Tracey's Weekly Friday Community Meetings

Friday, April 6, 2018

For our weekly Friday community meeting Mrs. Klein's class in room 208 did a short skit representing the letter P in our P.R.I.N.T which means Problem Solving. The P in their skit performed is for problem solving for ourselves. The students in Mrs. Klein's classroom asked Tracey students what they would do to problem solve based on the skits performed.

The band class from West Rocks Middle school came to Tracey on Thursday, April 5th to play music for the 5th grade classes. The band teacher provided information for the 5th grade students interested in joining band for next school year. We enjoyed listening to Superstition by Stevie Wonder, All Blues by Miles Davis, Rock With You, by Michael Jackson and Chameleon by Maynard Ferguson. Tracey students had the opportunity to ask questions and some even tried out to play the drums!

Instructions on how to access the system for your student will be available on your individual school website or on the district website. If you do not know which school your child is assigned to, click here to check your address.

New families to the district should provide contact information to the school where you plan to enroll. After this is completed, an email will be sent to parents containing a link and a brief description of how to register your child.

Please note: parents will still need to supply the original documentation (proof of residency, birth certificate/passport, parent ID, medical forms, etc.) to their schools for verification to complete the registration process. Click here for a complete checklist of documents needed.

Parents who prefer to register at school or do not have internet access may register online at their school via designated Chromebooks. Or, parents may stop by in person at a Kindergarten registration event. Check the district website for dates and locations. Principals will be on hand at these events to answer any questions pertaining to their schools.

Morning Drop-off at Portico

It has been brought to our attention that there are safety concerns regarding parent driving during morning drop-off. Going forward any vehicles dropping off students in front of the portico will not be permitted to park in front of the main door. Any vehicles dropping off students will enter thru the designated path indicated by orange cones. The side entrance to our gym will be open from 8:45-9:05 am. The doors at the portico will remain unlocked until 9:20 am. Students entering the portico should be dropped off and walk on the side of the orange cones closest to the building. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
