Dear Parents,
 
Yesterday I attended the funeral of one of my dear friends. Disappointingly, I returned to school today with a long note from the substitute outlining off-task, disrespectful, and inappropriate behavior. Further, in looking at their work completion (and lack thereof), it was clear a good majority of students ignored the verbal and written instructions (written both on the white board and in Google Classroom) and chose to goof off instead. In my thirteen years of teaching at Huntington, I have never had this issue.
 
Please remind your child that they are better than this. Don't be the parent who thinks that their child would never act this way, or worse, that their child would never fib to them. They will fib to you to stay out of trouble! They are middle schoolers! This doesn't make them bad kids. It makes them age-appropriate (or slightly less than that in this instance). All I'm asking is that you remind them that it is an admirable character trait to be your best self in all situations! Or, at the very least, to act according to our school motto: "Be where you're supposed to be. Do what you're supposed to do!"
 
Thank you for your support!

Welcome to HMS!

What a great first day!!!

Although students were attentive listeners, they may come home feeling overwhelmed with the amount of information provided today. Please reassure your child that teachers will review procedures repeatedly over the next few weeks. Encourage your child to ask questions and seek help when needed. My goal is for all students to feel safe and comfortable in their new learning environment. I am already impressed with this group of 6th graders, and I know it will be a rewarding, positive, and successful year for all!
 
Also, many thanks to those families who provided tissue paper and disinfectant wipes for our classroom! We appreciate your donations very much! :)
