Super study skills
A child who knows when,
what, and how to study is
more likely to be ready for a
quiz or test—and will learn
more. Help your youngster
get prepared with these tips.
 
When
Your child will learn the
most toward the beginning of
study time, when her mind is
fresh. Have her plan several short study
sessions as soon as her teacher announces
a test. Working at a comfortable pace will
help her remember more and stay motivated.
Tip: Suggest that older children
split study sessions in half, taking a break
to eat a snack or ride a bike.
 
What
Students can make the most of study
time by knowing what will be on a test.
If your youngster isn’t sure what will
be covered, she should ask her teacher.
Before she studies, you might give her a
“pre-test” so she can see what she needs
to focus on. For example, if she correctly
defines 6 of her 20 vocabulary words,
she can spend her time on the other 14.
How
Explain to your child that studying is
more than just reading—she should
“actively” study. That way, she’ll really
learn the material rather than simply
memorizing it for a test. As she goes over
class notes or handouts, she can highlight
important points. While reviewing
her textbook, she might draw pictures or
diagrams. Or she could record herself
asking questions and then play them
back, pausing the recorder to give the
answers. Finally, quiz her on the material
after she has studied.
We need your support making sure students wear their lanyard to school, please remind before they leave home.

 WHAT'S HAPPENING

 
Friendly reminder:
School begins promptly at 8:15. To avoid being tardy, please drop students off between 7:45 and 8:05. Students should not be dropped off before 7:45 as there is no supervision.
Student Lunch Drop-off 
If you are dropping off lunch for a student, we ask that all lunches are in the office by 10:30 a.m. regardless of the grade level and please let your child know ahead of time that you will be bringing a lunch for them.  We have a pen/post-it for you to mark your child’s lunch but we highly recommend that you write your child’s name directly on your child’s lunch bag. We tell all students to pick up their lunch in the cafeteria. We do not call the classrooms to let them know there is a lunch in the office.
 
Almuerzo para estudiantes
Si está dejando el almuerzo para un estudiante, le pedimos que todos los almuerzos estén en la oficina antes de las 10:30 am sin importar el nivel de grado y por favor deje que su hijo sepa de antemano que va a traer un almuerzo para ellos. Tenemos una pluma / post-it para que usted pueda marcar el almuerzo de su hijo, pero le recomendamos que escriba el nombre de su hijo directamente en la bolsa de almuerzo de su hijo. Les decimos a todos los estudiantes que recojan su almuerzo en la cafetería. No llamamos a las aulas para hacerles saber que hay un almuerzo en la oficina.
 
Closed Campus
All visitors must sign in at the office and wear a visitor's sticker. We are a closed campus for the safety of all our students.

Dear North School Families,
Due to the increase of traffic during the dismissal hours we have set these procedures to ensure the safety of our students and staff. When picking up children at dismissal times, please remember the following:
 
1.)    Vehicles are only allowed to park along the curb or in the driveway 10 minutes before release time. For example, Tuesday students are released at 2:10pm, so vehicles will be allowed to wait along the curb or in the drive way starting at 2:00pm, but not before. PLEASE NOTE- If you have students that are in the upper grades you are not to wait in the line until second dismissal 2:30pm.
 
2.)    Pull ALL the way forward when coming through the pick-up line. We are trying to move as many cars through as quickly as possible to keep traffic flowing.
 
3.)    When exiting the driveway, turning right helps the flow of traffic. If you turn right exiting the driveway.  By taking this route YOU will help the flow of traffic and avoid possible accidents.
 
4.)    Obey the rules of the road…we have requested an increase in Tracy Police Department’s presence. It is illegal to cross without using the crosswalk (jaywalking), as well as pulling alongside of a parked vehicle to have a child enter into a vehicle. These are all illegal and major safety hazards.
 
5.)    Parents please wait behind the gate. Students are not allowed to run around and play on the front concrete area, or the grass area.  Please avoid purchasing any items sold by food vendors to avoid increase congestion of traffic/people. 
 
Staff Parking Lot
The staff parking lot is ONLY for staff and requires a permit to park in this area. Any vehicle parked in this area without a permit will be cited or towed by city officials. To ensure safety, our parking lot is monitored by the Tracy Police Department.
 
We appreciate and thank you in advance for following our dismissal procedures. This will help keep everyone safe at North School.

 PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

 

Dear parents,

 
We are happy to see so many students back in school and ready to learn this week. We are at the middle of the school year and we still have a lot to do. I have some important information for you and your students. 
 
We want to remind our North School families that we have two school days off this month. The first is January 16, Dr. Martin Luther King day. Please read our website to learn about the MLK breakfast event. The second no school day this month is January 27. Teachers will have a work day on January 27, but there will be no school on that day. Please plan accordingly.
 
