Dear Parents,

Please help me provide the best education possible for you child by monitoring progress at home.  You may contact me via email jhudson@mctns.net if you notice any potential problems. Each student in my classroom is assigned a TI-84 calculator to use while at school.  If they are damaged or lost due to negligence, you will be responsible for its repair or replacement. I look forward to a wonderful year with great leaps of knowledge!

Sincerely,

Jennifer Hudson
