Virginia Stewart

With just two weeks left to go in the year, I love seeing all the final projects and performances from all schools.  How far we have come in one year; amazing job to all students, staff and parents.  The PCS summer music program began this week and continues on next week with the DCS final performances.  

MHS fast track is just as it sounds, FAST!  Working with our Math teachers over these last few weeks has been a joy but I must admit, it has been intense.  I commend our teachers and our students for rising to the challenge.

I urge all of you to enjoy these last few weeks and finish strong.  Summer break is feels that bit more rewarding when you can look back and be proud of your hard work. Well done!

Lunch Debts

We have an extremely high number of students with outstanding negative lunch balances. We are currently sending home lunch bills with our students. Please pay these bills immediately. Students can not start the 2019/2020 school year owing lunch balances. If you have any questions regarding your student’s lunch account please call the school at (209) 290 – 0511.

 

 

 

Personal Days for Next School Year 2019/2020

VERY IMPORTANT CHANGE for our upcoming 2019/2020 school year Beginning August 5, 2019, we are reducing personal/family days for students from 10 days down to 7 days. Allowing 7 days is still much higher than what the district schools allow and we feel 7 days is more beneficial for the school and for each students’ education.

Science with Ms. Diaz

Our plants have sprouted and we have determined that the range of tolerance for plant growth with radish, pea, barley and corn seeds is between 40-80 mL of water. The optimum amount of water seems to be 80 mL based on both the number of sprouts and the measured height of the tallest plant. We had our last test of the year today, Friday June 14th, and are coming around to the the final leg of the DCS school year race! We start our last activity of the year next week, studying salt tolerance of plants and will report back to you soon!

Mrs. Zuniga Math:

We are down to just a couple more weeks of school and students are still very busy completing projects, finishing Fast Track, preparing for promotions and moving up a grade next year.

A Message From Ms. Dane- Ms. Dane’s Verbal Expressions/Mock Trial teams

“She did it! No, he did it! I object your Honor! Sustained, Over-ruled “- Just some of the statements heard during the Mock Trial Camp that 16 of our students attended on June 3 and 4 at Venture Academy in Stockton. During the course of intensive training and fun, students learned the basics of Defense and Prosecution, Opening Statements and Closing Arguments and joined with other students from the county to participate in Venture Academy’s yearly event. It was a fantastic opportunity to work with their High School team which is rated #5 in California.

Incoming 6th graders joined with 7th and 8th graders to prepare for next year’s Winning teams and Individual Students.- If the past is a predictor of the future TLC/Discovery should again make a fabulous showing at the County Competition. Major Congratulations to all of our participants – my personal thanks to the support from Mrs. Stewart, Coach B, and all of the parents who sent their children.

SUPER Quiz for ⅚- Congratulations to all of our students who were selected to participate in our very own DCS Trimester 3 Super Quiz! You did a great job representing DCS up there!!

Science with Ms. Diaz

Can you change environmental conditions to make things viable for organisms?? The answer is YES! By adding more salt to the hatcheries, students were able to get more shrimp eggs to hatch. Students also submitted their Brine Shrimp Investigation project booklets and started their next project booklet about the “Range of Tolerance” for plant growth. There will be a test on what was taught so far on Tuesday, June 11th. Keep exploring!

Social Studies with Mr. Bird

This week, we are finishing up our unit on the “Road to the Revolution” learning about the causes to the American Revolution. Students created a flip book to organize their work on the Coercive (Intolerable) Acts and will be creating a timeline to review the events surrounding the Battles of Lexington and Concord. We are also watching four episodes of Liberty’s Kids to extend our knowledge of the American Revolution. Liberty’s Kids is a great animated series for kids that showcases many of the events in this unit.

Personal Days for Next School Year 2019/2020

VERY IMPORTANT CHANGE for our upcoming 2019/2020 school year Beginning August 5, 2019, we are reducing personal/family days for students from 10 days down to 7 days. Allowing 7 days is still much higher than what the district schools allow and we feel 7 days is more beneficial for the school and for each students’ education.

TK

This week in TK, our Furs, Scales, and Tails show was a big hit! Check out all of the fun that our friends had with Banana:

Initial Phase

Check out our June calendar of events (sent home in green folders) for everything coming up this month! There will be detailed information about everything sent home as we get closer — this is more of a “save the date”!

With many schools already being on summer break, now is a good time to reflect and remember why we are so lucky to have a longer year/shorter summer break. Our students are still LEARNING! Curriculum is being taught every day and students are getting many extra days to soak up knowledge. In return, this helps with the transition to first grade as concepts are not “lost” over a long summer break. Our students put a lot of hard work in, and in the end it is so worth it!! Keep up the great work P2!

