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.

 PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

 

Dear Freiler Parents,

This year has been a very active year with many students doing after school academic and extracurricular activities. Student learning and student well-being is a huge emphasis at Art Freiler School. Currently teachers and students are working hard in classrooms to learn the Content Standards for grades 3rd-8th to prepare for the Smarter Balance tests.
 
TESTING  IS  Here!!!
Smarter Balance on-line testing began February 25 and will go until May 27th. Each class has a scheduled testing week. Please mark these dates on your calendar and I request that you not schedule any vacations during these dates. It is extremely important for students to be at school, be ready, and try their best on the tests. Our goal is to have each student reach their highest potential on each test. Our goal is to also continue to meet our Academic Yearly Progress (AYP) goal of increase student achievement in both ELA and math and keep our Academic Performance Index (API) score at a high level, which are still frozen at 831, with a three year average of 835. Results of standardized tests are also used to evaluate a school’s performance and they play a role in students’ advance classes in high school as well. So, it is important to all involved for every child to do well on tests. You can boost your child’s performance on standardized tests by:
     1.      Having good attendance
Teachers cannot teach students who are not in school. There is strong evidence that regular attendance can result in significant test-score gains. Last month our attendance was 93.7% and our goal is 98% or higher each month. During testing time, our goal is 100% attendance and we cannot achieve this goal without parents’ help.
     2.      Be mindful of the testing schedule
Make sure your child is in school every day.
Do not schedule medical appointments during school hours.
Do not take your child out of school for a family trip or activity.
Do not allow your child to be tardy. Have your child get ready the night before so he or she can get to school on time.
Please talk to your children about their classwork and homework. Please make sure they do their homework and turn it in to their teachers on time. Make sure they study for the tests.
 
Good practice makes it perfect. Please ask your child’s teacher what your child should be working on. Many classes are taking practice tests to get familiar with the testing procedures and content.  Sample tests are available online and you may ask your student to take practice tests from http://www.cde.ca.gov/ and http://www.smarterbalanced.org/
 
Lastly at Art Freiler School safety is our first priority. In order to keep our campus safe at all times, we need to remind students to be nice to each other and follow the school procedures. We realize children make mistakes, we just hope that they learn from them and do not make them again. Our school rules are listed in our district discipline handbook and student agendas to help parents and students understand the school procedures, rules, and consequences.
 
Congratulations to all our Character Counts Awards & Honor Roll Students for the 2nd trimester!!!!! Keep shining stars!!!!!!!!!!

Karen Alcorn, Principal
