ssLisa Van Scoy

Hello, I am Lisa Van Scoy I am the Preschool Program Director, I started here three years ago as the Toddler Teacher and was asked to lead the program a short time later. Leading our amazing preschool teaching team has been a huge privilege and we have accomplished a lot! In our time together, we’ve expanded the program to provide for even more students, received our first ever quality rating, and secured a spot as a Best of Tracy, preschool.

If you ever visit our Grant Line campus you will most likely see me bouncing between our two preschool classrooms or singing and dancing with a group of our youngest learners!

 

 

sdsdHi! My name is Sheree Parker and I am one of the TK teachers. The TK team has made the transition to lead teacher an easy one as they are a great, supportive team. I have been working at TLC for 5 years, mostly in kindergarten. I have learned so much since I have been working here and I know I have gained so much knowledge and tools to help me be successful. There are so many opportunities at TLC to help like I am the Cross Country Coach at Millennium for the past 3 years. I am able to use my knowledge and love for track and field to help the student-athletes to reach their full potential. Outside of TLC, I am the director of a youth track club called God Speed.  I am a mother of 3 sons, of which 2 are in high school and one is grown with 2 kids of his own.  It has been a long journey, but finally, I have completed all my requirements to obtain my teaching credential and Masters Degree in Education.

P2 is going to have many fun and exciting events with the change of the season. Homecoming is an event that the whole school looks forward to each year. The theme this year is the 1960’s and Primary is doing “The Man on the Moon” — more specifically Kindergarten will be doing “stars.” Parade day is Wednesday, October 3rd and will take place in downtown Tracy at 3:00. Additionally, we will have a 1:00 dismissal this day. Another fun event will be our TLC Family Movie Night on October 12th. The movie, Coco, will begin at 7:00 AND there will be a 50/50 raffle, raffle baskets, and concessions for purchase. Our classroom is putting together a raffle basket and are asking for donations. The theme of our P2 basket is READING CORNER. See fliers for more information.

Phase One

This week Phase One continued writing paragraphs in Writer’s Workshop and learning about Native Americans in Social Studies.

AR GOALS: By now you might have heard your student mention something about an AR goal. Students that are in AR were given a goal several weeks ago based on their reading level. They then have to read books in their reading level and take quizzes on them to receive points towards their goal. Quizzes can only be taken at school and after a student has read their book 3 times (once for a chapter book).  We are now approaching the end of our first AR goal period, in fact there is ONE week left to meet AR goals. Each class will have their own AR party for those students that reach their AR goal the following week.

 

Phase 2 students are hard at work on their geography unit in Social Studies.  P8 competed their state reports, P7 and P6 finished their “Me on the Map” projects.  While all three classes follow the same curriculum, the pace of our lesson and projects varies from class to class.  P7 is currently working on state reports and P6 is creating a US map puzzle.  Next week we will all focus on our great state of California!  This is a great time to discuss the different places you have been in our state.  We will learn about the symbols, regions, landmarks and different landforms of our great Golden State!

A Sneak Peek into Classrooms

Technology- Ms. Ferguson: In Honors the students are being introduced to Google Docs and creating a to go menu for a restaurant that they created!

In Varsity the students are applying their Google Slides skills to create a presentation about their favorite activity!

 

Language Arts- Ms. Christensen: This week in Language Arts Honors continued work on diagramming a sentence for subject and predicate and Scholastic began learning to diagram a sentence for subject and predicate.  Varsity is working on different types of verbs (auxiliary, linking, and helping).  All groups worked on creating a plot map for a chapter we read this week in L.A.

 

In Humanities we reviewed all areas of our music unit and took the final.

 

Physical Education: With the new school year underway, students are having a blast in PE playing Rookie Rugby, Lacrosse and Soccer! Please be on the lookout in “Aeries” for “Grade Updates” each week as Coach Penirian, Coach Easterday and Coach Williams’ classes just took their first test this past Friday, September 14th.

Also, as a friendly reminder, please remind students that they should be applying

 

“Deodorants/Antiperspirants/Baby Powder or Sanitary Wipes” in the morning before they are coming to school and showering daily; as their bodies have already begun puberty even though there may be no signs of it showing physically!

 

Thank You!!!

