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


 

A Message from our CEO, Carolyn Woods

Hard to believe but Monday, March 7th marks the beginning of the third trimester for Primary and Discovery and the start of the forth and final quarter of the year for Millennium! Primary parent conferences will take place in person for the first time in two years. We are also welcoming back our annual Scholastic Book Fair, which will be held the week of March 14-18th in the gym. Plans for end of the year senior activities are well underway and Discovery will be planning promotion activities soon. We are excited to be able to start bringing back our traditions in a safe way!

_______________________________________________________

Reminder: After March 11, 2022, the universal masking requirement for K-12 and Childcare settings will terminate. CDPH moves from requiring masks to strongly recommending masking in indoor settings for all individuals, regardless of vaccination status.

NEXT STEPS: Summer 2022 Delta College Early Start

Students who have applied to Delta College and received their Delta ID number can proceed to the next steps! See the attached video (https://youtu.be/VcZQKSauzMA) and associated slides (https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1aNoGZkEpoLDPYVDH2kW07B4yQZICRu1pWUNUxQ11SF4/edit?usp=sharing) for guidance on how to…

1. Complete the MHS Grade Check Google Form – due for ALL students on 3/16 at 11:59pm. (https://forms.gle/bPvuhjwqxzhXtCJ77) *If you have submitted a Dual Enrollment Form in the past, the MHS Grade Check Google Form is all you have to submit in order to take summer college classes.*

2. Complete the Dual Enrollment FormONLY IF you are taking our Summer 2022 Dual Enrollment class, ENG 30 The Film as Literature, as your first class ever AND/OR your first Dual Enrollment class ever. Due 3/16 at 11:59pm along with the MHS Grade Check Google Form. (https://na3.docusign.net/Member/PowerFormSigning.aspx?PowerFormId=eb278dc9-8e42-43ed-81ef-bd8fe475a95e&env=na3&acct=2646a927-3855-4426-8e4f-f7d8ad93aa54&v=2)

PLEASE NOTE: All Delta College classes will be online in Summer 2022. These courses will require a high level of independence, as the courses are accelerated (only 6-8 weeks long) and asynchronous, meaning that there are no required Zoom class meetings with your instructor. Students will have to manage themselves to meet deadlines – completing readings, assignments, projects and tests, and reach out to their instructor and/or Delta College staff for help when needed. Online summer college classes require a lot of responsibility and determination. Here are our recommended classes for this semester: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1LlFxGJQMg1_wYAVtc1QsHvLgEdgydGMbeUN3-26-CvM/edit?usp=sharing

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.

CA Public School Mask Update – March 1st 2022

 

March 1, 2022

Re: Mask Update

TLC Families,

Yesterday, Governor Newsom announced an update to the masking guidance for K-12 schools in California.  Beginning at 11:59 PM on March 11, 2022, California will move from mask requirements to mask recommendations in schools.  This means that after 11:59 PM on March 11, 2022, students and staff members (regardless of vaccination status) in K-12 school settings will be strongly recommended, not required, to wear masks while indoors.  The Tracy Learning Center schools will comply with the new masking guidance, as we have with all other guidelines and mandates regarding COVID-19 thus far.

Please note that this change does not take effect until after 11:59 PM on March 11, 2022, effectively Saturday, March 12.  Masking is still required by all while indoors on school grounds until that date.

If you have any questions, please contact the office at 209-290-0511.

 

Sincerely,

 

Carolyn Woods

CEO, Tracy Learning Center

Re: Actualización de cubreboca

 

 

familias TLC,

 

Ayer, el gobernador Newsom anunció una actualización de la guía de cubrebocas para las escuelas Kinder al grado 12 en California. A partir de las 11:59 p. m. A partir del 11 de marzo del 2022, California pasará del requisito de cubreboca a la recomendación de cubrebocas en las escuelas. Esto significa que después de las 11:59 p. m. del 11 de marzo del 2022, se recomendará encarecidamente a los estudiantes y miembros del personal en entornos escolares Kinder al grado 12 que no usen cubrebocas mientras estén en interiores. Las escuelas del Centro de aprendizaje de Tracy (TLC) cumplirán con la nueva guía de uso de cubrebocas, como lo hemos hecho con todas las demás pautas y mandatos con respecto a COVID-19 hasta el momento.

 

Tenga en cuenta que este cambio no entrará en vigencia hasta después de las 11:59 p. m. del 11 de marzo del 2022, a partir del sábado 12 de marzo. Hasta esa fecha, todos deben enmascararse mientras estén en el interior de la escuela.

 

Si tiene alguna pregunta, comuníquese con la oficina al 209-290-0511.

 

 

Atentamente,

 

carolyn maderas

Director ejecutivo, Centro de aprendizaje Tracy

TLC Charter Chatter – Feb 27th 2022

TLC Charter Chatter

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



A Message from our CEO, Carolyn Woods

Did you know that all three schools adopted a verifiable assessment program this year? The iReady program is on a list of approved academic progress indicators that charter schools can use to support data for academic growth in the charter renewal process. As required in Assembly Bill 1505, verified data is used in the charter school renewal process for schools in the low and middle performance categories. These charter schools must use verified data to show measurable increases in academic achievement or strong postsecondary outcomes. Increases in academic achievement are defined as showing one-year’s progress for each year in school. Primary, Discovery and Millennium all fall under the “middle” performance category, along with the majority of charter schools in California. We will be ready with data in hand when it comes time to renew our charters!

