PTA Weekly Update – September 12th

We had a great turnout at our first PTA meeting on Tuesday night! A lot of ground was covered but we wanted to share a few highlights.

Santa Rosa City Schools will be holding 8 meetings to form a strategic plan to help define our children’s future and the board wants to hear from you. Go to and click on Strategic Planning to learn more about how education is changing and see a calendar of upcoming meetings. Mr. Mayer strongly encourages parents to get involved, now is your chance to be heard. Some of the locations may be changing to make them more convenient to all citizens of Santa Rosa.

Odyssey of the Mind will hold their first meeting on September 17th at 6:30 in Ms. Schmidt’s room, they are looking for coaches to assist with this amazing program so go check it out.

Get ready for some fresh air! The first Walk & Roll to School is on Wednesday September 18th, see you on the sidewalk.

The Walkaton is upon us, be sure Friday the 27th is circled on your calendar. Go to and click on Walkathon for more information including how to volunteer, it’s a big event and we’d love to have your help.

Don’t forget to sign up as a PTA member before September 30th, your child’s class could earn an extra $50 curriculum enrichment!

The PTA will be giving each student a Tiger Tog with our brand new logo but still need a Tiger Tog coordinator to help place quarterly orders, go Tigers!

There is a tremendous need for yard duty from 11:55-12:30, contact the district if interested in this paid position.

Thanks to your dedicated fundraising and wonderful donations the PTA has money to spend and we need your ideas, please contact Kristina Kiessig to get involved with our Spending Committee.

The results from our survey last spring told us you’d like to attend a PTA meeting in the morning, so guess what?… our next General Membership Meeting will be held at 8:30 AM in the multipurpose room on Tuesday October 8th, bring your coffee and get involved!

September 18th: Walk and Roll is something we do every week at Proctor Terrace. To keep fit, help the environment, cut down on traffic and have fun
we just walk or roll (bikes, scooters, skates etc) to school. Families that need to drive can park 4 blocks away and still be part of the team. The classes with the most walk and rollers win an award each week called The Golden Sneaker. Occasionally we have special Walk and Roll days on which each child who participates wins a special prize. Our first official Walk and Roll Day is Wednesday September 18th! Mark your calendar for the special International Walk and Roll Day, October 9th! More infomation at
