Family Picnic

Thanks to all who donated and came to the picnic.  It turned out to be a great success!

 

Odyssey of the Mind

On March 8, a number of student teams from Proctor Terrace School participated in the Odyssey of the Mind regional event and competition, attended by teams from all over the North Coast region. They had enormous fun, and were excited and enthused. Two of our Proctor Terrace teams will be going to the State competition this weekend in Brentwood (Contra Costa County). A Division 2 team from Santa Rosa Middle School with two Proctor Terrace 6th graders won their division, and will also be attending the State competition this weekend. Best of luck to all of these students!

 

State Testing

Students in Gr. 3-6 will begin the new State testing program on April 7. This is a “test of the test.” All assessment will be done online on our school computers. Our teachers have been receiving training on this new system, and students have been taking practice and training tests. Students will not receive scores for this year’s assessments. Next year, they will only receive scores indicating percent correct. The new scoring and reporting system is expected to be in place in 2016. This is all part of turning our schools into 21st Century Learning Centers (over 13% of the 21st Century has already gone by!).

 

Food & Nutrition

Snack and lunch food at school is expected to be healthful and nutritious, in accordance with the District Wellness Policy and Healthy Kids initiatives. A number of students have recently been bringing junk food for snacks and lunch. Students should not be bringing junk food with little or no nutritional value to school, nor should they bring soda to drink. Staff members do monitor what students are eating, and may prohibit them from consuming such unhealthy foods. Parents need to ensure that the quantity and type of food for snack and lunch is appropriate, and are encouraged to check the nutrition labels of foods they provide for their children. We all want our students to develop healthy eating habits and to make healthy choices. They will take these habits they are learning now into adulthood.

 

Occasionally, comments are made about the healthfulness of school lunches. Parents need to be aware that Santa Rosa City School lunches exceed the nutritional recommendations of U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Agriculture for school lunches.

 

Teacher Training

In order to change teaching strategies to implement the Common Core State Standards and 21st Century learning in our classrooms, all of our Proctor Terrace teachers have participating in multiple Professional Learning opportunities throughout this school year. Some of the training has taken place after school on-campus, and much of it has been over multiple days away from the school. Some of our teachers will also be continuing this learning during their Summer break. This extensive training will continue next year and into the future. Our educators are dedicated to life-long learning to provide the best educational experiences for all of our students – your children.

Calling All Parents! Campus Beautification Helpers Needed!

The PTA has plans to install 6 square tables in the courtyard outside the portable classrooms at the back of the school. These tables were purchased with PTA funds and will be used for small group activities.

Before the School District staff installs the tables, we need to spruce up the portable area. Due to malfunctioning irrigation and lack of rain, most of the shrubs have died and/or are dying and the trees need to be pruned. We also would like to install a hard-scape pathway (pavers), but this project can be done at a later date.
We are hoping to use parent volunteers or donations by local landscaping businesses to remove the shrubs and their roots and to prune the trees in the portable courtyard.
Can you help? Is your family in the landscaping business? Do you have connections with a local arborist or landscaping business?
If you would like to get involved with this project, please contact Kathy Doig :
skdoig@sonic.net or 707-545-7691.
Additional campus beautification projects needing parent volunteers:
Re-building the wall ball backstop on the blacktop and re-building one raised bed by the portable area. If you have carpentry skills and/or connections with a wood supplier, please contact Kathy Doig or Mr. Mayer. Thank you!

Walk and Roll

IWTS-Logo_sr2s-natl-partner

Safe Routes to School/Walk and Roll Wednesdays did a walk through the neighborhood on November 4 with Principal Mayer, police, city engineers, an independent engineering company and a representative from the Department of Health. Our school was one of 10 in the county to be included in a grant that allowed the analysis to happen. 4 parents from the school shared their concerns over traffic trouble spots that make it difficult for children to feel safe. No definite plans were made, but concerns were noted. We may see some changes in the new year. Thanks to Jeff Kamariotis, Tiah-Marie Foley, and John Moe for making the time to work on this. – Connie Sultana

General Meeting and Santa Rosa Middle School Presentation

Santa Rosa Middle School presentation at PTA Meeting * November 12th at 6:00pm

Kathy Coker, Principal of Santa Rosa Middle School, will be visiting Proctor Terrace to meet with parents at the PTA meeting on the evening of November 12 at 6:00 p.m. in the Multipurpose Room. She will be bringing a team of teachers, parents, and students to present information about the outstanding programs at Santa Rosa Middle School. This is a wonderful opportunity for parents to talk with Ms. Coker and the Middle School team in a small, intimate setting to find out all about the great programs and student opportunities at Santa Rosa Middle School. Please come and take advantage of this excellent opportunity. Parents of sixth grade students will find this presentation especially interesting since their children will be entering middle school next year. Sixth grade students are welcome and encouraged to attend this presentation with their parents.

This is our biggest meeting of the year. We used to hold it in the Library but we quickly outgrew it. It’s not just 6th Graders and their parents. Everyone ends up coming… K-6th! 6th Graders (and all the kids) sit in front so they can ask all their questions. And, their questions are always GREAT! You’ll meet your Counselor’s per your last name and a lot of great teachers and administrators. And, PT Alumni to boot always sit on the stage and answer questions as well.

SRMS will come back in February during school for the 6th graders to get their paperwork to bring home. They’ll be able to choose their electives, as well.

This is a great time to ask about school hours, school sports teams, clubs, zero period, regular and p.e. lockers, spirit days, electives, p.e. clothes, 7th and 8th grade field trips, dress code, and beyond.

You can leave after the presentation. You’re not required to stay for the entire meeting. Otherwise the General meeting will start at 6:30.  Lots of important topics will be discussed.

This is our chance to have our voices heard and possibly have changes made. We are lucky to be one of 10 schools to have received a grant to help us examine safety concerns. It is a one time commitment. Let me know if you want to join us on this walkabout. conniesultana@sbcglobal.net, 588- 8026.
