Special Education Services at TLC

The Special Education Department at TLC is determined to provide a free and appropriate public education to every student enrolled. We are committed to doing this within the least restrictive environment, meaning that TLC attempts to provide interventions within the general education environment as much as is possible, based on individual student needs.

Each school has a Education Specialist and a Speech Therapist as well as a school wide Occupational Therapist. Our schools are currently able to provide the following services to our students identified with special needs:

  • Specialized academic instruction (Resource Support)
  • Speech and Language therapy
  • Social Skills Groups

Please feel free to reach out to the Special Education department if you have any questions or comments related to Special Education. We look forward to working with you!

Primary Charter School


Primary Charter is holding it’s 7th annual Jog-A-Thon on November 10th. Your student has received an envelope with a Jog-A-Thon pledge form attached to it. Students have until December 3rd to collect as many flat or per-lap pledges as possible.

Your student will be given a Jog-A-Thon t-shirt provided by the Physical Education Department. Each lap your student completes will be tallied on the shirt. You will reference their shirt to collect any per-lap pledges made. On December 3rd the envelopes must be returned to their classroom teachers.

All funds raised go directly back to Primary Charter School and your child’s education. The Jog-A-Thon supports physical education along with art, Spanish, and music electives. We also provide students with an awards/prize ceremony a few weeks following the Jog-A-Thon to celebrate their efforts to improve their physical health and support their school.

Thank you in advance for your assistance!

Go Falcons!!!

Fall Sports is quickly coming to an end and our winter sports have already jumped straight into their conditioning window, awaiting the official start of tryouts. Cross Country will host the league championship on Wednesday afternoon, 10/27 at Eagal Lakes. We are looking for some course volunteers from about 1:30pm-5pm if you’re able to help! You would be helping make sure the runners stay on course (and can also cheer on the runners as they pass by!) Email Miss Balsamo at

Volleyball had their final game of the season on Tuesday 10/19 out at Venture, with football wrapping up on 10/29 at Stone Ridge.

This Fall Season saw senior nights take place for 5 volleyball players, 15 football players, and 18 cross country runners! Some of our biggest numbers yet, leaving many open spots up for grabs on teams next season.

Currently hiring for the following:

*Head Coach- Varsity Boys Volleyball:

*Head Coach- Coed Tennis:

Posting coming soon: Frosh/Soph and JV Girls Volleyball for 2022

Parents often find themselves in a challenging role of separating themselves from “Parent” and “Parent Coach”. I would strongly encourage all parents to check out these courses available from NFHS Learn:

LUNCH: Ordering lunch is slightly different this year. All students should have a lunch account to pay for lunches. To register, go to and create an account. You must choose/type in your specific school (Millennium High School) and you will need your student school I.D. number. If you have any difficulties creating an account online, money can still be added to your account by either cash, check, or debit card. You can drop off payment in the lunch dropbox that is located in the main office. We are still in the process of adding new students to our mealtime system and hope to have it completed next week.

Lunch is ordered the day before it is delivered to class. All students should order their lunch during 4th period/HUB time. The Google Classroom code is SEUNSOU. Applications for Free & Reduced meals must be completed and turned in every year. You can apply on the school’s website.