REMINDER: Friday, March 4th is an early release day. Primary students will be dismissed at 11 AM, Discovery and Millennium will be dismissed at 11:30 AM.

________________________________________________________

Parents, we need your help! Please send your children to school with their lunch. When lunches are dropped off midday, it puts an added burden on the office staff and causes unnecessary interruptions in the classroom. Food delivery services such as Door Dash, Uber Eats, and Postmates are not allowed, along with fast food, soda or sugary drinks. We appreciate your cooperation!

Learning Plan Meetings with Current 9th-11th Grade Students

Click on this link to see how to view your student’s anticipated classes:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=osxvuaXa_6o

 

Mrs. Woods and the Millennium High School Counselors are in the process of meeting with each student in grades 9-11 to plan classes for Fast Track (our mandatory summer school program) and the following school year. We do this by reviewing the student’s transcript with them and discussing the student’s goals and preferences. The anticipated classes are entered in the student’s Academic Plan in Aeries – this is viewable by parent and student in Aeries after logging in and clicking “Classes”, then “Academic Plan”. Please see the attached video for instructions.

***Please Note: Our top priority in meeting with students is to ensure a plan for them to meet all MHS graduation requirements, and their core academic classes are most important. Those who need elective credits provide us with their top choice(s), and we will try to place them accordingly after the master schedule is created, but their top choice elective(s) are not guaranteed. Additionally, at this time we do not know which teachers will teach which classes, or what periods they will be offered. This means we do not know what the start time will be for students who have less than 7 classes (juniors and seniors only). Our first step in creating the master schedule is to find out how many students need each class, and we are very glad to have the opportunity to do so through having individual conversations with each of our students.***

Fast Track schedules and further details will be mailed home during the month of April. Schedules for the 2022-2023 school year will be distributed near the end of Fast Track.

Thank you for your support in this process!

A Message from our CEO, Carolyn Woods

Wonderful things are happening all around campus! Here are just a few highlights:

  • This year MHS basketball parents, players, and fans were treated to half-time and side-line performances by our first-ever Discovery Cheer Club! The DCS Cheer Club is one of many new clubs we started this year in Discovery. We look forward to more performances to come!
  • The academic competition teams at Millennium all achieved major successes this year. Led by Mr. Lamanna, the Academic Pentathlon team finished 6th in the county and scored more highly than any other high school in Tracy. The team also took 2nd place in the Division I Super Quiz. Way to go!!!
  • The Mother-Son Dance was not only a successful fundraiser for TLC, it was also a night to remember for so many of our parents and students. Thank you, Coach KV (and all staff who volunteered), for the time and effort you put into planning such a great event!

We look forward to creating many more memorable experiences for all of our students this year.

Enjoy the 3-day weekend!

Mrs. Woods

Learning Plan Meetings with Current 9th-11th Grade Students

Click on this link to see how to view your student’s anticipated classes:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=osxvuaXa_6o

 

 

Mrs. Woods and the Millennium High School Counselors are in the process of meeting with each student in grades 9-11 to plan classes for Fast Track (our mandatory summer school program) and the following school year. We do this by reviewing the student’s transcript with them and discussing the student’s goals and preferences. The anticipated classes are entered in the student’s Academic Plan in Aeries – this is viewable by parent and student in Aeries after logging in and clicking “Classes”, then “Academic Plan”. Please see the attached video for instructions.

 

 

***Please Note: Our top priority in meeting with students is to ensure a plan for them to meet all MHS graduation requirements, and their core academic classes are most important. Those who need elective credits provide us with their top choice(s), and we will try to place them accordingly after the master schedule is created, but their top choice elective(s) are not guaranteed. Additionally, at this time we do not know which teachers will teach which classes, or what periods they will be offered. This means we do not know what the start time will be for students who have less than 7 classes (juniors and seniors only). Our first step in creating the master schedule is to find out how many students need each class, and we are very glad to have the opportunity to do so through having individual conversations with each of our students.***

 

 

Fast Track schedules and further details will be mailed home during the month of April. Schedules for the 2022-2023 school year will be distributed near the end of Fast Track.

Thank you for your support in this process!

ATHLETICS

Congratulations yet again to Lady Falcons Soccer! On Friday the girls entered the 1st round of playoffs as a #4 seed against the #5 seed, Golden Sierra. The Lady Falcons took a 1-0 lead before the half, but Golden Sierra answered back about 20 minutes into the second half. Despite a stadium blackout in the final 5 minutes of play, causing a game delay, the ladies were able to put one in the back of the net with just under a minute to play, taking a 2-1 lead, and the victory! The team will head out to the Grape Bowl on Wednesday 2/16 for round 2 against #1 seeded Holt Academy of Lodi (Battle of the CCAA Co-Champions!) Tickets to the game can be purchased through GoFan.

SPED SPOTLIGHT:

This week we want to put a spotlight on Social Emotional Learning. Whether it’s called “social and emotional learning” or “emotional intelligence,” most people understand that it is critical to pay attention to the development of the whole young person, including character education. Parents have a dual role to play in raising a self-aware, respectful child who knows how to manage his or her emotions, make responsible decisions, and resolve conflicts nonviolently.

Thank you for supporting our club and let me know if you have any questions about how you can purchase busts, tickets, or candy grams!

  4. Synonyms and antonyms,
  5. Following directions,
  6. Main idea, Story comprehension and retell,
  7. Verbs,

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!

Sincerely,

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.

SPED SPOTLIGHT:

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.