-DCS PE Staff

 

Geography- Ms. T & Mrs. Zuniga: Students had many questions about the White House, so all classes decided to further our curiosity by watching a tour of the White House, led by First Lady, Mrs. Kennedy from the 1960’s.  We then explored what the White House looked like in modern times and compared the decades of transformation.  This led us into a discussion about the 50 states and where they are located. We both are so excited with where our classes have taken us and we decided that exploring all of the 50 states/capitals together will vastly expand our knowledge.

 

Social Studies- Ms. Sabedra: This week in 5/6 social studies students have been working on creating notebook covers about what we’ve learned so far this year. I’m seeing so many students show amazing creativity and impressive art skills. They’re looking great and I can’t wait to see the finished products!

CJSF:

WOW!!!! What a grand success DCS had with our Donation Drive for the Tracy Animal shelter! This was also CJSF’s biggest donation drive to date! We are so grateful and proud of the kids and their families who worked together to make this happen. The Tracy Animal Shelter is going to be blown away by our delivery. With my office now back to normal, but my van stuffed and ready to go, I can’t wait to see what we accomplish and give back to our community next!

~ Mrs. Prescott, DCS Counselor and CJSF Adviser

 

(Below are some pictures of our CJSF students, as well as all of the donated items!)

 

 

 

Social Studies:

This week, students took a trip back to the 1700’s and learned all about our early American history! We started off the week by discussing how the Great Awakening gave the colonists the desire to question the King’s authority and the courage needed to stand up to the Monarchy to fight for their rights. Students compared and contrasted the lifestyle of the colonists with those living in England and how those differences led to the colonists need for independence. Monday through Wednesday our Scholastic and Honors students reviewed their vocabulary for the 60’s the first ten minutes of class by playing “Heads Up: Falcon’s Edition” and the Kestrel Students in Ms. Dominguez homeroom are on a 3-day winning streak! Students did receive a study guide for the upcoming Unit 1 Test that will be on Friday, September 28th. Good luck to all the students and GO NINERS!

PE:

With the new school year underway, students are having a blast in PE playing Rookie Rugby, Lacrosse and Soccer! Please be on the lookout in “Aeries” for “Grade Updates” each week as Coach Penirian, Coach Easterday and Coach Williams’ classes just took their first test this past Friday, September 14th.

Also, as a friendly reminder, please remind students that they should be applying
“Deodorants/Antiperspirants/Baby Powder or Sanitary Wipes” in the morning before they are coming to school and showering daily; as their bodies have already begun puberty even though there may be no signs of it showing physically!

 

Language Arts:

In Mrs. Cerezo’s Language Arts classes the students are testing their knowledge of the periods of art that we have begun to study. Each student has prepared a mini-presentation or a “broadcast” that demonstrates their understanding of their assigned period of art. Students have been very creative in their work!

 

Students are also preparing for their third debate of the year. This one poses the question, “Should football be played in high school?” We are eager to see where this debate takes us and how our debate skills have improved since the start of the year.

 

Also, parents please check your students agendas each week for their Language Arts grade. Students are given their updated grade weekly on their nest card and are asked to record it in their agenda as well.

 

Math:

Pictured Below: Mrs. King’s Scholastic class demonstrates their understanding of expressions by creating expressions that are equal to the numbers on a clock.

hh

Science:

Seventh and eighth grade science have started working on the first Academic Pentathlon unit. Students are wrapping up Part 1 of our unit on Light, and very excited to make their way through the following unit on Optics to get to the very popular subject of lasers. Parents, please note that the three Academic Pentathlon units are very notes-intensive. Students will have little to no homework during this time, and mostly be working on maintaining their science notebook.

More introductions from some of our awesome leaders….

 

 

IMG_2646 (1)My name is Ms. Takeuchi (Ms. T) and during my time here at TLC I have had the privilege of teaching in K/1 and 4th Grade at PCS and for the last 8 years, I have made a home in Discovery. I am a full time teacher and I also am the Learning Director for 5/6, Department Math Chair for 5th-8th and am the DCS 5/6 Leadership teacher. I hold a CA teaching credential, have my Masters Degree in Educational Leadership & Administration and will be finishing up my CA Administrative Credential in April.

One of my favorite things about my job is that I get to watch our kids transition, progress and gain confidence throughout their time in DCS. Entering 5th grade is always a new challenge for kids but we teach grit and push them to expand and stretch their learning capabilities. We take our students to new heights and we teach them to soar on their own by the time they leave us.

