To our MHS class of 2020; this video is our little memento for you. Our MHS counseling and staff want to thank you for your hard work and dedication at MHS. We wish you all the best in your future endeavors. Go Falcons!
It feels that it has been a while since I wrote this message. It has been a busy time. High school has completed the school year and is now in full swing with FASTTRACK. It is a lot of work for both students and staff but we all seem to be settling in and getting it done.
The Primary and Discovery staff continue on with distance learning far beyond any school around. I am so pleased with what we are offering.
We are in the planning stages of converting our special education program away from the Tracy unified District to another SELPA that caters to charter schools. The transition will take some work, but we are convinced we will be able to provide better services as a lower cost. Special education parents will be notified of the change soon.
We continue to plan to reopen on August 3. We are not certain what guidelines will be in place by then, but we have demonstrated our flexibility and we will be ready.
The graduation of our seniors was one to be proud of. We have received many compliments. Hats off to the staff that helped work so hard to make it all come together. We are very pleased with what we did.
Sadly,the budget for next year is devastating and will hurt the income of the staff in order to keep all our services and staff in place. The district is cutting staff by almost 100 people. We are maintaining our staff but each of us will have a cut in salary. Don’t worry, the staff is so dedicated, they will continue to work as hard as they do now even for less income. That is just how they are. As the CEO, however, it was a sad decision to make.

Mom and Dad
Brennan! I will miss you SOOO MUCH when you go off to high school! I will miss our conversations, our social studies discussions, and just watching you and your friends be silly! You will do awesome in high school!
Brennan is an intelligent student, gifted artist, clever writer, and compelling actor. He’s quick to jump on any challenge, first to volunteer ideas, and through his dedication and enthusiasm for new concepts, he won weekly art participation challenges more often than any other student! I have no doubt he will flourish in high school.
During this pandemic, Joshua finds creative ways to make use of his time. He takes the initiative to help out in the kitchen, assists in meal preparation and clean up. He enjoys assisting his sister bake cookies and bread. Even with all the carbs and delicious food in front of him, he tries to resist the temptation. He had lost at least 10 pounds and is on his journey to lose more.
I’m proud of you Baba!!!
This year, Josh has really come out of his shell in my classroom, and I have been so excited to watch him test out his jokes and sense of humor on his classmates. He is also incredibly bright, and without a doubt, one of the hardest working students I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. Congratulations, Josh! I’ll miss the best line leader at Discovery!
He is a funny, charming student who is entertaining and kind. I have had the pleasure of teaching him almost 2 years and having amazing banter with him in class. I wish him well in all he does and I hope he never changes his witty personality!
I will never forget Shahnoor the first week of school falling asleep in my class, from this week on I knew I could rely on him to tell me if my lessons were boring or not. Shahnoor has grown into an incredibly bright student with a personality that could make the whole class smile and laugh. Thank you for bringing me such joy this year! Congrats!!
As my first year teaching at Discovery, Shavez has brought a smile to my face every day! His playful attitude has brought a smile to everyone in the school! Don’t forget to study and ask questions! Congrats on your next journey to high school!
You have been one of the few that have challenged me in a variety of ways this year. You are so intelligent and your willingness to question and want to better understand is something I hope you never lose. You have so many talents and I look forward to hearing all you do and accomplish in the next four years. Congratulations on Promotion! Way to go!!
Aaron is a very bright student who always tries his best in my class. He is funny and intelligent all in one. He is an amusing and respectful young man who always participates and keeps us laughing! I wish him the best in HS and in life. I will miss you child!
Angel, You did it! I am proud, you worked hard. You are a gentleman, very respectful, never talked back and took the ONE -5 I gave you and apologized. I will forever remember you as “Jose”, don’t know why, lol you are a smart kid, keep it up! Good luck in high school!
Angel! I still remember your first year in DCS! I was beyond happy and proud to be your Bengal Den Leader! You were, and still are, one of the most spirited students I have had. You have so much respect with those around you and others should be more like you! Good luck in high school!

