    thank you rotary club!

    Did you know that one of the many generous ways in which the Rotary Club of Scotts Valley supports SVUSD is by sponsoring our annual Welcome Back Breakfast?  They even present the Principals with checks at this event!  The District is now a proud corporate member of the Scotts Valley Rotary and our Superintendent, Tanya Krause, has been attending the meetings regularly.  group