I look forward to working closely with you to build a strong home/school connection in order to ensure your child’s year in Discovery is successful!
Please feel free to contact me at any time

TK

This week, we studied the four seasons. We created a Seasons Book, which highlighted each of the seasons: for Winter, we pasted snowball cotton balls to icy, dormant trees; for Spring, we finger-painted bright, beautiful blossoms to the trees; for Summer, we used scraps of green paper to awaken the branches, and for Autumn, yellow, red and brown sticker leaves went aflutter! We also sorted photos of clothing items, food and weather to match their proper season. Plus, we watched some season-themed videos!

Initial Phase

What is a marble party? A marble party is a reward that the class earns by working together as a team. The teachers set a goal for the amount of marbles the class needs to earn in order to have a marble party. So far we have increased our goal 3 times this year—we have a really awesome class! Our latest goal to earn a party is 40 marbles. The class earns marbles by EVERYONE following classroom rules and procedures. Having a straight & quiet line, working quietly, following directions, and having good transitions are a few examples of how the class can earn marbles.

Phase One

Phase One is enjoying learning about Native Americans! This week they focused on Native Americans from the Northwest Coast. They learned about where they lived, food they ate, and what their homes were like. The students also made a fun totem pole craft. We will learn about a new group next week.

 

Phase One Snack:

We believe that a healthy snack helps students stay alert and energetic for learning. It also helps us focus on the benefits of healthy choices and healthy eating. We ask each student to take a turn providing a healthy snack for our classroom. Students will be assigned a day to bring snack. This schedule will go home in the green folder as well as in the weekly newsletter. Please bring in 44 pre-packaged snacks, NO DRINKS. We are asking that students bring in a labeled water bottle daily.

  • Examples of healthy snacks: pretzels, fruit cups, applesauce, fresh fruit, granola bars, breakfast bars, trail mix, popcorn, goldfish crackers, etc.
  • Snack should be individually wrapped. You may decide to buy bulk and bag up 44 individual snacks if you would like.
  • Please DO NOT send: cookies, chips, donuts, cupcakes, chocolate, Rice Krispy treats, fruit snacks or other high sugar treats. We will not be able to hand out these items as a snack.

Phase 2

Does your phase 2 student know how to tell time to the minute and count money?  These are ongoing concepts that can easily be practiced at home.  We would also like them to be able to figure elapsed time, meaning how much time has passed.  Randomly quiz your child on the time and see how they do!

Phase 2 AR goals are due on Friday the 21st.  Students who meet their goal will get a special treat the following Monday!  Please make sure you are checking on your child’s weekly AR progress by signing their chart that comes home on Friday.

TK

This week, we studied the weather. We participated in a weather-themed relay and graphed weather-related images! We also drew pictures of the weather each day in our very own weather mini-book. We used our whole bodies in response to weather movement cards: we drifted slowly like snowflakes, whirled like tornadoes and made our bodies electric like lightening! We also participated in a game of Lightning Strike, and watched a video about lightning and thunder.

Kinder

All about our homework tic-tac-toe….

What is the homework tic-tac-toe sheet that I see in my student’s folder? At the beginning of each month we will send home a homework tic-tac-toe sheet. The purpose of this is to provide parents with ideas of fun, hands on ways to help their student practice their weekly sight words and/or spelling words. Homework is completely optional; however, if your student does complete work send it to school in their red folder on Friday. Students earn classroom nickels for their bank for completed work. Save the monthly tic-tac-toe sheet for the entire month and try different activities each week.  Don’t forget to include twenty minutes of reading into your daily routine!

 

 

Phase 1

What is AR? You might hear your child talk about this and not know what it means. Accelerated Reader (AR) is a reading program that they will use in Phase One and Phase Two. Each student is assessed and then assigned a reading level. Once they receive a reading level they are free to read books in that level. Not all books are AR so make sure they are! Download the app Book Scanner and it will let you know the book level and quiz number. After your child has read their book 3 times (1 time for chapter books) they will then come to school and take a quiz on one of their classroom iPads or Chrome Books. The students receive points based on how well they do on the quiz. Each student is given a goal and has six weeks to reach that goal in order to go to their classroom AR party. There are currently two weeks left in our first AR goal period. Keep on reading Phase One!

Phase One has started a new unit in Social Studies on Native Americans. For the next four weeks we will focus on a different region of Native Americans. Ask your child what they have already learned about Native Americans so far.

