Hickory Flat ElementaryWelcome from Dr. HawkinsHickory Flat Elementary
    Dear Parents,


    Welcome to an exciting new school year!! I hope you and your child had a terrific summer break!!  I look forward to working with your child and helping him/her to achieve his/her maximum potential. 

    My name is Varie Hudson Hawkins and I will be your child’s second grade teacher. This will be my 29th year as an elementary school teacher in grades K-5. I spent most of my summer playing with my youngest grandchildren, ages two and five, and catching up on my reading. I LOVE to READ and grew up with books and no television. I grew up in Louisiana and have lived in various states and in Europe as part of my Army career and as a military spouse.

    I believe that a good parent-teacher relationship is necessary for maximum school success. Throughout the year I will communicate with you through notes, Remind, Dojo, telephone calls, newsletters and progress reports, report cards, and parent-teacher conferences.s  My door is alway open to you and I am willing to collaborate with you for the success of your child. I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns at any time. You may contact me at school by calling (770.898.0107), by sending me a note or email to vhudsonhawkins@henry.k12.ga.us.

    In closing, I would like to say that I am willing to work very hard to make learning an exciting and successful experience for your child. Failure is never an option in my work with children.  I look forward to meeting you and your child.
