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.
Thanks for Visiting

Karen Alcorn, Principal

Years in Tracy: 14
Principal at Art Freiler Elementary School for seven years 
Family: 3 children- Quinn, Emilee, & Jack
Her motto: “Show, don’t tell”
As the principal of Art Freiler School, I take pride in working alongside staff and parents to bring the best out of my students.

My mornings begin with greeting parents and students who are excited to be here. “I love my job! Kids energize me and make me see the bright side of things.”

While growing up in Michigan, I always knew I wanted to be a teacher. I attended college in Michigan than finished at San Jose State University with a degree in Linguistics and an undergraduate degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other languages (TESOL). My teaching career began in Saratoga at Prospect High School, where I taught English Language Development and English Language classes. While teaching I continued my education and earned my Master’s Degree in Education in 2003.

Upon moving to Tracy, I taught English at West High School before becoming an Assistant Principal at West High for seven years. Then I joined Art Freiler School as the Principal in 2011-2012, where I have enjoyed growing as an educational leader in the Tracy Unified School District.
The teachers here at Art Freiler are so very dedicated to our students’ success. We focus on instructional strategies along with the Common Core standards and we have seen steady increases in our state test scores.
As a team, we are learning so much about how best to help students learn. Teachers are also doing their own homework and pushing themselves as they design new Rigorous Curriculum Design (RCD) lessons that are engaging and relevant to their lives. It is exciting, but change is also a challenge.
Freiler Elementary staff knows how firmly I believe that all of our children can learn and must learn — no excuses! The teachers here are amazing professionals who are doing what they need to do to ensure success for our students.
 Throughout my 20 years in education, I have seen many former students come over, give me a hug and tell me how they are and that I had an impact on their lives. As an educator, I don’t think anything beats that!
As we continue to build the foundation for many students who move on to high school, we at Freiler School can feel proud of the skills and academic foundation they received here as a Freiler Star!