Phae 2

Phase 2 students are continuing our study of maps and geography.  We also had our first student store last week!  We have found that our students always need practice with counting money.  This is an easy skill to practice at home…give them some coins and let them count!  We also work on adding up the items we’d like to purchase and subtracting from our total amount.  These are very important skills that come in very handy, and not just at student store!  You can also discuss how you can make the same amount of money using different combinations of coins and how to make change.

P6 enjoyed their first trip to the library and P7 will go next week.  Please make sure your child has their library card!  P8 will go to the library on September 27th.

Discovery 5/6

Recently, I have had questions by 5th grade parents asking what our different class names mean and how we group students.  We believe it is important that all of Discovery students leave us not only having strong academic skills, but with grit and a personal sense of lifelong learning. Our curriculum and pacing in all courses is implemented so that every students will feel constantly challenged and pushed, however, they should not feel overly frustrated. Their successes are earned through hard work and will be praised and celebrated.

We do group our student by Math ability because we offer multiple levels of math to fit each child’s needs.  We understand not all kids in Math are of the same ability in Language Arts, however, our Language Arts teachers do an excellent job differentiating instruction within their groups to reach students. Incoming students already seem overwhelmed by the changes in middle school, so moving as one cohort from class to class offers a needed sense of comfort and routine to our kids. Keep in mind that our students see 7 teachers a day and transition to 9 different courses.  We also have reduced our class sizes this year in each level so each teacher can help students on a more personal level.

Discovery Class Names:

Varsity: We focus on filling in any and all student knowledge gaps so that our students in this level can build a strong foundational skill set.

Scholastic: This is our grade level group, which is more advanced than what other middle schools are offering students of the same age. Students in this course will be guided through a steady paced course in Introduction to Algebra.

Honors: This is our advanced level group that takes a full course of Algebra 1. This is a mandatory two year course because of the complexity and fast pace.

 

7th/8th

General:

-Please make sure you have completed the Emergency Form for your students, if you have not turn them in as soon as possible

-Homecoming is just a few weeks away!

 

CJSF:

Next week, from September 10-17th, the students of the California Junior Scholarship Federation (CJSF) will kick off their first community service donation drive for the Tracy Animal Shelter! Flyers with more information and donation ideas will go home Friday. The Tracy Animal Shelter has opened their doors for many of our students to be able to come and do community service with them. This is just one more way our students and school can show their support for one of our local organizations in need. The 7/8 and 5/6 homerooms with the most donations will be awarded a special treat, proved by CJSF!

 

Language Arts:

This week in Language Arts students have continued their study of Art Genres, as well as continued to read The Revolution of Evelyn Serrano. Students are enjoying how seamlessly Pentathlon is incorporated into our curriculum!

 

Social Studies:

This week the students are rating President Kennedy’s foreign policy issues during the 1960s. Students read about each major foreign policy event/action, then gave his role/decision a letter grade (A-F) and explained why.

TK

This week, we practiced exploring our five senses! We explored our sense of taste as we sampled a variety of sweet, salty, bitter and sour foods. Plus, we kept our listening ears alert as we rattled sound cups with Mrs. Van Lehn! We used our sense of touch to investigate a variety of mystery items, and smelled sweet and citrus scents as we got our olfactory system engaged. We also trained our eyes to look at things in a whole new way; vibrant colors were admired and tiny details were noted with precision. It was a week of fun-filled exploration in TK!

All about crossing out smiley faces…

What does it mean when a student has to cross out a smiley face? Crossing out a smiley face means that a student needed a reminder of a rule that they already know. Crossing out a smiley face doesn’t mean that a student had a bad day. However, if a student crosses out three smiley faces in a day that will result in a yellow day. Crossing out smiley faces is a way for students to learn how to regulate and control their own behavior. While crossing out a smiley face here and there isn’t a big deal, crossing out one to two smiley faces each day in a week is not good. Look over your student’s behavior log and have a conversation with them about their behavior each week.

 

 

Phase One

Phase One has been hard at work! They continued learning about the government and elections. In Writer’s Workshop, they started writing super sentences by adding details. They are amazing writers!

Which folder is which? Red folders will be given to the students at the beginning of the week and contain Parent-Student Work. This work does not have to be turned in; it is just concepts to practice with your student. Red folders are due on Fridays. Green folders contain all the week’s work. It also has important notes, lunch and snack menus  and your student’s behavior chart. This folder is due on Mondays.