Phase One:

We are approaching the last month of school and with that means a lot of fun activities and events. A calendar has been sent home with all of these dates. More information will be sent home closer to each of these events.

The students in Phase One have spent the week planning and constructing their marble runs. These projects have been done in groups and had several requirements to meet with only using materials that were brought in. The students have enjoyed the ability to work together as a group, to plan and build these projects. They will be presenting these projects to the class next week. Great job Phase One students!

Phase Two:

Our 3rd and 4th graders have finished their state testing and we are so proud of their hard work! We are eagerly awaiting their scores!

There are many events coming up in June for our Phase 2 students. Please note the following dates:

Monday, June 3rd: 5th grade information night (for current 4th graders) at 5:30

Tuesday, June 4th: Phase 2 Field Trip to Columbia!

Thursday, June 6th: Parent Volunteer Appreciation at Unity

Thursday, June 13th: Music Performance at 6:30 (see green folders for more info)

Thursday, June 20th: Evening of Excellence at 6:00

Tuesday, June 25th: 4th grade breakfast/awards ceremony at 9:00 (see green folders for more info)

The concert will take place in the gym on June 19th, but this time it will take place during the school day. All four of my classes will perform together twice, once for the remaining 5/6 classes and then once more for the 7/8 classes. As always, there will be some new and creative elements added to the concert.

As May draws to a close, both students and staff take a deep breath as we prepare for the one last push to the end of the year.  But this also has been a week of celebrations.  It is so rewarding to see our Millennium seniors being recognized for all their hard work. The Tracy Press wrote a great article about 3 of a senior athletes – All whom have been a TLC since Kindergarten.  Every staff member has played a part in these student’s lives would like them to know how proud we are of their efforts.  Way to go Falcons!

Congratulations to all our Graduates.  Last night’s graduation was very special and we cannot wait to see what you accomplish in the future.

All PreK, TK, PCS and 8th Grade Promotion Picture Packets Must Be Returned to teachers or office by May 10, 2019!

TK

This week in TK, we learned how to care for our environment!

Our pal Wasteful Wally stopped by to teach us all about: recycling, reusing materials, and preventing waste. We learned the importance of conserving water and electricity. Plus, we discussed donating things to people in need, rather than throwing them away. We also began to share our Recycled Art projects; and, boy, oh boy, did we come up with some creative ideas. Our classroom was filled with bird feeders, pencil holders, and piggy banks galore!

Initial Phase

Next week our students will be participating in some testing where we will be able to see how much they have learned and grown! This test will only take a couple minutes and is done one on one with a teacher. So it is important to note that your child will not be testing every day. We need your help to make sure that your student gets a good nights sleep, has a nutritious breakfast before coming to school, and encourage them to do their best. Students will be participating in fun activities each day that we are testing. On Friday, we will be walking to the park. If you haven’t returned your child’s permission slip please do so by Monday.

Don’t forget to send in your jog-a-thon envelopes with your collected pledges!

Phase One:

This week, the students in Phase One participated in their first testing week and did a fantastic job! They were all so excited and eager to participate. Each day, there were some fun activities  in the afternoon to keep the students motivated. The teachers are so proud of how focused they all were and how serious they took this. Teachers will be sending home these results with report cards at the end of the trimester.

For the last couple of weeks in science the students have been learning about engineering and next week they will be construction their own marble run. They will be building these in groups and presenting them the following week. If you have any supplies that the students could use for these please send them in with your student.

Phase Two:

Our phase 2 students had their SBAC state tests this week in LA and math. We are so proud of their hard work and how seriously they are taking it. We will continue testing next week. Thank you to the parents who donated extra snacks for our testing days. We also enjoyed some “brain breaks” during the week, including walking to the park and a dance party on Friday!

We have selected chaperones for our upcoming field trip to Columbia on June 4th. We are excited to learn more about the Gold Rush on our upcoming visit to this fun old town!

Please save the date for the 5th grade information night (for current 4th graders) on June 3rd at 5:30 p.m.

A note from Ms. Diaz

It was an interesting week in class with hatching brine shrimp eggs after creating hatcheries with four different salt conditions. We found out that brine shrimp need to be in salt water in order to hatch, and will now try to get additional eggs to hatch by adding more salt to the hatcheries. Students have started their trimester project booklets and will continue to work on this the rest of the trimester. We will be having a test within the next couple of weeks about what we’ve learned so far about ecosystems and environmental conditions. Keep exploring!

A Note from Ms. T 
Our last day of school will be 
Thursday, June 27th.  On this day, we celebrate the year by having a carnival water day with the kids! It is a blast with many moving parts and activities for the kids.  I am in need of parent help on this day from about 7:30 AM to Noon.
I need help with grilling hot dogs, making snow cones, making cotton candy cones, running water slides, monitoring inflatable courses and with games.

