6th grade students will eat lunch as an entire grade at 10:28 a.m. Lunches presently cost $1.75/$2.00 and milk is 40 cents. Students may instead purchase a-la-carte items such as bagels, pizza, salads, various fruits and desserts. Breakfast can also be purchased for $1.25/$1:50. It is important that students recognize the need for choosing a healthy lunch.
If your child has money left in his/her account at the end of June, the money will be available the first day of school, September 4th.

Any money owed to the school lunch program should be mailed to: Hudson School Food Service, 20 Library Street, Hudson, NH 03051.

Students, parents, and teachers can use the assignment books as an important tool of communication. Parents are asked to check assignment books on a regular basis.
The 6th Grade Guidance Counselor for your students will be Mrs. Mary Jo Howe. The Guidance Department offers individual, small group, and classroom guidance services including study skills.
INCOMING PARENT AND STUDENT TOURS
Our counselors will be available Tuesday and Wednesday, August 21st and 22nd, from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm. The counselors will be giving tours of Hudson Memorial for interested parents and students also on Tuesday and Wednesday, August 21st and 22nd. These group tours will start in the main lobby of the school at 10:00 am and 1:00 pm. No appointment is necessary.
On the first day of school, students will be issued individual lockers as close to their homerooms as possible. Students can rent a lock for $9.00, with the money returned when the lock is given back at the end of the year. For building security reasons, locks must be rented from the school. Personal locks are not allowed. 6th grade students do not use book bags/back packs to carry their belongings to class.
SPORTS, CLUBS, ETC.
Sports and clubs are offered throughout the school year. Fall interscholastic sports are Boys and Girls Soccer and X-Country. Intramural sports are Flag Football and Volleyball. Intramurals require no tryouts and are open to all students.
Boys and Girls Soccer tryouts for the 2012 season will begin on Monday, August 27th and go through Wednesday, August 29th, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. The X-Country team will begin their practices Wednesday, September 5th, from 2:20 to 3:15 p.m. Students participating in X-Country will be able to take the late bus home.
All students trying out for Boys or Girls Soccer and the X-Country team must have a physical form on file in the nurse's office prior to tryouts. Students may return their completed forms along with the physical forms to Mr. John Fichera, Athletic Director, before the end of the school year or their respective coaches on the first day of tryouts. If you have any questions, you may contact John Fichera, Athletic Director, at 886-1240, ext. 1791.
Clubs at Memorial are offered at various times of the year. Some examples of clubs that have been offered are Art Club, Curtain Club, Ski Club, and Bowling Club.
Students must listen to daily announcements for the formation of sports teams and clubs. It is their responsibility to pick up needed forms and applications and to return them on the proper date. Announcements for sports and clubs run daily at the beginning and close of school at least a week prior to their beginning.
The Memorial School PTO meets on the 3rd Wednesday of each month in the Media Center at 7:00 p.m. The PTO is a very active organization that operates many fund-raising events, student, family, and school activities during the year. These meetings also give parents an opportunity to have input on school decisions and to voice concerns. The PTO and Volunteer Program work hand-in-hand with the Memorial School to make it a better place for our students.

Dear Incoming Sixth Graders and Parents/Guardians,
In support of our district mathematics goals, the mathematics teachers of Hudson Memorial School would like to encourage all students to continue the practice of their math skills throughout the summer months. Therefore, all incoming students will be required to complete the attached summer mathematics practice packet for the upcoming 2012-2013 school year.
During the first week of school, sixth grade teachers will evaluate each student's understanding of the mathematics problems in the summer packet with an assessment. It is expected that students show all of their work on additional paper. There is not enough room to show all your work in the packet, so please make sure to keep your scrap paper to show your math teacher in the fall. You may want to do your work in a designated math notebook so you do not lose it before the new school year. Along with the packet, we have supplied a sheet for you to place all of your answers. Please make sure that you take the time to transfer all of your answers to this sheet before the first day of school. Teachers will review the answers to these problems on the first days of school so that the students can check their answers. All sixth grade math classes will then give all of the students an assessment based on the summer material, so teachers will have a benchmark of each student's mathematical ability within the first week of school.
Since all of the problems being given are review from previous years in school we are using this packet as an opportunity to move quickly into new mathematical concepts so that students have more time to master the new material. While parental assistance is always helpful, we ask that you let your child try every problem on their own first so they can see if they can successfully do the problems without help. If a student is having difficulty with a particular concept we encourage them to go online to the various mathematics help sites such as the Khan Academy (http://www.khanacademy.org) or Math Odyssey (http://www.compasslearningodyssey.com) to view help videos so that they may come to school at the end of August with a completed packet. Sincerely, The Hudson Memorial School Sixth Grade Mathematics Team
