Important Team Perito Information For Parents



The Team Perito teachers remind you to ask your child about his or her homework every night.  As part of this reminder, we must debunk some common homework myths:

"I did my homework in school" - FALSE!  We do not have a study hall or any other time period during which homework can be done during the day.




Math -  During the first marking period, students will be introduced to integers.  Your child will work on problems involving many contexts and learn how to solve real world problems involving integers. The variety of settings will help your child understand integers much deeper. Students will work with money, games, golf, temperature, discounts, tax, tip, and business type situations, to model operations with integers. You can help your child by asking them to describe some real-world situations in which integers are used. If you have any questions please feel free to E-mail or call 203 – 407 – 7249 

In English, students will begin the year with a narrative writing unit. They will learn how to generate ideas from moments they’ve experienced and values they hold dear. Students will then move into developing characters and creating scenes for their stories. They will use their stories to bring readers on a journey with the characters toward the discovery life lessons. By the end of the unit, students will publish an original realistic fiction story.

Mr. Tremper's social studies-  Welcome to 7th grade social studies.  I am very excited to be able to work with all of you this year!  The first unit of study will be the 5 themes of location, place, human-environment interaction, movement, and region.  These tools will allow students to have an utility belt to better understand the world around them, as we move on to explore different world regions.  The first world region we will be studying is the Middle East.  In each region, we will study the rich, ancient culture and move on to contemporary issues in the area today.  The class setting, and learning format will vary.  Students will be working collaboratively, doing a variety of activities such as, classroom debates, group projects, and writing proposals to real world issues.  Essentially, I want my students to think critically while looking at real world issues.  Please contact me with any questions at or call 203-407-7251.  Best of luck to all this year!

Mrs. Kim’s science students will be working hard this year! Right from the start, students will learn how to be safe in a laboratory setting and practice using science equipment such as beakers, test tubes, and clamps. After becoming comfortable in their new environment, students will sharpen their observing and questioning skills as well as their skills in drawing inferences and conclusions. Students will also become familiar with measurable qualities such as distance, mass, temperature, volume, time, and electric charge. Our first major unit of study will incorporate all the scientific skills they have become familiar with to help them figure out how temperature affects the behavior of air. Science will be a very active, hands-on classroom for everyone.

House 4 Expectations



  • You are expected to be in class, working silently on the “DO NOW” when the late bell rings. Students who are tardy to class two times per week, per class, may be assigned a teacher detention.


  • You will be allowed to visit your locker at the following times: before homeroom, before lunch, and before dismissal


  • If you need to use the bathroom, you must obtain permission from a team teacher and fill out your agenda pass.  If you have forgotten your agenda, you must wait until the last 5 minutes of class.

    Please do not enter the bathrooms during passing times, please go to your next class and obtain permission from your teacher before going.

    The reason for these rules is very simple, your teachers must know where you are at all times, in case of emergency.

    Remember, the bathrooms are provided for the entire HMS family to use, so please do your part to help keep them clean and usable. Team teachers will be checking the bathroom throughout the day to ensure that they are kept in usable order. Sign-out sheets will be archived and monitored.


  • To stay after with an on-team teacher on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday, students must sign up, so that teachers may plan accordingly. Students must have permission in advance from the teacher with whom they will be staying. Permission must be obtained before the end of the student’s class with that teacher on the day before the student wishes to stay. Students may only stay after for academic reasons, or if requested to do so by a teacher.

Students of the Month

Each month, two students who exhibit good citizenship, effort, or other exemplary qualities will be selected as “Students of the Month."
