The Proctor School Board minutes for late August were finally released for publication. Here are some of the highlights. Superintendent, Debra Taylor presented an Activities Coordinator contract for Jake Eaton in the amount of $10,000.00. On a motion from Don and seconded by Art the Board voted unanimously to award the contract to Jake Eaton. Other contracts that were approved by the board included 1). Patty Ryan for a .4 para-educator position at the high school 2). Shari Davis for the custodian position on the 1:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. shift 3). Kelly Anne Cameron for the receptionist position at the high school  4). Megan Jimenez for a para-educator position at the elementary school 5). Matthew Bersaw for a para-educator position at the elementary school 6). Shannon Maass for a part-time para-educator position for approximately six hours a week at the elementary school 7). Audrey Tilden for the library para-educator position at the elementary school and the high school.

After an executive session Fregosi made a motion, seconded by Art to appoint Helen Arkinson to replace Bruce Baccei who resigned from the Board. Later in the meeting PHS Principal June Sargent reviewed some minor changes to the Philosophy of Extracurricular Activities Handbook, most of which involved clarification. Board member Mary Fregosi felt that the academic restrictions for the fall sports season should be dropped. Her feeling was that students should be given a fresh start since there is no way that they can improve on last year's grades. The Board then discussed the positive and negative aspects of such a change. It was agreed to remove the academic eligibility restrictions for the start of the fall season.

Wet fields this weekend didn't stop the Proctor soccer teams from rolling over their competition.

The 3rd/4th grade boys played Barstow in a close game but came up short. The team was missing some players and had to bring up Ian French and Matt Anderson who both played well in their debut. Joe Valerio and Camden Richardson did a great job defensively clearing the ball while Salomon Parker and Ian French took turns in the goal. Connor Mckearin scored 3 goals for Proctor.

The two Proctor 3rd/4th grade girls teams faced each other this weekend. It was a tough fought game but teams were equally dominate. Madison Flanders scored for Proctor White while her teammates Amelia Tooley and Allison Almond stood their ground on defense. Maggie Mckearin and Hannah Anderson both scored for Proctor Maroon. Madison Lee was cited for her great defense and Rachel Stuhlmueller had a great game as goaltender for the maroon team.

The 5th/6th grade girls had a phenomenal game against the Mill River United team. They also were handicapped by the wet fields but that didn't stop them from scoring 5 goals. Proctor took the early lead and goalkeeper Lizzie Baccei played awesome in the goal holding off Mill River for the win. Isabele Valerio scored 3 goals and Emerson Pomeroy and Erica May each scored 1. Each team was strong on both sides making the game a good competitive matchup.

The 5th/6th grade boys also bested Mill River 2. Scoring for Proctor were Nick Blongy, Jack Morgan, Sincere Bride and Tyler Carrington. Bride also shared goaltending duties with Devon Buzzard who both did a great job defending the goal. The boys battled the wet fields and both teams had a sense of humor about the conditions as they laughed at points during the mud slips and slides in front of the goals.

During PES soccer play the 5th/6th grade girls defeated Barstow by a wide margin earlier this week. Scoring honors go out to Isabel Valerio, Meredith Parker, Emerson Pomeroy, and Allison Almond. Key defense and numerous assists were provided by Erica May who was a reoccurring nightmare to the Barstow offensive line. Lizzy Baccei was the goaltender Proctor.  The 5th/6th grade boys played to an exciting 3-3 tie! Proctor goals came from Liam Duggan, Jack Morgan, and Nick Blongy. Callum Owen and Devon Bussard lead the defense for Proctor. Goal tending duties were shared by Isaac Owen and Sincere Bride. The offense for Barstow was led by Eli Henni.  Connor Chase played superb defense, and Luke Carmel did an outstanding job in the goal. This one was a nail biter until the end, and both teams played their hearts out!
