10/13: PTA Meeting Tonight!

PTA meeting tonight at 6:30pm in the Library. We’re introducing monthly forums at tonight’s meeting. Tonight’s topic is lice and lice treatment.

Have you dealt with lice in your home? Are you tired of repeat events? Do you want to learn more about lice prevention and treatment? Come and learn more about how to prevent lice, how lice mature, how lice transmits and how to treat it effectively from Kathy Wingate of Hair Bears Lice Treatment Salon. We’ll treat this subject seriously, but with a little humor.

This week at Proctor

2/1 – Pennies for Patients:

Starting today, Proctor Terrace Elementary School is participating in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Pennies for Patients program; a service-learning program that gives students the unique experience of working together to help raise awareness and funds in honor of thousands of children and adults fighting against blood cancers!  We are asking that everyone (students,faculty, parents, alumni, etc.) at Proctor Terrace Elementary School join in this effort of raising awareness and collecting funds to benefit the mission of LLS: to find cures for blood cancers and to improve the quality of life for patient and their families.


Every 3 minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer and every 10 minutes someone loses their battle. Thanks to the support of people like you, doctors are getting closer to finding a cure every day!  In the 1960’s the 5-year survival rate for children under the age of 20 with ALL (the most common form of leukemia) went from a mere 3% to nearly 95% today!  Your support is critical to help us find a cure and I hope you will join us in the fight against blood

Thank you so much for supporting LLS and Proctor Terrace Elementary School’s participation in the Pennies program! Together we can reach our goal of $2016! For more information on Pennies for Patients or other LLS Student Series Programs, please visit: www.studentseries.org/gba.

The Proctor Terrace PTA has funded academic, athletic, artistic and after school enrichment, provided funding for playground equipment, field trips, our school garden, new technology and special events like Tigerfest, Ice Cream Social and movie nights. EVERY child at Proctor Terrace has benefited through our PTA.

Please show your support for Proctor Terrace by becoming a PTA member today! Memberships are only $7.50 per person and members can include your family and friends. Membership forms can be found on the door of the PTA closet and the magazine rack by the office.

Plus, if your child’s classroom gets 100% in memberships by September 30th, their teacher will receive an extra $50 for curriculum enrichment! The first classroom to reach 100% gets $100. This year, that honor went to Mrs. Millea’s Kindergarten class!
