Looking forward to Field Day at Tracy!. Every child was able to tie dye their very own t-shirt thanks to our art teacher, Melissa Epps. This was quite a colorful project as you can see!

Value of the Month: Cooperation

Your family is the most important “team” that you will ever work with!

To be successful everyone in the family needs to:

• Respect each other’s space and belongings
• Listen to each other
• Do chores at the right time and with a good attitude
• Learn how to work out problems without fighting
• Communicate well so that everyone knows what is happening
• Spend time together as a family
• Celebrate each other’s successes
• Support each other through sad times
• Learn to share

Did You Know?

The routine of the school day is important for students. They know the main purpose for being in school is to learn and that routines are in place precisely to help them focus on that learning. When students are repeatedly tardy, these routines are disrupted. Arriving after 8:15 AM can throw off their whole morning or even their day, especially if being late made the trip to school stressful.

If getting to school by 8:15 AM is a challenge for your family, you will need to make changes to your morning schedule at home in order to get to school on time. During the winter, students take longer to get ready because of coats, boots and hats. Setting your alarm for 15 minutes earlier could be all that is needed to ensure students are here to meet the teacher by 8:15 AM. This adjustment can help ensure that all students have a great start to their day

Welcome To The Tracy Elementary School

Our school is a vibrant, active school filled with children who are encouraged daily to do their best as they try new things. With this in mind, we have designed programs that support students in their learning and give them skills necessary to become life-long learners. Our teachers work closely with staff, students, and parents create a positive learning environment for our school.

Every day we recite the Tracy School motto:
Do something nice for somebody else,
just because you can.
This is the basic premise for our entire school. Smile. Be nice. Be positive. And know that we are here for you.

Parents are an integral part of a student’s education. They monitor the child’s homework, attendance, and nightly reading. We strongly encourage parents to meet with teachers and share their thoughts and concerns. Please read the handbook and notices that are sent home. Check your child’s papers that come home and their agenda books. Stay in contact with the school.

As always, I am here if you need me!

Dr. Pattye Griffin

About School Councils
A school council is a representative, school building-based committee composed of the principal, parents, teachers, community members and, at the secondary level, students, required to be established by each school pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 71, Section 59C.

It is important to note the School Council plays an advisory role in assisting the building principal to organize and implement a School Improvement Plan which not only addresses the areas in which the school intends to comply with the requirements of the Educational Reform Act, but also how the school intends to meet those system-wide goals and policies adopted by the school committee. Membership will consist of the principal, teachers, parents, students and community members.
