 WALK A THON 
Thank you to all who participated in our Walk a Thon!  We are at 70% of our $30,000 goal and are pushing to make it to 100%!  Walk a Thon is our school's major fundraiser and we want this year's school activities to be 100% RAD!

WHAT CAN YOU DO? 
  • There is still time!  Get a few more pledges!  Paper pledge sheets should be returned by Weds, October 16th.  We are giving you a few more days to get out there: call your long lost cousins, hit up the pediatrician.  You can collect pledge $$ throughout the year.
  • There is still time to register your child on www.getmovinfundhub.com. Classes with 100% registration get a CLASSROOM PARTY! 
  • Awards Assembly October 25th 


Tigerfest is our annual Halloween Festival where kids can show off their costumes, play games, win prizes and candy, and we finish it off with a neighborhood parade!  

This event is open to the public and has been a Proctor Terrace Tradition for over 65 years.  Invite family and friends to join us!!


Admission is free!  Buy Game Tickets online or at the event (we recommend ~60 game tickets per child).  We will have tamales, pizza and fresh apple cider for sale.

How you can help
  • Volunteer: This fun, family friendly event cannot be possible without your help! Parents, Aunts, Uncles, Grandparents are ALL welcome to volunteer!!  Sign up here
  • Donate:  We need Candy and Prize donations!  Ideas:  Individual granola bars, fruit gummies, Rice Krispie treats, mini playdough etc. The donation bucket is in the front hallway, near the office.
