A Message from our CEO, Carolyn Woods

Hello! I am pleased to announce that we have partnered with Valley Community Counseling Services this year to provide counseling services to students in need. We will have a counselor on site every Tuesday who will be able to provide one-on-one support as well as small group sessions to students who are referred for counseling. Students receiving services will have prior parental approval, and no student will be seen without parent/guardian consent. This is a great opportunity and we look forward to a lasting partnership!

Mrs. Woods

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires public schools to provide special education and related services to eligible students. But not every child who struggles in school qualifies. To be covered, a child’s school performance must be “adversely affected” by a disability in one of the 13 categories.

TLC Charter Chatter – Week of Aug 22nd

TLC Charter Chatter

News, Information, and Updates for Primary, Discovery, and Millennium Charter Schools

A Message from our CEO, Carolyn Woods

Hello, TLC parents, guardians, and families! We are starting an awareness campaign about the dangers of social media. Classes have had discussions about social media use and I am looking into doing more, but I need your help. Please partner with us on this important issue. Here are a few tips on how you can help:

How can I keep my children safe using social media?

  • Learn about the programs and apps your child is using. Some social media platforms have age restrictions to join, but it’s easy for children to get around these.
  • Show interest in your child’s online life and ask questions.
  • When possible, keep tablets and computers in common areas where you can watch while your child uses them.
  • Get online family protection. Programs that provide parental controls can block websites, enforce time limits, and monitor the websites your child visits, and their online conversations.
  • Follow your child’s online accounts, and tell them that you are monitoring their online activity to help keep them safe. Some children or teens may create a fake second account for their parents to follow.
  • Ask them about the people they “meet” online. Showing genuine interest will help them feel comfortable talking about it. Explain that it’s easy for someone on the Internet to pretend to be someone they’re not.
  • Talk about the importance of keeping online friendships in the online world. Make it clear that if your child wants to meet an online friend in person, it must be in a public place and with a trusted adult.
  • Discuss what’s okay and safe to post online, and what isn’t. Online posts stay online forever. As a general rule, your child shouldn’t post anything they wouldn’t want a parent or teacher to see or read.
  • People can’t always control what others post about them. Explain that information and photos found online can turn up again years later.
  • Explain that autocorrect can sometimes lead to miscommunication and hurt feelings.

I know many of you are following these steps already, but it is always good to have a refresher!

Thank you for your support,

Mrs. Woods

Special Education

Survey response from over 2,000 parents by Common Sense Media, stated over 90% of their children under age 8 have used a mobile device and 48 percent report that their children under age 2 use mobile devices regularly.

While parents recognize the importance of limiting their children’s screen time, they are not sure how to go about it. With over 80 percent reporting they worry “a lot” or “some of the time” about losing parental control of kids’ access to screens, they also do not feel confident in their own ability to manage kids’ screen use at home.

Below are two articles related to screen time and how as a parent you can better control your child’s technology time. Click below to learn more.

Discovery Charter School 5th-8th:

Dear DCS parents and guardians,

This school year our Discovery Athletics program is in the building phase. We have appointed Coach Easterday as the Athletic Director and he has been reaching out to surrounding school districts to partner with them and develop our program. We wanted to include cheer as one of our programs, however, at this time, we are going to have to put a pause on the cheer program. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We are going to put clear guidelines and protocols in place for the future and this will take time to develop.

There will be more opportunities to participate in DCS sports for all students this year, such as basketball, volleyball, and soccer. Check the Charter Chatter often for updates on DCS sports.

Thank you for your understanding,

Carolyn Woods, CEO

Take a look into our classrooms!

IMPORTANT

As required by California law (Health and Safety Code 120325 – 120375), parents need to provide proof of a Tdap vaccine (pertussis – Whooping Cough Booster) for all students entering the 7th grade. Documentation must state the shot was given on or after their 7th birthday. This means ALL current 7th graders must get up to date NOW.

It is important that you begin now, to ensure your child gets his/her required vaccination prior to school re-opening on August 1, 2022. We suggest you call and arrange this vaccine appointment asap.

Getting them up to date now, will not only protect them against Pertussis but also ensure class placement and prevent exclusion from school once students return to campus.

Remember to ask your physician about other vaccines your child may need, and bring your child’s yellow immunization card to the visit. Please return a copy of ALL up-to-date immunizations to school prior to the beginning of the next year school year.

For questions, please call your primary physician today or call the San Joaquin County Public Health Services Program, at (209) 468-3481.

Students will not be allowed to attend campus classes without his/her completion of all school-required vaccines/immunizations.

Sophomore Andre Saldate also had a great game on defense! He had 8 tackles, a forced fumble, and recorded 4 sacks!

The Girls Volleyball opened their season on Friday, August 19th against Pacheco High School – we had a great crowd! The gym was packed, and our girls played hard, and while we didn’t come out victorious, we showed improvement from one game to the next. On Monday, the varsity team traveled to Ben Holt Academy and won their first set of the season! They also played at home against Chavez High School, and the games were close at all levels – these Lady Falcons are really fun to watch!
