Due:

 
Dear Parents and Students,
 
Welcome to HMS!  What a great start we've had!  Although students have been attentive listeners, your child may come home feeling overwhelmed with the amount of information given to them over the last two days.  Please reassure your student that we will review procedures repeatedly over the next few weeks.  Encourage them 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!
