    Dear Parents,

    Welcome to an exciting yet different school year!! I hope you and your child had a restful and reflective summer!  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 30th year as an elementary school teacher in grades K-5. I spent most of my summer playing with my youngest grandchildren, ages three and five, and catching up on my reading and computer skills. 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-student relationship is necessary for maximum school success. You and I will be able to communicate on a daily basis with Class Dojo and during weekly meetings with Google Meets.  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), or by sending an 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 and working with you and your child.
