Today marks the last official word from the Chatter until the start of the new school year.  We are very pleased with this school year and feel very fortunate to have the wonderful families and students we have in our schools.

 

Our schools from our new Preschool and Transitional Kindergarten to Primary, Discovery and Millennium all feel very proud of the excellent performance of our students.  We appreciate the support of the parents as we work with the students to achieve excellence.

In a recent essay written by our DCS students about why they appreciated our school, they said that they appreciated the great lunches, the dedicated teachers, the wonderful custodians who cleaned the campus so well, and the fact that they had the opportunity to learn in groups that were focused at the right level of instruction.  They appreciated that students are challenged but not overwhelmed and that everyone can succeed.

One student ended the essay by saying, “Never judge a book by the cover.  Our building may not be the best, but the pride inside is incredible.”

 

Thank you for a very good year.

Primary Charter

Initial Phase

This week in Initial Phase, students worked hard finishing up end of year assessments and preparing for Evening of Excellence. We were so impressed with the participation from P-6 families during Evening of Excellence. It was a fun event.
This year has been full of many firsts. Our first year of the new kindergarten program, the first year with 66 students, and the first year this team has worked together. We can proudly say that this year of firsts has been a success! Our team and students rose to the challenge and flourished! All of our students are leaving us more than ready for first grade. We have worked hard preparing for the transition and we know that the Phase One teachers will be so impressed. See you August 1st!

Phase One

What a fun filled and exciting week Phase 1 students had!  Evening of Excellence was fantastic and it was great seeing so many proud parents seeing their student’s work.  What a great turnout.  The students worked so hard to complete and present their projects.  The students also enjoyed an awesome time at the Multi-cultural Fair.  They got to learn about and experience so many new cultures.  Next week will be the last week of school and there are still many fun activities planned.  On Wednesday, Phase 1 students will dig up their time capsule and have a picnic lunch on the field.  On Thursday will be our Water Day filled with many fun activities and treats.  On Friday we will have a fun day getting ready for our summer break and saying goodbye to friends and teachers.  Every day at unity we will have an award ceremony celebrating different student accomplishments.  Look for information to come home in the Green Folders.  Have a safe, fun, and relaxing vacation!  Report cards and back to school information will be mailed home soon.

 

Phase Two

Evening of Excellence offers a great opportunity to reflect on another successful school year!  Thank you to all who were able to come and visit us.  We are so proud of the growth our Phase Two students have made.  The depth of knowledge they have acquired along with the character traits of all 4 of our SWO’s have led to third graders ready to take on the challenge of becoming leaders next year and fourth graders ready to embark on the journey into Discovery!  We are so excited for them!

Thank you, MHS for another amazing multicultural fair!  The crafts, food, and activities were great.  We appreciate all the hard work that went into putting the fantastic event together.  Thank you!!!!

TDAP Vaccine

Just a reminder it is the law that all incoming 7th graders provide proof of receiving his/her TDAP Vaccine. Please get a jump on this and take your 6th grader in ASAP for this mandatory vaccine.

 

This will be our final DCS Charter Chatter for the year.  We know our 6th grade students are prepared to move onto DHSP, our 5th grade students will become our role models for the incoming 4th graders, and the incoming 4th graders are excited to join DCS.

As we reflect on the year, we all agree this year is a year of many firsts. We had our first year of dens and den points.  Dens proved to be a positive motivator in terms of behavior, grades, and team building.  We had our first den rallies where super proud students rallied against one-another and cheered on their teachers who competed against one another to earn points for their dens.  We had our first annual Jog-A-Thon where students took pride in their running of laps and in their fund raising abilities.  We held our first annual 6th Grade Breakfast where 6th grade students and their families enjoyed food, entertainment, and celebrated 6th grade students, and their superb year of firsts.  Our first annual Awards Ceremony was held on Friday.  Students received medals, trophies, certificates, and gift certificates.  Awards were given for highest den points, academics, dedication, and perfect attendance. We had our first graduate walk, where Millennium graduates returned to talk to DCS and DHSP students about their time in Millennium; they celebrated their year of firsts as well, to include the first time that 100% of Millennium students were accepted to colleges.

As we reflect on our year of many firsts, we want to take time to thank the parents who help make these firsts possible.  The support we receive is appreciated.

We are pleased to announce our entire team of teachers will return next year.  Over our break, we will meet to plan lessons, review student needs, and prepare for August 1st when we will welcome you child(ren) back to school.  If you have any questions over summer break, please feel free to email shawkins@tracylc.net, email will be checked regularly.

 

SWO INTERVIEWS WERE A SUCCESS!!!! Discovery Students were ON FIRE – their interviews were exceptional.  As we interviewed students, they remained poised, self-assured, and exceptionally prepared. We would like to thank the parents for supporting our year-long SWO project.  Your time, patience, and efforts are appreciated.  SWO’s are a large part of teaching students about themselves, their strengths, their and passions.  SWO’s reiterate the importance of being true to oneself, working with others, giving to others, and taking pride in all one does.  Keep the Scrapbooks.  SWO’s are a part of student work through Millennium.  They will be very helpful as students apply to colleges.

