Dear Hewes Families,

 We will be beginning 6th grade Human Growth and Development instruction in my class on Monday, June 3th, 2002.  In order to give you every opportunity to simultaneously discuss this information with your child, I have included a calendar of what is planned for our class.  In addition to any written work, students will have an oral homework assignment each night.  Students will be asked to relate to their parent/guardian what was discussed in class and have you sign the appropriate worksheets.  Please take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to continue relevant discussions at home.  If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at 730-7348 or email (