Catelyn, you have grown into such a young, beautiful person. I have seen you grow so much these past four years and you truly have come out of your shell! You are unique, with a wonderful sense of fashion! I will truly miss teaching you.
We are so proud of the beautiful, strong, and well-rounded young lady you’ve become. Throughout the years, we have watched you blossom and break out of your shell into the confident, bright, responsible, and hard-working person you are. You have been able to balance academics, sports, music, community, and family, giving 100% of yourself in all you do.

Congratulations on your promotion!
We love you so much,
Dad, Mom, Jaden, and Julian
Joelle is a silent assassin, in the best possible way. She is very quiet, but behind that silent exterior is a tremendous amount of depth. She may not always volunteer an answer, but you can bet she has it. Joelle, you continue to impress me. I wish you all the best in high school!
To use Mrs. Cerezo’s words, Joelle really is a silent assassin! She is one of my hardest working students and goes above and beyond in anything she is tasked. Not only that, she is the sweetest to her friends and the loyal friend we all wish we have. I have been lucky to teach her these past four years and watch her grow into the social butterfly she is now! Good luck in high school!
Tyson we are so proud of you, and all that you have accomplished in school and outside of school, you are so smart, caring and loving and you amaze us with your generosity and thoughtfulness daily.

Love Mom, Dad, Maxx, Devon & Maxxwell
I want to thank Tyson for the leadership, kindness, and athleticism he brought to PE day in and day out. He is truly a fine young man and I was blessed to have him as a student. I wish Tyson all the best in his future endeavors as he moves on to high school. Good luck buddy, Coach will be watching your stats!
Tyson Roberts has a smile that would charm a snake charmer. He has a quick wit and an amazing sense of humor. Whatever Tyson wants to do he will do well and succeed. I am expecting to hear great things from him in the future.
Congratulations on your 2020 Promotion. It will be memorable!
Brook has really come into her own as an 8th grader- she has grown both academically and socially and I have been so impressed by her in the classroom. It has been a joy to watch Brook evolve over the last two years. You will go on to do amazing things Brook! Good luck in high school!
Brook has been one of the best students a teacher could ever ask for. She shows interest and enthusiasm for everything we do in class, and no matter what assignment or project comes her way, she gives 100% of her best effort. I will miss her happy smile in my class! Congratulations, Brook!
Nico! My little boy!! We are so proud of you and the little man you are becoming. Words can’t describe how proud and blessed we are to have such an amazing son.

I know that you will go wherever you desire and that you are your only limit. Love you and can’t wait to see your new adventure in High School
Mom& Dad, Uli & Cami
Nico has grown as an individual this year, from being quiet to an intelligent and outspoken young man. I am proud that I was able to have him in my class and see him grow. He is so intelligent there is not much to say, but if you apply yourself there is not much you won’t be able to do.
AKA Bougie Boy! You have been such a joy to have in class this year and although the year did not end how anyone thought, you still continue to thrive. You are smart, athletic, and funny. I know that high school will open many wonderful doors for you in academics and athletics. Keep up the good work and congratulations!
I have had her now for almost 2 school years and I know her to be a very quiet well-behaved child in the class. She knows her Spanish for sure! She always does amazing work and puts in a lot of effort. She also consistently participates in class which is wonderful! Great student! I wish you well in HS and beyond!
I do not think I have ever met a student like you. You do not give up and that is admirable. You work so hard and that will always pay off. I am so proud of you and all the energy you have put into being successful in Geometry this year. I know you will do great things in high school and in band. Congrats of Promotion!
Joshua’s curiosity and analytical thoughtfulness by many accounts is the true manifestation of Tracy Learning Center’s principles’. Watching you grow up at home and TLC to be a young man is the greatest gift Mom, Dad, Big Sis Jan and Grammar could ever ask for, we are so proud of your achievement!! Congratulations Big Josh!!
Josh Williams has been an outstanding student here at Discovery for the last four years. His competitiveness with a touch of class of positive sportsmanship and reassurance to his classmates is like no other! He is always the first one to shake everyone’s hand after a game and always has a positive attitude win or loss! Josh also has a great sense of humor, and the smile to go with it! 🙂 Josh will truly be missed by all! Best of Luck in High School Mr. Williams as I’m sure you’ll accomplish everything you wish to in life and more!!!!