Phase 2

Some of our hard-working Phase 2 students were awarded with SWO certificates this morning.  At the end of every month we recognize Polite Citizens, Productive Workers, Proud Individuals, and Positive Cooperators.  We are proud of their hard work!

Please make sure you are reviewing and signing your child’s agenda every week.  This is a great way to have a conversation about what they learned that week.  Also, please ask your child about how they are making progress toward meeting their AR goal.  We are halfway done with our 6 week goal period!

P6 will be walking to the library on Thursday, September 6.  P7 will go the 13th, P8 will go on the 20th.  Make sure you return those library permission slips and get a library card!

Don’t forget, picture day is on Tuesday!

5th/6th

Discovery 5/6:

Important Upcoming Dates:

  • Science Camp Packet Forms are due Tuesday, September 4th to Mrs. Theall (vtheall@tracylc.net) àScience Camp payment of $350 are due by October 12th.
  • Congratulations to the new leaders of Discovery! Our first 5/6 Leadership Meeting starts on Friday, September 7th at 6:45 AM in Ms. T’s room.

This Week in DCS:

-Students received an updated grade sticker inside their agendas.  Please ask them to tell you about their grades and goals they have for each class.

-All of 5/6 went out today to have their first nest challenge of the year. All 4 nests played a game of capture the flag, but the Kestrels managed to win by collecting all 4 footballs out of their opponent’s territory.

DCS Survival Tip #2:

Aeries is what 5th – 12th grade uses to input all course assignments and grades. Teachers update Aeries throughout the week and it is a great resource to keep track of how your child is doing in their classes and if they are turning in all of their assignments on time.

A red box in Aeries represents a missing assignment- This means your child was either absent the day it was due or they did not turn in an assignment on the date it was due.

Aeries Website: https://sisweb.tusd.net/ParentPortal/LoginParent.aspx?page=default.aspx

 

7th/8th

Language Arts:

Students are learning about “half-life” and how it applies to the elements of the Periodic Table.

Happy Monday – Mark your calendars for September:

Parents-4-TLC:

Thank you to all the parents that came out to our first meeting of the 2018/19 school year. 

Next Parents 4 TLC 2018/19 School Year Meeting:

Wednesday September 19th, 2018

What is Parents-4-TLC you ask?  Great question! We are a group of parents interested and committed to giving back to the school, and fortifying the foundation of community the school instills in all of our kids.  

First, we discussed how successful last year’s first movie night was!!  We raised over $500, and for that being our first official event, we were/still are thrilled!  We will be hosting our second Family Movie Night, Friday, October 12th under the tent at the current Millennium High School location (IGCG campus, 1904 Corral Hollow), and movie is to be determined, but we will keep you posted on that. Admission will be free, and we will have concessions for sale.

Next up, we talked about the upcoming fundraiser Wacky Wallet Wednesday, September 20th and it is an easy way to give back to the school.  That day, when you dine out a select business (or businesses) will donate a portion of sales back to the school as long as a flyer is presented at the time of purchase.  There will be a few options that day, and one of them will be COFFEE!!   We are looking to hopefully (everyone cross their fingers) have options throughout the day, as well as dessert.  We will be sending information home as soon as everything is finalized, but put that date in your calendars!!!  There will be a few more Wacky Wallet Wednesday’s throughout the year if you can’t make this one.

Lastly, we talked about Box Tops.  National Box Tops For Education week is coming up September 17 -23, and we will be holding a contest for the class that turns in the most Box Tops again.  Last time we got over 5,000 Box Tops, and starting August 31st participating products will have double Box Tops and bonus Box Tops.!!  We will be sending sheets home to make collection easier.  The winning class will receive a party of their choosing, hosted by Parents-4-TLC.  We will be holding another contest towards the end of the year, so don’t stop clipping after September.  Also, please make sure to check expiration dates!

