Dear Proctor Parent,

Despite a chilly Project Period week, Proctor’s maple syrup production is booming! The top banner photograph shows the Cape Cod cycling project on a snowy beach.




Gregor Makechnie is carrying the administrative cell phone: 603-491-9282. This is an “open weekend;” many students will be off campus Saturday night. They’ll miss two dances—one featuring a very local rock ‘n roll band! <READ MORE>
Off campus projects are returning to campus Friday, and we look forward to their stories, enthusiasm and photographs. In the meantime, Chuck Will has written a “Corner” from his visits to many local projects. Chuck observes, “People are busy and happy, and I caught one of my all-time favorite photographs of Kayla as a teaching intern with a boy with a first-grade smile!”

The Intuitive Arts project is displaying its work this evening (Friday) from 4:00 to 7:00 in the Community Coffeeshop, across the street from Ives House. Stop by and enjoy abstract art, music and food with a proud group of artists! Meanwhile, the sugarhouse is busy every afternoon and evening, as the season’s maple boil continues. Check out the activity and enjoy a taste of liquid gold! CLICK HERE for a Project Period Video.

Join friends of Proctor for a fun night at The Boston Foundation, 75 Arlington Street, Boston, April 7 from 6:00-8:00 PM. This reception is hosted by Paul and Karen Grogan, the Ansara Family and Katie Kidder ’91. Mike Henriques will describe exciting initiatives for the future of the school.

On April 27, from 6:00 to 8:00 PM, join Katrina Roski ’94, Mike Henriques and friends of Proctor for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at Pacific Palms Resort, One Industry Hills Parkway, City of Industry, California. Enjoy presentations on future athletic plans….both for Proctor, and for Los Angeles—an NFL stadium supported by Katrina’s father, Ed Roski! RSVP to Valerie at 603-735-6215 or events@proctornet.com no later than April 20.
Proctor skiing has achieved something that is almost unimaginable, by qualifying two skiers for the U.S. Nationals at Winter Park, Colorado April 1-5. Senior Kerry Daigle (Centerville, MA) and junior Caite Zeliff (North Conway, NH) earned the opportunity to compete against  members of the United States Ski Team in what coach David Salathe calls “a HUGE deal!” Unfortunately, an injury prevents Kerry from competing next week. We congratulate both girls for earning this!

Tim Norris, who began teaching at Proctor in 1966, was honored at Mt. Sunapee last Saturday as recipient of the John W. McCrillis Memorial Ski Award for his extraordinary career as coach of Proctor ski jumping. Tim has now retired from coaching. <READ MORE>
