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.

Yesterday, our Discovery Staff organized the first local Pentathlon for our students.  The topic of study for this school year was Africa which was very broad and detailed in scope.  The subject areas included: Math. Social studies, humanities, Literature, and science.  All of the students learned so much from the addition of this in our curriculum this year.  The event, however was special.  I felt as though I was at the county competition again, it was so professionally run. The students competed well and it was a great success.

 

We are now officially beginning our study of the next theme for Pentathlon: The Decade of the 60s.  This will be a great topic to explore.  This decade has been called a Transformational Decade and is being compared to the decade we are presently living.  The 60s brought about greater civil rights, more concern for the environment, the onset of laser technology, concern for world peace and there was definitely a change in music!  I hope you will enjoy exploring this new theme with your students next year.

 

We are able to add the Pentathlon theme to our curriculum to enrich each of our students because of our longer school year.  It has added a dimension to our curriculum that is across curriculum areas that is not usually offered.  Our students have gained so much from this additional focus.

This week on TK island the lil fishies learned about habitats. They learned about the different places like Arctic, forest, ocean, grassland, desert, jungle, pond, farm, Savannah, and our houses. They also learned about some of the different names for animal homes like den, coop, and hole.

While our new building is amazing and we are so very appreciative and happy, there are some parts of our original plan that just couldn’t fit into our budget. One part that didn’t make it was a kindergarten playground. The kindergarten playground will be located next to the bike rack area and open only to kindergarten students during morning recess. This new playground would open up some much needed space for the kindergarten students as well as the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade students. We have a quote for $25,000. If you would like to help us, simply hit the donate button on this page and we will be one step closer to our dream playground! We will accept donations from friends, family, etc… Thank you in advance! Share our website on social media to get as many donations as you can! The student that brings in the most donations will win a lunch playdate with the teachers!

 

 

 

 Phase One had a blast on their last field trip of the year! They went to the WOW Museum in Lodi and did an activity on the states of matter.

 

 

Phase 2 students are finished with state testing and we are very proud of their efforts! Our students stay very busy during the month of June…our 3rd and 4th graders are working on writing fairy tales, poems, performing readers theater, creating and playing math review games, and many other project based learning activities.

Congratulations to all of our May SWO award recipients!

We had a fantastic turn out for our annual Millennium Awards Ceremony.  I continue to be amazed at how much effort our students put into their education.  It is unbelievable when you realize how small our student body is and yet we see thousands of community service hours completed, scholarships  awarded and college acceptance letters received.  It is another reminder to our staff and students that school is more than just subjects and classes; you are learning how to be a contributing member of society.

 

We are proud of all your efforts and hope that your work ethic follows you as you move through your lives.

THen, we watched them fly away and we all said goodbye. Also, more excitedly the little fishies began to prepare for Mother’s Day to show their appreciation and how much they love their mothers!

VERY IMPORTANT Our new office number is (209) 290-0511

Even with State testing getting underway in all schools I see from this week’s Charter Chatter that learning has not stopped. While we do gain valuable information from state testing, it is not something we want any student to worry about. Do you best and that is all we ask. You have been preparing for it all year so get a good night’s sleep, eat a healthy breakfast and you will do great.

Please take a moment to read through the whole chatter this week. See what other schools are doing and be sure to mark your calendars for some of the big events we have this month.

I also wanted to share our appreciation for how parents are handling our new drop off and pick up procedures. It is not perfect, but our staff and crossing guards have commented on how well it is progressing and most importantly, how much safer it is for our students. Thank you for taking the time to safely get your students to and from school, it really does make a difference.

This week on TK island we had an amazing time learning about the life cycle of a frog and chicken. We learned that a frog goes through a process called metamorphosis. Frogs start off as a tadpole that has gills and then it changes to having lungs. The chicken starts as an egg that has to be incubated by a hen. Also, TK is still observing the life cycle of butterflies. They have seen the caterpillars turn into a chrysalis and now we are anxiously awaiting for beautiful butterflies!

Did you know that we are having a Kindergarten playground fundraiser contest!!! We love our new building, but there are parts of our original plan that couldn’t fit into our budget. One part that didn’t make it was a Kindergarten only playground. We need to raise $25,000 and we need your help. Please visit our website at: p2kindergarten.weebly.com for contest information and details about how you can help donate and win a lunch date with P2 teachers and two friends!!!

Phase One learned about plant needs and even planted some seed in their classrooms. Some of the seeds are already sprouting! P4 released their butterflies and had a butterfly release party!

Phase 2 students were busy little scientists this week! We created a device to protect an egg and did an egg drop experiment. We also learned about simple machines and created mini catapults! We’re excited about our trip to the San Jose Tech museum next week to learn more about science, engineering, and hands on projects!

Discovery Charter School

Our week of state testing has gone well. All students adjusted to the different schedule. If your student missed a day this week, they will need to contact their math teacher for make-up days.

Last Friday, April 27th was our 4th annual Jog-a-Thon. Thank you for all of your support with this special event. Students, teachers and parents alike enjoyed the day. Also a big thank you to our amazing, hardworking PE department!

The end of the year is rapidly approaching; however, school is still in session. The final day of school is Friday, June 29th. Pease email your student’s homeroom teacher if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you

Congratulations to our first Mock Trial Team. Our Middle School team competed last Saturday and came in first place at the County Junior High Mock Trial Competition. Mrs. Dane coordinated the training and the development of our first team. She is to be commended for her effort and her pursuit of excellence. Drama, speaking skills, appearance, and critical thinking in addition to great team work is essential for this competition. I was most impressed with the cohesiveness of the team. They truly learned how to respect one another in a great effort of cooperation.

This event was very special to me because I have wanted this to be part of the repertoire of competitions we enter as a school at both middle and high school level. I know that once we start, we will want to continue to do this. I am very grateful for the pioneer work done by this team. Bravo!
