    Ms. Zamora~ Room 1020


    Dear Parents,

    On behalf of the Kitty Hawk Middle School 6th grade Social Studies team, I am happy to welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure students achieve their highest potential. We recognize that to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a significant difference in your child’s education.

    We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that your child:

    1) Attends school daily, arrives on time to every class

    2) Completes all work assignments given

    3) Shares what they are learning

    4) does their part to be successful in this class

    I am attaching a page of Social Studies expectations to this letter. The last page will need to be filled out and returned. The form provides an expedient means of communicating and collaborating, and it will be kept on file in the classroom.

    Please return the completed form by before August 25, 2023.

    It is important to work as a team to guarantee a safe and productive school year. I am privileged to be a part of this school family, and I am honored to share in your child’s academic journey.  Thank you for your support and please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