Don’t forget about the passive ways you can fundraise for the school:

www.smile.amazon.com and select Tracy Learning Center (not available on mobile devices)

www.officedepot.com will donate 5% of purchases (must specify Primary, Discovery or Millennium after each purchase)

What are SWOs? SWO stands for School Wide Outcome. We have 4 SWOs: Polite Citizen, Proud Individual, Productive Worker, and Positive Cooperator. In P2 students can earn their way into our “excellence box” for demonstrating one of our SWOs. Each time a student is in the excellence box they earn a dot towards a SWO bracelet. Student’s must earn 5 dots by getting in the excellence box 5 times in order to get a SWO bracelet. At the end of the month Primary will have a special awards ceremony where three students from P2 will be presented with a SWO certificate for consistently demonstrating one of our SWOs for the entire month.

 

Phase One

This week was the first week that Phase One had homework and they did great! Students will continue to receive their Red folders on Mondays with a Parent-Student work page. These pages will consist of the following: sight words, spelling words and even the grammar concept your child is working on. Please review the work with your child to help them be better prepared for their quizzes on Friday.

P3 and P4 learned about The Three Branches of Government while P5 learned about voting. We will continue this unit next week. In Writers Workshop all three classes learned about what a sentence needs to be complete and made a fun Sentence Buddy to help them remember.

 

 

Phase Two

This week phase 2 students learned all about maps.  We discussed the compass rose, explored different types of maps and why we use maps.  This is a great thing to do at home too!  Our students loved looking at the maps and finding familiar landmarks.

Phase 2 students will begin our monthly walking trips to the library in September.  Permission slips will come home soon.

Hello, my name is George Hepner. I am very happy to be starting my 18th year with the Tracy Learning Center as the Director of Facilities. I have seen many changes over the years, but I am truly excited about our new campus and buildings! Students, parents, and staff all deserve such a great site to call home.

I work closely with the TUSD, City of Tracy, contractors, and vendors that do business with the Tracy Learning Center. I deal with community members and work with our staff on the safety and welfare of our students. I also oversee the day to day maintenance crew who ensure our campus remains in great shape.

In addition, I work with our Executive Director Virginia Stewart on many matters here at the TLC.

For those of you who may not know who I am, I’m Mrs. Prescott, the school counselor for Discovery Charter School, 5th-8th grade. This is my third year at Discovery and I couldn’t be prouder to be a part of this AMAZING Tracy Learning Center team! I offer many services and opportunities to the students of DCS. Some think of me as the person they can go to work out their problems or check on their grades, but I do so much more!

Every year I take on take on new roles and add to the ways I can help students, teachers, and parents. Mrs. Stewart and I spend our Monday mornings seeing students in our ROAR (now SOAR) meetings to Strengthen Restorative Justice at our campus. I also meet with class representatives regularly to get student feedback on how their homerooms are doing on a group level and find ways to make every class run smoothly. I do individual and small group counseling, peer conflict mediation, grade checks and mentoring, the list goes on. For 7th and 8th grade, I’m the primary advisor to our California Junior Scholarship Federation (CJSF) chapter, with my co-advisor, Mrs. Cerezo. If you have questions about the community service requirements in 7th/8th, I’m your contact person. Please feel free to contact me for things big and small.

I tell the kids, in a nutshell, I’m a professional listener and problem solver. They have to do the work, but I’m here to help them along the way!

Some helpful information about RED folders…
Students will come home with their RED folder every Monday. RED folders are to be returned to school every Friday. On Monday there will be a homework letter with concepts that your student is working on for the week. A big part of homework is daily reading. Please read with your child every day for 20 minutes and then fill out their reading log. Parent/student work is a good way for parents to work with their student on important concepts that they are working on at school. Additionally, there will be a homework tic tac toe sheet that has ideas of ways to help your child practice their sight words/ spelling words. If you have any further questions or need additional ideas on how to help your child at home email the teachers at: p2@tracylc.net.

Phase 1

Phase One is hard at work! We started doing centers this week and practiced transitions. The classes have started reading their AR books and are already taking quizzes! Keep up the hard work Phase One!

Phase 2

This week phase 2 students learned how to be a Bucket Filler! We discussed how complimenting others, offering help and being kind can fill someone’s bucket. We all love to have a full bucket! We also were inspired by Kid President and shared how we are all AWESOME!
All phase 2 students have both spelling and math homework. In addition, we ask that they please read for at least 20 minutes every night.

fgty

I am Virginia Stewart, the CEO (principal) of the Tracy Learning Center. There are leaders in each of the schools who I delegate responsibility to as leaders for the individual schools.  They meet with me often.    I also teach two classes in Discovery.  I opened this charter school 19 years ago and watched it grow from 125 students to our current enrollment of 1300 students.  We have an incredible group of teachers who are truly dedicated to our students.  I interact with Kay all the time.  She keeps track of me!  I am so busy with observing and supporting teachers, dealing with discipline especially our ROAR – Restorative Justice System, meeting with leaders, as well as monitoring our finances, and writing reports.  Kay keeps me focused.    I ask all parents, teachers, and students and even my hairdresser to go through Kay to set a time to see me.  I always answer e-mails (vstewart@tracylc.net) the same day and that is a good way to ask me questions or to send comments.  I always have time in my calendar to see those who want to see me…Kay makes the time!