Note:VERY IMPORTANT CHANGE for our upcoming 2019/2020 school year Beginning August 5, 2019, we are reducing personal/family days for students from 10 days down to 7 days. Allowing 7 days is still much higher than what the district schools allow and we feel 7 days is more beneficial for the school and for each students’ education.

A Note about Testing:

This week every student spent ample time on State Testing. We have been practicing thoroughly all year long and have now completed the science (8th grade only), math, and language arts tests.

In reflection many of the students felt very secure and confident about their testing experience and I am confident that no matter how each student did, they have worked hard, practiced diligently, and demonstrated the necessary amount of seriousness and focus required during testing.

The scores for each test will be given in a couple of weeks! Look out for any notices or information sent home by your students’ teachers about their results.

If your student was absent during testing we will have make up days scheduled to accommodate them.

Job well done students! It was a long and grueling week for all of us, but I am certain their hard work will pay off!

End of Year Reminder:

There are only five weeks left of school! Each class will continue to work and continue their curriculum until the very last week of school. There are many excited events for all to participate in in the coming weeks!

Events to look forward to:

Incoming 7th Graders – Very Important!

As required by California law, (Health and Safety Code 120325 – 120375), parents need to provide proof of receiving the Tdap vaccine (Pertussis – Whooping Cough Booster).

All students entering 7th – 12th grades must have proof of a Tdap booster shot. Documentation must state the shot was given on or after their 7th birthday. This means ALL current 6th graders must get up to date.

 

It is important that you begin now, to ensure your child get their vaccination and to avoid appointment delays.

 

Receiving the immunizations and ensuring they are up to date now, will not only protect them against Pertussis, but also ensure class placement and prevent exclusion from school in the coming year.  No 7th-12 grade students will be allowed to attend school next year without up to date immunizations.

TK

It has been an exciting week of learning in TK! We learned about the life cycles of the chicken and the frog! We participated in several life cycle art projects, illustrating the growth process of each, starting from the egg. Did you know that female frogs can lay up to 4,000 eggs at a time?

We also studied plants this week. We learned that plants need: sunlight, water, and soil to grow. We also learned to identify and label the: stem, leaves, roots, and flower of a plant. Finally, we studied the life cycle of a plant starting from the seed. Be sure to ask us about the new and interesting things we’ve learned!

Initial Phase

Next week our students will be participating in some testing where we will be able to see how much they have learned and grown! This test will only take a couple minutes and is done one on one with a teacher. So it is important to note that your child will not be testing every day. We need your help to make sure that your student gets a good nights sleep, has a nutritious breakfast before coming to school, and encourage them to do their best. Students will be participating in fun activities each day that we are testing. On Friday, we will be walking to the park. If you haven’t returned your child’s permission slip please do so by Monday.

Don’t forget to send in your jog-a-thon envelopes with your collected pledges!

Phase One:

The students in Phase One will be participating in some testing next week. For our first graders they will be tested one on one with a teacher and will only take a few minutes. The second graders will take their test on the ChromeBooks and will also only take a couple of minutes. Students will not be testing everyday, rather they will only test two days next week. Encourage your child to do their best, get enough sleep every night, eat a good breakfast and be at school on time.

To celebrate our testing week, every afternoon there will be some fun activities. Wednesday, the fun activity will be a walking field trip to the park. If you have not turned in the permission slip please do so ASAP. There will also be a raffle in the morning at Unity for those students that were at school on time and tried their best on their test. Good luck!!

Phase Two:

We had a great week in phase  2…we learned more about the gold rush and California history.  We discussed the different routes to California and how dangerous it was to travel west.  Did you know that many of  the gold miners never got rich, but some business owners earned a fortune!  We are going to use all of our gold rush knowledge to put on our gold rush day in June.  

Please remember that state testing for phase 2 will begin on May 20th.  Please see the information letter that came home on Friday.

A note from Mr. Bird

This week, our Falcon Historians are continuing our unit titled “Road to the Revolution.” We are having fun learning about the many causes leading to the Revolutionary War. Our Falcon Historians learned about the French and Indian War, Sugar and Stamp Acts, Proclamation of 1763, and the Committees of Correspondence so far. They created amazing acrostic poems to describe the Royal Proclamation, wrote letters to me expressing their opinions about a classroom supplies tax (fake tax, of course!), and will be creating protest posters to boycott British goods after learning about the Townshend Acts this week. To end this week, we will be analyzing Paul Revere’s famous engraving depicting the Boston Massacre.  

 

 

Science with Ms. Diaz

5/6th science have finished state testing in science and have moved on to learning about the environment, habitats and ecosystems. Students have set up their own brine shrimp hatcheries, testing

how a change in salinity affects shrimp hatching. They will continue to work with these and other organisms for the rest of the trimester

 

 

LA with Ms. Rodieck

This week we did State Testing, but also had the opportunities to learn what it will be like to have block classes next year.  Scholastic and Honors continued to read Full Cicada Moon and Varsity continued with Shooting the Moon.  Soon all three classes will be reading Romeo and Juliet.

