We ended up with a very short “winter” and now the Spring season at TLC has kicked off with our annual TLC Jog-A-Thon.  I has to take my hat of to all the staff and parents who helped organize such an event.  Also, congratulations to our students who did an amazing job out there.  Even with all the construction, our staff and students did not let a little dust stop this great fundraiser.  I even saw one of our crossing guards out there running a few laps!  Good job Mr. Larry!!!

This week on TK island the little fishies learned all about the life cycle of a butterfly.  They even have some special visitors come to the island in the form of a caterpillar. The students are observing the caterpillars that will soon be a chrysalis. Before, we know it we will have some butterflies on TK island.



Phase One has a fun week learning about plants! P4 did a fun activity about eating plants. Some math groups are working on perimeter and wrote their names using blocks and had to figure out the perimeter of their name. Finally we ended the week with our 4th Annual Jog-A-Thon.


Congratulations for all your hard work in the 4th Annual TLC Jog-A-Thon.  So proud of all our sudents




April is almost over and it looks like the warmer weather may be here to stay.  Please keep in mind that allergy season is here; it may be helpful if your student suffers from allergies, to send tissues with them. If you would like to donate tissues to your student’s homeroom, that would be appreciated as well.

Order forms were passed out for the yearbook and the 8th grade dedication pages.  Extra copies are in the office, or students can see Ms. Rodieck for additional order forms. Parents may also email Ms. Rodieck for an on-line form as well.

State testing begins Monday, April 30th   through May 4th.  It would be beneficial if students had a good night sleep and a healthy breakfast during testing.  If your students misses school during this time, make up tests will be given the week of May 7th –May 11th.





Along with an AMAZING effort in our TLC Jog-A-Thon, our DHSP students also sent a team to participate in the San Joaquin County Mock Trial Competition.
