Due:

Dear Parents,
 
As your child may tell you tonight, my car was broken into last week and my grade book, the Ch. 17 Social Studies tests, and an informative written response (quiz) were all taken (along with my tote bag and favorite lime green raincoat -- which I'm assuming is what attracted the thief to my tote). I am especially sorry the written responses were taken as based on those that I did have time to assess, the students did a fabulous job explaining the similarities between Ashoka's edicts and our Constitution's preamble. I'd love for them to share their knowledge with you.
 
Therefore, for tonight's homework, your child will explain the connection orally to you (it should not take more than 1- 2 minutes to explain). Please praise them on their efforts! Please also sign the blue sheet acknowledging that they completed this oral assignment! I will not be retesting them for Ch. 17 nor make them rewrite the written responses.
 
Many thanks for your support!
 
Mrs. Moffat

Dear Parents and Students,
 
Welcome to HMS! What a great first two days! Although all students have been attentive listeners to date, your child may come home feeling overwhelmed with the amount of information provided. Please reassure your child that we will review procedures repeatedly. Encourage your child to ask questions and seek help directly from me when needed. My goal is for all students to feel safe and comfortable with 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!
