Kindergarten Registration

Kindergarten registration packets will be available in the school office beginning March 2.  Registration for kindergarten will be April 13-May 8.  Registration will resume the week of June 1-5.  Children must turn 5 years old on or before September 5, 2015 to enroll in kindergarten.

SARC

All public schools are required to prepare and distribute a SARC (School Accountability Report Card). The purpose of the report card is to provide parents and the community with important information about each public school. A SARC can be an effective way for a school to report on its progress in achieving goals. The public may also use a SARC to evaluate and compare schools on a variety of indicators.  SARCs are prepared with information from the previous school year.  The 2013-14 SARCs can be obtained from the school website and district website at https://www.tracy.k12.ca.us/AboutTUSD/SitePages/SARC.aspx.   Paper copies will be made available, upon request.

Yearbooks

It's time to pre-order your copy of Central's 2014-2015 yearbooks.  Yearbooks are on sale now for $20.

Morning Drop Off

Kindergarteners will be dropped off at the kindergarten gate located on Parker Avenue. Grades 1-5 should be dropped off at the front door or in the car lane no earlier than 8 a.m.

 PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

 
Dear Central Parents,
     
Spring is finally in the air! It has been wonderful seeing parents and students walking to and from school, and watching the students enjoy recess outside. It is also nice to see parents, students and teachers all talking together after school in the warm weather.
Spring also means state testing for our third, fourth and fifth graders. We will start testing after Spring Break. The students will be tested on the English Language Arts and Math Common Core State Standards. Fifth graders are also tested on Science. We feel the students are prepared and will work with them to be sure they work hard, try their best and stay focused during the tests. During this time please be sure your child gets plenty of rest, exercise and eats well as studies show this can help students focus and do their best. We try to keep our students calm as we do not want them stressed over the testing. Please talk with your child and remind them to try hard but not stress out.
We will begin to look at placement of students into classrooms for next year right after Spring Break.  We welcome input from parents on the special needs and learning styles of their children and we accept requests which identify these special needs and learning styles rather than requests for specific teachers.  Please note that placement forms with requests for specific teachers will not be used for placement.  There are several criteria that are used for placing students and balancing classes:  special needs, academic progress, behavior concerns, boy/girl ratios, and the general mix of students.  The placement forms are helpful in determining the best placement for children and we will make every effort to accommodate parent requests when possible.  Placement forms are available in the office and must be turned in by Friday, May 1.   
Sincerely,
Nancy Morgan Link

¡La primavera está finalmente en el aire! Ha sido maravilloso ver a los padres y estudiantes que caminan a la escuela, y observar a los estudiantes disfrutar de recreo afuera. También es agradable ver a los padres, estudiantes y maestros hablando todos juntos después de la escuela en el clima cálido.
La primavera también significa exámenes estatales para nuestros alumnos de tercero, cuarto y quinto grado. Vamos a empezar las pruebas después de las vacaciones de primavera. Los estudiantes serán evaluados en los Estándares Estatales Comunes de lengua y literatura y matemáticas. Los estudiantes del quinto grado también tendrán  la prueba de ciencia. Creemos que los estudiantes están preparados y trabajaremos con ellos para asegurarnos de que trabajan duro, se esfuerzan al máximo y mantienen la concentración durante las pruebas. Durante este tiempo, por favor asegúrese de que su hijo descanse lo suficiente, haga ejercicio y coma bien ya que los estudios muestran que esto puede ayudar a los estudiantes a concentrarse y hacer un mejor trabajo. Tratamos de mantener nuestros estudiantes calmados, ya que no queremos que se estresen durante la prueba. Por favor, hable con su hijo y recuérdele que debe esforzarse, pero no estresarse.
Vamos a empezar a ver la colocación de los estudiantes en las aulas para el año que viene justo después de las vacaciones de primavera. Damos la bienvenida a las aportaciones de los padres sobre las necesidades especiales y los estilos de aprendizaje de sus hijos y aceptamos solicitudes que identifican estas necesidades especiales y los estilos de aprendizaje en lugar de las solicitudes para maestros  específicos. Tenga en cuenta que las formas de colocación de las solicitudes para maestros específicos no serán utilizadas para la colocación. Son varios los criterios que se utilizan para colocar a los estudiantes y equilibrar las clases: necesidades especiales, progreso académico, problemas de conducta, proporciones de niños/niñas, y la mezcla general de estudiantes. Las formas de colocación son útiles para determinar la mejor ubicación para los niños y vamos a hacer todo lo posible para atender las solicitudes de los padres cuando sea posible. Los formularios de inscripción están disponibles en la oficina y deben entregarse antes del viernes 1 de mayo.
