Dear Parents,

Welcome to the 2017-18 school year in Ms. Hess-Tilton's 6th grade classroom!!!  I am very excited to meet my new class and start preparing your child for Middle School.

The first days will be spent getting to know your child and helping them transition comfortably to a new learning environment.  I need your help and partnership to ensure your child is successful.  I will post class information here as well as emailing your directly.  Make sure you are receiving my emails if not email me at jfhesstilton@dcsdk12.org and ask me to add you to my email list.  I will also send home school information and student work on Thursday in Thursday folders.  Please take a few minutes to look over the information.  Always feel free to contact me with questions.

Your child will be using a daily planner to keep track of assignments, due dates, homework, and personal reminders.  You may also communicate with me by writing a note.  I do not need you to sign this everyday but I would encourage you to ask your child to share with you what they are working on.  Your child will need to bring their planning to school and home everyday. 

It is my privilege and pleasure to be a part of your child's educational family!!! I'm dedicated to ensuring that your each student is prepared to meet opportunities and challenges of their future!!!

Ms. Hess-Tilton