Thank you for selecting us for the school for your child.  We are very fortunate to have them.  All the new teachers have been so impressed with our students.  They are wonderful!

 

 

Kay Fagundes

 Welcome to a new school year!

fghWe are very excited! My name is Kay Fagundes and I have the pleasure of taking car

e of all of your child’s “office” needs. The children see me when they are ill, injured or simply just need someone to talk to. Yes, it’s true, I also pull a lot of teeth each year.

In addition, I assist Mrs. Stewart and Mrs. Prescott with our “ROAR” Discipline system. My phone number is (209) 290-0511 and my email address is kfagundes@tracylc.net. Please contact me with any questions, concerns or absences for your students. This year started out great and I expect it to be a wonderful and exciting year!

 

 

Air Quality Concerns

 

We know it has been very concerning for our students and parents to deal with the poor air quality this week. We receive regular updates from RAAN – Real Time Air Quality Update Network and when concentration levels reach higher than a “3” our teachers and coaches are instructed to have students indoors for lunch, recess and PE. Students who suffer with associated respiratory illnesses and or asthma have been advised to stay indoors as needed. We have also spoken to the TUSD Health Department and the Administration at Jefferson and confirmed  we are all following the same guidelines.

Please feel free to contact the office or email a teacher if you believe your child needs to be indoors during poor quality air days. Also, make sure your student’s inhalers/medical authorization forms have been given to the office. We will continue to send prayers and best wishes for those that have lost their lives, homes and livelihoods from these horrific fires and send our gratitude to all of those fighting these fires.

“The bunny because he is so fluffy!” -Skylar

 

“Playing outside, on the playground, the twisty thing is fun!” -Nolan

 

“I like when we go to the playground! It’s so much fun! I like going down the slide!” – Taylor

 

“I like learning about the bunny. He is very cute!” -Jaqueline L.

 

“I like the centers because the games we play are fun!” -Collin

 

“I like that all of my friends are here. And I’ve never had a school pet before-and I love bunnies” -Cody D.

 

 

 

Phase One had a great first week back at school! We spent the week getting to know each other, doing fun activities, going over the rules and expectations and even started assessing. Here are some of the fun activities we did this week. 

 

 

Phase 2 students had a great week!  Our 4th graders are setting a great example of our phase 2 expectations.  Students have been assessed and placed in math and language arts groups.  Phase 2 homework will begin next week.  All students will have weekly spelling and math homework.  We can already tell that our students are going to have a great year!

Language Arts:

All Language Arts classes have hit the ground running with curriculum this week! We have begun discussing our Pentathlon theme of the 1960’s and have even begun listening to some of the music! Students are very excited, as there are many songs that they had heard before!

 

Math:

Both math teachers are settling in very well! The students are excited about meeting their new teachers and have enjoyed getting to know them! All classes have begun working on their curriculum and doing very well.

 

Social Studies:

Social studies started the week by learning about President Roosevelt and the “Four Freedoms” he believed every person in the world should be guaranteed. These “Four Freedoms” became a central theme throughout the 1960s and helped shape the next generation of Americans.

Things are changing.  The paper emergency forms will now be revised or created on line through Aeries.  The parents in grades 5-12 are familiar with Aeries, but those in Primary, this will be a new experience.  The school will assist you as needed.  You will receive information on how to get on Aeries and there you will find instructions as to what to do.  In addition to the emergency form, you will find many of the forms and documents that you used to receive in a big envelope at the end of the year.

 

It is very important all emergency forms are up to date for the start of school.  If you need help, we will assist you.  School for staff begins on July 30, so there will be someone in the office who can help you.  This is a big change, but one we need to accept as part of the new age of technology and just think of the paper and postage it will save!

Be patient, give it your best effort and call for help if you need support.
