“Thank you Proctor Terrace community for making my first Tigerfest so great! It was a beautiful day and such a delight to see our students in there costumes, enjoying some old fashion fun! I really appreciate all the hard work and dedication that it takes to continue these traditions at our school.” – Kathy Olmsted

Thank you to all the volunteers that helped with the event.  Special thanks to Andrea Blanco, Sheila Parra, Jennifer Nash, Chris and Raissa Hamilton, Connie Sultana, Sarah Navarro, and Harold Nelson.  They were the backbone of the whole operation.  Also would like to thank Trader Joe’s for their donation for the sno cone supplies.  We are still trying to perfect the prize area which is really hard without the volunteers needed.  If you have any suggestions or would like to be involve next year please email me at amandastanbro@gmail.com.  Also email me if you weren’t able to cash in your tokens for any reason.  We have a lot of prizes that you can choose from still and I’m willing to get together to make sure your child is able to use their tokens.

Special thanks to Victoria Bigelow for growing such amazing pumpkins that were used for the ring toss game and also the huge pumpkin carved for the raffle.  The carved pumpkin was done by Andrew Stanbro.

Our students who receive Special Education services and Speech Therapy will be moving to Room 37. We are all very excited! I was planning on this being a year long project but everyone was so enthusiastic that we are making the moves on the weekend of November 8th!

Hope everyone had a wonderful first week back to school.  Have you gotten a chance to meet Mrs. Olmsted our new principal? A few other things have changed this year also.  Proctor Terrace is now offering breakfast for $1.50 from 7:45 to 8:00.  Lunch prices have gone up from $2.50 to $2.75.  Lunch and breakfast menu can be found here.  You can pay by sending lunch money or check to school or by loading money directly on your child’s account by using myschoolbucks.com. All you need is your child’s student ID which can be requested from their teacher or from the office.

PTA Membership

Become a member of the PTA for several great reasons. National PTA is able to partner with businesses and negotiate special discounts, fundraising opportunities and other valuable benefits exclusively for PTA members.

· AARP · Hertz · MetLife · Schwan’s Cares · Sharp · Staples · Sylvan!

One of my favorite reasons is if your classroom gets 100% the PTA will give extra enrichment money to your child’s classroom.  So if your teacher has 19 students she needs 19 members to get 100%.  If your spouse and you sign up for PTA membership that will count as two memberships toward the 100%. If you have multiple students in multiple classrooms then you must only choose one.  Maybe one of the classrooms already has 100% so you can choose the other.

Another awesome reason for signing up is PTA meetings.  Almost once a month there is a General Membership meeting.  You get to vote on important things like how to spend donations or what events or activities we will have.  Every meeting they lay out in detail how all the donated money has or will be spent.  It’s really nice to see how the funds are spent every year.

The best part is it’s only $7.50 to join  You can sign up right now just by clicking here.

Walk and Roll

walk and rollDid you know that Proctor Terrace is the #1 school in the whole Santa Rosa City Schools district (yes, district!) for Walk and Roll?! Our awesome Proctor kids and families have a 60-80% participation rate for Walk and Roll Wednesdays! Can we raise it even higher this year!?

The Golden Sneakers are back, blinged up and ready to be awarded to the classrooms with the most Walkers and Rollers each Wednesday. The Golden Sneaker awards will begin on Sept. 3, but why not get into the routine THIS WEEK!
Every Wednesday is Walk and Roll day! Walk or ride your bike every Wednesday. If you live  to far away or are running late to school just park at least 4 blocks away and walk to school. Your child’s class can earn prizes and trophies every week if they are the top walker and rollers.  They also have bike workshop days and special prize days throughout the year.