Dens are still going strong.  Points are working well for our students.  Overall their daily behavior is excellent, and they take pride in their points….our Bengals are in first place overall!! Congratulations to all dens and many thanks to our motivating den leaders. You are an inspiration to everyone.

 

                      DHSP Charter Chatter:

 

What a fantastic year it has been in DHSP!!!!

Thinking back to the first month of school in August with Back to School night, the beginning of Den points and Saturday school, the end of PHSA and the beginning of DHSP what changes, WOW!!

 

There have been lots of dance performances, art exhibits, Building the float was interesting, to say the least. And the academic competitions…..Math Counts, Math Olympiad, Spelling Bee, Science Olympiad, and Academic Pentathlon. The students are already gearing up for all the competitions for next year.

 

Mrs. Wallace believes the students would say that the study of Africa was their favorite in Social Studies this year. The “Africa Live Museum” it was called. It included dancing, wearing of cultural clothing, and food; Lots and Lots of food.

Mrs. Stewart’s English 78 taking the PSAT and scoring higher than high school students in the state was amazing!!

The Jungle Book taught in all Language Arts classes. Students will always remember their city bus field trip to see The Jungle Book at Cinemark. It was the first time on public transportation for most of them. That in and of itself was a fantastic learning experience!!

The staff vs. students’ softball game took place this week: The teachers won, but I think the kids enjoyed the competitions between innings the most!

Looking ahead to the end of the year activities: Cosmic Bowling and Great America for the eighth graders, along with Promotion of course. The field day on the last day of school for the 7th graders will be a blast, as always.

 

The staff and students are already busy planning for next year. Den Pride is going to EXPLODE next year.

 

Overall, it has been a good year, change is not always welcomed, but it is often for the best. DHSP is ready for what lies ahead.

 

Enjoy you summer break. We will see your students back here on August 1st

Schedules

Class schedules for next year are ready for distribution on Monday, June 20th after school. Students must bring in their updated emergency information form to receive their schedule. Forms were mailed, but are available from the counseling office if they were misplaced. This year, we are excited to announce that Millennium will be having two lunch periods. We are able to utilize our space and  offer more classes this way.  As in the past, schedule change requests will be limited.  Planning schedules is a highly complex process. Since students are leveled in many core classes, switching classes is not an easy one.  Please note that class change requests for lunch period switches, teacher preference, or time preference of classes will not be granted. Thank you for your support and we look forward to another successful year at Millennium!

 

6th Annual Multicultural Fair

High School students hosted the annual Multicultural Fair on Friday, June 17, 2016. Each year MHS students volunteer to showcase a different country for Primary students to attend and experience a variety of cultures around the world.

The President of the United States has a daughter who has been accepted to Harvard, but she has chosen to take a year off.   There is a considerable debate as to the pros and cons of taking a gap year before college.  As I explored the debate, I realized that our MHS students actually experience a gap year their senior year of high school.  Most of our seniors are out of school by 10 in the morning.  They have time to continue work in community service, apply for scholarships and colleges, to work in an internship which gives them insights into possible careers and to take college classes.  Many of our seniors begin college as a second year student.

 

On another note, our little ones in Primary had a SNEAK PEEK to their new classes for the next school year.  It is an exciting time for our fourth graders to move into DCS.  The students visited and experienced being with our current fifth graders.  They also learned the den they would be joining.  The other students had fun “moving up” as well.

 

Finally, this week, we had a visit in DCS from graduates of MHS.  They did a victory walk for us.  They visited each room in their cap and gown and shared their high school experience and what they would be doing next.  It was an awesome moment.  The students asked incredibly good questions. We wish the students success as they go off to Berkley, UC schools and other great places.  It was so nice of them to visit our middle school students even after they had graduated.

TK students have been busy in science and social studies. Students reviewed the plant life cycle and learned all of the different parts of a plant. They enjoyed seeing how the various parts of a plant are edible! In social studies we learned about our American flag and understand why we celebrate Flag Day. Ask your child some facts they learned about this American symbol!

Primary Charter

PCS would like to invite all Primary students and families to our Evening of Excellence on Wednesday, June 15th. Each classroom will open at 6:00 PM for you to visit and see all the wonderful learning that took place during the year. It is always an exciting event, and this year it will be even more special because Mrs. Watson and our fourth grade students are going to grace us with a recorder concert at 6:30 in the PCS unity courtyard. We hope to see you all there!
Initial Phase
This week in Initial Phase, students got to see what a first grade classroom is like at Sneak Peak! When they returned, the first grade teachers expressed how impressed they were both academically and behaviorally. They are ready for first grade!