All three classes had the opportunity to work on their SWO project and to read, write, and understand poetry.  Next week we will have weekly words again – and a quiz on Friday.

 

LA with Ms. Christensen

This week in Language arts the students took their SBAC test.  They put a lot of time and effort into the writing portions of the test.  Scholastic and Varsity also read from our book Shooting the Moon and Honors started reading Full Cicada Moon.  This book is set in 1969 about a half-African-American and half-Japanese girl named Mimi who is determined to beat the odds and become an astronaut.  The story is told in poems from Mimi’s viewpoint.

In Humanities, we completed our art unit and will prepare for our final and begin our final unit in music.  The students are also working on their SWO projects during this time.  They will show these on May 29th at the Transitional Night at the Museum event at DCS.

A weekly newsletter written to parents of the TLC

Mrs. Stewart

Happy Mother’s Day! As we celebrate this day, it is important to remember the ultimate teachers for our children are their parents. Children learn the most from them. They model them, they develop similar values and beliefs. It is such an awesome responsibility. It is always so important we try to do the job of parenting as best we can. We all realize the sacrifice and challenges that face us as we continue in the life long job of parenting. Yes, it is a life long job. As our children grow, we need to adjust and refine the role we play, but we continue to be the parent who guides and listens and suggests when it is wanted. There are many stages to parenting. Enjoy the moment and the stage you are now experiencing.

Note:VERY IMPORTANT CHANGE for our upcoming 2019/2020 school year Beginning August 5, 2019, we are reducing personal/family days for students from 10 days down to 7 days. Allowing 7 days is still much higher than what the district schools allow and we feel 7 days is more beneficial for the school and for each students’ education.

7th-8th State Testing is May 20th-24th. A notice will be sent home with reminders

Language Arts: Cerezo

This week all classes are spending a lot of time focusing on their essay writing skills. We have workshopped their introduction paragraphs and have shifted our focus to their body and conclusion paragraphs. These workshops have allowed me to read each paragraph individually and provide immediate feedback. I believe this will dramatically improve the students confidence and ability in essay writing.

We have also spent more time reading from our novel and preparing for the state standardized tests. Please remember that 7th/8th graders are testing May 20th-24th in Math, Language and Science (8th graders only).

Math:

Varsity- Doing practice and teaching for state testing ; may 20th- 24th

Honors- Doing practice and teaching for state testing ; may 20th- 24th

Scholastic-Doing practice and teaching for state testing; may 20th-24th

Verbal Expressions with Ms. Dane

Mask Museum display is on the wall showing the terrific research and projects that the 7/8 students did in Drama/Verbal Expression. They first made a short powerpoint showing some of the the styles of masks different cultures have and then decided on a design to develop for their blank mask. Paint, marker, glitter, foam were used to make the design and complete the project.

⅚ students wrote original scripts and made sock puppets and have been performing all week.

During testing weeks Ms. Dane’s enrichment will be Mixed Media collage and design elements.

Mock Trial competed Sat. May 4th, where we took 4 Individual Most Valuable Player awards. Congrats girls and onward to the next trial.

Physical Education:

Hiiii Everyone & Welcome Back from “Spring Break!” :)) Our “DCS Annual Jog-A-Thon” is on next Friday, May 10th, & our Students “Pledge Forms” are Due May 7th, whether they collected Jog-A-Thon Pledges or not!!!! Please feel free to help your students to collect money for DCS by taking advantage of posting their pledge form on “Social Media” as we too are parents have done this for our children to help raise money for their schools!!!! 😉

Also, as a quick friendly reminder as the weather is getting hot, 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!!! 🙂


Millennium High School

TLC/ Millennium High School recently entered into an agreement with Interquest Detection Canines, Inc., to provide trained detection canines to conduct random, unannounced inspections of all campus locations in the district.

These canines are trained to detect the presence of illicit drugs, alcohol, and gunpowder-based items. Campus buildings, parking lots, and grounds will be randomly inspected for prohibited items. If detected and found, the administration will initiate the appropriate disciplinary action.

These canines are non-aggressive retrieving breeds such as golden and labrador retrievers. They are trained to discriminate specific “scents” of contraband items and indicate the area where the scent is detected. Interquest provides service to over 1,200 public school districts across the nation.

With the recent publicity concerning the dramatic increase in teenage drug use, Tracy Learning Center / Millennium High School is taking every reasonable precaution to insure a safe and healthy learning environment for all concerned.

Respectfully,

Virginia Stewart

Executive Director
