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:

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!
