New at PTA meetings:

Forums! where we share, get educated and discuss important topics to our school community.   Our first forum is for new parents and returning parents alike:  Have you dealt with lice in your home?  Are you tired of repeat events? Do you want to learn more about lice prevention and treatment?  Come and learn more about how to prevent lice, how lice mature, how lice transmits and how to treat it effectively from Kathy Wingate of Hair Bears Lice Treatment Salon at our next PTA meeting, on Thursday, October 13th at 6:30pm in the Library.   We’ll treat this subject seriously, but with a little humor.

Upcoming Dates:

Póliza de celulares en Proctor Terrace

Estudiantes pueden traer celulares a la escuela, sin embargo, tienen que ser apagados y aguardados en sus mochilas. Si un personal de la escuela ve a un estudiante con un teléfono en su posesión durante el día escolar, será a discreción del maestro para tomar posesión el teléfono.

Estudiantes deben de estar fuera de la propiedad de la escuela para hacer uso de su celular después de la escuela, o pueden permanecer en su salón por 5 minutos para hacer su llamada. Después que hayan hecho su llamada, el teléfono debe regresar a su mochila hasta que esté fuera de la propiedad escolar.

La escuela y el distrito no aceptan responsabilidad alguna por la pérdida o daño de cualquier dispositivo traído a la propiedad escolar.

Les agradezco la colaboración
This is a gentle reminder that all visitors who come on campus must sign in at the office and get a visitor sticker, even if you come to campus to help in classrooms or the Library. It is for safety reasons in the event of an emergency.

Classroom Wishlists:

Proctor Terrace teachers have created wishlists to make it easier for parents to directly support their children’s classrooms and school. Each teacher can choose items and supplies that would make a difference in their classrooms, parents can easily purchase the exact items the teachers want, and Amazon ships and keeps track of it all to avoid duplicate purchases. If you do not see your teacher on the list, please ask them to create one. 

Please click here for more details and to view your classroom's wishlist
