First grade is a year of exploration. Across the curriculum students learn to question, think, and build confidence through loving guidance and expectation. With a wide variety of field trips and hands-on activities, students enjoy science, building reading fluency, expressing themselves through writing, giving speeches and presentations, and using math skills in many subjects including Art, Music, Drama, and P.E. Woven throughout are themes of responsibility, resourcefulness, and a sense of civic duty. First grade is a great year for building character and setting the stage for a lifetime of learning with curiosity and joyfulness.
At the end of First Grade, students move across the hall for Second Grade!