I was so excited to see Alex come out of his shell this year as an 8th grader. His humor and staring contests were the highlight of class, and his confidence during projects and presentations made them some of the most entertaining our class has ever seen. It won’t be the same without him next year. Congratulations, Alex!
Alex! I have watched you grow with so much confidence these last four years! Mom would always talk about how you were always the funny one at home, making your siblings and parents constantly laugh, and I am happy I was finally able to see that side of you this year. Good luck in High School!
Gwen, Congratulations on your 8th grade promotion! I am extremely proud of the young lady that you have become. You’ve shown such determination, maturity, and adaptability through the last few years. You continue to exceed all expectations, including the ones you place on yourself. Keeping your grades up while having such a busy life is challenging and you seem to handle it with such ease. I know you will continue to succeed just as well, if not more, in high school and beyond. I love you so very much!
Love, Mom…and Jake 🙂
Gwen is a quiet, but determined student. She is kind, compassionate, and very academically driven. I feel very lucky to have taught her these last two years. She has worked very hard to be a stellar student and it is absolutely paying off! Excellent work Gwen!
Gwen, Gwen, Gwen. I am SO going to miss you next year!! You are truly the sweetest, most kind person I have met and I am excited to see what paths in life you take in the future. I am going to miss your random, silent giggles in class! Gwen, you put your heart in EVERYTHING. From studying for social studies, to Pentathlon, to getting your grade up in Humanities! This spirit in you is admired and appreciated by all your teachers. I am sad we cannot end the school year normally after four years of being taught social studies from me, but I am happy knowing that you will do amazing in high school and beyond! Continue on silently giggling in life!
It wasn’t always easy, but you did it! You can do whatever you put your mind to. We are so proud of the young man you are becoming! We love you.

We have also noticed the kindness and respect you treat your classmates with, and that is a sign of maturity that you will be carrying to your next set of challenges, the first of which is High School.
Fly high and soar like a Falcon.
My first year at Discovery has been filled with a lot of laughs, a good portion of them from Matthew. He always has positive energy and a ton of spirit! Yet, through the fun he always will ask a question to try to understand a subject more or make an attempt to give an answer. Congrats on promoting and we wish you the best in high school!

