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.

TLC families, students, staff and community members,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your unwavering support as I navigated my way through my first year as CEO of the Tracy Learning Center schools! This year has not been without its challenges, but I see each hurdle as a learning experience and an opportunity to implement new strategies for improvement. I have been a part of this organization since 2004 and looking back over the years, I have come to appreciate everything that makes us a charter school- from the way we embrace change, to our innovative teaching styles, to our amazing staff who go above and beyond everyday to provide enriching lessons that challenge our students at the appropriate level of intervention. We are a school of choice and I thank all of you who believe in our vision and embrace the Tracy Learning Center schools!

Enjoy your time off, and see you next school year!

Sincerely,

Mrs. Woods

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.

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.

Lunch is ordered the day before it is delivered to class.

The Google Classroom code is SEUNSOU.

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.

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

ATHLETICS

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! There is a meeting for all girls who are interested in joining the volleyball program on TUESDAY June 7th at 2pm. She is also going to coach our Boys Varsity Volleyball Team next Spring. We are very excited to have her on board!

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

 


A Message from our CEO, Carolyn Woods

Parents, students, family, and staff,

As a follow-up to last week’s message, I am happy to report that the new door system has been installed thanks to the swift action of our technology and custodial teams. This will require visitors to “buzz” in before entering the campus. We also now have a monitor in the front office that will display the security camera footage around campus so that the office staff can monitor activity throughout the day.

I appreciate the feedback received regarding the new security measures we are putting in place. Many of these security upgrades have been planned for some time and we continue to work with our staff to ensure our campus is as safe as possible.  I hope everyone can agree that to small inconvenience the measures create is worth keeping our staff and students safe.

 

 


May COVID-19 Update:

 

Case counts by school

PCS- 7

DCS- 18

MHS- 12

According to the K-12 School Guidance, masks are not required, however, the CDPH still strongly recommends that all persons wear masks in indoor settings.

Millennium High School

 

ATHLETICS

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! There is a meeting for all girls who are interested in joining the volleyball program on TUESDAY June 7th at 2pm. She is also going to coach our Boys Varsity Volleyball Team next Spring. We are very excited to have her on board!

Currently hiring for the following coaching positions:

FALL 2022 Openings (July-Oct/Nov):

*Head Coaches- JV, Frosh Girls Volleyball:

https://www.edjoin.org/Home/DistrictJobPosting/1389850

Monday, June 6th Millennium High is hosting sports physicals! We will take walk-ups on Monday, BUT you must have the signed permission form and the $20 fee with you. Please make out checks to Dr. Andy Su, who along with his team will be administering these sports physicals for us.

ALL Millennium Athletes must have a valid sports physical each year to participate in sports – these sports physicals on June 6th will allow athletes to compete in all three seasons of Sport in the 2022-2023 school year!

Incoming Freshmen who have registered need to be at the Gym at 1 pm

10th graders arrive at 2 pm

11th graders arrive at 3 pm

The $20 fee is paying Dr. Su for his time and effort and is similar to the co-pay you would pay your family doctor or Kaiser. Again, if you decide to write a check, please make it out directly to Dr. Andy Su.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me – your new Athletic Director, Drew Reyes at areyes@tracylc.net

Get your sports physical done, and register on https://www.athleticclearance.com/

In other sports news, Girls and Boys Basketball are having some summer open gyms – Contact your coaches and check remind for more details – if you email me – areyes@tracylc.net – I can tell you how to connect with Coach Joe Reyes, our girls Varsity Basketball Coach, and Coach KV, our Varsity Girls Associate Head Coach. Her email is kvigil@tracylc.net – The Girls just played their first summer league games at Modesto Junior College on Thursday night – Coach Reyes is excited about the enthusiasm they displayed, and their potential for improvement – he even told me that the MJC Girls Coach was very interested in a couple of girls that he saw play out there – Keep up the good work Ladies!

Did you know that we will have a brand new Cross Country Coach? Coach Mike Copass has taken the whistle and clipboard from Coach Sheree Parker, who will be busy watching her son Jadyn playing football at UCLA this fall. Coach Copass is ready to lead our extremely successful Cross Country program this fall. Interested in getting in the best shape of your life? Want to make friends and learn from the smartest man in the city of Tracy? Email Coach Copass at mcopass@tracylc.net for more information.

The BEST WAY to start getting involved in MHS Athletics is to go to our website – https://mhsfalcons.com You will find a ton of information there, and I will be working to update the website over the next few weeks. The next best way is to join the REMIND of the team that you are interested in joining – Here are a couple to get you started. MHS

FOOTBALL – @lfsk2014 – Head Coach – Jamani Woods

MHS BASEBALL – @falconsmhs – Head Coach – Drew Reyes

Each team will have their own REMIND account – I will share more each week, so stay tuned – I recommend that you only join teams that you are directly connected with or you may get A LOT of messages!

REMIND is the communication app that the Millennium High School Athletic Program uses. All coaches use it to communicate to players and parents. You can download the free app, or you can text the codes above to the number 81010 – every time a message is sent, you will get a text message.

 

 



 

 

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.

Spring 2022 College Early Start $100 Scholarship Request Form Open!

Students who earned a B (not a B-) or higher in their Spring 2022 Delta College class(es) may now submit their $100 scholarship request form. They must include proof of the grade(s) earned from their MyDelta account.

TLC Charter Chatter 5/30/22 –

TLC Charter Chatter

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

 

 

A Message from our CEO, Carolyn Woods

Parents, students, family, and staff,

I, along with all of you, was so disheartened to hear about the tragedy at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas this week. To see the faces of those innocent children whose lives were taken in such a horrific way breaks my heart. I grieve for the families of those precious children, for the families of the teachers who were lost, and for the entire community who I know is in deep mourning. It was an unspeakable act of violence.

At times like these, it gives us cause to come together as a school and reexamine our own safety protocols. We have a safety committee that meets regularly and who have already planned to implement new safety procedures on campus, such as requiring all students and staff to wear their ID badge at all times, requiring visitors to wear a clearly visible, unique badge, and to have all volunteers go through a more detailed application process, but even with all of the measures we have in place, we can do more.

Although we have a closed campus, meaning all gates remain closed at all times during school hours, the doors to the front office are unlocked and open- we can and will make them more secure. We are going to install a system that will allow the front office to buzz visitors in, adding a level of security that we have not previously had.

We take campus safety very seriously and do all we can to ensure a safe environment for our students.

Thank you for all of your support this year. Have a happy Memorial Day!

Mrs. Woods
