean Up.
If you have signed up to help with something, please follow through on your commitment. We are depending on you
to show up. Decoration workdays have been scheduled for May and will also begin after June 6th. Please
contact me to find out days and times to help out.

We need medium to large artificial or real plants to use at the dance. You can drop them off at the Pavilion after
June 6th (put your name on them) and pick them up after the dance or the next morning.

Well, commencement day is almost here. I don’t know about you but I feel like this year has flown by! We are
planning to obtain a very nice trophy case for the school and will donate any additional money left in our account as
a financial gift for the school to use. We will be having a free raffle of photo collages and decorations for the kids at
the dance.

 I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the families, individuals and businesses who have provided support
for this event; The Scotts Valley Kiwanis, Gigi’s Bakery, Rich Fontana/Ledyards, The Wright Family/Mission
Springs Catering, Bamboo Giant Nursery, Hallcrest Vineyards, R.W. James Packaging, SV Round Table
Pizza and the SVMS PTA for their generous $1,500 donation.

I would like to especially thank all the committee chairpersons, members, and all volunteers for all their hard
work. Also, thank you to all of you who have been so generous with your donations, 131 families have donated
so far and thanks to some extra generosity we were able to meet our budget.
You are the Best!

We are still asking for all 8th grade parents to make a donation to fund the promotion.
The estimated cost per student is $25, but any amount you can afford would be greatly appreciated.
If you still need to send in your donation, please fill out the attached form (this will be your last chance!)

Any questions or suggestions? Contact me at 438-4514 or

On behalf of Your 8th Grade Graduation Committee Representatives: Darshana Croskrey, Debby Elliott, LaVeta
Lipscomb, and myself, We Thank You Sincerely, Sherry Luttrell

Thanks to those cyclists that completed the Century Ride on
behalf of the Scotts Valley Educational Foundation! Riders left
Scotts Valley Middle School early Saturday morning and made it
into Big Sur in the early afternoon. Each cyclist gathered
donations from our generous community with a minimum
amount of $500.00 per rider. Thank you to our own SVMS
teacher John Magliato for participating in this new event. We
look forward to even more participants next year!
