Dear Parents:

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year at Hawkins Elementary School! I am especially excited about teaching a wonderful group of students. I am looking forward to meeting my “new parents” personally.  As you know the whole district is going through many changes, one of them being that I will be a dual language 1st grade teaching and your child will become fluent in both English and Spanish!!!

I will be helping your child grow academically, physically, and socially.  I am committed in doing the best to make this an exciting and challenging school year for your child.  I sincerely hope that we can work together and focus on your child’s education. 

I will be communicating with you consistently as changes and information may come up through out the year. I will keep you informed as to what your child is learning through newsletters or via e-mail.  I have great expectations for each of my students and know that they will succeed. 

Your child will be required to do the following, and much more for the upcoming school year:

  • Monday - Thursday HOMEWORK
  • Projects (class and home)
  • Subject notebooks
  • Watch the news and weather
  • Read, Read, Read, the more your child reads, the more he/she learns.

I am anticipating a wonderful year with your child.  Please feel free to contact me if you should have any concerns.  I am anxious to start the new school year!  Thank you for your cooperation and support and for all you do for your child.
