We had a wonderful assembly last week.  We earned just over $29,000. All the kids were really excited for their Zumba led by Mrs. Olmsted.  Almost 40 kids got to take home a prize for most laps walked per grade level and a raffle for any child who collected $150 or more.  All of the following are businesses that sponsored the event or a prize for a child:

Ratto Group – Provided a t-shirt for all students to wear for the walkathon and to keep afterwards.
Palooza Food Truck – Provided their awesome gourmet food for our event.
Oliver’s, Pacific Market, Culligan Water, Safeway, Trader’s Joe, Matheson, Wells Fargo Center Farmer’s Market, and Baskin Robbins- Supplies for the Event.

“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  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.

Tiger Tog Order


Fall weather is finally here, time to stock up on your Tiger Togs. Accessorize your spirit wear with our new sling bag! Our newest Tiger Gear is just $12. It’s really high quality and very roomy. Now available for online ordering here. Order forms will be going out in folders soon, so you can order enough for the whole family!  Also make excellent Christmas gifts.

Classroom Move

We are getting closer and closer to move day. For those of you who may not know, we are making some room changes to better serve all of our students. Ms. Johnson’s room is moving into to main building where our teacher resource room has been located. Mr. Swedenborg will be moving in next to his fellow teachers in Room 32. 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!

If you are available and would like to help, we would love to have you! A few weeks ago we had a clean up day and It was a blast! I am looking forward to even more fun on moving day! Treats will be involved…

Book Fairs

We have two book fairs coming up.  First there is the Barnes and Noble book fair on Black Friday weekend.  We get 5 – 15% of all Proctor Terrace sales from that weekend.  Plus we get a gift wrapping station provided and we keep all the tips donated from anyone who wants to participate.  Volunteers will be needed.  Click here to sign up now.


Scholastic Book Fair will be held the second week of December only after school.  It will start Wednesday December 9th and end Saturday December 13th.  We will need volunteers for the shifts but we have not yet decided on the times yet.  On that Saturday there is a craft fair that is in the works.  We are still working out the details. There may be a table charge but we have not decided yet.  If you craft and would like to have a table for the event please send a contact form here.