If you paid via cash or check, your check should have arrived by now or is in the mail on the route. Expect to see that in a few days.
PayPal and Square transactions have been processed and are being refunded. Due to the high volume of these refunds, the system is taking longer than their usual 1-2 day turn around. But be assured they have been processed and you will see your refund in your account.
We have currently run into a new issue. For most transactions, the memo did state whether the payment was for Prom or Disney. If you paid via Square or PayPal and did not see this in the memo, there is a chance your payment was not flagged for refund. Please go ahead and fill out the Goggle Form if you paid via Square or Paypal to be sure your refund is completed. As always we thank you for your patience during these times as we are working on creating a system that was nonexistent. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to reach out at email@example.com
Congratulations class of 2020, both Millennium Seniors and Discovery Eighth Graders. You have worked hard and deserve congratulations.
While these are not the traditional celebrations we are used to, adults are working harder than ever to make sure these accomplishments will be wonderful. These celebrations are more difficult than traditional ceremonies and staff are going above and beyond for you.
I will tell you that while traditional is expected, students are always trying to make themselves stand out and make the ceremony different. The celebrations/ceremonies being prepared, while not traditional, will certainly be memorable! Isn’t that what you really want?
CONGRATULATIONS MILLENNIUM AND DISCOVERY FALCONS CLASS OF 2020!
Our Promoting Discovery Falcons
Anthony Van Lehn
Anthony, you have come such a long way from the first day starting at Discovery. Although the beginning of your journey was a tough one, you worked really hard to achieve all your goals. You are on your way to that gold cord! We could not be prouder of how much you have accomplished. With your hard work and determination, you will go far in high school and beyond! We love you!!
Dad and Mae
I am honored to get to talk a little bit about Anthony. I worked with Anthony several times for community service during school time and on Saturdays. He is a bright young man with great leadership attributes in his character. He is willing to do what is asked to better the community of Discovery. His positive attitude spreads to those around him! I am so happy of his accomplishments and know that as he advances in the future he will represent Discovery well. Great job, Anthony, proud of you buddy!!!
Anthony is a student who can always be counted on. He is kind, hardworking, and reliable. In the classroom these are invaluable qualities to have. I can always count on Anthony to lend a hand, to answer a question, and to have a book handy. Keep reading Anthony! Congratulations and all the best in highschool!
It’s been a privilege to have Anthony in class this year. He has grown so much as the year went on and has always shown me the most utmost respect and honesty. I wish him the best as he moves on to high school and to remain focused. Good Luck Anthony!
Our dearest Jaidyn,
We are so proud of the young woman you are becoming. We are amazed by your intelligence, kindness, and love for life. You are wise beyond your years, and we love how you are always pushing yourself to do better no matter the situation or outcome. You are an amazing student, athlete, dancer, sister, and daughter. We know you are going to take on the challenge of high school with the same determination, commitment and persistence you have shown throughout Primary and Discovery! Always feed your spirit with truth and love.
It is our pleasure to watch you grow!
Love, Dad, Mom, Isaiah, Brooklyn, and Bruno!
Jaidyn, you are truly a wonder; you are smart, hilarious, and genuinely kind. This is a rare combination of qualities to come by and because of that you will be so missed at DCS. I have valued being able to watch you grow academically and as an individual. Your wit, ingenuity, and constant giggles have brought so much joy to my LA classroom. I can’t wait to see what you accomplish in high school!
I can remember back in the day when I first met you and your dad. Seeing you grow from Primary to Discovery and now to high school brings a tear to my eye. You have blossomed into such an amazing and athletic young lady! Also the fact you are a Dodger and USC fan just adds to your awesomeness;) I know you will do wonderful things during high school and will continue to grow from there! I wish you the best and have no doubt of the success in your near future!
We are so proud of you, Sis! You have shown us what grit and determination is by maintaining great grades and amazing friendships all while juggling playing competitive soccer, playing the saxophone with the MHS marching band, being a support for your brother and volunteering with youth soccer! You are an amazing young lady! We can’t wait to see what these next four years bring. We love you to the moon, we love you to pieces, we love you SO much! Never doubt, you were born to do great things!
Love, Mom, Dad and RJ

Cynthia, the journey you have been on these past two years hasn’t always been easy. And yet somehow in a world that often overwhelmed you and placed numerous obstacles in your path, you dug down deep and found a fortitude and resilience that kept you moving forward. Remember, go after your dreams and stay humble along the way. We are so proud of you, your accomplishments and admire the young woman you are becoming.
Love, Dad, Kathleen and Carrie
Cynthia is one of the most helpful and caring students I have ever met. In addition to her spectacular grades, she has taken on the special role of Bunny Whisperer in my class, and has gone out of her way time and time again to make sure that our classroom pet bunnies are always cared for. I’ll miss having her in class, but wish her all the best in high school! Congratulations, Cynthia!
Cynthia is a witty and artistic individual. She is a naturally gifted speaker with undeniable presence and persuasive powers. She is a hard working, bright student who is considerate and thoughtful towards others. I have no doubt that she will succeed at anything she puts her mind to!

I had the pleasure of teaching Sadie during her first year in Discovery. She was quiet in the classroom at first but began to open up as the year progressed. I am so impressed to see the student she has now become and wish her all the best in the future. Good luck in high school.
Sadie, I am so proud of who you have become! I have seen you grow and come out of your shell these last three years. Your determination to get things done will push you far in life. Good luck in high school!
Caden, we are proud of your dedication to what your interests are. You are a kind, polite, and helpful young man. You are a great big brother and little brother to your siblings.

Keep your head up as you enter high school and enjoy every moment.

Sam De La Torre
Sam is a joy to teach because his enthusiasm and humor are infectious. He brings levity and wit to every room he’s in and his art always had a unique style that showcased his creative mind.
Sam is a helpful student and quick to volunteer for extra jobs. He’s also a great collaborator and a natural communicator. I will miss having him in my art class!
Smiley Sam, you made it happen! Good luck in your next journey of life and remember nothing is impossible!
