Monday Morning Message
It feels that it has been a while since I wrote this message. It has been a busy time. High school has completed the school year and is now in full swing with FASTTRACK. It is a lot of work for both students and staff but we all seem to be settling in and getting it done.
The Primary and Discovery staff continue on with distance learning far beyond any school around. I am so pleased with what we are offering.
We are in the planning stages of converting our special education program away from the Tracy unified District to another SELPA that caters to charter schools. The transition will take some work, but we are convinced we will be able to provide better services as a lower cost. Special education parents will be notified of the change soon.
We continue to plan to reopen on August 3. We are not certain what guidelines will be in place by then, but we have demonstrated our flexibility and we will be ready.
The graduation of our seniors was one to be proud of. We have received many compliments. Hats off to the staff that helped work so hard to make it all come together. We are very pleased with what we did.
Sadly,the budget for next year is devastating and will hurt the income of the staff in order to keep all our services and staff in place. The district is cutting staff by almost 100 people. We are maintaining our staff but each of us will have a cut in salary. Don’t worry, the staff is so dedicated, they will continue to work as hard as they do now even for less income. That is just how they are. As the CEO, however, it was a sad decision to make.

Watching you grow into such an independent person has given me such joy these last four years.

Mom and Dad are very proud of who you are and what you have accomplished so far, and we are excited to see what the next four years hold for you. We love you!

Mom and Dad
Brennan! I will miss you SOOO MUCH when you go off to high school! I will miss our conversations, our social studies discussions, and just watching you and your friends be silly! You will do awesome in high school!
Brennan is an intelligent student, gifted artist, clever writer, and compelling actor. He’s quick to jump on any challenge, first to volunteer ideas, and through his dedication and enthusiasm for new concepts, he won weekly art participation challenges more often than any other student! I have no doubt he will flourish in high school.
During this pandemic, Joshua finds creative ways to make use of his time. He takes the initiative to help out in the kitchen, assists in meal preparation and clean up. He enjoys assisting his sister bake cookies and bread. Even with all the carbs and delicious food in front of him, he tries to resist the temptation. He had lost at least 10 pounds and is on his journey to lose more.
I’m proud of you Baba!!!
This year, Josh has really come out of his shell in my classroom, and I have been so excited to watch him test out his jokes and sense of humor on his classmates. He is also incredibly bright, and without a doubt, one of the hardest working students I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. Congratulations, Josh! I’ll miss the best line leader at Discovery!
He is a funny, charming student who is entertaining and kind. I have had the pleasure of teaching him almost 2 years and having amazing banter with him in class. I wish him well in all he does and I hope he never changes his witty personality!
I will never forget Shahnoor the first week of school falling asleep in my class, from this week on I knew I could rely on him to tell me if my lessons were boring or not. Shahnoor has grown into an incredibly bright student with a personality that could make the whole class smile and laugh. Thank you for bringing me such joy this year! Congrats!!
As my first year teaching at Discovery, Shavez has brought a smile to my face every day! His playful attitude has brought a smile to everyone in the school! Don’t forget to study and ask questions! Congrats on your next journey to high school!
You have been one of the few that have challenged me in a variety of ways this year. You are so intelligent and your willingness to question and want to better understand is something I hope you never lose. You have so many talents and I look forward to hearing all you do and accomplish in the next four years. Congratulations on Promotion! Way to go!!
Aaron is a very bright student who always tries his best in my class. He is funny and intelligent all in one. He is an amusing and respectful young man who always participates and keeps us laughing! I wish him the best in HS and in life. I will miss you child!
Angel, You did it! I am proud, you worked hard. You are a gentleman, very respectful, never talked back and took the ONE -5 I gave you and apologized. I will forever remember you as “Jose”, don’t know why, lol you are a smart kid, keep it up! Good luck in high school!
Angel! I still remember your first year in DCS! I was beyond happy and proud to be your Bengal Den Leader! You were, and still are, one of the most spirited students I have had. You have so much respect with those around you and others should be more like you! Good luck in high school!