The cold weather is here and it is important to make sure our students are dressed warm and are at school on time. On that same note, we want to reinforce the importance of school attendance. Absences spike every year at this time due to illnesses that come with cold weather. Please remind your students to wash their hands frequently, drink lots of liquids, and avoid being around people who may be sick. The best gift we have for our students is a good education. The best place to get that education is at our school. We also know that attendance is a habit that children should learn early on if they are going to succeed in school and eventually on the job.
 
I encourage all parents and students in 4th-8th grade to keep track of their academic progress on Aeries. Our North School teachers work very hard to keep grades updated so that parents can help support and monitor their children. Please feel free to email your child’s teacher(s), should you have questions or concerns. If you should need the website set up information or your child’s student ID number, a parent will need to come into the office for that assistance. Daily communication of progress, grades, and assignments is key to a child's overall academic success for the school year.
On February 27th, our 8th grade students will have the opportunity to take the PSAT 8/9. This test will offer a practice run for our students who will take this test in high school. We are looking forward to seeing our students do their best and score high!
 
Our North School teachers are working really hard to prepare our students for the California State Testing for 3rd-8th graders and our students are working hard on their academic achievements. All their hard work will show through when we hold the California State Testing for 3rd-8th graders starting at the end of next month.  All testing will be done on computers, which is why it is crucial for students to be practicing their keyboarding skills. Please encourage your child to practice their keyboarding skills, it will benefit them greatly! Also, don’t forget to read 20-30 minutes a day and ask your students questions about what they read. 
We are going to have a great day! Why? Because we choose to make it a great day!

Estimados padres de familia:
Estamos feliz de ver a tantos estudiantes en la escuela y con ganas de aprender esta semana. Estamos en la mitad del año escolar y todavía tenemos mucho por hacer. Tengo información muy importante para usted y sus estudiantes. 
Queremos recordarles a nuestras familias de la escuela North que tenemos dos días de este mes. La primera es el 16 de enero, día de Dr. Martin Luther King. Por favor lea nuestra página web para aprender sobre el evento desayuno de Martin Luther KING. El segundo día sin escuela este mes es el 27 de enero. Los maestros tienen un día de trabajo el 27 de enero, pero no habrá clases ese día. Por favor planee de acuerdo a los días.
El frío está aquí y es importante el asegurarse de que nuestros alumnos estén vestidos con ropa adecuada para el frio y que lleguen en la escuela a tiempo. Hablando de esta misma nota, queremos reforzar la importancia de la asistencia a la escuela. Las ausencias de aumentan cada año en esta época debido a las enfermedades que vienen con tiempo frío. Por favor recuérdeles a sus estudiantes de lavarse las manos con frecuencia, beber muchos líquidos y evitar estar alrededor de personas que pueden estar enfermas. El mejor regalo que tenemos para nuestros estudiantes es una buena educación. El mejor lugar para conseguir que la educación es en nuestra escuela. También sabemos que la asistencia es un hábito que los niños deben aprender desde el principio si van a tener éxito en la escuela y finalmente en el trabajo.
 
Les pido a todos los padres y los estudiantes de 4 º-8 º grado para realizar un seguimiento de su progreso académico en Aeries. Nuestros profesores de la escuela North trabajan arduamente para mantener grados actualizados para que los padres pueden ayudar a apoyar y supervisar a sus hijos. Envié un correo electrónico al maestro de su hijo, si usted tiene preguntas o inquietudes. Si usted necesita establecer una cuenta de Aeries necesitara información o número de identificación de estudiante de su hijo por favor de venir a la oficina para obtener esa información. Comunicación diaria de progreso, calificaciones y asignaciones es clave para el éxito académico en general de un niño para el año escolar.
27 de febrero, nuestros estudiantes de grado 8 º tendrán la oportunidad de tomar el PSAT 8/9. Esta prueba ofrece una práctica a nuestros estudiantes que tendrán esta prueba en la escuela secundaria. Esperamos que nuestros estudiantes tengan un buen puntaje.
Nuestros profesores de la escuela North están trabajando para preparar a nuestros alumnos para la prueba estadal de California para 3 º-8 º grado y nuestros estudiantes están trabajando arduamente y lo vemos en sus logros académicos. Su arduo trabajo se mostrará a través de esta la prueba.  Este examen se llevará acabo a partir de los finales del próximo mes.  Todas las pruebas se hará en las computadoras, razón por la cual es crucial para que los estudiantes practiquen el teclado. Por favor anime a su niño a practicar sus habilidades de teclado, les beneficiará enormemente! Además, no olvide leer 20-30 minutos al día y pregúntele a los estudiantes sobre lo que leen. 
¡Vamos a tener un gran día! ¿Por qué? Porque queremos que sea un gran día!
