           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.
  
Thanks for Visiting

Intra-District Transfer Information and Deadlines
For More Information Visit Student Services
To:     Tracy Unified School District Community Members
From: Dr. Brian Stephens, Superintendent
Date:  October 1, 2017
RE:     Intradistrict Transfers (BP 5116.1 and AR 5116.1)
 
Dear TUSD community members. The Governing Board desires to provide enrollment options that meet the diverse needs and interests of district students and parents/guardians, while also maximizing the efficient use of district facilities (BP 5116.1). The Board of Trustees also desires to provide options for schools of choice dependent upon space available. The parents/guardians of any student who resides within district boundaries may apply to enroll their child in any district school, regardless of the location of residence within the district. (Education Code 35160.5).
 
In that effort this letter provides a list of schools which may have space available for additional students for the 2018-2019 school year. A list of those schools and open enrollment applications shall be available at each school site, the district office and on the district’s website.
 
Schools that may have space available for additional students for the 2018-2019 school year include the following:
 
Bohn Elementary         North K-8                  Kimball High
Central Elementary      Monte Vista Middle   West High
Hirsch Elementary       Williams Middle
Jacobson Elementary                         
McKinley Elementary
Southwest Park Elementary
Villalovoz Elementary
 
Please note that open enrollment for intradistrict transfers is between October 15, 2017 and January 15, 2018.
 
Transfers for high school special programs are included in the above timeline. Although Tracy High School is not on the list for open enrollment, applications for special programs will still be accepted. Any intradistrict transfer requests received from the Academy or Program Coordinator will be processed by the District.
 

 PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

 

Dear Freiler Families,

September marks our first progress reports. The first progress report will be sent home on September 22nd. 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 them if they need it. As the parent, get familiar with the homework expectations, so you can become a team between school and home to assist with your students’ educational success.
 As the year began, students learned the routines and procedures and have gotten to know their teachers and see all their friends from the year before. Each year we focus on academics that support student learning. The continued focus for the 2017-18 school year is on Rigorous Curriculum Design (RCD) English Language Arts (ELA), RCD Math and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).  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 and math, teachers have become curriculum designers to pave the way for the ELA and math standards. Teachers are using Rigorous Curriculum Design (RCD) lesson plans and work collaboratively to design lessons that are standards based using multiple resources other than our standard texts. The new Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) continues to be a focus for this year. We are excited about this approach to science and our teachers have attended training over the last three summers to make this a reality in the classroom. Students are able to think about science in a new way through a scientist’s lens with engaging lessons. We have an online program, Brain Pop- an interactive on-line science focused program to facilitate learning. Freiler also hosts a Science Olympiad Team and Science Family Night that will be coming up in February. Ask your student how science impacts their lives daily and have them share with you their explorations and hands-on opportunities they are receiving in the classroom.
The Shrek play rehearsals are underway and the students are doing a great job learning their lines and artistic dances. This year’s play is sure to be a memorable one! I look forward to seeing the performance in mid-December.
Please check your Parent Connect Aeries account on a regular basis to see your child’s grades and attendance. If you do not have an account please sign up and check in the office for the verification password to access it at http://www.tracy.k12.ca.us/   > click on ABI Parent Portal on the left side. Don’t wait- sign up today! Please also checkout our school Facebook page and our updated school website at https://www.tracy.k12.ca.us/sites/fes/Pages/default.aspx
1st trimester report cards will be sent home on Oct. 23rd at Parent Teacher Conferences.
