Walk and Roll

walk and roll

Walk and Roll Wednesdays are off to a fantastic start! Our first W&R Wednesday was Sept. 3, and it was awesome! Enthusiastic 6th grade volunteers from Mrs. Hiatt’s and Mrs. Lyon’s classes sported the stylin’ orange shirts, and along with PT the Tiger (!!), greeted Walkers and Rollers with fun promotional materials provided to us by Safe Routes to School. And yes, Mrs. Olmsted DID walk to school. Our principal rocks! walkandroll

Last week’s Golden Sneaker Award winners were Mrs. Millea’s Kindergarten (100% participation!! whoo hoo!), Mrs. Gude-Dunbar’s class, and Mr. Swedenborg’s class. But the whole school did great, as we had 69% participation school-wide!

Walk and Roll Wednesday will happen EVERY Wednesday, and each week the Golden Sneakers are up for grabs for the classrooms with the highest percentage of participation. Go Tigers!

 

August 22nd, 2014

Welcome Back!

Click here for School Supply Lists

Hope everyone had a wonderful first week back to school.  Have you gotten a chance to meet Mrs. Olmsted our new principal? A few other things have changed this year also.  Proctor Terrace is now offering breakfast for $1.50 from 7:45 to 8:00.  Lunch prices have gone up from $2.50 to $2.75.  Lunch and breakfast menu can be found here.  You can pay by sending lunch money or check to school or by loading money directly on your child’s account by using myschoolbucks.com. All you need is your child’s student ID which can be requested from their teacher or from the office.

PTA Membership

Become a member of the PTA for several great reasons. National PTA is able to partner with businesses and negotiate special discounts, fundraising opportunities and other valuable benefits exclusively for PTA members.
Current Offers
· AARP · Hertz · MetLife · Schwan’s Cares · Sharp · Staples · Sylvan!

One of my favorite reasons is if your classroom gets 100% the PTA will give extra enrichment money to your child’s classroom.  So if your teacher has 19 students she needs 19 members to get 100%.  If your spouse and you sign up for PTA membership that will count as two memberships toward the 100%. If you have multiple students in multiple classrooms then you must only choose one.  Maybe one of the classrooms already has 100% so you can choose the other.

Another awesome reason for signing up is PTA meetings.  Almost once a month there is a General Membership meeting.  You get to vote on important things like how to spend donations or what events or activities we will have.  Every meeting they lay out in detail how all the donated money has or will be spent.  It’s really nice to see how the funds are spent every year.

The best part is it’s only $7.50 to join  You can sign up right now just by clicking here.

Calendar

Click here to see a list of events planned for this year so far.  Contact the PTA to find out how you can volunteer for any of these events.  Walkathon is our biggest fundraiser of the year.  Last year we raised $35,000! All the donations go to helping with classroom supplies, equipment, sports, activities, dances, movie nights, and special guests at assemblies.  Our next big event is the Tigerfest.  It’s the school Halloween/Fall Carnival.  There are tons of games, activities, DJ, food, candy and prizes.  More information for these events will be available later on our website, proctorterracepta.org and our blog.

Walk and Roll

walk and rollDid you know that Proctor Terrace is the #1 school in the whole Santa Rosa City Schools district (yes, district!) for Walk and Roll?! Our awesome Proctor kids and families have a 60-80% participation rate for Walk and Roll Wednesdays! Can we raise it even higher this year!?

The Golden Sneakers are back, blinged up and ready to be awarded to the classrooms with the most Walkers and Rollers each Wednesday. The Golden Sneaker awards will begin on Sept. 3, but why not get into the routine THIS WEEK!
Every Wednesday is Walk and Roll day! Walk or ride your bike every Wednesday. If you live  to far away or are running late to school just park at least 4 blocks away and walk to school. Your child’s class can earn prizes and trophies every week if they are the top walker and rollers.  They also have bike workshop days and special prize days throughout the year.

Marquee Update

Thank you to all who provided their input into the new marquee.  The majority of voters wanted both an LED sign on the blacktop and a traditional sign in front of the school, so that is what we will order and have installed.  Hopefully, it will be in place when school starts in August.  Stay tuned.

Save the Date – Welcome Back Picnic!

We know summer hasn’t even started, but save Monday, August 18 from 4:00 – 6:30 for the Welcome Back Picnic.  Class assignments will be announced and there will be food and family entertainment.

Artists Needed (or really just people interested in art)

Next school year the PTA is sponsoring an art docent program in which specialized art instruction will be provided by trained volunteers.  This is such a fun and exciting program that we are excited to bring to the school.  The program coordinators are hoping for two volunteers from each grade.  Parents, grandparents, friends, neighbors, basically anyone interested is welcome to volunteer.  Training will be done over the summer.  Please contact Bess Allen for more details at besslake@gmail.com.

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.
