Summer Committees

Last year, many of our committees had fun meeting casually over the summer. Some of the important improvements and events we saw this year were cooked up at summer committees!

This year, we are looking for people to sign up and talk about: Walkathon, Special Projects around campus (beautification, repair- landscape and construction-friendly folks would be great), Budget Committee (where does all that money we raised go?) and for a new Drop Off/Pick Up Committee who will look at innovative solutions for increased efficiency, improved interactions and better safety practices at the beginning and end of the school day.

Dinner, Dance, Auction

 

Dear Proctor Terrace Families and Community Members,

Don’t miss the Dinner Dance and Auction flyer in folders Monday! The Dinner, Dance, Auction (DDA) is our school’s big spring fundraiser. This adult-only event is a great way to spend time with other parents, teachers and community stakeholders while raising much needed funds for our school.

This is a super fun, relaxed event and a really important one for the school fundraising efforts for the year. And to all the new or newer parents to Proctor – please don’t think you need to get a table together to come or know lots of other parents. Seats are unallocated (unless you do buy a table for 10) and it’s simply a fun, informal way of supporting the school (without the kids in tow!).

…and if you can’t make it, don’t worry. You can still support the event through the online raffle and win tickets to Disneyland!

Date: April 29, 2017
Time: 5:30pm – 10:30pm
Location: Friedman Event Center; 4676 Mayette Avenue
Theme: Let’s Fiesta!

  • Pork verde and salsa chicken
  • Sauteed bell peppers and onion
  • Spanish Rice
  • Refried beans
  • Salsa, Guacamole, sour cream, cheese, shredded lettuce
  • Corn and flour tortillas, chips
  • Cash bar with beer, wine and margaritas this year with all proceeds going to PT!

Art Auction:

Did you enjoy the art and music festival during open house? Now you can bring it home with you! Bid on FB on the sixth grade’s Chihuly-inspired masterpiece, coordinated by our beloved art docent, Margaret Batchelor.

This lightweight sculpture is perfect to mount over an LED or fluorescent (low heat) light fixture or to dress up with bee lights (like we have here) and display anywhere in your home.

The faux glass pieces of this sculpture were designed by each sixth grade student on glasses, plates and sheets of plastic, and then melted and compiled to make this unique sculpture. All proceeds will benefit the Art Docent Program at Proctor Terrace. Bidding will end at noon on the last day of school, June 2. Good luck!

(Not on FaceBook?  Don’t worry!  Contact Bess Allen now atbesslake@gmail.com with your mobile number and she’ll get you involved in the bidding by text!)


PTA Summer Committees:

As the school year draws to a close, your 2016-17 PTA Board is excited to start planning another great year! Would you like to join other enthusiastic parents in relaxed get-togethers and be part of planning next year’s programs for Proctor? Now forming, summer committees will meet a few times over the next few months to plan priorities and outline events and activities for next year.

These committees include: Budget, PTA Climate, Building Projects, PTA Structure and Classroom Enrichment. Planning committees are open to all and will be chaired and facilitated by a Board member. Committees for our two fun fall events, Walkathon and Tigerfest are also forming.

If you are interested in being part of any of these exciting summer committees, or would just like more information, contact Bess Allen atpresident@proctorterracepta.org.

PLEASE take a moment to stop by the Lost and Found! Items that are left will be donated the week of June 5 to a local charity.

Year Books 2015-2016:

We’re approaching the end of the year, and what a year it’s been! So many memories have been had by all, and what better way to remember them than a yearbook?

Your Proctor Terrace PTA wants to ensure that every student received a yearbook, regardless of financial ability, so yearbooks will be ordered for every student at the school. While payment for these yearbooks is not required, donations to help offset the cost are welcome.

If you’re interested in donating, we have a suggested donation of $15 per student (but any amount helps). If making a donation, please attach your donation to this flyer and return to the office. Thank you for helping to make this such a great year for our students. We couldn’t have done it without you!


2016 – 2017 Enrollment Intentions:

It is that time of year and we are beginning to plan for next year. Parents if you know that your child will not be returning to Proctor next year, please call the school office. 707-522-3240

Experience The Wizard of Oz at Proctor!

Wizard-of-Oz-RSC-and-MUNI1-541x346

Join us on Friday, March 18th, for a performance of The Wizard of Oz starring fine young actors from the 3rd through 6th grade Proctor classes.

The evening performance will begin in the multi-purpose room at 7:00pm. There are no tickets/fees for entry (but donations will be accepted) so get in line early as it will be a packed house and we must keep all of the aisles clear for the performance.

Flowers and baked goods will be sold before the show and during intermission out on the blacktop. The only saved seats will be the front row seats which were raffled off and won by these families: Fisher Family, Allen Family, Brumbaugh Family and Waterman Family.

The only other option for viewing are the two daytime performances at 8:30am (primary) and 12:30pm (upper grades), if room allows. Visitors will need to sit behind students as classes and teachers are seated first during the daytime performances.

Hope to see you there!
