Announcements and Events
IMPORTANT SAFETY MESSAGE: Tracy Unified School District is aware of and is monitoring recent social media posts and rumors warning that clowns will show up at schools threatening to do harm.  Officer Kami Ysit of Tracy Police Department has confirmed that there have been no reported threats to the Tracy area at this time, however she encourages anyone to report all suspicious people or circumstances to the Tracy Police Department.
While no threats have been received in the Tracy area, we are working with local law enforcement and continue to monitor activity closely. These types of behaviors and claims are disruptive to a school’s learning environment and the broader community. We encourage parents to speak with their students about the risks and consequences for any potential involvement in these social media posts.
We want to remind our families that threats are not jokes. Threats are considered a felony, a crime punishable by imprisonment. In addition to criminal punishment, students who make false threats will be referred for expulsion from school. Also, school days lost due to closures from school threats may be required to be added to the end of the school year.
In the event of any suspicious activity, in or around a school site, please contact the Tracy Police Department at (209) 831-6550. The safety of our students and staff is our top priority. Thank you for helping us keep our schools and our community safe.                                                                                                                                     
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 This site has great resources for parents. 
Thanks for Visiting
Thank you for visiting Art Freiler School.  Please check in with the office when you arrive to obtain a visitor's badge.

Dear Freiler Families,

As we enter October, our first progress reports went home and we are in high gear with academics and hands-on Common Core student projects that brings learning to life for our Freiler stars!!  Please take the time to review your student’s progress report with them. Talk to them about how they are doing, what they need to work on, and how to assist them if they need it.
 As our staff has learned more about Common Core, your student is experiencing a new approach to learning. I invite you to visit the California Department of Education website to find out more about it as we will test again for the second time this year using Smarter Balance Assessments, which are all on-line. We also have our new Rigorous Curriculum Design (RCD) math units underway for K-8 in conjunction with My Math k-5 and 6th-8th Digits that supports Common Core. We also have Rigorous Curriculum Design Teams (RCD) for ELA units, which have been underway since last year, but are going through modifications and updates as we dive deeper into the standards.  Report cards will be sent home on Oct. 17th at Parent Teacher Conferences.
Educating students is a partnership between the school and families. You can help us by making sure your child comes to school prepared every day and has a quiet place to do their homework in the afternoon and evenings.  Be sure to check their agendas daily and to go over the homework which is due the next day. Most importantly, stay connected to what they are doing in school- don’t wait until progress reports or report cards to know how they are doing. Talk to your student and ask them what they are doing in school on a daily basis. This relationship between home and school will be a great way to instill the importance of an education.
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   > 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
Mary Poppins play rehearsals are underway and the students are doing a great job learning their lines and dances. I look forward to seeing the performance. October is also Anti-Bullying month along with Red Ribbon Week where we will be doing a lot of activities that focus on how to prevent bullying in our school and promoting a drug free campaign of, “Say No to Drugs and Alcohol Abuse.” And our 5th grade DARE program graduation is on Oct. 27th at 6:30PM.  Parent Teacher Conferences are fast approaching and will be held the week of Monday, October 17th. Please look for more information about that from your child’s teacher and on the monthly calendar of events. We will end the month with our annual Halloween Parade on Monday, Oct. 31th, which is also an early release day.  Please join us for the fun filled day of a parade and a Thriller performance by our talented middle school students.
Thank you,
Karen Alcorn, Principal