Next week brings Evening of Excellence. This is a casual evening that showcases student work and allows parents to see what we’ve been up to. We hope to see you there.
Phase One
What a fabulous week Phase 1 students had! This week the students participated in Sneak Peek. That means they had the chance to spend an hour in their new class and experience what it will be like to be in the next grade! They were so excited to learn all about next year! This week students also worked very hard to finish up end of trimester projects and other work being presented at Evening of Excellence. We hope you will all be able to join us next Wednesday, June 15, 2016 from 6:00 – 7:00. Look for an invitation to come home in your student’s folder. They are so excited and proud to show off what they have learned in Science about force, motion, friction, simple machines, and gravity. We definitely have some future engineers in our classes!!! We are also looking forward to other end of year activities; Multicultural Fair (June 17), Field Day (June 23), and don’t forget, Friday, June 24, 2016 is the last day of school and it is early dismissal (12:00) NO lunch will be served that day.
Phase Two
Our phase two students participated in Sneak Peek on Wednesday! Our fourth grade students visited DCS and had the chance to practice following a schedule. They learned all about what to expect in Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, and Science. They came back very excited and eager to make the transition from Primary student to a middle school Discovery student!! Third graders stayed in their classrooms and welcomed their future classmates from P2, P5, and P7. They helped introduce them to Phase Two and shared about what to expect next year. We are looking forward to welcoming our third graders back as returning students and we wish our fourth graders the best of luck in fifth grade!!!

JOG-A-THON AWARDS – Last Friday (too late for the Charter), students gathered together for a Jog-A-Thon Awards Ceremony.  Students received awards for many reasons – including the student who raised the most money.  Christian Lavagetto won a Play Station.  Thank you to the coaches who put all of this together, for the teachers who helped, and most importantly to the students who fund raised and ran many many, many laps!!

Senior Walk

 

 

 

Six of our recenlty graduated seniors returned to Discovery and DHSP to share their experience at Millennium with our younger students. The Discover and DHSP students had great questions for our graduates. This was a great experience for all students and a tradition that we’d like to continue in years to come.

Initial Phase

What a Week!  Our field trip to the Stockton Children’s museum was the perfect compliment to our Trimester 3 final project!  We are so proud of each and every one of our students effort, contribution, and dedication to our classroom community.  In addition, we are just as proud of our students behavior at the Children’s Museum.  The museum gave our students the opportunity to explore the tools, buildings, settings that our community helpers work with each and every day.  Below are some pictures for you to enjoy!

Wow!  It seems that summer is officially here!  Please remember to send your student to school with a water bottle.   We will continue to play and have PE outside as long as it is not too hot.  Phase 1 students have been very busy planning, designing, and building their marble runs in Science.  They are just like little engineers at work!  They can’t wait to show you their final projects at Evening of Excellence (Wednesday, June 15th from 6 – 7).  They are also working very hard on their informative writing and putting the finishing touches on their paragraphs.  Only 3 more weeks of school, but students are continuing to work hard.  Please make sure to check the newsletter for all upcoming events.

 

 

Phase Two

Three more weeks and still so much to do!  Phase Two students are working on meeting their last AR goals,  reading and working on projects in language arts, building bridges, mazes, and structures in science, and becoming experts in geometry and measurement in math.  It is fun to watch their enthusiasm  for learning last all year!!!

We have many exciting events planned this month.  Make sure to read all newsletters that come home and check the green folders for important information.

6th GRADE BREAKFAST!!!!!….The 6th grade class of 2016 celebrated their year of many “firsts” over breakfast, while enjoying the company of their parents, grandparents, Tracy Learning Center staff, and peers.  Guests enjoyed listening to music and browsing the picture wall.  Entertainment from Loren and Ashliegh always thrills the crowd.  Mrs. Stewart was our guest speaker.  She asked students to enter Discovery High School Prep with the leadership, pride, and spirit they have shown while in Discovery; she expects them to carry on their great attitudes and excellent leadership. At the end of the event, students received certificates from their Den Leaders Ms. Zaca and Coach Lopez (Bengal Tigers) and Mrs. Beckner and Coach P (Malayan Tigers).  After the celebration, students spent an hour signing beach balls, and talking about their experiences at Tracy Learning Center.  Our 5th grade students are already talking about the breakfast they will have in June of 2017.

THANK YOU to Mrs. Stewart for your words of wisdom and encouragement….Ms. T for your expertise when planning…Mr. Hepner for your tireless work ethic; ensuring the gym was set-up with tables and chairs needed for the event….Mrs. Mendez and staff for the excellent food and service….Mrs. Grant for setting up the sound equipment…and to all the family members who joined us.  Because of you, the event was spectacular.

Charter Chatter June 3, 2016

Fast Track

The regular year has come to an end and Fast Track began Friday, May 20th and will run until Friday, June 24th. We will continue to begin each morning with Unity at 7:55am with classes ending at 12:30pm.   Just a friendly reminder that daily on time attendance is crucial during Fast Track. Four tardies is equal to one full day of absence.  Any combination of tardies and/or absences of more than 2 days will result in an automatic failing grade regardless of the reason.  We appreciate your support in promoting the importance of attendance and punctuality with your child.

 

Fast Track is also a great time for students to complete community service hours. The deadline to turn hours in for the 2015-2016 school year is the last day of Fast Track, Friday, June 24th.  Any hours volunteered after Fast Track will need to be turned in when the regular school year resumes.
