PROCTOR HIGH SCHOOL UPDATE

January 14th, 2022

END OF SEMESTER 1 - JANUARY 21st

ESSENTIA HEALTH CAREER FAIR A HUGE SUCCESS

On Wednesday, PHS Students were given an opportunity to explore the different careers within Healthcare as Essentia Health provided engaging activities related to their different departments in our field house. All day long students cycled through and received an up close and personal look at tools and equipment used and were able to ask questions about the careers and how to pursue these careers.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS - WINTER HOMECOMING AND SNOBALL

Proctor High School will be celebrating our Winter Homecoming from January 31st to February 5th. In addition to many home events, we will be honoring our seniors who are in Winter activities with our AAA Recognition Assembly at 6pm on Tuesday, February 1st in the PHS Auditorium. Those seniors who will be recognized in this assembly will be receiving a letter soon with specifics and will be asked to provide some information to be shared during the assembly. Our homecoming week will be capped off by our SnoBall Dance for 9-12 grade students at the Holiday Inn Ballroom. As of now we are moving full steam ahead with SnoBall and are hoping that our students continue to mask properly and be mindful of their germs to avoid a large spike in cases that may jeopardize our ability to have this event. If a student who is planning to attend the dance wants to invite a student who does not attend PHS, they will need to pick up a form in the office and submit it by February 3rd for approval. Homecoming king/queen voting will take place from January 26th-February 3rd and the crowning of the Winter king and queen will take place at the PHS Pep assembly on Friday, February 4th.

PHS ROCKIN' RAILS POLAR PLUNGE TEAM NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT

Proctor Rockin' Rails 2022 POLAR PLUNGE team link


Please help get the word out! We ARE plunging this year for the Special Olympics team. Please use the link above to either donate, jumping by "chickening out" style, or to actually take the plunge with us on Saturday, Feb. 19, 2022.

COME AND JOIN THE FUN! You only need to raise $75 in order to jump that day! Once our team is formed, the seniors will be deciding what "theme" we will use this year. We will get a nice warm bus that day to/from the HS so you don't have to find a parking spot! There is VERY limited parking at the event.

If you would like to just donate, please use the link above or get the money to Danielle Wines in room S207.

PLEASE SHARE AWAY!! Social media, email, print.... however. Just remember that all donations need to be made through our website in order to count.

PLEASE DOWNLOAD OUR NEW SCHOOL APP!

You can download the new App on Google Play or the App Store or by searching Proctor Public School for our new App (the new App will be white, not green like the “OLD” App.) You can also delete your old Proctor Schools App; we will no longer be pushing information to it. We only have 360 Downloads from the Apple Store and we would like that number much higher. We push lots of information to our App!

BACKPACK PROGRAM AVAILABLE AT PHS

We would like to invite your child to participate in a new program called the BackPack Program. This program is a partnership between the ----- Public Schools, Second Harvest Northern Lakes Food Bank, local volunteers and generous funders from throughout the community.

The BackPack Program provides a small bag of nutritious, non-perishable food for your child to eat during the weekend when school isn’t in session throughout the school year. Each bag contains a variety of items including main entrees, breakfast items, fruit, vegetables, snacks and often juice or shelf-stable milk.

Once enrolled in the BackPack Program, your child will receive a small bag of food at the end of the day, before school dismisses, at the end of the school week. Teachers and school staff will help remind students when and where to pick up their items. The food will be packed in a plastic bag which will be easy to put in a backpack or book bag. The food is intended to be used during the weekend.

What’s more, the BackPack Program food will be provided at no cost to your child.

If this program would be helpful as you work to provide for your family, please contact [Kelly Smith, Guidance Secretary 218-520-3201

Ksmith@proctor.k12.mn.us]. Every effort will be made to keep this confidential. In addition, if your circumstances should change after you have enrolled, you may opt out of the program at any time during the school year by letting your school contact know.

Mental Health Support Available

HDC (Human Development Center) is offering an opportunity for teachers and parents to access a therapist at the school to discuss current issues and stressors in their lives. We are opening this opportunity to both middle and high school teachers and families. At this time, we have Thursday afternoons blocked off as a time for either party to attend after school. The time would run from 2:30-3:30. If teachers, families or staff are interested in this opportunity, they can email Ms. Arneson to schedule a time to drop on.
