Art Auction:

Did you enjoy the art and music festival during open house? Now you can bring it home with you! Bid on FB on the sixth grade’s Chihuly-inspired masterpiece, coordinated by our beloved art docent, Margaret Batchelor.

This lightweight sculpture is perfect to mount over an LED or fluorescent (low heat) light fixture or to dress up with bee lights (like we have here) and display anywhere in your home.

The faux glass pieces of this sculpture were designed by each sixth grade student on glasses, plates and sheets of plastic, and then melted and compiled to make this unique sculpture. All proceeds will benefit the Art Docent Program at Proctor Terrace. Bidding will end at noon on the last day of school, June 2. Good luck!

(Not on FaceBook?  Don’t worry!  Contact Bess Allen now atbesslake@gmail.com with your mobile number and she’ll get you involved in the bidding by text!)

The only other option for viewing are the two daytime performances at 8:30am (primary) and 12:30pm (upper grades), if room allows. Visitors will need to sit behind students as classes and teachers are seated first during the daytime performances.

SRCS Superintendent Search 2016 Survey:

As part of the Santa Rosa City Schools superintendent search process – gathering stakeholder input – our Board of Education has approved an online survey. The survey has been developed in both English and Spanish and is set to run through March 21st.

All input is welcome, so please take a few minutes to complete this survey!

English Survey:

Spanish Survey:

Local Control and Accountability Plan for the 2016/2017 School Year Survey:

California state law sets out the system for funding public schools. State leaders largely decide how much money is available to schools each year as part of the state budget process.

In 2013, California adopted a new formula for deciding how much money each school district gets, called the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF).

School districts will decide how to use the funds, but under the new system they must get input from their local communities. They also have to tie their budgets to improvement goals by creating a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP).

The information from these surveys help the district write the LCAP for the following school year. Please see surveys below. Thanks for your participation! 

More info on LCFF & LCAP:
http://www.srcs.k12.ca.us/District/CI/LCFF/Pages/default.aspx

 

The live surveys are here:

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.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

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
cancers!!!

Click Here to Donate Now!

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.

2/10 – Santa Rosa Middle School 6th Grade Orientation:

6th Grade Orientation at Santa Rosa Middle School Wednesday, February 10th @ 6:30pm in the Santa Rosa Middle School gym.

Join us for a very important and fun night at SRMS. This is a family event. We will have a short presentation in the gym and dance done by Leadership. After, the campus is open to tour for everyone. Leadership will have music in the quad and will be selling frozen yogurt with toppings. We will also have all our SRMS Cougar gear for sale ($10-$30) for hats, tshirts, sweatshirts and more. This table is always full and the kids love to wear their new Cougar gear to school the following day!

It’s happening… your 6th graders will be Middle School Students in a handful of months. It’s always fun to go to all the elective course rooms, too.

We can’t wait to see you!

A series of six discussion-based classes facilitated by Karen Littell, MSW.

Parenting gifted children can be wonderfully rewarding. It can also be challenging, frustrating and exhausting! This series of guided discussion groups will offer information about nurturing our sensitive, intense, creative, and insatiably curious children.

Topics will include understanding gifted intensities, meeting social/emotional needs, peer relationships, isolation, perfectionism, procrastination, motivation, underachievement, self-regulation, executive function skills, depression, twice exceptional children (gifted plus other issues), stress, idealism, frustration tolerance, advocacy, imposter syndrome, and nurturing ourselves too!

Please join us for good company, support, and lively discussion.
