TLC Charter Chatter
News, Information, and Updates for Primary, Discovery, and Millennium Charter Schools
A Message from our CEO, Carolyn Woods
I would like to publicly acknowledge our staff for going above and beyond the last few weeks, stepping in to help alleviate staff shortages. I am sure you are aware of the struggles schools have faced since returning from break, and TLC is not an exception. We have very limited access to substitutes so we have had to rely on each other to cover classes and step in where needed. It has not been easy, but we have made it work, due in large part to our dedicated teachers and support staff. Thank you, everyone, for coming together and supporting each other!
Have you ordered your free at-home COVID-19 tests? The government launched the new federal website on Wednesday. Each household is eligible to receive four COVID-19 at-home test kits for free. To order yours, go to https://www.covidtests.gov.

AERIES Emergency Info Needed.
We still have several families who have not completed an updated emergency contact form. This information is very important and is used to contact parents if there is an emergency. If you have not completed this form, please do so and return it to our front office ASAP
Discovery Charter School 5th-8th:
**Attention All Parents**
Below you will find a link to our electronic parent website (AERIES). This database contains critical information about each DCS student and each student’s emergency contact information. This portion MUST BE FILLED OUT BY YOU. All data will be used to contact you in the event of an emergency. It is very important that you take the time to ensure we have all necessary information.
Use the following link https://tracylearningcenter.aeries.net/student and login in with the email and password you created when registering your student at the beginning of the school year. From there, navigate to the DATA CONFIRMATION PROCESS link. Once you enter the information, THE LAST STEP IS TO PRINT THE EMERGENCY CARD and turn it into the front office or to your child’s teacher.
If you believe you have already completed this process OR you need help completing this process please call 209-290-0511. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

Do you feel like your child is able to solve their age appropriate problems or do you feel like you are constantly needing to intervene or help your child?
Kids face a variety of problems every day, ranging from academic difficulties to problems on the sports field. Yet few of them have a formula for solving those problems.Whether your child can’t find their homework or constantly forget their items, problem solving skills are the key to helping your child manage their life at each stage.
Problem solving skills will be needed throughout your child’s life. A 2010 study published in Behavior Research and Therapy found that teaching your child problem solving skills can even improve their overall mental health.
In this week’s SPED Spotlight we are highlighting how to teach problem solving skills for children ages 3-12+.
Check out some tips on how to effectively teach problem solving skills to your child by age.

LUNCH: Ordering lunch is slightly different this year. All students should have a lunch account to pay for lunches. To register, go to https://www.mymealtime.com/ 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.
