Letter from our new Principal!

Proctor Terrace Elementary

August 11th, 2019

Dear Proctor Terrace Elementary Community,
I’m honored to be named Principal at Proctor Terrace Elementary. I’m
looking forward to meeting every one of you and working together!
The more I learn about your school, the more I am impressed by your
passion, your sense of purpose, and your joy in learning.
As Principal I hope to continue the traditions of the Proctor Terrace
community and lead us in creating a shared vision for our future.
Students’ wellbeing and achievement will be at the forefront of the
work we do every day. My intention is to connect with, inspire, and
celebrate our teachers, school staff, and parents. Strong relationships
and collaboration within our community will ensure our students’
continued success. Please come and talk with me about your ideas to
improve our work here at Proctor Terrace, and share your dreams for
our children.
Prior to coming to Proctor Terrace, I spent 21 years in elementary
education, first as a Spanish Bilingual Teacher, then as an Assistant
Principal, a Coordinator for English Learner Programs, and as a
Principal. I have two incredible sons, ages five and two, and a
gracious, supportive wife who is also an educator.
I wish you the best as we start another exciting year!
In partnership,
Brett Wilson

Estimada comunidad de Proctor Terrace,
Me siento honrado de ser nombrado Director de Proctor Terrace

aprendo sobre su escuela, más me impresiona su pasión, su sentido de
propósito y su alegría por aprender.
Como director, espero continuar las tradiciones de la comunidad de

para nuestro futuro. El bienestar y el rendimiento de los estudiantes
estarán a la vanguardia del trabajo que hacemos todos los días. Mi

Many of you may have questions regarding our new bathrooms that will be going in by Room 29.

Here is the latest update:

In the Spring, boring was completed at the location site of the new bathrooms. The  report was sent to the California Seismological Agency for review.  As a result of new regulations, the report was sent back to the district in the last few weeks with some questions that need to be addressed. The Engineers are currently working on answering these questions and resubmitting to the agency.  We are hoping to be able to begin construction in October. Work will be done after school and on weekends to reduce impact on student learning during the school day. Completion of the project is expected in December.

Thank you,

Kathy Olmsted


Every Student   Every Possibility    No Matter What

Welcome Back

Upcoming Dates:

10/26: We are having a Proctor community get together tomorrow, Thursday the 26th from 4:30 to 6:00, on the field. This will be a time for our students and families to reconnect before school starts on Friday. Please feel free to bring a picnic dinner, blankets, chairs and umbrellas.

10/27: School Reopens! Consider wearing your tiger tog tshirts, your blue shirt from Walkathon. If you need a tiger tog please contact, or stop by the office before school starts – we are happy to replace togs that were lost.

10/27: Friday, October 27th, please join Mrs. Olmsted in the Multi for coffee after drop off.

10/31: Due to the postponement of TigerFest, we will be allowing students to wear their Halloween costumes on Tuesday, October 31st. Costumes must be school dress code appropriate, no weapons or masks allowed. We are trying to line up donations of costumes for those students who may have lost theirs in the fire. There will be a parade around the block at 10:30. The Library will be staffed for students who do not want to participate in the parade. Next year we will go back to no costumes on Halloween and continue our Tigerfest tradition.
