Freiler Staff Parent Association Meetings
Please join us for our FSPA monthly meetings at 6:30 p.m. on the second Wednesday of the month. All parents are welcome to come!
Freiler Stars Attendance Banners
Please make sure your students come to school each day and on time. Consider this: A student who arrives to school late each day by 3 minutes misses over 500 minutes of instruction each year. That is the equivalent of 9 hours of missed instruction.
Students cannot learn if they are not in school. Students with high rates of absenteeism have a harder time getting their work done and often end up scoring poorly on assessments. Please help our students get to school on time- It does make a difference!
Each class has an attendance banner that is filled in each day when they have perfect attendance. When the banner is complete , students receive a recognition treat.
Parents please call the office whenever your student is absent at (209) 830-3309.
Common Core State Standards
The Common Core is changing the way we teach our students, and changing the types of work our students are doing.
To find out more about the Common Core, visit the TUSD Common Core Information Page.
Another great common core website is www.commoncoreworks.org. This site has great resources for parents.

CALIFORNIA ASSESSMENT OF STUDENT PERFORMANCE AND PROGRESS (CAASPP)
The results of the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments in English language arts/literacy and mathematics, part of the state’s California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP), are scheduled to be released later this month (September 2015). Students in grades 3-8 and grade 11 across the state took this test last spring. It was the first statewide administration of this new test. For more information about the assessments and the score reports that will be mailed home for all students who took the test, CLICK HERE

Dear Freiler Parents,
September marks the time when our first progress reports go home in Grades 4-8. This is the perfect time to review your student's progress report with them. Talk to them about how they are doing and how to assist if needed. As the parent, get familiar with the homework expectations so you can become a team between school and home to assist with your students' eductional success.
Each year we focus on academics that support student learning. The focus for the 2015-2016 school year is on English Language Arts (ELA) and Science. Teachers incorporate Common Core State Standards (CCSS) into their lessons on a daily basis and are using them as a tool in the classroom to prepare for our online state testing. As we focus on ELA, teachers have become curriculum designers to pave the way for the ELA standards. The new Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are another focus for this year. We are excited about this new approach to science.
We will have several science experiences this year such as TOPS - Teaching Opportunities Partnering with Schools, where a retired scientist will assist teachers and students in exploring science. We also have new programs such as Science A-Z, Mad Science, an after school program, and Brain Pop - an interactive online science focused program. We also have two Science Olympiad teams and Science Family Night that will be held in February. Ask your child how science impacts their lives daily and have them share with you their explorations and hands-on opportunities they are receiving in the classroom.
