TLC Charter Chatter
News, Information, and Updates for Primary, Discovery, and Millennium Charter Schools
A Message from our CEO, Carolyn Woods
Hello! Primary had two outstanding performances this week that I would like to highlight. The first was the spring concert. Mr. Martin, our Primary music teacher did an amazing job teaching music this year despite all of the COVID-19 precautions that were in place at the beginning of the year! He still managed to teach the students all about rhythm, pitch, keeping a beat, and memorizing lyrics and all of it was on display during the performances. Thank you to all parents who attended the concert, it was a great turn-out! And congratulations, students, for doing such a wonderful job 🙂
The other event that took place this week was Senora Wharton’s Spanish Bee! Senora Wharton is our Primary Spanish elective teacher. She organized a Spanish spelling bee for our first through fourth grade students. It was a great way to showcase our Spanish language program. Students took their role as spelling bee contestants very seriously! It was quite impressive to see. Great job, students and Senora!!!
We look forward to wrapping this year up in the next couple of weeks. The DCS awards ceremony is coming up along with other fun end of the year activities.
Next Year’s School Calendar – 2022-23
This month’s lunch Calendar:
Tracy Learning Center Pre-K
We are winding down the school year with some fun events happening. Next week we will have “Tracy” the animal guy come and share his amazing animals that we have been learning about. Followed by graduation for our children who will move on to Kindergarten. This year was a blast and we will miss all of the families and memories that we have created together.
Primary Charter School
During the last week of school (June 20-24) Monday-Thursday,PCS pick up times/carline will be from 2:50-3:30. This is to accommodate the early release of DCS that week. Please make sure your child is picked up by 3:30 those days. Friday dismissal will be at 11:00.
Thank you to everyone who attended our concerts this week. Our students were amazing and were so proud to show off their talent! Mr. Martin did a great job organizing the event and we are so fortunate to have such a successful elective program at PCS.
We also held our Spanish spelling bee for our 1st-4th graders this week. Thank you to Senora Wharton for working so hard with our students this year, including having them not just speak Spanish, but also read and spell in Spanish!
This Friday at Unity we had our first staff vs. students dodgeball game! After a hard battle the P6 4th graders beat the teachers. The teachers will get another chance next week when they play P7. Stay tuned!

Millennium High School
I introduced myself last week as the new Millennium High Athletic Director, but maybe I should tell you a little bit more about myself.
My name is Drew Reyes, and I have worked at Millennium High School since 2005! I have been an English teacher and baseball coach for every single one of my years at TLC. I have also been fortunate enough to work for every single one of the previous Athletic Directors, and that invaluable experience will serve me well in this new position. I attended St. Mary’s High School and the University of the Pacific and received my teaching credential from the SJCOE Teachers College. I will continue to coach baseball next Spring, which will be my 13th year as head coach. My daughter Hannah graduated from Millennium in 2021 and is attending Cal Poly, my son will be a Junior and my nephew will be a freshman at MHS next fall. I am looking forward to this new challenge, and I want to accomplish a number of things as Millennium’s new Athletic Director, including improving facilities and school culture, while also continuing to build upon the outstanding work that Coach Balsamo has done as my predecessor.
The Varsity Volleyball Position has been filled!!! Our new Varsity Volleyball Coach is Marilou Treltas. She is excited to be joining the Millennium Coaching Staff!

FAST TRACK 2022 – Monday, May 23rd to Friday, June 24th
FAST TRACK is a MANDATORY program for all high school students which gives them the opportunity to take ten credits of a course to remediate or accelerate, and/or to take a college course. During FAST TRACK, students take a full year (two semesters) of a course for 4.5 hours a day (including a fifteen-minute break) for five weeks beginning Monday, May 23rd to Friday, June 24th. The day begins at 8:30AM and ends at 1:00 PM.
ATTENDANCE: Attendance during FAST TRACK is different from the school year in that students are only allowed to miss 8 hours of time during the entire FAST TRACK. Tardies count as one hour and a day is four hours. Any combination above 8 hours results in a need to withdraw and an F grade for the affected semester. There are no excused absences during FAST TRACK. This is necessary in order to meet the state requirement for issuing credit for a year’s worth of a course. Students may not miss more than two days (8 total hours). Four tardies are the equivalent of one day of school, therefore; two days absent and one tardy will result in a failing grade.
Letters have been mailed home including additional details as well as your child’s FAST TRACK class.
